How often do you find that you are rooting around in your wardrobe and come across some items that you have not worn for ages, but are still rather taken with?  Well, that happened to me today and I thought it was opportune to share my finds with you.  They were in the shape of knee length boots, which are definitely not something I wear that often, so felt a style challenge coming on.

First up is this pair of suede boots from a company called Duo - which has since re-branded and is now called Ted and Muffy but still offer a fabulous array of boots at different heights and most importantly calf widths.  I have very slim legs and so most knee high boots are just too big and look like wellies, but these are a fabulous fit and I thoroughly recommend them.   

They feature this rather snazzy button detailing and are a really good height on the leg.  Not only does Ted & Muffy offer different calf widths (21 in total!) but has different ankle cuts, different boot heights and four different toe cuts, so you can really customise your boot - not just for fit but for the style too.... a really good service and one that opens up boot wearing to all shapes and sizes.  Just go to this link to see how versatile this makes things, not just for knee highs, but for ankle boots too.  Clever. 

I was very glad to see that Daphne was prepared to join the photographic experience as well... she definitely adds a certain something to the pictures.   I have styled these boots with my trusty skinny leg Acne jeans and fitted coat from COS, hoping that this is not making me look as if I am about to go hunting.  

Next up are some really ancient pull on boots from M&S.   Also knee high, although you can't see that here, these are a style of boots that they do year in and year out and are really comfortable and easy to wear.  They have a slightly elasticated top so stay up and are made in  a synthetic material which is very hard wearing.  I don't have shapely ankles so I like to wear a boot under cropped trousers or a longer length skirt as they add shape. As these are not leather, the fact that they have some calf shaping still works for me as they are not standing off from my leg at the top.  I have had them for so long I can't even remember when I bought them, but they genuinely still do get worn every winter.  

I have combined them here with some cropped black wool trousers from H & M which were sent to me for a post that I did in conjunction with my daughter (as seen here)  They are not something I would wear with shoes but I think they look rather smart with these boots and they are very comfortable as they have a drawstring waist.  

Of course, COS features again,with this open fronted cardigan that I purchased at the end of last year.  It is really cosy and I love the length which I think is very flattering with trousers. Although they don't have this exact one they are now doing a lovely pale pink version for the spring, which I will definitely be looking at.  The polo neck is from M & Co and I think is now ready for the bin as the neck is getting wider and wider.  But it has served me well so I am not complaining.
