A welcome to winter – and the ultimate winter shoe collection

I’ve talked a lot in previous posts about my love for the seasons and the changes that take place during the calendar year as the days lengthen and then shorten.

My pick of the changes is, firstly, the food, and secondly (a very close second) the wardrobe switch. Last year as spring was rolling in I deviated briefly from my food and travel posts to write about my spring/summer shoe collection. It was such a popular post that I thought today I’d share with you my winter boot/shoe collection, along with some of the top pics from my wardrobe for the coming season.

I’m more excited about writing this post than I was last spring because my winter shoe collection is by far my favourite – for the simple reason that I have a huge weakness for boots.

In fact I’ve already had my first pedicure of the season in a desperate attempt to will the warm weather to descend.

I’m a little tardy with this post. That is to say last month – 26th June to be exact – marked twenty years since Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone was first published. Yes, twenty years since Harry’s first adventure.

If you’re not a fan or you’ve never read the books (really??) then that may not mean much. But if you are a fan then this anniversary is something quite personal. Because it conjures memories of the first time you read the books. Of how incredible it was to be introduced to Harry’s world and all the wonderful, weird and sometimes dangerous characters that inhabit it.
