Oh dear it’s really felt like summer is officially over this week. Perhaps it’s the abundance of coats, boots and hats in shop windows, or maybe it’s the fact that the days seem shorter no matter how well planned you are (how does that always happen!?), but I’m slowly accepting the fact that it might be time to focus less on bikinis and more on things that actually serve two purposes : to keep you snug and at least remotely stylish at the same time.

As I’m a bit of a shoe person (still in denial), I worked myself from the bottom up. These babies tick every perfect boot criteria. They’re comfortable, fun and practical (though some may disagree on that last point) and they’re black, which means I’ve instantly eliminated all mis-matching dilemma in the early mornings. Winning.

And for goodness sake, make sure you get yourself a good coat. Long is the way to go this Winter, and if you dare – a dusty pink would totally work. I’ve always been a little shy so I tend to play it safe, but what I wouldn’t do to have the guts to prance around in something like thisOne day.
