Morning beauts! Or should I say afternoon…
Lazy mornings are the best. Me and El had a spinning class last night so following that with a lie in was as expected; dreamy. I’ve finally gotten over the weekend. It ended up being a ping pong and karaoke fest; what a treat! On Sunday, me and El made a trip to Westfield in Stratford. We almost drowned in the sea of swimmers (Christmas shoppers out in October?!) but thankfully I managed to bag these hot boots from H&M for only £25. Bargain! The platform heel makes them uber comfy and I love the subtle python print in suede. I’m thinking an oversized knit, mini skirt and thigh socks would work quite well with these but we’ll see. Hello Winter 2014 – I’m almost ready for you.

Houston, we have a problem!
My shoe fetish seems to be getting worse. To be honest, I wasn’t even aware that I had one but lately I can’t seem to get enough of buying shoes. Unintentionally (intentionally?!), recently I’ve bought more types of footwear than I have anything else. It all started with these oversized beauties. My new kicks came not too long after that, and then most recently (like last week!) I got these dreamy heels and flats. I’m not complaining though, I just hope this isn’t getting a tad repetitive for you…
One thing I am annoyed by is that these boots aren’t on H&M’s website. This is the second time this has happened, where I haven’t been able to link you to the actual product. I bought my pair in Oxford Circus the other evening and I’ve seen them in quite a few of the central London branches. Mine are made from genuine leather and were only £40. They have a leather imitation pair on the website for a little less, which you can check out here. The difference between the two however is that the leather pair look A LOT better. I’d personally recommend you making a trip down store!
Special delivery, these have just arrived!! Dreamy! I saw them a couple weeks back on Topshop’s website and forgot to order them. Luckily while looking for a little bit of NYE inspiration a couple of days ago, I found that they’d gone in to the sale. Bonus! How could I resist? Nothing beats a bit of lace, and that stiletto heel is nothing short of sexy! I’m looking forward to pairing these up with something hot!

You might have noticed everyone is sporting over the knee boots this season. As much as I like them, I found it pretty hard to find boots that would fit, so I prefer to stick to my good oldies – knee high boots from Bertie.
This length is a lot more versatile when it comes to working up an outfit around them. Paired here with M&S skirt and a fluffy angora jumper from ASOS.
To lighten up my sombre all black outfit I have worn chandelier earrings from Accessorize and Frazer Hart white gold ring. Have a great day everyone!
Me and El went shopping this weekend. As usual, we had a lovely time. I also found a gorgeous pair of oversized boots in H&M. I’m in love! Here’s a little sneak peak of what they look like. I know I know, I shouldn’t tease you. I promise I’ll pair them with an outfit and shoot some photos for you later though.
Growing up, every boy wanted to be in the army, wear the uniform, holster a gun and destruct all before him in a tank. Thankfully for me, ageing and wisdom camouflaged that dream as I’m too pretty to fight and too young to die.
Not wanting to look like an attendee at a fancy dress shin dig or the latest recruit on the front line, I’ve opted for some contrast with this leather panel sweatshirt from Zara.
Dressed in a pair of camouflaged jeans courtesy of Zara, is as close as I’m willing to get to that dream.
This look wouldn’t be complete without a pair of Converse. I’m wearing black All star hi leather thinsulate boots.
Ctrl, over and OUT!

Earlier I was looking at the Ugg website, hoping to order some new Ugg boots. Not exactly the prettiest of footwear but definitely the most comfortable; it’s starting to get really cold in London and I’m not a fan of frozen toes. On logging onto the website, I saw these cute shoes. I like the fact that Ugg are becoming more of a image conscious brand without compromising their appeal of comfort. These daywear pumps look really cute and extremely comfy. It’s a shame they aren’t available in the UK!

So, evidently, I decided not to go with the Black Plexi Ankle Boots from Maison Martin Margiela. As much as I loved them (and still do), I just couldn’t see how they would fit into my wardrobe. Nor did they look very practical, heel-wise. Remember this? But I am still looking for a pair of black ankle boots to see me through the winter. These have caught my eye and I love them all for separate reasons. Maybe I’ll just buy them all… I wish! Haha

I want these Black Leather Plexi – Ankle Boots so bad. I saw someone wearing them over a week ago and I’ve only just found out that they are from the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M range that was launched recently. At £180 they are a little pricey but knowing me, I’ll regret not buying them as soon as they sell out. Which they will! Decisions, decisions…

It’s all about the boot when it comes to this seasons footwear. And no ordinary boot it is… embroidery, studs, embellishments, prints, animal skin- you name it! The louder, the better! We have decided to search the high street for it’s offerings on this trend. Here are the best picks of those kick ass cowboy boots.
From left to right, top row, Michael Kors leather and calf hair cowboy boots, £810; Zara high heel cowboy boot with mini studs, £99.99; Zara high heel cowboy ankle boot with cow leather inserts, £69.99.
Second row, Chloe ‘Susanna’ studded leather boots, £850; Sam Edelman ‘Stevie’ , £190; Topshop Arson Flame western boots, £95.
Oh this is the most exciting time to shop, isn’t it? The high street is full of transitional pieces to help you make that comfortable move from summer dresses and sandals to padded coats and boots. Zara is one of the stores that does ‘pre-season’ oh so well! Their new collection holds many knitwear pieces, ranging from light to chunky. You will find a couple of those very much wanted ‘fantasy’ coats, made with versatile fabric to keep you warm and cool depending on the weather.
And of course Zara’s boots, are one of the best on the high street, from biker to cowboy-eat your heart out!
