Hi, my name is Rosie and I’m a shoe-aholic. I no longer have room in my house for all of my shoes, and Tom is less than impressed with the piles of shoeboxes dotted around, let alone the fact that shoes are stored in two wardrobes, a shoe-rack and a shoe-cupboard as well as being kicked off under desks and sofas and in piles on the stairs.
Previously I limited my shoe buying to heels, flats and boots, but now trainers have started to creep in too. These days I frequently treat myself to new running shoes and gym shoes, then I fall in love with how comfy they are and start buying trainers that will look good with jeans, or even wedge trainers to toughen up pretty dresses. You would be forgiven for thinking this is my Nike trainers collection – nope – these are the Nike trainers I’ve amassed in the last few weeks – oops!

No September shoe-buying spree though would be complete without a foray into the world of A/W footwear. I wanted some cut-out boots, and I wanted a couple of things that were fleece-lined and would keep my toes warm. I guess with the trainers thing too I’m starting to lean towards comfortable footwear – these days I wear heels much less often and am seeking increasingly to enscond my feet in something cosy and comfortable. If you haven’t already deducted me major style points already for that practical over beautiful related statement then get ready to discredit me forever. Yes, I bought some Uggs.
I know they’re not exactly plastered all over Lookbook or tramping down catwalks but flippin ‘ell are they comfy. For quick trips to the shops or casual days out at the weekend, I’m afraid sheepskin-warm feet are happening. I actually think they look cute with a plaid shirt and skinny jeans, so sue me!

Ankle boots are always my shoe du jour in A/W so I’ve picked up a couple of new pairs of them too, a pair from ASOS and some cutout boots from New Look (same as in the other snap above). I love the cutout boots, they look awesome with jeans or dresses, I think they’re going to get a lot of wear!
What’s on your shoe wishlist for A/W?
