My Favourite Winter Boots



This year, one thing that I want to start doing more of here on my blog is speaking about fashion. I love fashion so much and it is a huge part of my life, I would say probably even more so than makeup is. I just didn’t know if I should really mention it here on my blog because people seem to really enjoy the beauty side of things. But, I want this blog to be a place that represents me, which is why I am going to talk about fashion just a touch more. Anyway, for my first fashion post of 2019, I thought that I would share with you, some of my favourite boots that I have been living over the past few winter months!
I thought that I would kick things off with boots, because from September onwards, I literally don’t wear anything other than boots. I am the coldest person in the world at the best of times, so when it is actually cold outside, I have to wrap up warm and that starts with my choice of footwear. In this post, I am only going to mention my high-street boots, and then I think in another post I will do some of my high-end boots that I have in my collection. Lots of the boots that I am going to mention in this post are from high-street stores and were all under £100 when I bought them, which I think is really good value for good quality shoes!




The Statement Boots
I thought that for this blog post, I would start with a pair of statement boots. In my day to day life, I find that most of the shoes that I wear can be quite basic, I tend to stick to blacks and neutral shades. But, there are so many pairs of boots out there at the moment that are a bit more of a statement that I love to reach for. Whether it be a pair of embroidered ankle boots, with pearl studs or even a bright and bold colour. I think with how much is out there at the minute we should all invest in a good pair of statement boots. Not to mention that they can just add a little bit of something extra to an otherwise quite standard outfit.



The Everyday Boots
For an everyday basis when I am just heading to work or running errands, I tend to stick to the same pair of boots. For me, it is just a pair of black suede boots that I picked up from Topshop and I love them. They do have a block heel on them, but I appreciate the additional height because I am quite short. I love having a classic and comfortable pair of boots that I can reach for. I know that they will go with pretty much every outfit and they look really pretty. They aren’t anything garish, so they aren’t going to take away from my outfit, they just tie everything together really well.



Easy Walking Boots
No boot collection post would be complete without mentioning a pair of boots that are good for walking in. If I am going out for the day with the girls and we are having cocktails and having a walk around shopping, I need to have a nice pair of boots that I can reach for and know that I am ok walking in them. For me it is a pair of boots that I picked up from Missguided and the quality of them is amazing. To find a good pair of boots that you are ok walking long distances in, I would highly recommend going into a store and trying some different styles on and seeing what works for you. My only criteria are that they have some kind of ankle support.



The Edgy Boots
I am a huge fan of masculine style and I have to have a pair of boots in my collection that has a rock chick kind of vibe to them. I love to wear biker and edgy kind of boots when I am wearing a really girly outfit, just to balance it out a little bit and make it a little more me. Not to mention that most boots of this style are fully waterproof and super comfortable to wear all day long. I can tell that I am going to get more than my money's worth out of my biker boots when I go to Paris in March. My favourite way to wear these is with a girly tea dress, tights and my shearling aviator jacket!



The Comfortable Boots
I wanted a pair of black suede pixie style ankle boots for an everyday basis for such a long time. I have a lot of black boots sitting on my shoe shelves, but most of them have heels due to me being a short arse, so I wanted a flat pair that I can wear when I am just out and about. I picked up a pair from the ASOS website and I am in love with them. I think that short pixie style ankle boots look so nice when they are paired with a nice mini skirt and a pair of thick black tights. When I do opt for boots like these they have a to have a pointed toe to give them a little more about them.




The Colourful Boots
As I am sure most of you will already know, I live in the colour black, so I thought that I would inject a little colour into my life with a pair of brightly coloured boots. For me, it was a stunning pair of red suede boots and I thought that they would be the perfect pair of statement pair of boots to see me through the winter. To me, these boots just seem bring my many all black outfits to live and give them a little bit of an edge. I feel like red really is the colour of the moment and I don’t think that you could go wrong with treating yourself to a pair of red boots at the moment. I have my eye on a pair of red thigh-high babies that are so stunning!



The Sexy Boots
When I looked at my vast collection of boots, I felt like there was something missing and that was a pair of sexy boots. I wanted a pair of boots that I can throw on with any outfit and for them to not only look really nice, but elongate my legs and be nice and comfortable for me to walk in. For me, it was a pair of calf high leather boots with a really tall heel and a pointed toe that was the winner for me.  I had an image in my head of wearing these boots with my thigh skimming leather skirt and a nice black cashmere jumper. I love how these boots look whenever I pop them on, they just seem to complete my outfit. Perfect for the cooler months when you want to be covered, but look sexy at the same time!
There you have it. I know that this was something a little different for this post, but I really enjoyed putting it together for you. I also love getting to play with my shoes. I think in the next couple of weeks I will do this with my designer items, so make sure to keep your eyes out for that post. I don’t imagine that the items I have mentioned will still be in stock, but I will leave some links down below to some alternatives that I love!

  9. I am such a sucker for a cute pair of boots! I managed to get a new pair of grey suede ones on Boxing Day & also ordered a pair from the US (Steve Madden). A bit of a splurge but so worth it!
