A 5'3 Perspective

Never Thought I’d Rock Ankle Boots


For as long as I can remember, I’ve always believed that ankle boots weren’t for me. I have short legs and the last thing I need is a shoe to break them up. Well, maybe I’ve changed my mind. I couldn’t take my eyes off these Hibou ankle boots when I walked into Little Burgundy last weekend. What do you think, was it a good call to go against my instinct and jump on the bootie bandwagon?

Fun Fact: The location of these photos is where Neil and I had out first date [AWWW]! He’s the best.

Don’t forget to check out “Ask A Beauty Blogger” to submit a question for this week – so far I only have one.

Have a lovely day!

  1. I, too, have always shied away from ankle boots (or even an ankle strap across the foot) because I am only 5’2″ but in recent years, I have relaxed that hard & fast rule – I don’t think the line of your leg is broken up when you are wearing dark tights as in these photos 🙂

  2. I just bought my first pair of ankle boots from Spring a week ago, and I love them! I think they look great on you 🙂

  3. These ankle boots are so cute – you look so good in them!!
