the creeper chelsea boot

Say hello to the latest addition to my shoe collection and my new footwear staple  - these gorgeous creeper/chelsea boot hybrids that were ever so kindly sent to me by Linzi. I've worked with Linzi on a few occasions (see here) and always love the items they send me! If you haven't looked on the website or visited one of their stores make sure that you do; they sell lovely, fashion forward footwear (I thought of that one myself!) at affordable prices and are definitely worth a browse! I've also got my eye on these double-sole creepers lookalikes which are right up my street! 

The boots arrived yesterday and in my excitement I wore them to school today without having photographed them first (bad blogger), hence the little bit of dust on the toe of one of them! After a full day's wear I can confirm that they are sturdy, practical, comfy, go with everything and catch you a fair few compliments! Sizing wise, Linzi do recommend downsizing from what you normally are as the boots come up big - I'm usually a 7, however these are a 6 and fit like a glove.
The 'Orly' boots are such a cool take on the bog standard chelsea boot, and as I'm sure you're all aware I do tend to live in my creepers so these make an excellent, wintry alternative. I paired them with these little grey ankle socks today, however can't wait to wear them with a whole host of other things this a/w such as camo jackets, riding pants, large knits and pleather skirts; the possibilities are endless so prepare to see a lot more of these bad boys! 

What do you think?

I love these! I really couldn't work out if I'd wear them though. I think the only way to find out is to buy and try!

Those boots are gorgeous! I love how they look paired with ankle socks and like you say, the perfect twist on the classic chelsea boot for something a little different! :) xx
