My Style: Punting In Cambridge In My Mou Boots

This weekend I did tourist things as my good pals Mat and Becky came to stay with my cutie of a Godson Sebbie, so for the first time in five years of living just outside Cambridge I finally went punting. Admittedly it did take some convincing, but I am so glad I did it as it was so much fun, and it was lovely to see Cambridge from the river, plus the sunny weather was the perfect backdrop.

Unlike last week when it was scorching yesterday in Cambridge was the right amount of sun and heat, cold enough for me to still wear my new tall Eskimo Mou Boots, but still warm enough to not have to wear a coat. I am much more of a layering autumn/winter doll, I love wearing sheepskin-lined boots, gloves, and wrapping up in a funky scarf, but I do prefer not to have to hide my look behind a winter coat, so yesterday was perfection.

As it was a Sunday and a day of fun with friends I went for something comfortable, and generally that means layering my simple black H&M skirt over my leggings for warmth, and teaming with a plain black tee, and then an added pop of colour with my cardigan and scarf, and generally that means some hue of pink, yesterday’s shade was light but sweet, which sat perfectly against the bright pink from my Ice-Watch.

As you already know I have a lot of sheepskin-lined boots of various colours, heights and styles, and these beauties are my ninth pair, and my first black and my first Mou boots. What I love about them has to be the crochet wool seams, it just makes them a little bit different, and a little bit smarter than the standard Ugg boot. I can imagine getting a lot of use out of these boots, as well as working with a skirt or jumper dress they also go perfectly over my skinny jeans, and with their double-face sheepskin I can’t wait to test out later this week if the reported snow comes!!!

Fashion: New Boots Always Make Me Smile

I love it when a surprise parcel is delivered, especially when it is knee-high boots sized, and I was thrilled to see Mou Boots inside.

These beauties will get a proper style post outing soon, probably when the weather changes back to the normally cold March, but I just couldn’t resist sharing.

Hot Picks: These Boots Are Made For Walking

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?
