Lotus Shoes, Let me share a shoe boot.

Morning everyone - How are you doing?

Today's blog comes from a very happy Mummabstylish.  Let me tell you why that is.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Lotus Shoes - yes me!  I was so, so pleased when they emailed me to ask if I'd like to write a gift post for them!  Would I? Let me think about this .... YES.

They suggested I look through their collection of shoe boots to pick out a few favourites and go from there.
Have you ever tried to narrow down your favourite from a collection that are all super cute and would look great on my feet and compliment my wardrobe?

Having bought a couple of items from Lotus footwear in the past I knew from the off they'd be perfect - and perfect they were.

I settled on these absolute darlings.




The gorgeous Lotus *Jacaranda floral ankle boot arrived in the box wrapped in crisp white paper, I fell for them straight away - knowing they would be worn and appreciated, and look super cute as well.  Once I put them on, well what can I say - they slipped on in the same way that Cinderella's glass slipper did.  The soft insole felt like I was walking on clouds of marshmallow, I don't know about you but I really struggle to get comfortable shoes that look on point - you can obviously see and hear that these were perfect and did both!  The Jacaranda floral shoe boot comes in three colour choices, navy, black or burgundy, but I knew navy was the one for me but for £59.99  I might be adding either of the other colours some time soon!





Isn't the pattern adorable - and the navy makes such a change from black.  The patent heel is a winner height-wise, not too flat, but not too high.  They fasten with an inside zip, making them quick and easy to put on - don't you just hate having to struggle to fasten boots up?






Taking full advantage of the weather on my morning visit to The Crescent Turner for morning tea and a nosey around.  This impressive location boasts stunning views across the estuary, a five minute drive to the sea front and some welcoming eateries including Wheelers that I mentioned in my previous post Here.
This occasion was definitely one that deserved a 'proper' shoot  (I say that very slightly tongue-in-cheek - because I'm not a model, lol) so I enlisted the help of my talented god-daughter Esther Ruby see previous blog posts here and here.




How do you like the matching bag?  Because me -  I'm over the moon with the #MyLotus *Arvida Tote Handbag that arrived along side the boots. 
It's just the right size for me, I like to throw everything in a bag and go, with this I'll look super stylish as I do!
Navy was one of the colours missing from my collection & this Arvida fits in so well. With handles long enough to pull onto your shoulder and a zipper across the top, everything stays safe inside.  It has three pockets, including a phone holder.  The half flower pattern makes this bag an eye-catching piece of arm candy and a striking addition to any handbag collection.
Why not check them out yourself, you're sure to find one or two you like!

I figured, for morning tea at this stylish boutique hotel, a bold patterned long line shirt over straight leg trousers, would look fabulous.  Both these items are from Matalan & they compliment the shoe boots and bag so well, I can't wait to wear this again. 
I love to hear your comments, which I so look forward to reading.

A very big 'shout out' to my beautiful and talented god-daughter Esther Ruby for producing some fantastic photographs - Thank you. X

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are my own opinions and 100% honest.
