Long time no blog, I know! I'm getting back on the blogging game though and getting organised. Photoing in bulk, drafting posts, planning for the weeks ahead and hopefully sticking to this new plan, ahaha! Today I've got a very wintery outfit to share with you. I absolutely love Summer because I can't stand being cold, but I absolutely adore winter styling. Booties, chunky scarfs and faux far, yes please!
It seems to be getting rather cold now, definately time to get out the chunky knits, thick coats and boots (although I start wearing boots as early into the Autumn as I can get away with!). Even though I have a rather plentiful collection of boots I couldn't resist purchasing these lovely chunky heeled boots from Newlook. I've been after a pair of grungy style heeled boots for a while and these were exactly what I had in my head. I love the lace up front, giving them combat boot-esque sort of feel and the little side buckle is a really nice touch. Although they look quite high the platform sole means they don't have that much of a heel. I wore these to my graduation and didn't even feel like I was wearing a heel. Soooo easy and comfortable to walk in! They're still in stock at Newlook and can be found here for £30!
I decided to go quick simple and slightly monochrome with my outfit today, pairing my boots with my leather look jeans that I got from Miss Selfridge last year. I really need to get a new pair of these because I've kinda wore this pair to death! I think they make a nice change from plain denim jeans and leather look fabrics are always a great choice for the colder months. Over the top I opted for my Miss Selfridge check pattern coat because it's soooo warm and I love the faux fur collar. Also, it makes me feel fancy and if that's not an excuse to wear it, I don't know what is! Lastly, I added my chunky dog tooth print that I recently got from Primark for only £5. I think the check and dog tooth patterns pair really well together. The mix of patterns really helps to break up the outfit without being too over the top, what do you think?
