Spring Is Here! Ilse Jacobsen’s Sky Blue Boots Now In My Store

Spring is in the air and also in my store! I now carry Ilse Jacoben’s high-end rubber boots in one of the new hot Spring 2011 colors — Sky Blue. Ok, I personally love that color. I can even see myself mowing the grass (that would be a first, ha!) wearing them with a casual top, white shorts and hopefully, this year, some tanned legs!


 Note: I am making some changes to my existing store. I don’t have all the boots colors shown yet. If you don’t find what you are looking for in my store, just ask for any color, model and size and I will make them available to you.

To enter my store Splendid Willow Avenuego here.


I just stumbled upon the Swedish clothing line, Branting. The company and design team is based out of Gotland, the stunning island between Sweden and Finland where I spent 19 happy summers! I love these outfits. Bohemian chic for warmer days.

It was fun to learn that Martha Stewart Living had contacted IJ’s US distributor asking for a pair of boots for a photo shoot (May issue). The boots are just a prop object in the article but at least the word is getting out.

Enjoy the first week of May!

    I love that clothing line…your right…it does have a slight prairie romantic look to it and so feminine.

  • I love the boots. Wish I had some legs. I’m just so short that they overwhelm me. A girl can dream!

  • Charlotta says:

    How fun that you are receiving new and fresh colours for your shop. A change of season in the retail world is always such a lift!

    You’d rock the duck egg blue ones in the garden darling. There would be car accidents if you mowed the lawn in the white shorts and boots! :)

    Congrats to Ilse on a good PR effort. Martha’s endorsement is huge!

    Hoppas ni hade en harlig middag i Fredags.

  • Arohanui says:

    Wow! I love the Ilse Jacobsen boots and the raincoat! On your store site, there is a photo of a woman sitting on the beach – is that the Mandarin coat she is wearing? The colour looks different from the other pictures (and incredible!). I also love the black pants she is wearing, do you have a link for those? I am assuming you will ship to NZ?

  • love the new colors. i do need to order a pair soon! happy may!

  • Style Attic says:

    Hi Mon! Just wanted you to know, I have been keeping up with your blog, but you wouldn’t know it because I haven’t been able to comment.

  • Hi Mon-loving those linen blue dresses; I want to wear them and go to Gotland! Sigh…xo

  • Tina says:

    Heeej Mon!
    Wow, vilket inspirerande inlägg. Gillar även jag den där speciella mjuka himmelsblå färgen! Också den fina klädkollektionen. Den bohemiska stilen ligger mig allt mer varmt om hjärtat!
    Längtar efter att ha möjlighet att lägga in en order i din fina shop. Just nu för mycket utgifter- att fixa och renovera är en strid ström av utgifter- men snart så! Kan ju knappt motstå dessa blå skönheter:)…
    Önskar dig en toppendag!
    //Kram Tina

  • Julie at BV says:

    Dear Monika,
    I was waiting for tomorrow to wish Happy Mother’s day!!! but I guess we’ll both be too busy with our respective families. I hope your home get to be full of your favorite flowers tomorrow.

    P.S. I Love the new addition to your store.

    Hi Mon,
    I especially love the end image with the giant flower against the soft white walls and perfect table (and boots!). ~Carrie
