Here's a secret: I've actually been out of the country for the past two weeks, first taking a holiday with my son in Positano (my husband was there leading a yoga retreat) and then working from "home" in Rome — with home being an airbnb flat in the Travestere neighborhood. As you might imagine, the people-watching has been GUHMAZING and of course half the time I'm looking down at all the Italians' shoes. And what am I seeing non-stop? Ankle boots. The Italians are really REALLY into ankle boots.
Now, I'm not sure how many of you would ever wear ankle boots on your wedding days, but I'm inspired to collect a few of my favorites here for you. Blame the Italians for this perhaps only slightly-wedding-related shoe post, although I suppose given that it's been steampunk week, this is somewhat on-theme. (Oh, and lovers of flats, rejoice: lots of options for you in here.)
