A/W footwear with Matalan

Autumn has arrived, the last few weeks has seen the temperature suddenly dip and we’ve been digging out the coats and boots again from the depths of the cupboards. I was recently contacted by Matalan to see if I would like to pick out a pair of their A/W boots for me and Maisy, it was perfect timing as I was on the hunt for some tan chelsea boots for myself at the time. These these brown chelsea boots just happened to be the first pair I spotted and were exactly what I was looking for.  They are so easy to wear…
