    You men usually be forgotten about when it comes to these blogs, so hold tight as this one is for you! Keeping with the theme of the snowy, wet weather that doesn’t seem to be shifting, I have rummaged through our shelves and pulled out our water resistant and waterproof shoes. Not only are these great for this time of year, they will carry you right through spring/summer and autumn too if you are a walking fan – whether it be hill walking, forest walking or simply taking the dogs up the street.

  • Navy is the new black.

    Navy is the new black.

    When I'm searching for something to wear, black always seems to be an easy choice to fall back on. Let's face it girls black can be a bit dull! Don't get me wrong. It's a good choice when you want a sleeker silhouette. I don't know about you, but I always want that! However, it's not always the best choice if you want to stand out from the crowd, without going overboard with colour.

    That's why NAVY is the colour for me. Navy is a neutral tone. That's why it goes with everything! It even goes with black. Yes that's right. Navy and black DO go together! Forget what your mum told you. Black actually brings out the rich colour of navy.

    Forget the little black dress for a night out. Go for a little navy number! Team a little navy dress with your favourite chunky necklace and some sexy shoe boots to add a bit of edginess to your look. Kate Appleby "Sandown" shoe boots are my current fave.

    A navy shoe boot can take you anywhere. I wear mine day and night. They're easily teamed with a skirt or skinnies. With a slimline high heel and platform sole, you can be comfortable and stylish at the same time.

    Now that winter is well and truly here it's time to think boots! A good quality boot is a staple for every woman's wardrobe. If you only buy one pair of boots this season, you want one that goes with pretty much everything! Tan goes with a lot, but is more casual. Black goes with a lot and is dressy. However black can be a bit too harsh for some casual looks. A navy boot can solve the problem! Navy is a rich colour yet still soft. You can team a navy boot with a casual outfit with ease. However, navy is an easy option for a smarter look.

    This season I've fallen in love with the "Arizona" boot from Cara London. It comes in brown or navy. Guess what? Yeah I got the navy. I want a boot I can get a lot of wear out of. The Arizona is that boot for me. I wear it with a chunky jumper and skinnies jeans for a cosy, casual day look. But I can throw them on with a mini skirt and button down shirt and some bling.

    I find navy always looks a bit richer and, dare I say, more high end than black. When you are looking for a shoe or boot you can get various materials and textures to suit. I find navy suede and navy patents always look richer and more luxurious than other colours.

    So ladies, next time you're out shopping for a shoe or boot to go with an outfit, why not try navy. Trust me, it will make your outfit pop!
