These boots are made for walkin'...

By Gem - 15:01:00

I took a few days off last week to look after my lovely Labrador Sookie and spend some time with my boyfriend while my mum was on holiday. I don't get to spend as much time with her as I would like because I work full time and I'm away a lot on weekends so I really enjoyed my time with her even though she was pining after my mum and being very needy. I suppose it must be difficult for a dog when their owner goes away so I tried my best to lavish her with attention and took her for a walk in my favourite spot close to my house.


Martyn and I tried to tire Sookie out as much as possible with a long walk and  by playing plenty of catch. She doesn't really understand the concept of catch and wants you to chase her for the ball initially but soon drops the ball when she realises that I wont be running after her.


I wrapped up warm (have you noticed the sudden drop in temperature?) and tried out my new boots from Fashion World. This is about as outdoors as I get, I have no practical clothing at all which isn't very good for a dog owner.


Dress: AX Paris
Boots: c/o Fashion World
Coat: Barbour

These boots are going to be very handy this winter. They can be worn as both short boots and knee high boots. You just have to zip on the knee high part over the short boots and tie the buckle up, such a simple idea but very clever. I'm wearing them short here but I love them higher with a pair of knee high socks for evening walks to keep out the winter chill.



Look at my baby, isn't she adorable?!

  1. Ooh. zippy boots? That's a good idea - I remember having a pair of zip-leg dungarees, which I loved. Wish I could find those, actually.

  2. Ah I love the idea you can go long or short depending on your mood! Isn't Sookie such a pretty lady?!

    1. so handy for winter I think and makes them more versatile xx

  3. these boots look really comfy, and very clever that they're basically 2 boots in one! And Sookie is a very cute dog <3 xx

  4. She's such a cutie. And I love convertible boots.

  5. What a fab idea - 2 in 1 boots! Sometimes in the autumn I put my long boots on as it's chilly in the morning, but by the afternoon it's a little bit warmer and I'm regretting the long boots so this is great!

  9. Love your outfit

  10. YAY MORE SOOKIE PICTURES! I'm sure she loved having you around just as much as your Mum! Rufus gets all homesick too, he doesn't eat when Mum's not there, which is so bizarre for a lab. Hope you had a lovely week though mate <3 Claire @ Jazzpad
