When I first saw these Topshop Harp Booties Metal Heel in Nude on the website a few weeks ago, I completely fell in love with them and knew they would make a great addition to my shoe collection. Nude shoes and boots are something that I don’t have enough of, especially boots, so when I saw these had a gold stripe down the heel too, I was even more sold! They had actually gone out of stock online in my size, so Adam tracked them down at his local Topshop and managed to pick them up for me, which was really kind of him!
I did originally try size 39 in these (UK 6) but I couldn’t get the zip done up, so they definitely run a little on the smaller side since I needed to size up to a 40 (UK7) which fits perfectly. The heel height is just over 4 inches I would say, so they are pretty steep and there’s no platform, so if you plan on wearing these quite often, you would definitely need to be an experienced heel wearer or I think they will end up giving you cramp or pains after a little while. That aside though, these look absolutely stunning with light blue skinny jeans tucked in! I’ve worn them twice now and I am obsessed with them! For a nude boot, these are definitely worth buying, regardless if you are a fashion blogger or not!
Grey skinny jeans, a cropped top and a longline sleeveless jacket…
I titled this post around 50 Shades of Grey, not only because I’m excited to watch the movie very soon after reading the books, but also because I have become slightly addicted to grey lately, much to Adam’s delight! Ha ha. I’ve actually ended up buying a few various pieces in different shades of grey and I love them. I find grey to be so versatile, it’s like an alternative to black which is less harsh on my paler skin tone, so you can expect to be seeing more grey in my outfit posts.
One of my favourite grey pieces I own right now are these Citizens of Humanity Rocket skinny jeans in London Calling. I adore these jeans as the Rocket is my favourite cut (similar here) and the grey distressed wash is gorgeous! You can read my review on these jeans over at The Jeans Blog. I paired my jeans with a Topshop Cropped Grey Top and then layered over my Topshop Longline Sleeveless Ponte Jacket in Grey. I bought this jacket in the Oxford Circus flagship store when I was in London in December and I can’t get enough of it, I even own it in navy too! It does run big though so I sized down to a 4 for a slimmer fit. I finished my look off with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 in Black, a Topshop Aztec Necklace, some different pearl bracelets and finally, a subtle pink lip as red was too bold for the style.
It was really cold shooting these photos on the weekend down by the farm in the country lanes, it actually got really windy at one point and like some of you asked on my Instagram, I did have a coat with me, so I wasn’t always dressed like this! I’m not that crazy! I do like to keep warm and healthy, but the outfit looked much better without the coat for the photos and this is how I would have worn it if it wasn’t the middle of Winter. I hope you like the new look that I’m giving my blog with more professional looking photos, more sleeker outfits and I’m still working on the new blog layout, which will be soon! I’d love to know what you style bloggers and readers think of my outfit as always, reading your comments makes me smile!
I wore this outfit on Sunday and it’s one that I had been planning to wear for a while, but I was waiting for the right temperature. It’s either been too hot or too cold to wear this, but Sunday seemed to be just right. I will say though that it’s the first time I’ve actually started feeling Autumn in the air. There’s a brisk chill that has been making my nose turn that shade of pink which always lets me know the season has changed.
I got this dress from Topshop quite a few months ago when it was in the sale. It’s not something that I would usually choose to wear as I’m not always that comfortable in bodycon dresses, but when I saw the floral print and how vibrant it was, I just completely fell in love with it. It’s unfortunately sold out, but you can definitely buy similar floral dresses online at Shopbop. I quite like the way it’s gradient and transitions from a lighter set of colours down to darker tones. I decided to throw my white Zara blazer over my shoulders just to add some structure to the look and then opted for my Kelya nude heels that you recently saw in another outfit post. I was going to go with my black Pigalle, but the contrast was just too harsh.
Now for my accessories, I wore various gold bracelets, a gold cross necklace and a blue topaz ring, all from Topshop. I also chose my beetle brooch from the brand as I hadn’t worn this yet either, despite having it for months. I love the iridescent body that it has and I thought it went well with the floral print on the dress. For those interested in my make-up too, I’m wearing my usual Barbara Panagos foundation, my Benefit They’re Real mascara with 3D fiber lashes on top and my lipstick is a combination of Pixi brilliance balm in red and a deep red/purple gloss. You can see more on make-up routine here, but I wouldn’t say I’m as into make-up as a lot of other fashion bloggers are.
And on a final note, I’m getting my hair cut on Thursday (it’s definitely been ages and has become unmanageable) and I’m going shorter. I’m thinking of getting about 4 inches or so cut off and my fringe put back in on the side, but quite a lot shorter. I also want some blonde highlights, but I hate sitting for ages while I have those so I wont have them done yet. Don’t forget to enter my Somerset Toiletry Company giveaway though!

I just had to sing that since I’ve always loved that song! I haven’t done a new shoes post in a long while, I think since I got my Jimmy Choo’s back in April/May, so I thought it was about time that I did. Last weekend when I was in town doing some window shopping and having lunch with Adam, I came across these gorgeous slippers in Topshop. These are the Sandylion slippers in burgundy and they are amazing!
Usually cheaper flats really hurt my feet (which is a downfall for us fashion bloggers as there’s some gorgeous ones out there), but I tried these on anyway since I fell in love with them and was pleasantly surprised when they didn’t hurt my heels! They are made of a really soft suede like velvet fabric and are incredible comfortable! The gold lion head medallion on the front is also really eye catching. I’ve worn these three times already with black and indigo jeans and a pair of leather look leggings. They really do go with everything and I can guarantee these will be making more appearances on my blog soon! Buy them in the UK by clicking here and in the US by clicking here. They are only £24 which is an amazing price!
