Winter Boots Wish List

Where did this cold weather come from? I know it's winter and everything but 2 weeks OK it wasn't as cold as this! Last weekend we had a bit of snow and I find myself basically ice skating my way home from work. After nearly falling over 1,638 times I decided enough was enough and it was time to look at some proper winter boots.

I tend to get the bus to and from work, so I really need something comfy and sturdy to see me through the winter months. At the moment I have been wearing fleece ankle boots and as great they are for keeping my feet warm they're next to useless in the rain and especially in the ice.

Thankfully there seem to be some good choices for wide fit ankle boots so when I get paid at the end of the month one of these pairs will be going straight in my basket.

I like these Brantano boots because the bottom of the boot looks nice and sturdy. They look as though they would be great in wet weather! The fact that they're under £40 makes them a bit of a bargain too! These aren't strictly wide fit, but with a style like these I tend to size up and they usually works out fine.

These from Simply Be look great. I've had shoes from Simply Be before and I have always been impressed with the fit and quality. They're a bit more of an investment but they look like they'd do more than winter which is great. They come in wide fit size E as well which is great news!

New Look always have a a great range of wide fit shoes and their boots are no exception. One of the things I like about New Look is that you can go in store and try them on. I know you can in Simply Be and other places but for me New Look is right next  to my work where as my nearest Simply Be is an hour away.

There are all quite similar in style - I like that they'll pretty much go with everything. I'd be able to wear these with jeans or leggings so they're perfect for both and leisure. 

What footwear do you like for the bad weather? Any recommendations?

These Boots Are Made For Walking - A Jilsen Review

A few weeks ago a lovely company called Jilsen contacted me about their boots. They offer a range of wide calf boots, to give another option to those with larger legs. I know that lots of women struggle to find boots that fit because of their large calves, so this sounded ideal to me!. 

The company kindly sent me a pair of boots to try for myself. I'll talk about the good points first. They shipped quickly and I had the boots within just a couple of days. They come well packaged in a long, heavy duty box so they weren't damaged while being sent. The colour and feel of the boots was magnificent and you can tell that the boots have been made with quality and comfort in mind.

The bad news was - they didn't fit! Hence, a lack of photos of me wearing the boots because I couldn't get them on. I choose the lovely Anna boots with a 52cm calf. This was the biggest calf size they did and I assumed they would fit, but they didn't :( I was really sad, because I loved the look of the boots and I'd loved to have been able to wear them! So make sure you check your measurements before you order - they offer boots in a variety of calf width fittings.

However, Jilsen do get my recommendationn simply because it is so fantastic to have another option when it comes to plus size footwear. The quality of the boots is fantastic and if they fitted me I know they would have been something remained in my wardrobe for a number of years. Boots like this are a real high-quality investment and Jilsen offer great options for this!
