Aren’t these ankle boots from JD Williams absolutely divine? Sadly, I wasn’t able to take super duper photos outside because of this horrendous weather affecting parts of the US where I am at the moment. There’s one hell of a snow storm hitting the east coast as I write. Luckily, we’re safe in Saratoga Springs tonight!


Gorgeous JD Williams Boots

But back to these absolutely gorgeous boots – I was kindly gifted them from JD Williams just before Christmas and I’ve worn them a few times since. I can honestly say they are the most comfortable ankle boots I’ve EVER worn. They’re like wearing super comfy soft slippers. In fact I wore them out to dinner last night (the restaurant is connected to the hotel so we didn’t have to step outside) and the hostess couldn’t keep her eyes off them, commenting how much she loved them when we sat down!

Warmth & Comfort

Although the JD Williams boots are not particularly dressy, I figured I’d need warmth and comfort during my holidays and I was right. I just wish the weather would warm up enough for me to wear them a little more often outside. At least I know they’re going to get oodles of wear when I get home. So they’ll probably be on the blog all the time for the next few months (actually… probably for years to come considering the fabulous quality they are!). The boots themselves are actually Rieker ‘anti-stress’ footwear which explains the wonderful comfort they offer. If you’re looking for some new footwear, I recommend you check out the JD Williams site, which has a huge variety of shoes, boots and some really great clothes and lingerie too (not to mention the electricals, homewear, kids stuff and more).

The simple outfit

Because I’ve been living in jeans (with thick uber-warm thermals underneath), last night I wanted to wear one of the dresses I brought with me on holiday. It’s been on the blog once before, just under a year ago, and I do love its warmth and A-line shape. It’s pretty yet practical (and you know how I love practicality!). Opaque black tights and my infinity scarf from Scotland finished this simple look off. I wanted the JD Williams boots to stand out, and judging from the restaurant hostess’s response, I achieved that!

For now though, it’s back to the cold weather and my snow boots… but hopefully I’ll be back soon with some outdoor photos!

Stay warm, folks!

  • They’re not the sort of boots I would be drawn to, but they look great with your outfit and the fact they’re comfortable is a huge bonus!

    • I couldn’t agree more, Gail! To be honest, they weren’t the kind of boots I’d usually be drawn to either but recently I decided to be try things that are a little different. I’m glad I did. I love them!!

    I’m getting hit with that snow! And the freezing cold. So sorry it hit while you’re visiting the east coast. My son loves it. He’s only been having a few days of school a week, the rest have been cancelled.

    Those are some cute boots!

    • Oh no, Elizabeth! I hope the snow isn’t causing too much trouble for you!
