Walkies Time *AD GIFTED

I was sent a free coat and pair of boots by a PR company to review.

I find the best way to blow away the cobwebs after the holidays is a nice brisk walk, and to be honest I don't need much of an excuse to get out and about with the pups. And this time of year is when resolutions like getting fitter and being outside more are made.

One of the things I want to work towards is being more confident in myself, and part of that will be posting pictures of myself on the blog (shock, horror, ahhh) so here we go...

For a walk, especially in winter, you need to dress sensibly and wrap up warm. I pretty much always have a thermal base layer as I can really feel the cold, and you'll likely find me wearing tights under my jeans too.

Petite Hooded Fit and Flare navy Trench Coat, JD Williams

When I'm thinking about Winter Coats and Jackets I'm mostly thinking about layering possibilities - the more I can layer the better - and how suitable it is for the weather. Is it shower proof? Is there a hood? The last thing I want to think about when I'm wrangling energetic puppies is trying to juggle an umbrella with the poo bags.

This one from JD Williams is petite, with a fit and flare shape, and I don't think I've ever owned a more gorgeous and well fitting coat. It hangs perfectly, there's enough space for my bust, I can nip the waist in with the belt. And there is a hood. And there are pockets. And it's so gorgeous and versatile that I've worn it almost every day since Christmas.

Florence Basic leopard print Chelsea Boot from JD Williams

When I was browsing for a new pair of Women's Boots on JD Williams I fell in love with these leopard print Chelsea Boots. It's only in the past year that I've started wearing ankle boots, as I was nervous about them making me look shorter, but after trying some I got over that quickly! Especially when I had animal prints dangled in front of me.

I love how these boots are super comfortable, but also really stylish. They're perfect for work, drinks, and general day-to-day, and they're my new favourites. Sorry Doc Martens.

* I was gifted boots and a coat for review purposes, all thoughts are my own.

  3. That coat is SO lovely, and I love ankle boots too. I barely ever wear any other shoes to be honest,the only exception is in summer I'll occasionally wear sandals. The ones you're wearing in the photos look fab! Also, your dogs are so gorgeous 😍
