Last year, Stubbs and Wootton asked me if I wanted to do a shoe collaboration. Stubbs were the first pair of shoes I ever “splurged” on. They are known for their iconic smoking slippers. Each shoe has its own personality and once you get one pair, it’s hard not to want to collect all the cheeky and stylish motifs.


This is one of those “dream come true” product collaborations for me. The minute they asked me, I agreed straight away (who wouldn’t) and knew I wanted a pair with bows. I drew this bow on my iPad with procreate and sent the file over to the team. Within a day, they had mockups! It was very cool to see the mock up and once approved, it was even cooler to see the finished shoe in real life. They are even better than I imagined.

I am not-so-patiently waiting for the snow to melt here so I can start wearing these every day. I know they’re going to be treasured staples for me.


We picked two colorways:

Flax (with a blue bow) and Navy (with a flax bow). The best part, in my opinion, is that they areย made to order. While this means a longer lead time for shipping (4-6 weeks), it also means they won’t sell out. I know how frustrating it can be when there are collaborations and if you’re not on the minute it launches, you could be out of luck. These shoes will be worth the wait!! And maybe the snow will be melted by then ๐Ÿ˜‰

Whenever I wear Stubbs and Wootton shoes, I get a lot of questions about sizing. I’m almost always a 7 in shoes and I sometimes wear a 37.5 when it’s European sizing. For the Stubbs and Wootton slippers, I prefer going up 1/2 size to a 7.5. They do have a size chart that may help you make your decision. Personally I would either go with your regular size or size up 1/2, but would not size down. They should feel good right out of the box as they soften over time but won’t stretch out, so if it feels tight I would exchange.

I can’t even pick a favorite between the navy and the flax. Both are so versatile and will go with just about everything from jeans to dresses. And while they’re a “fun” shoe, I still find them to work as a neutral.

A little aggressive but if you get both…. Not sure I’d be brave enough to do this IRL, but thought it made for a fun photo!

As always, thank you thank youย thank you from the bottom of my heart. I feel so lucky to have you reading my blogโ€“ I don’t take it for granted. I hope you all love the shoes as much as I do ๐Ÿฅฐ


This natural linen smoking slipper is a great neutral! I would pair these with cropped dark denim and a striped shirt or a fun navy dress.


I can’t resist a great navy shoe. Consider this a fun twist on your go-to navy flats. Would pair great with white jeans!

Okay — these are both SO. cute.! I can’t pick a favorite! Congrats on the colab, Carly ๐Ÿ™‚


I wish I could afford both because I would totally wear them out with flax on one foot and navy on the other!


I wouldnโ€™t wear them if thereโ€™s going to be rain, but the linen can be spot cleaned like you would linen. I use a toothbrush and an Oxyclean paste


CARLY!! I am so happy for you and this collab! It is perfect, I am obsessed, the bow is everything! Congrats! So much happy news for you!!

The navy ones are my favorite! But also, you should 100% wear one of each – you are the creator, if you can’t then who can?! Hahaha


You look so pretty pregnant !
I love your dress with those blue flowers . Where did you get it ?


Thanks for introducing this brand! I don’t know if I can pull off the bows (but they are obviously really lovely and look amazing on you), but I really like the Stubbs and Wootton style – so classic. Definitely going to dive into their catalog.


Congratulations! This is such a perfect collaboration for both brands. Personally, LOVE the navy with the flax bow – would work well with so many of the outfits I typically wear.

Love the shoes! Love all your recommendations. You have the best taste and most importantly, CONGRATULATIONS on your baby! xoxo


Obsessed! Before I saw your last photo, I thought I want BOTH so I can wear them at the same time. What an incredible dream, Carly!


Congratulations on this colab Carly ๐Ÿฅฐ I am so glad these are made-to-order & wonโ€™t sell out because #1, I love them, and #2, I will need to save up for them ๐Ÿ˜ณ But it will give me something to look forward to & splurge on โ˜บ๏ธ
