Hey there ladies,
How’s your Saturday night and your Halloween going? The height of my face painting was a face mask I threw on earlier…I look no better by the way and I’ll be drinking the toxins back in when I finish this post and pour a glass of wine for myself! I was trans-fixed earlier to Tess Daly’s hair on Strictly Come Dancing and now I’m loving Cheryl’s eye make-up on X Factor…oh lord it’s Winter isn’t it? When these programmes start it always means we’re on the countdown to Christmas…and it means my life is pathetic sitting here watching them! Haha! Well I won’t be here next Saturday night as I’m out on the town at The Galway Chamber of Commerce Gala Ball and I’m super excited about that as the company I work for is up for an award. The following Saturday night I won’t be here either but I will keep you updated on that adventure too 😉
So getting back to the topic in question…I had planned to write a blog post about Winter boots and was waiting ’til I found the perfect pair! Every year I search for a boot to get me through the chilly weather and I have a list of criteria they must adhere to – they must be comfy enough to walk long distance in (not just ‘car to bar’ as I need them to be my ‘day boots’), a heel is a must being 5 foot nothing, they must be wide enough that I can stuff my skinny jeans in, but not too wide that they will look like wellies when I wear a skirt/dress!! Well now there’s all that…and I gotta find them in a size 3…not too difficult eh?
With everything taken into consideration, I trawled the streets and the internet and finally found these in River Island and I love them! They’re the perfect height for me and they have a little fringed tassel which is bang on trend this Winter too.
As for road-testing them, don’t get me started. If you noticed on Snapchat/Facebook I was in Dublin last weekend and we stayed in The Castleknock Hotel. After my sight-seeing venture with the in-laws and my 2 hour run around the shops I decided to get the bus out to the hotel by myself while everyone else was gulping pints in The Guinness Storehouse! I asked the bus driver to let me know which stop was closest to the hotel and by God if I got hold of him now…well, there are no words! He told me to get off at a stop that was, no joke, 4km from the hotel. It was getting dark as the clocks had just gone back, a mouse popped out of the ditch and scared the bejesus outta me and I ended up on some random ‘country road’ in Castleknock and you ask me did I walk that distance in these boots? No is the answer, I RAN!!!
So yes, these boots are made for walking and running too if you fancy it!!
I’m not surprised the black ones are sold out on the River Island website but don’t fret I found them for you here on asos a slight bit more expensive €58 (I paid €50)
They’re also available in a light brown colour pictured below here in River Island – €50.
Enjoy the rest of your Saturday night ladies.
