A Sea-Side Walk

I just got these boots from Blowfish and they're super amazing. The boots are perfect for exploring with their flat soles and snug fit; I had a lot of fun climbing all over the rocks down by the shore in them (much more secure than my usual ballet flats). I really enjoy all the snazzy details: the lace-ups (they also have a side zipper) and shearling trim. I haven't done a lot of "field testing" with these boots but from all appearances thus far at the beach they kept my legs warm, my feet dry, and gripped nicely on the rocks.

I was talking to a friend the other day about how I feel like a vampire. After a year of overcast skies in Washington, the bright sun of Virginia feels very intense. Even as the temperatures cool, the sun beats down bright and rather unforgivingly. Still, while I might feel a little "day blind" I still drag myself outside to the beach to squint at distant ships passing by.the clothes horse, blowfish shoes, boots, shearling, laceup, fashion, style, retro, blue, vintage, retrothe clothes horse, blowfish shoes, boots, shearling, laceup, fashion, style, retro, blue, vintage, retrothe clothes horse, blowfish shoes, boots, shearling, laceup, fashion, style, retro, blue, vintage, retrothe clothes horse, blowfish shoes, boots, shearling, laceup, fashion, style, retro, blue, vintage, retrothe clothes horse, blowfish shoes, boots, shearling, laceup, fashion, style, retro, blue, vintage, retrothe clothes horse, blowfish shoes, boots, shearling, laceup, fashion, style, retro, blue, vintage, retro

  2. Nice boots! They do seem perfect for traveling and exploring! Boots are great for climbing, in fact I wore a pair for all of hiking Machu Picchu for 2 days!

    just started reading your blog, and i must say i really like it! :D

    but did you know that saltwater ruins leather?
    it makes the leather look really ugly. remember my mom always told me to not go down to the ocean while wearing nice leather boots.

    But I guess you can fix them with those sprays or shoecream/shine thingies.

    they have allready started spreading salt, pebbles and sand on the roads here because of icy roads/snow... no good for your shoes, and no good for skaters such as my BF :P

  8. There is just something to be said for boots that are chic, snug, stylish, comfortable, walkable and WARM. The fact that it is all of these things makes it a perfect pair of boots for fall, no?

    I think that it allows you to clamber over rocks and walk along the wet seashore is pretty brilliant.

    I love your layering with bright colours.

  9. The weather is vastly different from Washington, but usually by the time January comes around it's dreary and wet in Virginia. Not my favorite time of year.

    By the way, those boots are so adorable I could squeal! I love the shearling and the lace up detail. Very cute outfit for the boots:)

  10. @Martine, thank you for your comment; I didn't get my feet all the way wet so the boots are fine. Even so...shoes are made to be worn & even ruined, when they fall apart I know I got good use out of them. :)

  17. So cute! I love the skirt, its a nice blue with the navy tights and jacket. Just wondering, you dont have to answer but do you have a job? Or is your blog your job, like you get dressed and take pictures and stuff. Like I'm just wondering what you do on an average day.
    Again, I'm not trying to be nosy, if I am like that sorry =P

  27. @DragonRose, well so far. My feet didn't feel wet and they don't appear to be damaged. They're faux leather.
