Winter Knits To Lust After And How To Care For Them

aLiving at the bottom of the world means we get some pretty chilly winters and wrapping up in a snuggly knit is one of my favourite ways to dress in these colder months. For me investing in some seriously luxurious but timeless pieces is high on my priority list, but I also like to grab some on-trend pieces that are a little easier on the wallet to experiment. Either way, wools are a tad tricky to wash and especially with those lux items you want to take the bestcare of them. I’ve teamed up with Persil to show you some of my winter picks and the best way to care for them.

What I Want To Adorn My Feet This Winter

Let's keep this short and sweet. These are the shoes I want to adorn my feet this winter, because...well, because they are hot! I'm a big shoe fan, I always say I would rather spend money on shoes over clothes, so it makes sense that shoes are at the top of my winter wish lists.

The Cailin from Mi Piaci $360

These boots are seriously the sexiest things you ever did see. The point is so perfect and the heel really makes the boot stand out. I know they are a plain black boot, but they are the perfect black boot! I also love that these babies are tailored through the ankle. I have big feet (size 10) so boots usually get bigger around the ankle/leg the bigger the size, making my slim ankles look much bigger than they are. I usually favour boots that cut off below the ankle for this reason but these are just so flattering.

Montauk Moccasin by La Tribe, $289.90

I love a good moccasin and these suede number are so comfy and easy to throw on with anything. La Tribe is a new kiwi brand and I LIVED in their slides over summer and it seems I will be living in these this winter.

Montauk Moccaisn Black AngleNakita from Tony Bianco $222.96

My friend sent me a link to these boots to get my opinion; she described them as sassy and that was the perfect description! I love the patent leather look and this ice grey is a really beautiful colour. I wear a lot of black and white in winter so a light boot is nice to lift a darker outfit and fits into my monochrome wardrobe perfectly.

Major Leather Sneaker from Mi Piaci $200

Every mum has to have a epic pair or two of sneakers to fit into their "mum wardrobe" and I fell in love with these the moment I saw them. They are the perfect dusty pink, have snake sin detailing and gold hardware! Im a sucker for gold hardware. The kicker, that zip actually works. So no tying up shoe laces, just slip on and off! I'm pretty lazy so anything that makes life easier for me is a win!

The Fur Slide, Fenty by Rihanna. Available at Good As Gold, Loaded and Puma $120

Rihanna is doing some really cool things with Puma! These slides have converted me, I haven't really bought into the sport slide trend yet but these have done it. Well played Rihanna! Furry, soft, comfy goodness, get on my feet now please. Along with the black they come in white and pink.

Metal Trim Block Boot from Glassons $79.99

I love the silver trim detailing on the block heel of these boots. Simple but not boring! Sometimes you just need something classic with a twist and this pair is just that.

Fleming Boot from Miss Wilson $329

Easy to throw on with any outfit,  with just the right amount of gold detailing to make them a little bit special. I'm a sucker for gold chains and the gold star adds a nice femminine touch to the more masculine shape of the boot.

409 Flemming Boot Tobacco NubuckAlly Over The Knee Boot from Seed $399.90

I love a thigh high boot, warm and can really make an outfit pop. These are actually practical to wear during the day as the heel isn't too high, comfort is very high on my priority list with day time foot wear!

Keeping Those Tootsies Cosy

So let's face it, winter is on its way. I'm such a summer girl and I'm sad that those long dreamy summer days are gone...but I do get excited over the prospect of filling up the boys wardrobe with winter goodies! That's one the best things about growing children, new wardrobes I get to fill each season (kidding, kind of). A burden on the wallet, but oh so much fun to do. Can you tell I'm a bit of a shop-a-hollic? So the first thing that was on the agenda was keeping The Nuggets toes warm with some Ugg boots. I have pulled together some of my favourite options available below, both high and low price range so there is something for everyone!
