Granted, I only have a jacket on, and no scarf/gloves/hat, but there is definitely that chill in the air. Actually, I don’t mind it at all. I LOVE the Autumn. Maybe its because I was born in October, or perhaps it’s because for me it heralds the start of the renew phase of the year. Whatever it is, Autumn days, you know, those cold, crisp days, blue skies and full sun shining through the beautiful copper, rust, red and gold leaves (ok, I might be going a bit overboard here) are the best.
To mark the drop in temperature I am wearing my Rag & Bone Newbury boots. This is one of those classic styles that will never date, and previously have always been on a lust list due to their price tag. But the lovely Kat brought to my attention that Rag & Bone now have a store at
Bicester and these were in stock at a bargain. (I do love a visit to Bicester and take the chance whenever I’m at my parents as its just down the road).
These are the Black Suede version and I agonised over which to get… the leather or the suede. Suede won in the end as its actually that oily ‘brushed’ suede and the Sales Assistant swung it by saying they look better with tights. Cue… A whole host of other outfits visualised. I was so surprised too that they had all options in my size, and HALF sizes. I’d say these actually come up a bit big and my usual 40 was subbed for a perfect 39.5.
I love the very wearable heel, and the zip detail on the back (which is Rose Gold!). Dare I say the perfect black boot!
Today I’m wearing them with
Black skinny ankle grazer trousers – Zara
Grey spotted button back jumper – Boden (yes I know, everyone has this from the new season selection but I love it!)
Black Velvet Jacket (not in shot) – Vintage “St Michael” (M&S for those that don’t know
I have an Industry awards do to go to later (hence no make up now… does anyone else hate layering make up on top of make up when you can’t get ready properly as much as me?) where I’m presenting an award. YIKES! And the dress code is Vintage Chic (double YIKES!). Hopefully my dress choice will be appropriate. For those that follow me on Instagram, you’ll see how it turns out 😉
