It’s Autumn here in Cape Town and those cool mornings and cooler evenings are reminding us that winter is on its way. On the up side, it means the season is changing and our clothes will be changing. We get to experiment with different styles and new trends. So fun!
I have a secret to tell you!
Shoes and I have a secret to tell you…we are having an affair! Just kidding, but seriously – I absolutely love shoes. Each season they bring out new designs and new trends and it is really fun to play with style, especially now that my daughter is getting a little older.
“It’s an investment, really”, she tells her husband with a sparkle in her eye. Stay with me here…with the right selection, it can be. Selecting a good pair of boots or sneakers can be a base for several different outfits.
Boots I love
1. Dorothy Suede
I have to start with a practical but fun pair, something you can wear to the office or out and about with the kids.
Every gal needs a suitable ankle boot for all occasions, and this one gets a yes from us. It features a wooden block heel and a contrasting suede upper – giving it just enough edge and sophistication. Pair yours with skinny jeans and a black button up top for an urban look you’ll love.
How about a Cassie Sugarplum vibe?

2. Nicola Red
These scream “look at me”! You need at least one pair like this for Autumn. Fun for a night out with the girls or hubby.
Superheroes have capes and cool girls have boots…
This stunning pair has been made with a pointed-toe design and a sleek finish. Match them with biker pants and a bold leather jacket for a Charlie’s Angels-esque look.
For those slightly colder days – there are so many ways to play with style when it comes to these boots.
Over-the-knee boots make for effortless style, and you need at least one pair in your footwear selection. This pair has faux-suede construction, a low block heel and zip details on the inner leg. Match or contrast them with a bodycon dress for a simple but eye-catching look.
Sneakers I love
Because every women deserves a little bling in her life!
The chunky sole is all the rage when it comes to sneaker trends, so this pair would be a worthy addition to your collection. They sit on a stylish, contoured wide sole, and feature a glitter-filled colouring on the upper and faux leather detailing on the heel tab. Wear them with a simple look to let the shoes do the talking.
2. Aztec OG metallic
These Reeboks are absolutely gorgeous and totally functional for a day out with the family!
A sneaker for the true connoisseur, the Aztec OG will make a worthy addition to any shoe collection. It’s constructed with a comfortable chunky sole and a textile and suede upper in a subtle pink and chalk colourway. Pair with light mom jeans and an oversized sweater.
3. Campus W
Lastly, something a little different. Not just for casual/sport wear!
These women’s court-inspired shoes feature matte-finish branded details for an elevated look and feel. Authentic design elements keep this pair true to the original Campus style.
