May is one of our favourite months; we love the long evenings, the sunshine (we’re still pinching ourselves) and we can’t ignore the fact we’re treated to not one, but two Bank Holidays! The late May Bank Holiday is now almost upon us and we're hoping for another scorcher; the perfect chance to spend time outside, catch up with friends or enjoy a city break.

All of this fun can present us with wardrobe dilemmas, so if you’re in need of some outfit inspiration, our expert stylists have put together some easy-to-wear looks. If ankle boots don’t usually spring to mind for warm weather styling, then think again. They’ll add a chic twist to your skirts, dresses and shorts and they offer a great way of transitioning into summer looks, especially if you’re not quite ready to expose the toes or if you’re enjoying the long evenings.


The Walk in the Country

For a stroll in the country (and perhaps a Sunday lunch in the village pub), pair Balla ankle boots with denim shorts and black top for a relaxed look. The brogue detailing and laces also lend themselves perfectly to a boho vibe with your summer maxi dresses. Time to lace up and start exploring!

Also available in Conker Brown Leather and Blue Nubuck.


The Garden Party

We’re expecting at least one garden party or BBQ to crop up over the weekend, so if you are too, stay cool in a strapless dress and accessorise with your sunnies and a contrasting bag. We love to pair blue with orange for a summer look that’s bound to turn heads!

These Arietty blue ankle boots come in Jeans Blue Nubuck; a fabulous shade to complement almost all your summer shades, and a style you can wear all summer long and into the autumn.

Also available in Tan Leather & Khaki Nubuck.


The City Break

If you’re planning a weekend getaway, versatility is key when it comes to packing! Take along a few key items like a blue denim skirt and halter neck top - pack a couple of tops to alternate and you’ll have a new outfit everyday! Our Edison ankle boots go with everything, offering a stylish twist on the classic Chelsea boot, yet the comfortable heel height is ideal for days out seeing the sights.
