New Boots

Tuesday, 18 October 2011

With winter well on its way, I've accumulated a few new pairs of boots to keep me set up for the cold coming months. For some reason, I've never really been that much of a boot person. I'm not entirely sure why; I've always envied the girls who stomp around happily in their high-heeled boots, but they just never seemed right for me. This year, however, I've been falling in love with them. There seems to be a huge amount of beautiful boots out there at the minute, particularly from places like Topshop and New Look. The first pair, I spied in New Look a few weeks ago, fell in love and then decided I'd never wear them. A few weeks later, they reduce them to £19.99, slap 20% off student discount on top and I cannot resist. These boots are simply stunning; anything leopard print has my seal of approval, and add to that the chunky heel and faux suede material and you can't go wrong. I wore them last weekend when I went out for a meal and felt amazing in them. Can't really complain for £15.99!

The second pair have been doing the rounds on a lot of blogs lately, mainly because they are basically a cheaper alternative to the infamous Topshop Allegra boots. I saw them on Asos a few weeks ago, after they'd originally been on the River Island website (and consequently sold out) and couldn't risk them selling out again. They were £40 and aren't real leather, which is great for me as I don't wear leather! The heel is a great size, they are so comfortable and I think they go with almost any outfit. I wasn't sure at first, but I can definitely see me getting a lot of wear out of these this winter.

Finally, the last pair were a cheeky purchase in the Dorothy Perkins sale. I've been looking for a pair of floral boots like these for absolutely ages; I know Topshop did some a while back, which I absolutely adored, but they were made of real leather and so I refused to buy them. Along comes Dorothy Perkins and answers my prayers with a beautiful faux-leather pair that were a measly £15 in the sale. They are so 'me' and I'm so pleased I got them. They also do a different version with red and gold leaves on, which I also think will be great for the coming months! 

Have you been investing in lots of winter boots this season? What do you think to mine?
