I am royally hating this freezing weather, I feel mighty unprepared and my hibernation instinct is kicking in. Do you find you’re less social when the colder months set in? I love drinking cocktails with the girls in my local bars in the summer, but come Autumn/Winter I’d rather curl up on the sofa in a big jumper and snuggly socks!
I’d had my Friday evening planned to sit in the warmth and watch Gossip Girl but my boyfriend suggested we went out for a catch up. I wasn’t going to disagree as we never get to see each other, my issue was what to wear? What do you wear for a nice drink on an extremely cold evening? The fight with the wardrobe was always going to be on the cards… and it left my spare room in a complete mess….you’ll be pleased to know I did win by putting a simple outfit together.
I’m only 5ft4 so if I’m heading out in the evening I always like to have a bit of height. Before I left the house on this occasion I was in a complete battle with what footwear to go for, if I wore standard heels my feet would freeze, and my knee high boots were a bit too high. I decided to go for my new favourites from StylistPick, these boots were ankle boots and immediately gave me the ideal look for this scenerio.
StylistPick is a fabulous company that do a wide range of fashion items, and have recently launched their Boot boutique. You may have seen adverts with Cheryl Cole strutting around in some fantastic heels? Well she has a collection with StylistPick, which are available on their website. Going back to the boots, the main reason I love them is 1.They are only £35.00, 2. They will go with smart or casual ensembles and 3. My feet are always nice and toasty (& my owl socks are hidden! Hurrah!)
Now for a breakdown of my outfit…
What I’m wearing: Coat – AllSaints – £250.00, Top – Next – Lace Sweat Top £16.00, Bag – Fiorelli, Necklace – Topshop, Jeans – Topshop Leigh Coated Jeans – £42.00, Boots – StylistPick Adela Heeled Chelsea Boots – £35.00
For my evening of a cheeky drink with my boy, I went for a warm, casual look and these boots totally worked it. They have been the best new (bargain!) addition to my AW12 wardrobe… I’ve worn them with leggings and an oversized jumper, dresses and of course jeans…the possibilities are endless. Make sure you have a look at other goodies on their Boot Boutique.
