Murphy’s First Bike Ride & Lotus lace Up Ankle Boots

Inspired by the sights, sounds and fragrance of the Dorset Autumn right outside my window. I was determined to steal an hour ‘out of office’ and get on my bike. The result? An image heavy post that captured Murphy’s first bike ride and my latest Lotus boots tan leather, lace-up ankle boots, lined with soft shearling…

Murphy’s first bike ride.

The sky was blue, the sun was out a perfect afternoon for a bike ride. I fitted Murphy’s harness, accessorised my outfit with a couple of poo bags. Laced up my boots and we were off …

Marc had already packed my bike in the back of the car, with detailed verbal instructions on how to get it out and back in. Just as well because getting it back in was tricky.

I must admit, I have not ridden my bike for over a year.  Marc and I used to go out together with the dogs running beside us, until Marc’s bike was borrowed never to be seen again. Bike riding is something I prefer not to do alone, especially as we would stop off halfway round at the local!

Murphy did not turn a hair at being placed in the basket and rather coolly let his paw hang over the side as if he was born to ride! Let me tell you I was out of practice and wobbled very un- coolly along the country lanes.

The hidden shearling lining will make it a boot you will probably live in for most of the winter!

Leather Lotus Boots

 

The Amira Leather Tan lace-up is a superb boot for town or country. Warm, comfy and in my opinion super stylish. Smart enough to wear to work and perfect for casual weekend wear. The hidden shearling lining will make it a boot you will probably live in for most of the winter!

I plan on wearing them with a very long denim skirt and a super chunky jumper next, what do you think?

An Update:

I recently wrote about the fact I have been decluttering for most of this year and not buying as many clothes as I use to. Basically I am opting out of the fast fashion rat-race!

I recently found out about a wonderful Site called Micolet that sells second hand good quality clothing, some are even new with labels! Take a look!

You can find them here : https://www.micolet.co.uk/

    Oh Ashley before I mention the outfit I have to say AWWWWWW MURPHY LOOKS SO CUTE IN YOUR BASKET!! Like a real-life laid back Toto, lol 😉

    I can only imagine how comfy and warm the boots are – you know how much I love Lotus too. They look absolutely perfect with the flared cords – the whole outfit has a touch of the 70s about it which I love. TOP TOP photos too by Charlotte, the colours just sing!
