One of the greatest seasonal adventures in the spring is traveling up to the Skagit Valley Tulip fields for some flowery fun. The scenes are from a fairy tale. Perfectly tended flowers and a rainbow of colors for days.
The spring time in the PNW is temperamental, meaning you don’t always know what you’ll get. Half the days are gorgeous paradise, the rest are a little wet and muddy. If you’re headed up to the tulip fields, boots are in order.
The Washington Shoe Company hosted a little field trip for Seattle Bloggers to connect and talk about new trends in the boot business. The Seattle-based company is also celebrating 125 years being in business. You may recognize their brands like Chooka and Western Chief (available at retailers like Nordstrom, Target, Fred Meyer, and Kohl’s).
Me, my friend Torie, and a dozen other Seattle Bloggers headed up for a beautiful day. The sun was out, and there couldn’t have been a better day to do the trip. I went jacket-less all day and my long-sleeved dress kept me protected from the sun.
For boots, I chose the Freja’ Lace Up boots courtesy of Washington Shoe Company. I loved the quilting details and the laces gave it a fun look. I have wide calfs, so these were my first official pair of rain boots. All others rainboots I’ve tried on have never fit. The key for you wide-calf ladies is to find boots that are a little shorter. Chooka luckily has tons of options. I’m considering buying a few pairs!VIEW THIS POST
