My Favourite Boots and Some Clothing Essentials!

My favourite pair of boots are not exactly what you'd call elegant. Clunky would be more like it - they're heavy and grey, and they don't really go with anything in my wardrobe.


Salomon boots - I bought mine in Tiso in Glasgow 
But I have felt like a new woman since investing in a really decent pair of hillwalking boots- it is absolutely amazing what a difference it makes. Previous pairs were borrowed from friends or picked up in sales and have never really felt comfortable - these are like walking on air.  

Now I've determined to invest in the rest - flattering it ain't, but proper hiking gear should make my outdoor rambles a helluva lot more comfortable. Here are a few essentials that really make a difference.







Any hikers or hillwalkers reading? I'd love to know what really works for you!

Oh man, I can not stress enough how important are the hiking shoes. But you figured it out yourself :-D
Glad you have your own pair of bad ass hicking boots, ready to conquer the world :-D

Good shoes are the most important thing! Great to know you got your perfect pair, I'm still in search for one , ideal one! From gear - can recommend good breathable tshirts , something that works when you get hot :) and hopefully this year summer will be here ! Enjoy your outdoor !

The socks are an overlooked part. They need to be super comfortable and if possible anti blister. They were a must in my trekking days!

but I bet they're the most comfortable. I've been eyeing up a few pairs of boots like this because I love the outdoors but I don't have the right 'gear'. Thanks for a great helpful post. xx
