Barkers Boots & Peter Kaiser Shoes going to Holland !

Having organized a trip to Holland, Jane was after a new pair of boots, and some simple shoes that would last the transition from day to evening.

Jane originally tried a pair of Hispanitas ankle boots, but they didn’t look quite right on her feet, so tried on a pair of beautiful Barkers, as suggested by Ed, of course. The suede is in a soft burgundy, with a couple of leather buckles around the ankle and a solid leather heel.

They’ll look great with thick grey tights, and a woollen skirt, or even just jeans and a chunky knitted jumper.

The Peter Kaiser evening shoes are in a similar colour palette to the boots, in a deeper purple shade with a black elastic section at the top of the foot.

The toe elegantly tapers inward and the tiny lift at the back make them a sophisticated alternative to a ballet pump.

Jane’s been playing about with a few outfits to match with each pair, meaning her suitcase won’t be totally filled with different shoes for different clothes! A silk printed scarf and simple sparkly beads go beautifully with a crisp white shirt and funky trousers.

One thing she won’t be forgetting, are her new shoe trees…
