Blogging Friendships & A Competition | Seven Boot Lane

A couple of months ago, Seven Boot Lane gifted me some trainers (which I featured on this post). Around the same time, they gifted some gorgeous boots to my blogging friend Emma from Life at the Little Wood. And we got to talking (as bloggers do) and thought it would be a nice thing to share each other's new shoes on a joint blog post...with photos taken while having coffee and a catch up. Following on the theme of blogging friendships, our other local blogging friend, Nic came along to take the photos.
I first came across Emma not long after she started her blog. She lives locally to me and we have a number of mutual friends (as is always the case in little old Northern Ireland!) so within a few months, we'd met for a coffee and a chat. It's so great to have a blogging friend you can talk to in real life...the break from social media is a benefit in itself!
So this post showcases that friendship...and also our fab new shoes. I think we both looked at each other's selection and thought 'Swapsies??!'
I've spoken about my Appaloosa trainers on the other post and I have to say that they're coming into their own now the weather has warmed up a little bit. I love how they dress down these quite formal culottes from Warehouse (AW16).
Meanwhile,  Emma went for the Grace boot in Bordeaux but they're almost a chestnut colour - absolutely stunning and they worked so well with this blush duster coat from Primark, which I've just bought in the khaki colour - blogging friendships can work out expensive!
So to celebrate blogging friendships and fabulous shoes, Seven Boot Lane have offered me a pair of their shoes to give away here on the blog! The winner can chose their favourite pair from the Seven Boot Lane SS17 collection (subject to availability) and all you have to do is follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter widget below. The competition will run until Saturday 15th April and I'll notify the winner as soon as possible afterwards!
Good luck and thank you to Seven Boot Lane for supplying the prize....and to Emma for the blogging friendship - you can read her post here!

    1. After admiring so many pairs of gorgeous shoes I think I'd have to invest in a good pair of comfy trainers. Ones that would look great with anything and stand the test of running about after a 4 year old!! And plus I always forget to buy myself anything these days 😁
