Developing the perfect instagram account isn’t easy, it takes time, effort and good shoes. Yes, you read that right, if you want the picture perfect instagram account you need to be prepared to climb places that you wouldn’t normally climb, go off the beaten track, therefore good shoes are most definitely an essential.
The Merse Women’s Waking Boots from Trespass* fit the bill perfectly and have become my go to instagram photo hunting footwear of choice. The walking boots are sturdy with a good grip and ankle support, which is very much a requirement when climbing up slippy slope-y hills and climbing over fallen trunks and twigs.
Ain’t no tree stopping me with these bad boys on! I discovered the importance of instagram footwear on our most recent photography mission, when we decided to find a bluebell wood and I (stupidly) wore my Vans. We found the bluebells, up the top of a very steep hill. I struggled to get up said steep hill, I slipped and stumbled, at times I bum shuffled because my footwear just was not good enough for where we were. Bum shuffling in a forest is not good, I now have a hole in my trousers, RIP comfy trousers.
As you can see the bluebells were gorgeous but it was terribly difficult to climb, wearing my new go to instagram trainers would have made this shoot a whole lot easier. Judging by the looks of the above photo I think that Spencer, my (not so) glamorous instagram assistant could also do with a pair of snazzy walking boots like mine.
Watch out instagram – me and my new walking boots are gonna walk all over you!
And if you’re wondering, it was worth it, I got THE shot.
Come on, as if you seriously thought that I wasn't going to join in with the cliche insta mummy bluebell shots 🤷🏻♀️😂 Next to tick off the list is the cliche insta mummy rapeseed field shot ✔️ I almost died while trying to get this photo 🤦🏻♀️the bluebells were up a very steep hill and I ain't a steep hill kinda person 🙅🏻I actually bum shuffled for part of it because I am too unsteady on my feet 😂 ripped a hole in my flipping trousers too 🙈 Thankfully daddy was on hand to carry Aria and no damage was done to her and her awesome dress from @Rococlothing 💪🏻well done daddy 🤛🏻👏🏻
