I was going to show you an outfit with my new sparkly flats today but I've moved that post to later this week and instead, I'm showing off my new Celtic & Co navy sheepskin boots on a St Patrick's Day trip to one of our local National Trust properties - Mountstewart:
You may remember that I blogged about my ugg-style boots back in January but as part of my research into other sheepskin boot alternatives, I found out that there is a British company making ethically sourced sheepskin boots in Cornwall. Emma from Celtic & Co got in touch with me shortly after I blogged about my other boots and told me about their Original Celt Boot, which is made from finest quality British sheepskin. It wasn't just the fact that these are made in Britain but these sheepskin boots are fashion with a clear conscience - the skins Celtic & Co use to manufacture their sheepskin footwear are predominantly from British sheep, with a very small proportion coming from Europe & they are always a by-product of the UK & European farming industry which operate within the highest regulations for animal welfare.
So I wore them today to Mount Stewart along with a bit of green for St Patrick's Day and I can vouch for their comfort and warmth. They also feel much more sturdy than my other boots - definitely better suited to day-time, outdoors wear. The shorter style is also more flattering to wear and perfect year round.

It was a lovely day down on the Ards Penninsula - really felt like spring and I couldn't believe how many flowers were out in full bloom. Mountstewart has it's own micro-climate so it is weeks ahead of most other gardens over here.
Love this shot of me and my Hello Kitty girls hanging out in the gardens..
Linking up today with Very Busy Mama for #realmomstyle. Do have a look on Maria-Jose's blog post to see all the other mums taking part and if you're a blogger, you can add your link too.
Oh and an #OperationFormalDress update - my gifted dress hasn't arrived yet and there's NO post today because it's a Bank Holiday over here - SOB. Fingers crossed it will arrive tomorrow. But thank you to everyone who has gotten in touch to offer dresses. Love you all!
