Lets Get Warm: Boots

Tall Black Boots

From left to right: Kurt Geiger - Willing: £195, Kurt Geiger - Waltz: £ 200, Vintage America: £215, 
Aldo - Miola: £80, Aldo - Floreum: £160, Dune - Tags: £159

It's no secret that I have a small obsession with shoes and particularly BOOTS. I feel like you can never have enough boots. At the moment I'm after a pair of long black boots, boring some may say, but so essential! I can be a bit picky when it comes to the shape of boots so I'm conscious that some of these might look a bit similar! I'm partial to a bit of a heel so I'm quite drawn to the American Vintage boots, I like that cowboy-esque style as well. As for the slightly flatter heeled boots, it's a toss up between the two Aldo pairs for me! YUM. I can see one of these pairs ending up in my shoe collection, I just need to decide between heel or no heel!

Let's Get Warm: Coats

Winter Coats
From right to left: ASOS: £90, Karen Millen: £325, Darling via Oasis: £70
Boohoo Biker Coat: £45, Boohoo Peplum Coat: £40, Boohoo Military Coat: £60

There's no running from it anymore, it's cold, the weather has turned and it's time to get warm! I need a new coat for the winter so I've been trawling the internet for my perfect winter coat and these are some of my favourite picks! If I had the cash I'd be all over the Karen Millen coat! As you can tell I was quite taken with Boohoo's current selection! The red coat makes me think of Christmas for some reason and I love the vibrant colour of the Darling jacket which is currently available from Oasis. 

I'm terrible at making decisions so I'm going to have to have a little think about which coat to get.... I keep thinking about the Karen Millen one but it would have to come out of my Australia fund and I just can't have that haha.

Bristol Fashion Week AW13

Ahh Bristol Fashion Week, one of my favourite events of the year. It's always so much fun, I love the mix of catwalk strutting with cool dance routines and this year even had a little ballet segment. <3 The hosts Andrew Barton and Mark Heyes have such great chemistry and are always full of advice for the upcoming seasons trends. It's great to have a show which features affordable fashion with outfits you might actually wear! I posted a couple of videos of the show to Instagram if you want to check them out!

I couldn't very well go along to BFW and not do a little posing myself so here I am! I decided BFW would be the perfect place to wear my new French Connection skinnies that I picked up at the Sketch to Store event recently. Love them!

Can't wait for SS14!
