Stepping out in boat shoes this summer

Boat shoes for spring & summer wear

Boat shoes. Perhaps seen as the preferred footwear choice of Italian men or Sailors? However, they shouldn’t be – and not for much longer!

Boat shoes – or deck shoes – are a great choice of practical but chic footwear for women too for the spring/summer seasons to wear for any event or occasion. Similar to a loafer, this no-frills footwear works perfectly for me as a busy Mum-of-two.

I can go shopping in them, do the school run, wear them on a hot summer holiday or just run errands in them.

They are stylish, comfortable and great quality. I know that these shoes will last me a long, long time despite the miles and the terrain I put them through!

You know when you put on a pair of shoes and have to walk at least 10 miles in them to wear them ‘in’ first? Well I know that this new pair I have are not going to be like that. They already feel like slippers and do not rub my feet at all.

I am wearing the Pippa boat shoes from Chatham in tan/pink worth £95. Chatham do a superb range of shoes and boots for women, men and kids.

How cute are the pink soles on mine?!

Get the nautical look right this season and wear boat shoes with:

  • Keep it casual — team deck shoes with a pair of shorts, a tee and a chunky knit to keep you warm in the evening.
  • Wear them with a pretty floral dress for summer fetes and beach holidays.
  • Team them with cropped jeans or trousers and a pretty blouse for a Kate Middleton sophisticated look.
  • Or for cooler spring days go for chinos and a sweater like I am wearing (above).

Don’t you just love new footwear?!

Love, Jess x
