Ankle boot season is here and this fills me with more joy than it probably should. I adore Autumn. The crisp, sunny mornings. Orange leaves. Hot chocolate. Coat weather. Being able to wear all my boots again. Wahoo!
I’m cold. I’m typing this post as I get shipped off and on delayed trains, trying to make my way to the end of the line. I’m wearing my Burberry trench and my purple animal print scarf which I’ve had forever but I think it’s time for an upgrade.
I’ve hunted down the best pom pom covered accessories on the high street to give the pom pom obsessed lady this Christmas. You really are very welcome.
I have a thing for a shaggy cardi. I currently have two which I flit between. One is a fitted Warehouse number that’s covered in fringing, the other is massive with oversized looped tassels and a ton of added va-va-voom in the volume department. But that doesn’t mean that I’m not in the market for more. Oh no…

Say hello to these sparkly little bad boys.
I have my gorgeous cousin to blame for these. You see, she found them on Ebay, instantly thought of me and bid on them. And they’re now all mine.
They’re so sparkly it’s almost ridiculous. Luckily, that just so happens to be the way I like my shoes. The more garish and ridiculous, the better in my books.
These tick all my boxes and more. They have an amazing chunky banana heel, shimmer constantly and are guaranteed to brighten my day. I should just point out that comfort-wise, they weren’t built for stomping around London. But hell, they sure look pretty.
So far I’ve paired them with my new oxblood midi skirt and with shorts and tights, I reckon they’ll go with anything. I’m in love.
In case you haven’t noticed, duster jackets are kind of having a ‘moment’. Especially if you happen to be a fashion blogger.
While I haven’t yet fallen victim, with prints like these, I fear it’s only a matter of time.
This Aztec Print Duster from River Island is everything I want it to be.
It has this crazy-incredible Aztec print in tribal-like colours, it’s a relaxed fit and can be throw on as a light summer cover up.
I feel like I’ve just talked myself into buying this. Uh oh. That only means trouble.
I LOVE animal print. You could even go as far as saying I’m obsessed. Animal-print shoes, bags, tops, dresses, you name it, I’ve got it baby.
I haven’t worn this particular skirt in a while so I figured I’d bust it out for the day.
Every time I pull this skirt on I’m reminded just how much I like it. It instantly makes me smile. The a-line cut is super flattering, it has a crazy python print and is pretty much multicoloured goodness. What more could you want in a skirt?
For me, absolutely nothing.
What I’m Wearing:
Skirt, Lavish Alice from ASOS
Necklace, Love Moi
Boots, River Island
Watch, Michael Kors
These four are my go-to sandals. The shoes that will adorn my feet on any date night, girls night, family night and evening venture outside the comfort of my own home.
They all have a time and a place to be worn.
Let me walk you through the line up.
Black Strappy Wedges – River Island
These are the sexiest of the bunch by far. There’s no platform, just thin straps of leather that crisscross up the foot to the ankle. They are just perfection. Plus, they’re super comfy which is always a win. These wedges are whipped out when I want to sex up a look and dance the night away.
Grey Suede Wooden Heeled Wedges – Dune
Meet my every day wedges. These suede beauties are perfect for work when I want to make a bit more of an effort and wear heels. Again, they’re comfortable so can be worn when running for the train without making me fall arse over tit. I love how the grey suede covers my whole foot, apart from the peep toe, with a simple strap around the ankle before joining the contrasting wooden wedge heel.
Dark Brown Cut Out Wedges – Kurt Geiger
These bad-boys have been in my collection for years. I am a massive lover of Kurt Geiger shoes and would not like to confess to how many pairs I actually own. They are my complete weakness in life. The platform, dark brown leather and cut outs give these stompy and heavy wedges a tough edge when paired with a girly summer dress, that I can’t get enough of.
Tan Buckle Wedges –
I guess these look the most summer appropriate. The light tan, the big buckles, the thick straps, you can see why I was drawn to these. These are maybe the most versatile because they can be chucked on with absolutely anything. Jeans and a tee, done. Cute summer dress, sorted. Maxi dress, why not.
So that’s my wedge obsession out in the open. What shoes do you collect en masse?
