The best ankle boots for fall / winter

The best ankle boots for fall / winter

Autumn is here! My summer was great but I can’t wait for the upcoming season. Autumn is one of my favorite! South Tyrol turns into this beautiful colorful scenery. I just love it!

It’s time to get all those lovely booties out from the cellar. I mostly wear black boots. After all these years, I’ve got quite a collection. Luckily I’ve invested a bit more in each pair so I’ve been having them for years now. This winter, I definitely need a pair of marine blue boots and a lovely pair of light suede booties. Seeing all the beautiful models below I can’t really decide which ones to get, though!

  • Hurry up to buy winter boots as the best get sold out very quickly!

The best ankle boots for FALL / WINTER

Black winter boots

Everyone should own one good pair of black ankle boots. The good thing is that they’re perfect for daily life.

  • My favorite pair of black winter boots are my EMU Australia Chelsea boots. I’ve just seen that they’ve lowered the price. Best thing about them is that they’re fur-lined inside – they’re so warm! Best purchase ever.

I’m not a huge fan of grey in general. However, it works really well as boots. Best thing is that grey suede leather boots go well with everything.

Of course, the one brown pair of boots I fell in love with is over 500€. Whyyy? On the other hand, boots are the only thing I would also be willing to invest more. I wear them every single day in winter!

Metallic / patent leather boots

Metallic leather boots are definitely a great eye catcher. As you can see I can’t really decide because I love all of them. A pair of patent leather boots is definitely missing in my collection.

Maybe the last one!

Wow – I’m actually tanned this summer. Can’t believe it! Finally, my ‘aristocratic pallor’ is gone (I had to work all summer last year). But I’m sure the tan will go sooner or later in September. Let’s see if the South of France still has some sun in a few weeks! Here in South Tyrol, it’s quite cloudy right now and I’m using the time to finally finish my Vietnam Travel Posts – yaaay! Can’t wait to show you all the pictures. They’re definitely one of my favorites.

Here’s one last look from Mauritius, wearing an autumnal floral blouse along with my favorite metallic skirt. And oh-em-geh! With these heels I’m 15cm taller! These cute platform heels have been a decoration on my shelf for two years now and I’ve never worn them. Actually, they don’t look so bad! I will switch the platform sandals with a pair of ballet pumps for now. Or wear the whole look with a pair of booties!

August recap – solo traveling for a bit?

So far, I can only repeat myself saying that this summer has been one of my best. Taking time off consciously, being my own boss, traveling as much as I can but also enjoying enough time back home. Right now, I feel like I’m ready for a new adventure, which in my case will probably be a move to a new city. For now, it isn’t sure yet and I will let you know as soon as possible.

What happened this month? I tried to stay mostly at home in August and enjoy the summer in South Tyrol. This included for example a beautiful hike to Kratzbergersee in the surroundings of Meran, time at the beautiful lakes, BBQ at home but also working on some architectural projects. Moreover, I was in Berlin with Sensodyne. But the best was yet to come. I flew to Mauritius for a huge project with my mum. More impressions of it will follow soon!

in a nutshell: South Tyrol – Munich – Berlin – South Tyrol – Mauritius – Fano

… about solo traveling vs traveling with friends. I traveled a lot on my own in the past months but I’m so terrible at being alone. I’ve realized that solo traveling isn’t for me at all. I just got home from five beautiful days at my friend’s country house in the Marche (region adjacent to Tuscany). We’d already been there six years ago with a bigger group of friends. Going on vacation with friends is a complete other thing than my work trips. Therefore, I tried to put away the phone as much as I could. Being surrounded by people you love is just the best! Luckily, I’ve got one more trip with my girlfriends planned in September and I can’t wait!

Monthly favorites WISHLIST

I definitely exaggerated this month. I felt the urgent need to get some new clothes and did some online shopping. I’ve already shown you some of the items in my latest looks. But I also got rid of many pieces.

Here’s a little wishlist for fall. I’m sorry for all the dark colors already but the bad weather today inspired me!

I’ve read so much! Since I’ve discovered a great book app I read non-stop this month – 7 books is definitely my record in a while! The trip in Mauritius was perfect to read but also the days in Italy. Here are a couple of books I’ve read. Did I mention that I love chick-lit?

I absolutely took advantage of my Netflix subscription. I’ve started to watch Jane the Virgin. To be honest, the trailer looked quite boring. However, as soon as I’ve started with episode one I was caught. In the first night, I watched 10 episodes. It’s been quite a while since I watched series until 5pm. I’ve finished all three seasons now and hopefully the fourth will come out soon!

Montly favorites planned – travels

September will be all about renovating our attic back home. I can’t wait the work to start and would love to see the result right away. I’ll be in Stuttgart next week for a work trip. As I said, I’ve got another girls trip planned at the end of September.

Summer shorts with frills & crop top

Can’t believe summer is slowly coming to an end. But as long as I can wear shorts during the day, I’m one happy kid. I’m currently editing all the pictures from Mauritius while I’m still at my friend’s house in the Marche (Italy). As per usual, I’m so much faster editing outfit pictures! Also, the locations on Mauritius were absolutely gorgeous! The Long Beach Golf & Spa Resort with its modern architecture was a dream.

This crop top has been hanging in my closet for two years now and I’ve never worn it. Well, the right bottom had always been missing and when I spotted these cute summer shorts with frills, they were calling for it. Moreover, I’ve already shown you these white sandals from Asos, which I got in the sales. I hope you enjoy the pictures!
