Stomp, stomp, stomp.

I'm having such a shoe moment at the moment, especially for chunky footwear that I can stomp through puddles in. Let's face it, there are a lot of puddles to stomp through at the moment. I mean, half the footwear I'm obsessing about is still skyhigh - I'm short, okay? But I fell for these Bertie boots because they were chunky, sensible, waterproof AND heeled. YAY.

I got these a couple of weeks ago at the Bertie Blogger's Event - a dream for me, as I got to nose through their gorgeous shoe selection and pick a pair to take home (whilst gossiping with some mega babes of the blogging world, which is always my favourite part). I really love them, even though they're actually not all that ME. But they tap into my wistful 90s self, and I find myself wanting to team them with ripped tights and a babydoll dress. Ah, the 90s were great.

I failed to take hardly any pics at the event, but there's a whole bunch here! I'm in none of them, which is ace as I looked all sweaty and scruffy that night. HOT. (No, really, I was boiling)

Finally, I love the bowler hat, I do, but I never manage to wear it OUT. I don't know. I feel kind of silly in it, even though I like it. How does one get over this?

  1. Love those boots, great choice! I really want a bowler hat, but think I'd be like you, put it on, like it with my outfit, then take it off before I left the house!! I guess just gotta go for it?? And you don't look silly in it! xx

  2. I also have a bowler - a green one - and I'm perplexed by when to wear it too! I recall being told that it's rude to wear hats indoors, so unless I was going for a walk or shopping or something, I don't know when it's appropriate to wear it : )

  3. I have a few hats that I only feel brave enough to wear inside. Such a chicken! Haha. Love the chunky boots, they're so 90s.

  4. These boots are awesome, super stompy! I think because so few people wear hats they stand out more, maybe try wearing it as people start to wear berets/bobble hats?
