marc-by-marc-jacobs-boots.jpgBy the end of this week, it will be October. Can you believe it? Neither can we, and it's distressing to note how quickly the year seems to be flying by. But one consolation can be found in the form of lovely autumn boots, surely one of the happiest footwear purchases of the year!

Marc by Marc Jacobs is a good go-to brand if you're looking for sturdy footwear with a twist, and that's certainly what we're hoping to equip our wardrobes with this autumn. Check out his conker-shiny lace-up leather boots for a taste of things to come: they are the perfect colour scheme for the A/W season, and the metal panelling adds a rugged edge.
