Well hi there. Today's post is a little something different.. that's right, we're inside. Normally the outfits you see on here are me when I'm out and about and - right now, anyway, thank you Scottish 'Spring' - wearing 500 layers. So for today's post I thought I'd do something a little cosier. Now, up until last November, I'd never owned a pair of UGG boots. To some people this'll be like, 'Jesus H. CHRIST how could you!?' and to some people it'll be like, 'yeah, no, I've never actually owned a pair. No biggie'... they seem to be real crowd dividers. I remember in school when they became a massive deal and your feet were very, very cool if some UGG boots adorned them. At this point, however, I was too busy begging my Mum to let me get my first pair of heeled school shoes,'just an inch or two high, no one will even notice', and missed the boat. Sad, very sad. So, yeah, fast forward to the end of last year when my first pair of ankle height UGG boots popped into my life. I was never really sure how I felt about them so it was almost a begrudging love to begin with. Kind of like the way most people feel about Danny Dyer. But love it was, and it quickly blossomed into something less begrudging and something more beautiful. They are beyond comfy; in fact, comfy doesn't even begin to cover it. It's like walking on a cloud. As you know I have wide hobbit feet that make shoe-wearing generally a very uncomfortable task so these were a real welcome addition to my feet. Possibly even more importantly, however, is how warm they are. All fuzzy and cushioned and basically a permanent, portable duvet for your little tootsies. And thus blossomed a beautiful Winter of my finally having warm feet on late night dog walks. These red babies are the most recent pair I've added to my collection, and I cannot friggin 'wait for summer days to come in so I can wear them with little denim shorts and run through fields and generally just love life. I think it's the beautiful little bit of Pocahontas-esque detailing on the back of them; it's playing funny games with my head and making me long for warmer weather. For now I've been wearing them mainly with denims on comfy days, as well as around the house during the day. A pair of very sassy slippers if you like. Next I'm eyeing up this pair from the Liberty x UGG boots collection for festivals.. Oh how I love a bit of paisley print.

So yeah, there we go! I hoped you liked this post, it was fun shooting something a little different in my natural habitat ie on the couch with a cup of tea in hand.
