Bloomin’ crazy blustery weather calls for layers, sturdy pieces to withstand the cold, and more layers, and I for one can get on-board with all the basic staples layered up until I look like Joey protecting himself from the girl who punches him, and start getting the porridge sweats – TMI?
Among the layers, I like to make sure I don’t sink into the conscious collective thought of wearing lots of black and dark colours – in fact, I find it impossible to wear all black except for parties or when a roll-neck is involved – so turning to navy, blue and brown helps me inject some life into those murky days without compensating for wearable style.
Speaking of wearable style, I have discovered a fantastic pair of new season boots that keep your toes warm (yay!) and actually look decent (double yay!). Classic double buckles, a thick sole so you don’t get painful feet, stylish faux fur trim with a lined inside for roasty toasty walking, and made from materials built to last – I bet you wouldn’t believe they’re from Blacks.
What was once a store myself and others thought of as ‘only for walkers’ is now seriously upping the game for stylish, well designed footwear and outerwear to rival the likes of the high-street and popular retailers. The Merrell Decora Chant boots* are ones that tick all the boxes for me, and I love how easy they are to rock with so many outfits without looking too sporty or heavy-duty for walking or treks, and are the perfect height on your leg to give the illusion of longer limbs – something I’m in much need of!
As well as jumping for joy over these boots, how gorgeous is this printed scarf and Mulberry dupe?! I love the pops of colour they give the navy and brown, and an easy way to make a statement with a classic look (but more on those another day….)
There’s snow stopping me now with the perfect new season boot, and I’m happy to finally have found a shade of Black(s) that I can get down with daily; bring on the boots!
Have you shopped from Blacks before? What’s your perfect style of winter boot? How are you dealing with the crazy winter weather?!
Lots of Love,
