Unfortunately for the sun worshippers amongst us, the British summer has come and gone in the blink of an eye although many of us are questioning whether it was really ever here at all..
Either way, the attire for dog walking is starting to become much tricker with the inevitable prospect of incoming rain, wind and bitter temperatures; slipping on a pair jeans, trainers and a t-shirt is no longer enough to take your four legged friend on a country walk adventure. Wardrobe planning for such an event now involves careful bartering with the typical British weather, practicality, style and of course, your muddy pup.
So, where to begin with planning the flawless outfit for your country dog walk that will not only leave you dry and comfortable but also with a big grin on your face triggered by that feeling you get when you know you look great.
Here at The Spanish Boot Company we pride ourselves on our durable, resilient and incredibly stylish outdoor wear which is why this month, we have chosen to make you a Look Book and recommendations for your country dog walks coming into Autumn:
Obviously here at The Spanish Boot Company we’re going to recommend our lovely boots! Protective, waterproof and highly durable, our boots will stick with you through puddles, mud, wet grass, rocky terrain and of course mucky doggy paws and claws. So here are our shoe choice:
The Black Leather Yard Boot
Our slightly shorter yard boot is ideal for autumn. They’re very practical, fashionable and have a tread sole for extra grip which is ideal when you’re trying to keep up with your pooch. Crafted out of fantastic quality leather that if kept waxed is fully water resistant, you couldn’t find a more perfect pair of country dog walking boots
The Classic Spanish Riding Boot
We couldn’t resist throwing these into the Look Book too.. These classics are not just for riding but are perfect for walking too. They’re guaranteed to keep you warm and comfy and coming in a choice of either a flat rubber sole or rubber sole with grooves, these boots will keep you safe and sturdy on your autumnal and wintery walks.
It doesn’t matter how comfy your boots are (which ours always are!), wearing the correct pair of socks underneath the boots is important. We stock some lovely socks which are specifically designed to go under your boots and poke out of the top to show off the pretty designs.
Stretch Lace Boot Cuffs
Pretty and intricately designed, these socks are great for slipping on under your boots. These socks were created for the purpose of jazzing up your outfit, adding some femininity as well as giving some extra comfort. We offer these in a variety of colours to suit any boot!
Jackets are a highly important part of the complete dog walker’s outfit. It’s the garment that keeps you most warm, protects you from bad weather and it’s the item then everyone will see and notice.
Women’s Tweed Military Style Jacket: Purple Trim
We have selected this particular jacket for the dog walker’s Look Book because of how gorgeous and warm it is. The traditional tweed radiates class, sophistication and British heritage whilst the purple and pink brocade shouts style and femininity. This is a real classic design and pattern with a modern, fun twist. Crafted from 100% wool, this will keep you protected from the bad weather whilst making you feel absolutely great at the same time.
