Boot Camp

Last year I spent most of the winter alternating between Whooga boots and ballet pumps. Whooga boots are amazing and incredibly warm but they don't go with everything and ballet flats are just not all that warm. This year, there is no question about it, I need new boots. I am fairly choosy about which boots I need. They need to be comfy and practical as well as looking great with most of the outfits in my wardrobe. I have a great pair of wedge boots but can only wear them when I am not walking too far. I need boots for getting out and about in the camper van and walking children to school every day.

Here are some of my practical but stylish picks, all available from Spartoo:

Le Temps de Cerise - Susan - These boots definitely tick all the boxes in terms if practicality and versatility. They would probably also be great with dresses for the festivals that I am hoping to go to next summer. I also love the metal trim detail on them and zip which makes them quick and easy to put on.

Mosquitos Honey - the low wedge on these boots makes them ideal for walking in (plus giving me a little bit of extra height). The suede and texture makes them look really warm. They would look great with most winter skirt and leggings outfits.

Esprit - Mossa Bootie - I love the colour and motorbike style of these boots. They would be perfect for wearing with jeans for a casual everyday outfit.

I like the Biker style ones best. I do like the wedges but prefer flat boots. xx

The wedge boot you show is gorgeous. In my Canadian climate I really have to be careful what boots I choose as they must be both waterproof and able to keep you warm in up to -40degree temps. La Canadienne is one of the only brands that can fit that bill and look good, too, because as you can tell by the name, they understand the conditions they're dealing with! You've inspired me to do a post on warm winter boots, now! Thanks!

I think the Spartoo boots are my fave out of these three, good luck getting some new boots xx

I really like the first and last. I am hoping for a pair similar to the last, actually!

I also like flats or low heels because of the amount of walking I do.
