New Clarks Winter Boots For Me And The Four-Year-Old

The warm September we’ve had has been just lovely. We spent a day last week on the beach in Essex, sitting on deckchairs and paddling in the sea. In late September! I’ve loved getting a bit more wear out of my Birkenstocks but the one down side (and it’s a serious one I’m sure you’ll agree) to a mild autumn is this:

I want a chance to wear my new boots.

After deliberating for ages over whether to buy biker boots or Chelsea boots, I took the advice of the very stylish Carissa from Little Likely Lads and went for Chelsea boots. She reckons they’ll go with more outfits and I’ll still be wearing them in a few years time, unlike biker boots. Clarks very kindly sent me a pair and they’re currently sitting in the corner of my bedroom, staring at me, just waiting to be worn. They’re a classic black, leather boot and will keep out the rain, while being smart enough for the office and great for weekend family fun too.

So while I can’t yet wear them, I can plan what I’ll wear them with…

Zara bag, £29.99 //Uniqlo Ultra Stretch Jeans £34.90 // H&M Sweatshirt, £24.99

Not one to be left out, the four-year-old has some gorgeous new Clarks winter boots of her own. These warm caramel coloured boots have a furry trim and a practical leather toe area with a super cute bunny face.

Here’s how she will be wearing them (when it’s cold enough)…

Have you bought new boots for the autumn? Is it just me who gets excited about wearing them?!

    Love BOTH! I’ve got Biker boots from last year but am currently researching my next boot purchase. Spent 2 hours picking out a new pair of trainers for my birthday prezzie from NLM so now to look at boots…

    Oooh these are gorgeous and look super comfy too and how amazing is that green Zara bag?!!
    If I had a little girl I would so buy those bunny boots, they are adorable. I bet she loves them and can’t wait for a cooler autumn too x

      The Zara bag is fab, isn’t it? I so don’t need a new bag but…

    OMG!! Those bunny boots are so adorable!! Wish I had a pair and wish it was cold enough over here to wear boots without sweating buckets :p

    Love both of these Alison. When we were choosing boots I looked at those ones for E but then they decided they wanted matching ones -because apparently they are into that now! x

    Super cute! i totally want to go and buy some new autumn boots now *quickly shoves other boots to the back of the wardrobe* as I totally have nothing to wear on my feet! Great choice and love the styling. x

    Lovely picks including the outfits, you two are going to rock your new boots when the colder weather arrives! xx

    love these boots! I just treated myself to some new boots ready for winter!

  9. September 30, 2014 / 9:42 am

    love them and your right they will be so versatile. I got a pair quite similar in the January sales by Kurt Geiger but actually they feel apart in a few months so I wish I’d stuck to a reliable brand like Clarks that you know are well made! xx

    really nice boots! i’ve worn boots recently, and even a couple times in the summer. the key is thin socks and bare legs!

    Oh wow such great choices – I seriously love the ones you picked – perfect for Autumn and a real fashion staple – beautiful

    I love the Little Bird cardigan, they always have the cutest clothes. It is definitely new boots season, I really need to get myself a pair! x

    You are right – those boots! Love. While we are on the subject – Little Bird really needs to make adult sizes.

    Love your boots! Thinking its time to ditch my ballet pumps now and invest in some boots too… May pop my head into Clarks! Miss M already has her boots – and will be rocking them with this same Little Bird outfit!
