watching paint dry

Hello my lovely readers.
I've spent the past two days in work so tonight i've been cracking on with some design work. I apologise for my lack of outfit posts lately, i've found it really hard to find time and a place to take photos! I may post one tomorrow so watch this space.
Here is a little snippet in photos of what i've been doing

And I have to show you my new Zara blazer I picked up whilst visiting my boyfriend in Sheffield last weekend, It's such a great jacket and can be thrown on with almost anything to smarten up an oufit. I've worn it with my green highwaited jeans from american apparel teamed with a ralph lauren shirt & jumper

I love the check fabric, and with Zara you can gaurentee their garments will last. Great investment pieces!
Speak to you soon! x

With winter comes the need for investment in a new pair of boots, not only stylish but durable too. Last year I stumbled my way through the winter months in a pair of military boots with no grip on the heal. As you can imagine this was terribly dangerous however somewhat humorous- I must admit that I did enjoy ice skating round for a while, and fortunately I only fell once during that winter. So, with a new season comes a new pair of boots, I know I’ve just invested in my Bally boots but they're far too beautiful to abuse in such weather. I'm leaning towards the Chelsea style boots as you can throw them on with almost anything, they can look equally as good with trousers as they can with a skirt/shorts. Despite this, I really do have a passion for lace ups, there's something about lace up boots that excites much more than basic pull-on boots.

Given the change, ultimately I’d go for these no questions asked but that's definitely not going to happen.

I've contemplated breaking into my Dad's garage and engraving my own brass plates to attach to lace-ups. However, instead of Chanel I'd engrave my own name. So tempting.
For now though, here are some boots i've found whilst scouring the internet

ASOS ALFIE leather Chelsean ankle boots

As above

ASOS Annabelle lace boots

ASOS Ashley tweed boots

KG Bt Kurt Geiger Hawley lace up suede heel ankle boot

Seychelles Gallium lace up flat ankle boot

Carvela scarp shoe boot

Decisions decisions, I think i'm probably going to go for the ASOS Annabelle lace boots, the Carvela's are such beauties but unfortunately not a realistic price right now. Hope you're all well!

an I-Dea

So, not so much to report on. I'm going to use images rather than words, some inspiration from winter issues of POP and I-D. I couldn't resist including the beautiful Bambi in there

If the silence takes you I hope it takes me too

Photographs my boyfriend took. Wearing my new Bally boots, my new coat and my new vintage jumper I bought from ebay. It's so warm and snuggly. I'm big on vintage jumpers right now, they look great thrown on with a pair of jeans and the bonus is and you won't catch anybody wearing the same one.

Hope you're all well, and I'd like to thank you all for your lovely comments/e-mails!

I'm feeling rather frustrated at the moment, I have tons of work and am feeling considerably uninspired. I hate it when you get a block but you know that you've got ideas rattling around somewhere in your brain, you just can't seem to get them out. I've also lost my remote control for my camera, which is unfortunate because I wanted to take a photo of my new hat. Anyway, here are my new suede wedges. They're pretty simple but will look ace with some thick knit knee-high socks.

What are you favourite blogs/websites? I'd love to know.
Hope you're all well x
