Even though I love high heels and complex designs, sometimes shoes have to be simple, flat and wearable in order to fit one’s needs of everyday life. Over the years, I have come to love and appreciate neutral-colored ankle boots. They are easy to combine, comfortable and look good with virtually anything in your closet. You might also already know about my passion for anything Alexander McQueen and these chain-embellished booties from the lower-priced McQ Alexander McQueen line unite everything I love in a good ankle boot. They are flat (= comfortable) yet have a small heel (= added height) and the gold chain is a nice little detail which gives these booties a more individualistic, unique look. If only I could afford these…
