Since becoming vegetarian, and on my way to being vegan, I have become more conscious about buying clothing sourced from animals including wool, leather and suede. I no longer buy leather goods, and don’t own any leather boots since my last pair wore out. Purchasing boots that weren’t leather proved to be pretty easy actually, ASOS have tonnes of options and they’re half the price of the leather alternatives (perks!).
If you are considering making some ethical changes to your wardrobe then visit the PETA website, they have some great information for beginners about why animal skin products aren’t the best for the ole’ conscience.
ASOS – Reynold Western Ankle Boots
Here is a pair that I recently bought from ASOS, as you can tell I’m all about that pointed Chelsea boot. I find them the easiest style of boots to wear and they are so comfy. I absolutely love the look of snake skin boots, but obviously don’t like where they come from so when I saw these gems on ASOS – I was sold! As soon as they arrived I was hooked! The quality of them is incredible, and I wore them to work all day with no pain. In fact, lots of people asked me if they were from the very expensive Mi Piaci (oooh!).
Here I’ve picked out some of my favourite accessories from the last few weeks to pair with them. As you can probably tell, I’m all about the western sort of look at the mo’! I’ve mostly been wearing mine with either denim jeans or a skirt, and a basic tee. I find that because they are a heavily detailed boot, they dress even a basic outfit up!
As always, thanks so much for reading! What would you wear these boots with? xo
