Mama Style // Casual Sunday Strolls With Hotter Shoes

The last few weekends have been pretty crazy over here so I was very much looking forward to taking things a bit slower this weekend. Josh had to work on Saturday so I spent the day with my Mother in law and niece which was lovely and Bella had so much fun with her cousin. Sunday was our first day off together with no plans in what feels like forever. We had a chilled morning at home lounging around in our PJ’s, enjoying bacon and egg bagels before heading out to Scotney Castle for a walk in the afternoon between the rain showers. The perfect type of Sunday that leaves you feeling content and refreshed ready for the madness to being again on Monday.

My go to weekend look is always fairly casual and normally consists of a shirt or blouse, ripped jeans and some kind of flats. I recently picked up this blue pinstriped shirt which I absolutely loved as soon as I laid eyes on it, but even more so once I got it home and tried it on. It’s oversized which I love and it could easily be dressed up or down. It will definitely be a staple in my wardrobe over the coming Autumn months and I have even been back and bought it in white too as it’s such a versatile piece.

For our relaxed Sunday stroll I paired my new shirt with my favourite distressed skinny jeans that I wear to absolute death, my trusty mac and my Hotter Shoes tan loafers that I got a few weeks back when I was invited along to a blogging event with Hotter Shoes to celebrate their new Maidstone branch opening. The event itself was lovely and relaxed, myself and some fellow bloggers got to learn a bit about the company itself while scoffing cakes and sipping bubbles before we each got to choose a pair of shoes to take away with us.

If I’m completely honest at first I was slightly dubious about Hotter Shoes I had always just assumed that they only did styles aimed more at the older generation but after taking a look at their website beforehand I quickly changed my mind as there were a good handful of styles that I liked, especially these ‘Tara‘ ones!

I chose a pair of the ‘Abbeyville‘ loafers in Tan although I must admit I was very tempted by the black and leopard print version too! I can honestly say that these shoes are the comfiest pair of shoes I have EVER owned. They are super lightweight and the lining has the most amazing cushioning. Hotter shoes offer half sizes as well as a wide variety of width fittings too to make sure that everyone gets the perfect fit. My new loafers fit like a dream which is so important for me as a busy Mama, they are smart enough to wear to work but stylish enough to pair with jeans at the weekend too!
