Years ago people wouldn't be caught dead in ankle boots that weren't covered by flarey bottomed pants.
Roll around 2013 and you aren't a fashionista if you don't have at least one pair of ankle boots to wear with all the skinny jeans, dresses, skirts or short shorts in your wardrobe. Summer or winter, ankle boots are everywhere at the moment.
There is an ankle boot to suit any taste or budget, as shown below with Luxe to Less.
Over on Fox in Flats, Andrea gives some great tips on how to wear ankle boots - http://www.foxinflats.com.au/2011/05/ankle-boots-wi/. Seriously, she is amazing.
I have three pairs of ankle boots. All purchased a long time ago. I would love to purchase the I Love Billy boots above, alas my strict budget doesn't allow it.
