Keeping Those Tootsies Cosy

So let’s face it, winter is on its way. I’m such a summer girl and I’m sad that those long dreamy summer days are gone…but I do get excited over the prospect of filling up the boys wardrobe with winter goodies! That’s one the best things about growing children, new wardrobes I get to fill each season (kidding, kind of). Burden on the wallet, but oh so much fun to do. Can you tell I’m a bit of a shop-a-hollic?

So first thing that was on the agenda was keeping The Nuggets toes warm with some Ugg boots. I have pulled together some of my favourite options available below, both high and low price range so there is something for everyone!

Last winter I bought the boys Cotton on Kids boots, they were great but my sides have seriously smelly men feet already. So while the Cotton On Kids ones were great the synthetic materials meant that after a few weeks they were smelly as! Is it just my kids or is it normal for their feet to smell like vinegar? So this year I splashed out and went for the real deal and so far no stink! I understand not everyone can afford the real deal so I have included some options from as little as $8.

These are the pair I bought the boys for this winter, although ours are a different colour. We got a brown pair and the leather is waxed, so it is slightly shiny. Super cute and goes with everything! The boys wear them most morning and they always rock them to swimming lessons in the colder months.

Kids Oxford Boots $95 

Everyone I talked to about Ugg boots suggested Emu. They are very cute, well made and come in a variety of super awesome animal designs. If I wasn’t being fussy about the boys boots going with everything, then I would have got these as they would’ve LOVED to have shark boots. Sorry boys, maybe next year!

My favourites are the Shark and Zebra; I love the subtle muted pink on the Zebra pair for little girls.

Available from Emu or a  number of stockists in NZ anywhere from $109-$120

Kmart, I don’t know about you but this is one of my FAVOURITE stores! The bargains but great quality products to be had are endless. I was wandering through the store the other day and spied these bad boys. How cute are they?! Even better, only $8! Grab them quick as I imagine they will sell out fast.

The two tones in this pair are so on point!

The old faithful, Cotton On Kids. You can always rely on them for on-trend items and this years slippers are just as good as last years. These are usually $25 but there is a current online special for $17.46! So get your credit card ready and hit their online store next nap time to snap some of these up.

For old times sake, and a bit of cuteness, here is a shot of The Nuggets in their old Cotton On Kids boots from last winter.

Yes Oscar has a black eye and egg on the side of his head. Always in the wars!

Happy shopping!
