This giveaway has now finished.
*This post features a product I was gifted for review. Also, an awesome giveaway at the end. Oh, and pictures of Milla looking super cute ;) *
You wouldn’t think some things could be hereditary. Sure; eye colour, allergies, the shape of your nose. But a shoe obsession? Really? Yet it would appear a certain young lady of mine, lets call her Milla, is as much of a shoe fan as her mum!
In my younger years, I may have had, erm, a fair few shoes…I had a pair of high heels in every colour of the rainbow, boots in black, red and brown, fancy high tech runners that never ran a day in their lives. I would buy entire outfits to match my shoes.
Naturally after having a baby, my priorities shifted. So you can imagine my
delight surprise when Milla started showing an interest in shoes. All her shoes are kept in the same place, and whenever it’s time to go out, she will go and choose a pair of shoes to wear. Sure, there have been a few dodgy calls, (sandals with socks is a repeat offender) however, generally, the girl got style. As Milla’s speech has improved, she has begun naming her shoes. We have ‘Sparkle Shoes’, ‘Crocs’ (hey, they’re cute on little kids OK) ‘Light Shoes’, ‘New Pink Shoes’ (which are not new anymore, but still hold their title) ‘Heart Shoes’ and, introducing… ‘Boots’!
The lovely people at bettskids gifted Milla these super cute winter boots, “Magnolia”, for me to review. Milla’s very first pair of boots! (is this an actual milestone, or am I still too obsessed with shoes?!)
Obviously, the first thing I noticed was how cute they are. I find sometimes children’s boots can be modeled too similarly on adult boots. I liked the fact these boots look like little girls boots. I love the flower detail, and how the burgundy and pale pink break up the black, as well as the pink stitching.
The boots are made from leather, and feel very firm, with a strong toe. (Excellent if your little ones are prone to scuffing the toes of their shoes, as mine does!) The inside of the boot is padded, and really looks like it will keep little toes warm during Winter at the park or on walks. Also, the sole of the boots are non slip, an absolute necessity when out and about in the wet.
Of course, none of this matters to a two year old fashionista, so, most importantly, what did Miss Milla think?
She loves them! She has always been very interested in ‘Mummy’s boots’, so was so excited to have a pair of her own. As soon as I put them on her, she was off in front the mirror, checking herself out. It is now a struggle to get her into anything other than ‘Boots’, so I think it’s safe to say Milla gives them her ‘stamp’ of approval!
