The boots that were forgotten…

I recently had a clear out of my wardrobe, as you do and came across a pair of knee high military boots i totally forgot i owned. I’ve always heard people say this and often thought to myself  ‘how can you forget something like that’ but apparently it happens!

These leather boots are from Dune, they are so comfortable and i loved them at the time but gradually must have neglected these or bought new ones – which is a more likely scenario, we are all guilty of it I’m sure. I considered selling these on eBay but couldn’t bring myself to do it and I’m glad i didn’t as military has once again swept the high street. Brass button detailing, epaulettes, parka jackets with contrast sleeves, camouflage and of course the signature colour khaki.

So having found these boots, i have decided to introduce them back into my wardrobe and took them out to play today. I wore them with some super thick leggings, an over-sized jumper, leather jacket and a faux fur stole. I had my classic top knot hair do with natural makeup, lightly bronzed cheeks and nude lips.

Cosy Kid

I’m a massive fan of scarves, snoods and fur stoles and until this year  i have considered these my must have accessory. Although this winter i have been tempted by hats, not only does it do wonders for a bad hair day but keeps your head and ears nice and toastie too. Adding a hat to your outfit is so effortlessly chic, it can transform your look in seconds. Here’s a few of my celebrity favourites…

The pictures below really capture how differently each celebrity wears a beanie hat, they look  totally different from each other yet still fabulous in their own way. I love how cute Blake Lively looks in her orange knitted hat however, also love Rihannas casual look in her bobble hat and Ray-bans. Which one is your favourite?

The high streeWarehouse (1)t is filled with some lovely woolen beanie hats ranging from Warehouse (2)£4.00-£18.00.  These two are from Warehouse, both at £18.00 (the one on the left is now reduced to £13.00!) *Bargain Buy*

Or alternatively you can customize a simple beanie hat you already have with some brightly coloured jewels, this would certainly brighten up any dull winters day! :)

Bridget Jones Style

After having an uber productive day, i decided to spend my evening on the sofa with the ultimate British chick flick, Bridget Jones’ Diary. I cannot watch this movie enough especially as it’s so close to Christmas!In fact one of the first scenes with Colin Firth and his reindeer jumpers inspired me to write this post…

For me, Christmas day is all about the Christmas jumper. Lets be honest the majority of us will either be hungover or ready to spend the day eating and drinking – or both! Comfort is key.

Simple leggings and a festive jumper is all you need for that extra ‘give’ around the waist line. (Diet will continue after New Years). This year i have gone for an urban outfitters Disney jumper. I’m not going to lie, I LOVE IT. I see myself potentially wearing it all year round. I was in the store for a good hour trawling through their piles of Christmas themed jumpers! For those of you who are yet to buy yours, check out Urban Outfitters, the prices vary but on average you’re looking at £30.00.

Primark have a great collection of knitted statement jumpers for £12.oo and i’ve spotted some cute ones from ASOS too. I’ve picked photos of some of my favourites…
