For me it is always "Will they go with multiple outfits?"
Followed closely by "Are they comfy to wear regularly?"
Granted some shoes don't apply to the second question and are purely there for vanity reasons, but when i invest in shoes, particularly boots, I know they have to answer yes to both of those questions.
So when Cloggs got in touch to find out if i would like to choose from the wide selection i went straight to looking at which pair where going to answer both those questions for me in the affirmative.
It was a LONG evening of deliberating ... shoe shopping is hard when there's just so many good shoes! All my favourites on the style and comfort front, like Joules and Barbour for practical wear, Uggs & Sorrell for ultimate warm toastie feet and Ash and Hudson for cool stylish boots... what's a girl to do ay?
I was spoilt for choice.
So seeing as i already have some tan and some black boots i went for the wild card.. These Hudson Lizard Boots.
And i freakin' love them.
Double zip fronted, with the most amazing lizard print. These are some seriously cool boots.
And even though they may be the wild card i'm thinking that they will still be versatile and plenty re-mixable.
Here's two outfits i've worn this week with them; one casual, one smart(er).
First up was the casual;
Jeans & Stripe top & Camel coat: F&F
Bag: River Island
Khaki shirt: New Look
Next up was a smarter option
Dress: & Other Stories
Biker: New look
Clutch: (old.. i forget)
I actually have a HUGE crush on these Ugg boots also, (have a look... not your typical Uggs i promise you!) They look divine.. and again, how wearable and remixable!
I have to say, i am a huge boots girl and come summer i will miss them (although British summers sometimes still require boots).
So there we have it, one pair of boots two ways.. and many many more to come i am sure!!
