Boots, Oriental Florals and Leather

It’s Everybody Everywhere for November! The theme this month is boots which I think should be an easy one for most of us. For northern hemisphere bloggers at least, outfit posts featuring boots are pretty commonplace at the moment – I love wearing mine more frequently come the colder months.

I’d been planning to wear my new leather skirt this last weekend for my great nephew’s first birthday party; partly due to them being black my slouchy boots seemed appropriate, but mostly because they may be the comfiest, warmest boots I have ever worn – the platform sole retains all the heat, and in my office that’s a godsend. So they’ve hardly left my feet all week at work, and then I wear them at the weekend to a birthday party as well. I have to start wearing some other footwear…!

Oh and because he’s so adorable, I had to post a picture of one year old Alfie from my niece’s Instagram feed – he’s a lot bigger and cuter (or rather, more entertaining) than when I featured a photo of me holding him a year ago in this post! Still can’t believe I’m a great aunt πŸ˜‰

P.S. The double rainbow that came out while we were shooting was too spectacular not to share!

Blouse: Debenhams*, Skirt: Rocha John Rocha at Debenhams*, Boots: Dune at Debenhams* (they’re actually on sale for £55 at the moment, contrary to what the link says), Rings: ASOS*, Watch: ASOS, Nails: Models Own Red ‘n’ Black

Shop my look! All marked* are the actual items (so that’s all except the nail polish!):

      Oh bless you, Miriam – thank you so much!!!! I do feel like I should do more knitting and have a cat or ten as I'm a great aunt – I'm letting the side down ;)))

    Stopping by from EWEB. The whole outfit is great, as is the double rainbow, but I really love the funky ring.

    Those boots are seriously awesome. They look like something a kickass CIA spy would wear in a TV show πŸ™‚

    And that rainbow photo is gorgeous!

    • 17 November 2012 / 1:30 pm

      Oh I love that analogy, Stacey!!! I'll definitely feel a little more kickass in them now, haha :))))

    you look awesome – love this top!

  8. 14 November 2012 / 2:32 am

    I love the color combinations in this outfit – especially the blouse and the way your rings pop against your nail polish color. Very chic! Found you via EBEW ( Cheers! πŸ˜€

    I am a huge boot fan but because of living in the tropics it's only sensible to wear them for about a week in the year – when the mercury dips below 20 degrees! Maybe I'll save them for a cold climate! Love this outfit though – very versatile.

  10. 13 November 2012 / 11:00 pm

    Fabulous outfit. I'm very inspired by it!

  11. 13 November 2012 / 5:36 pm

    Thanks for sharing the double rainbow! It is indeed lovely.
    I love your bright blue blouse and those boots are amazing. They look like they would be comfy even with the heel. πŸ˜‰

  12. 13 November 2012 / 3:49 pm

    wait where is that skirt from??? It is so beyond fabulous!

    1st your nephew is adorable! The outfit looks great. I love the print on your blouse and you did an amazing shop of styling that skirt – I think the leather would intimidate me.

  31. 12 November 2012 / 2:55 pm

    I particularly love that blouse each of the ways you've styled it, and what a great skirt! Glorious sky photo, xoxo
