I’m back to blogging after a hectic week in college. I had such great intentions to pop up my usual two blog post but of course, life got in the way and blogging went out the window so maybe that’s a lesson in time management for me 🙈🤓
Anyway, this post is dedicated to my new love – these block heel booties from New Look. I picked these up in my old stomping ground, their Wexford store, about 2 weeks ago and I’m living in them. I was on the hunt for a decent fitting boot that I could wear in college and work that was stylish but still functional. It sounds like an easy thing to find in the sales but my God, it was a nightmare trying to find the right fit! These however were like a glove from the moment I put them on!
They’re part of New Look’s Wide Fit shoe collection and come in 3 colours – black, tan and burgundy. In Wexford I could only spot the black but now that I’ve seen the tan, I’m tempted to purchase those too! Being a wide fit they’re great for anyone that is a half size or if you want to wear a thicker sock with them and i even love that they’re wide around the ankle so they’re much more flattering to the shape of your leg than a boot that would close closer to your ankle. The block heel equals total comfort and stability. I’ve been wearing them in work for the last two weekends where I would be standing or running up and down the stairs for the best part of 8 hours and they have been a dream, considering the height of them with the built in platform. They boast a suede finish with a round toe so they’re very classic but the gold buckle adds a subtle bit of bling to the look.
The best part about these boots was the price, I have to say for the wear I’ve been getting out of them, they were so reasonable! They were originally €39.99 but were included in their €10 off boots promotion and then with my student discount I got an extra 10% off on top of that so the bottom line was just 27 quid – bargain!!!
So girls, if you’ve fallen for these shoes like I have you’ll have to pop onto the New Look website or drop in store soon 😉
