A vintage coat and brand new boots....

Recently as it has got colder, I have found myself reaching for my beloved skinny jeans and I have been trying to find different coats to pair them with so that people don't realise that I am essentially wearing the same outfit ;) This coat was my vintage bargain buy from when Danni and I went to Vintage at Goodwood with Aussie and it has never really had much airtime on here despite me wearing it a lot. I love the fuchsia pink colour and the fact it is 100% wool definitely helps!

Coat:  vintage, top: NW3 at Hobbs, jeans: Kristens from Topshop, shoes: Betty London ankle boots c/o Spartoo, bag: vintage
This little beauty is the latest addition to my (ever growing) owl collection and was a wonderful birthday gift from my friend Matilda as part of an owl themed birthday present- isn't he gorgeous?! I just love his little pearl body and the length of the necklace is perfect...


Once again though, my love is reserved for my shoes. Since I bought these black ankle boots, I have been wearing them with everything. They are like the more wearable version of these and ridiculously comfy, I didn't even have to break them in...

That is a look of true love my friends. Sorry Mark, Bertope and I are now an item...
I think it might be love! They have the perfect size heel to give me a bit of a lift (avoiding the dreaded stumpy leg syndrome) and the black suede is gorgeous. Considering these have barely left my feet for a month and have been subjected to water, mud, grass and slippery leaves, it is also incredibly hard wearing. Definitely considering buying a back up pair of these...


P.S. This post was done in collaboration with Spartoo

Aaah, the owl shirt is amazing :). When I went to Goodwood revival, I found that most of the vintage comprised weird smelling fur coats - who was selling the beautiful wool ones! Nice find. xx

The boots are lovely, Maria. The heel is the perfect height! All my shoes are either flat or too high to walk in! :-(

Aw Maria don't show me more nice black ankle boots, I'll have no money left! These are so nice, and I really love them with your jeans and owl tee.

The coat is such a great colour. I love those boots. I'm all about the ankle boot with a little bit of a heel at the moment.
