I was recently invited to the Hottershoes store in Winchester to find out more about the brand itself and see the new collection up close. From my initial view of the website and familiarising myself with what they have for consumers, my views changed… for the better.
I thought it was a brand for specifically the elderly… I said it.
Some people may see some of the collection and think the same but when you see the range and how they have progressed throughout the years you will see they attract and appeal to a wider audience including the younger generation.
It was lovely to meet Mel and Jenni from the PR team who did really well presenting the history behind the brand and how far it has come since 1959. Being light weight, having room to wiggle your toes, fitting comfortably and having sufficient padding are properties most shoes should have.
This informative evening of course was enjoyed by all the bloggers who attended especially with the canapes and drinks provided. It was super exciting to know that one of their recent stores opened in Leeds… whoop!
I say this over and over again but Autumn is literally my season! The colours the layers and now a new favourite… tall boots! As a style blogger I love to challenge myself to make an outfit work based around one key piece. So when I saw this pair of Belle Biker boots in the shop, I instantly created a look in my head. This had to be one of my favorites from the latest collection. Whether this is the exact look I had in mind… I don’t know but I hope you like.
The Belle biker boots are designed for comfort as well as it’s edgy buckle detailing around the top and bottom which can be adjusted around the calf. I find them ever so flattering as they can be worn not only with jeans but dresses too! The texture is ‘waxed nubuck’ which feels so nice and just when you think that you won’t be able to maintain it… hottershoes sell the oil conditioner too! The durable build of the pair are definitely worth the £125* price tag. Look out for my discount code below if you fancy a sneaky purchase! Perfect Christmas gift ideas!
This outfit is one of my favourite simple looks at the moment and I love it even more wearing these practical boots. When I say practical, I mean they are so comfy you can ‘practically’ wear them all day long. I had some other favourites out of the new A/W 15 collection which included the gorgeous minimal heeled vanity boots! When I tried them on in the store, everyone loved them!
Southampton Common is thee place to have a photoshoot amongst the warm colours or autumn this time of year. A lovely place to roam and get lost in too! Throw back to 2013 where I wore the same dress here! I enjoy reading posts that show outfits being worn on different occasions to really compare how style evolves over time. Mine has changed so much but I always make it my own. The hair really did change.
This week I have felt so proud of myself for making certain changes in my life and changing my perspective on situations. Confidence is forever building within me, yes some days can be harder than others but not anything I cannot get through. Faith has a huge part to play in this. Also working in a hospital makes me forever grateful for life in general. I encourage anyone reading this to think positive- always!!
