When you buy a new pair of shoes, what is your thought process?
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
I opted for one of my favourite casual combo’s right now, ripped jeans and layers. Starting with the stripe top, then on with the khaki shirt and finished off with the camel coat. Casual and comfy.. my favourite kind of style. The wonderful thing about these boots is the print is subtle, lizard print, like leopard print can act just like a neutral, making them super easy to wear.
Next up was a smarter option
Dress: & Other Stories
Biker: New look
Clutch: (old.. i forget)
I knew these boots would look awesome with black skinny jeans, and i know that will be in their not so distant future, but i wanted to see if these boots would work for a smarter outfit, a dress in this case. I actually loved them paired with the dress. With a short black dress like this, i love to reign it in a bit and pair it down slightly with flat boots, making the outfit more accessible and much more wearable than teetering in high heels all day. I added the biker, one of my favourite statement necklace and a simple clutch and i was comfy but smart!
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!!
Do you have a pair of shoes/ boots that work hard for you with your wardrobe?
