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…
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?!
