There are many ways to a girls heart, shoes being one of them. For me, boots in particular. It’s turned into a running joke the amount of boots I own – I joke about it because it’s a problem that I probably need to address, but refuse to. I mean once your boot collection starts spilling out from your wardrobe, surely thats a sign? One I’m going to continue to ignore though!
We are well into winter now, Christmas decs are up in all the shops, everyone is already starting to buy enough food to feed an army, and along with this of course comes the colder weather. Which, I’m not overly pleased with, but it does mean everywhere starts to get in their winter boots – there isn’t much I like about winter, apart from this.
Everywhere I look at the moment has such a fab selection of boots; that almost every time I head out shopping I full on have to drag myself away from picking up a new pair. My budget doesn’t cover the eccentric boot addiction I have. I’ve here compiled a list of my favourites I’ve come across so far, I say so far because we are still in November and I’m sure this list will continue to grow!
I feel like River Island crop up in a solid 90% of my blog posts, but their boot selection always gets a 10/10 from me, so the first few pairs are from RI, but I’m sure that won’t be a surprise to many of you!
Okay, so I’m not sure about all of you, but I’m still not over the whole leopard print trend that has taken the fashion scene by storm this year. I mentioned in a previous blog post that my leopard obsession was getting a bit out of hand, so when I saw these leopard print boots, I fell in love! This might sound really stupid, but I hope I’m not the only one that is really fussy when it comes to leopard print – if I say it has to be a certain size and placement, please someone tell me you know what I mean?! Or is it just a fashion student thing? Anyway, these are dreamy af.
This next pair are actually a pair that I’ve asked Santa (the bank of Mum & Dad) for, as a Christmas present this year. A couple of years a go, Office did a range of boots dedicated to David Bowie, alongside a wonderful silver pair, they also had a white pair of boots, ever since seeing these, white boots have been something of a need for me! But it has taken me ages to find a pair that compare to the Bowie ones, low and behold, River Island have just the pair for me!
I promise this is the last pair from RI, but these are perfect for the party season. Every shop you walk into recently, glittery dresses, bags, and jumpers are shoved in your face. Everywhere you turn in the shop, its glistening. So of course shoes, are of no exception. This sparkly pair, are much like the leopard print pair in terms of silhouette, perfect heel too – not too high, so you’ll be able to last the entirety of your Christmas party without having to later pay the price of not feeling your feet!
I love boots that have a bit of a quirky touch to them, so when I was recently wandering through Highcross and saw these gorgeous wine coloured boots in the window of Office, I was instantly drawn to the slightly different heel they had, unlike most boots I had seen – it makes such a difference to the boot having a much more square heel.
Anyone who knows me well, will know that I am a magpie when it comes to anything red – take me shopping and I’ll instantly head towards anything thats red. So it’ll come of no shock to you all that a red pair of boots are featured on here, would be rude not to really! I’m also loving this patent look that they have going on, so much easier to look after and maintain compared to suede!
Moving onto a pair of boots that are slightly more pricer, but a pair that I think are definitely worth the price. Now, when the whole ‘sock boot’ trend came into fashion last year, I hated it. I thought they looked awful, which is why when I saw these I was so surprised I liked them. I’ve always been a fan of Tommy Hilfiger’s work, and these instantly caught my eye – such a lovely colour as well, perfect for autumn!
Well it wouldn’t really be completed if I didn’t include a pair of Doc Martens somewhere in here! I’m a self confessed Doc Martens whore, my bank account might suggest differently though. However, these have been on my wishlist for the longest time now, and I do think I will treat myself to them some point within the next year, I’m just waiting for the right time. My favourite band ever is Joy Division, their music will always be one that I weirdly resonate with in some odd way – it’s not often I feel a connection with music, but Joy Division, I do. So you can probably guess that when Doc Martens came out with this collaboration, I was all over it!
I’m loving writing these posts at the moment, although it is making me want to shop and lets face it, with it being this close to Christmas, that just isn’t going to happen!
Where’s your go to place for boots?!
All my love,
