Transitioning into Autumn/Winter with


When I think of autumn/winter seasons I usually think about over-sized knitwear and flowy dresses with tights and a cool hat to keep the ears warm. However I’m all about a really stylish boots or sneakers to pull an outfit together. I’ve partnered up with to show you my picks of boots and sneakers that I would love to invest in this year.

I’m definitely a mom on the go and I prefer footwear that is comfortable and cozy. I feel like the cowboy style is coming in this year as well as the metallic footwear however I’m too plain Jane for metallic anything so I’ll leave that to the fashionistas. Black boots are always classic and you can never go wrong with them but I’ve been drawn towards the tan and light brown boots lately. These picks I think are really stylish and mostly ankle boots, because I find that ankle boots accommodate my thick calves, any mom that are on the curvier side would tell you that they find long boots to be a problem because of their calves. I find ankle boots to be best for me because I can pair it with virtually anything. Here are some boots that I’ve been obsessing over.

Elisabeth leather boot by Vero Moda (here) and you can find them in cognac and black. This boot gives me all sorts of feels, this style is literally my go to pair of boots. I love ankle boots like these because you can pair it with anything. The best way I would style this boot is by pairing it with a pair of jeans exposing the ankles, an oversized top and sunnies. A perfect look for a mom doing a shopping run.

Polini by Footwork (here), it’s pointy, its shiny patent leather, its night time appropriate and sleek, literally everything that a fashionista is going to require for a night time sexy look. This boot makes me think of the eighties with over the top colours and stockings. But for this mom who loves statement boots for a night out, I’d pair these boots up with a black A-line dress and a leather jacket.

Naya boot by Vero Moda (here) , I’m obsessed with the snake skin detail, perfect for a cold rainy day when everything else is gloomy and dull. I would pair these beauties with a fun bohemian inspired dress, stockings and parka jacket.

Righto with sneakers I’m all about comfort and that can go with day time or night time outfits. A universal sneaker that can give me that mom on the go feeling of being able to get things done without having to worry about my feet hurting. I like bold statement pieces as well as sleek sneakers, and by sleek I mean, black with clean cut lines. Below you will find three picks that I think will be well suited for everyone.

Az Tec OG Metallic by Reebok (here), these sneakers are definitely designed for the mom on the go, who needs comfort and a sophisticated look. I’d pair these with a pair of mom jeans, white t-shirt and oversized knitted top.

Old Skool platforms by Van (here), these are highly popular sneakers in Cape Town at the moment. You can pair them with literally anything, day and night appropriate, comfortable, stylish and worn by all the cool kids. Then again even moms. These sneakers are perfect for a laid back “I didn’t make an effort but still look stylish look”. For a breakfast date with my girlfriends; I’d wear these sneakers with a flowy wrap dress, hat and an over the shoulder satchel handbag.

Gel Quantum 180 2 MX by Asics (here), these sneakers are made for runners, but moms run around all the time too, so it’s perfect because they are so comfortable, breathable and bold. I don’t mind letting the sneakers be the bold item in my ensemble, so I’d pair these beauties with a light faded skinny jeans, plain t-shirt, and light weight trench coat.

If you download the app on your mobile devices and join the family, you will receive a R250, 00 off your first purchase and that in my books is a win – win for all. The convenience of purchasing your fashion items off your mobile device within the comfort of your own home is amazing but then again if you have the app on your mobile device, you can literally purchase off the website from any location.

Please go and check out the online store and send me your picks of boots and sneakers. I would love to see what you have chosen and how you would pair the items.

Until next time
