Hi guys, I’m back! I took a much needed blogging break. I was in a little bit of a rut. I was dealing with real life stuff and also stressed out about what I thought my blog should be about. Silly, I know. This is my place to express myself and share whatever I want. The content here is still going to be about beauty, fashion and my life. I want to connect with my readers more, so I will share more of me with you. Welcome back! So about these boots…
I’ve been eyeing the Acne “Jenson” boots from afar for quite some time now but I never added them to my cart. I’ve been obsessed with the simplicity of the black leather boots; you guys know that that is my aesthetic. The only thing that stopped me from purchasing them was the price tag. I thought that I’d have to suck it up and just buy them. I mean, they are an investment. That was until I saw these boots at & Other Stories. They cost less than half the price of the Acne boots and are very similar in style.
I purchased the leather version but they also come in suede. I am obsessed with these boots, they are perfect to wear year round. I’m already imagining outfits for each season. I can’t wait to pair them with a dress for Spring/Summer. These are my first pair of Chelsea boots (I’m late, I know). My criteria while shopping for the perfect pair of Chelsea boots was they had to be simple, affordable for my budget and high quality. The & Other Stories options checked all three boxes, so I went with them.
I’m pretty sure I’m still going to end up buying the Acne Jensen boots since there are a few details that make them unique like the silver metal around the toe and the grain leather. These from & Other Stories are just a nice alternative for someone who doesn’t want to spend $500+ on shoes. For me, these are something to hold me over until Fall when I’m more likely to buy the Jensen boots.
