Whilst touring through the ancient seaside town of Rye, I came across a terrific boutique called Bird. What lured me into Bird was the fact that, upon a previous visit to Rye, a pair of fantastic leather lace-ups had been on display in the window and caught my eye. Unfortunately, the store was closed at the time seeing as it was late in the evening but the image of those shoes stayed with me. Thankfully, upon my second visit, Bird was open for business. The shop is wonderfully curated and sells the loveliest clothes and accessories. Everything from Jonathan Adler candles to cozy knits made my heart go pitter-patter with joy and then, and then, I laid eyes on these boots and within an instant was deeply and tragically in love.
The boots are by a London-based company called Hudson. They're simple, well made, and, after a damp and lengthy walk through London, prove to be incredibly comfortable, too. Plus, they're totally changing my life. Promise.
