So I dream of Pucci ever since watching the live streaming of their recent collection. I was particularly taken with the lace up tan boots that were paired with flowing, colourful dresses on the catwalk. Tan isn’t a colour I would usually choose for boots so I searched for a pair of black lace up boots that might take as their inspiration the ‘Pucci girl’ but be a practical solution for Psychologist-at-work moi.
I was very close to purchasing the Reiss Lawson boots below but over the knee always feels a bit too glam for therapy. In the end I settled on these knee high lace ups from Dune – the “Tavern” boot. I have to admit these are the very first pair of knee high boots I own, but they are already proving a wardrobe favourite this Autumn!
