ankle-boots-shopbop.pngIt seems a little strange to be talking ankle boots in the middle of summer, but we're all wearing them today, so why the heck not? Especially when they're as irresistibly beautiful as these Dita platform booties by Rebecca Taylor, a new-in style at Shopbop. Everything about these boots just makes us want to touch them - from the butter-soft suede of the uppers to the snake-embossed metallic heel and carefully sculpted wooden platform.

At £234, these are certainly a bit of an investment purchase but the quality of the materials is immediately apparent when you view the shoes close up. We can only imagine what they'd feel like on our feet. They have a real playful cuteness to them, thanks in part to the tassel, which is typical of Kiwi designer Rebecca Taylor's whimsical style.

These are the sort of boots you could wear with your most casual gear and give it an injection of chic. Who doesn't want to have that waiting in the wardrobe?
