Back to school…but not as we know it

Back to school…but not as we know it

September is my favourite month. I love the change in weather and the feeling of a fresh start and new beginnings. I remember the excitement of going back to school in September: a new winter coat, school bag, shoes, and stationery - pure joy. As a grown-up (well, kind of!) I usually spend early September visiting stores, attending fashion shows, hosting ‘Maggie Loves’ events with my favourite brands and favourite people. COVID 19 has impacted on so much of what I do but it hasn’t taken away my optimism my for the new season, so bring it on.

You may be someone returning to the office and in need of a fabulous new handbag or shoes (remember those!); you may be starting to get invites for lunch or dinner dates; or you may be over the ‘lounge-wear situation’ and want to indulge in ‘dressing up’ once again. Whatever the reason I am dedicating September Style Posts to inspiring you with key pieces that I hope bring you that ‘fresh start’ feeling we all deserve.

So, let’s kick off (literally) with the perfect transitional addition to your wardrobe – the ankle boot. Whether you’re a fan of the chunky walking boot, the simple Chelsea boot or prefer a heeled version – there is a style out there for you. The beauty of a great pair of ankle boots is their versatility. Wear with dresses, skirts (long or short), jeans, trousers, or culottes – you name it – they work. Here is a selection of my favourites, along with inspirational ways to wear them. Enjoy!

I hope this inspires you to either ‘dust off’ your favourite ankle boots and get them ready for a new season ­or, treat yourself to a beautiful new pair that will make you feel fabulous – because you are.

Have a great week-end and feel free to share this post.
