While We Were Hunting Boots

Happy Saturday!  Thomas and I are back from a short getaway with my mum to bookend my maternity leave, which ends in a week.  There was a very large box waiting for me last night.  In that box were my highly anticipated Hunter boots!  If you follow me on Twitter, @redmare, then you will know I have been obsessing over these boots for well over six months.  Ever since my friend Tracy introduced me to them, I just couldn't get them out of my head.  Or off my Google search;)  
Jeremy finally decided to grant my wish of owning these boots.  These are an early Mother's Day pressie.  What a guy, eh?  
In case you are not obsessed like me, these wellington gum boots are all the rage in Britain and among celebrities worldwide.  Any music festival like Coachella or Glastonbury, you will see rows of Hunters.  (One of my favourite searches is "celebrities wearing Hunter boots".)  I chose the Pewter pair:

Endorsed by the Royal Family, pish posh.
As they were ordered online, it was tough to know what size to get, but I chose a 39.  I am usually a size nine, but in UK sizes I'm a six.  Very bizarre, although it makes me feel petite;)  They fit great in the foot, but I will say are a bit tight around my calf.  Tracy warned me to go up a size, which I found to be a great tip.  
Do you have any boots or shoes you keep going back to and just can't get out of your head?  I realize these Hunters are hardly summer footwear, but the heart wants what it wants;)
