A/W Ankles

A/W Ankles

Every year I swear I will ditch the skinny jeans. But then every year I resort to the wretched bastards because they are the only things that don’t look completely ridiculous with a pair of socks.

How do the fashionistas do it? They never seem to have to wear socks with their outfits. Do they just not have to spend an hour pounding cold pavements on the morning school run? And what about when it rains? I have a pair of Sorel boots - not the cool ones - that are just the downpour ticket from a practical pov but my mum says I look like a landscape gardener. Which is fine, I mean, I’d love to be a landscape gardener but tbh at heart I am a Sloane with an identity crisis and I’d rather look like an Instagram influencer with 89.4k followers than a millennial Charlie Dimmock.

So yup, this is the year. Again. I need something more forgiving now anyway on account of the extra stone I’m lugging around my arse area (thanks, Mirena..). So what if my ankles have to be amputated from the resulting frostbite. There’s no gain without pain in fashion.
