So I signed up to the mailing list a while ago, I love a lot of the clothes on there- particularly The Row, and obviously lots of the shoes. However this mailing list e-mails me weekly with mouth wateringly amazing products that I am unfortunately yet to be able afford, 'yet' being the dominant word, so I often take to just putting the e-mails straight into the trash without opening. However, this weeks caught my eye, 'Modern Match, Boots and Dresses make the perfect match', and it was a photo of Olivia Palermo in this gorgeous patterned draped mini dress paired with a pair of grey lace up heeled shoe boots and then a link to lots of their dresses paired with some more of their yummy shoes... see here.

Before I go any further I just want to add that I am not remotely a fan of Olivia Palmero (after her appearance on The City) and it grates on me slightly that I am endorsing her on my blog, but she does have a sickeningly amazing wardrobe, and amongst it all basically every pair of shoes that Charlotte Olympia has designed, so I am just going to put my jealousy dislike aside for the moment to give you some examples, cos she does kind of rock this trend.

As Net-a-Porter is out of my reach for the moment, and whether you want to smarten up a floral day dress with calf length heel boots or make a black draped dress more casual with tassled flats, I have scoured the internet for my favourite (mostly affordable) ankle / shoe boots on the market at the moment. Also loving the variations of Chelsea Boots which are in stores at the moment, which would also work well with the dress combo.

Momentum, Kurt Geiger, £180
Yellow Fringed Boots, River Island, £34.99
Annex Chocolate High Leg Platform Heeled Boots, Topshop, £70
Brogue Ankle Boot, New Look, £24.99
Aim Black Suede Cut Out Ankle Boots, Topshop, £80
Valerie, KG by Kurt Geiger, £140

George Black Suede Lace Up Shoe Boots, Topshop, £60 (Also available in Leopard) Although I actually think these would look better with thinner, round cord or black shoe laces. Don't like these thick ones.
