Monkeychild and I got up early today for our first boot sale of the year...
...you can see that she's raring to go..or perhaps not!
Anyway, by now you'll probably have guessed that the above boots were the best buy of the day. I love boots and these two are smashers. The green boots are suede with leather and sheepskin trims; they've even got a lovely lacing detail at the back, Yet, one of the best things about them apart from how great they look is the Utility CC41 label inside each boot:
