Hot Picks: These Boots Are Made For Walking

hotboots1 Hot Picks: These Boots Are Made For Walking %tag

I am a boot hoarder, I think when it comes to footwear I fall head over heels for boots more than any other style, so I thought it only right to share my love with everyone. I have put together my top eight boots that I am lusting over at the moment, quite a mixture of funky, practical and my favourites being super comfie!!

1. Mou Eskimo suede boots, £280, Net-a-Porter

I have recently been introduced to this amazing brand, full blog post to come soon I promise, and these anthracite suede boots will keep your warm this winter with their sheepskin lining. I also love the contrasting stitching. The most expensive of my picks but definitely worth the investment.

2. EMU Australia Illura boots, £250, EMU Australia

I have been an EMU Australia convert for many years now, what I love about this mid-calf style other than the gorgeous mushroom colour has to be the belt and sheepskin detailing, which allows the style to be worn up or folded down. As well as it being stylish, unlike other sheepskin boots EMU are water-resistant.

3. Dr Martens Aries boots, £200, Dr Marten

A re-working of the 1460 classic in a beautiful grey suede leather boot that is lined with wool shearling. I know, you get the edgy vibe of wearing Dr Martens, while still staying toasty warm. LOVE!!

4. Cheryl Cole for StylistPick T.L.C boots, £79.90, StylistPick

Just launched this week Chezza’s debut footwear collection is something special and one of my favourites has to be these slouchy ankle boots with faux sheepskin lining and a duffle toggle.

5. Red or Dead Celeste boots, £130, Schuh

One of my favourite features is Shop Her Style, so I thought only fitting to include a boot that has recently been picked up by a celebrity and these boots were bought by Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson. These work as both practical come on who doesn’t need a pair of black knee-high boots, and also fashionable with its vintage detailing of the stacked heel and leather tassels.

6. Medwinds Niza Knee Highs, £110, Medwinds

Classic knee highs never go out of fashion and these are beauties, I especially love the contrasting stacked heel and the price – such great value.

7. Aldo Barrarito, £200, Aldo

Want a designer boot at a more affordable price? Well the Christian Cota for Aldo collection is edgy and fashionable. My favourite has to be these knee-high leather boots, which do double duty as a trendy urban boots. As well as having a soft and cosy shearling lining – they also have a removable ankle cover – but that is the best bit for me. They also come in black but I just loved the brown.

8. Senso Jay Glitter Boot, £145, Doll Boutique

I couldn’t do a my top boots without including a glittery number or without one of my favourite Australian brands. I think these are perfect for the festive season, while still being comfortable as they only have a mid heel – also the harness feature I think allows these to be worn during the day as well.

Which one is your favourite?

Introducing: Medwinds Mediterranean Style

Last week I was introduced to Spanish brand Medwinds debut spring/summer 2011 collection at Cube PR’s showroom and I instantly feel in love with its relaxed Mediterranean charm. Launched in Barcelona earlier this year the online brand offers high quality clothing and accessories for both women and men with competitive prices, and free shipping and returns.

I don’t like to compare brands, but when they are new I think it is needed to get them noticed, so I would say that Medwinds is kind of a mix between GAP and H&M with its gorgeous selection of plain basics, from t-shirts, dresses, blouses and shorts. Perfect additions to any wardrobe, from casual weekend pieces to stylish work options.

What I was most surprised about were the details, I loved the cute collars on the blouses, the pleating on tops and dresses, and most of all the soft pastel shades. Think of Medwinds as an affordable holiday collection, it has everything you need to enjoy the summer, complete with swimwear.

I think the items that gained the most attention had to be the footwear and handbag collections, and I have to admit I was one of them, but really I shouldn’t have been surprised as the brand is from the people behind footwear Camper.

They offer a great selection of flats, wedges, work shoes, evening heels and my favourite pair has to be these gorgeous peep-toe tan wooden wedges.

I always love it how bloggers are generally drawn to the same item at events like this, at Tabio it was a pair of tights, and at Medwinds it was this exquisite Marsella Tote bag, with its soft tan leather and enough room to carry everything a fashionista would need. It definitely made it to my wish-list!!

Even the men’s collection is divine, with loose-fitting t-shirts, shorts, swimwear and stylish bowling ball shoes.

As well as the clothes and shoes it was an evening of great company, it is always nice catching up with the Cube PR gang, but I also got to see the lovely Alex Loves in her beautiful Erdem dress and Lois aka Bunni Punch working the Medwinds bag that I want.
