Keeping Myself In Check


(Leggings – Similar, Boots – Exact, Bag – Similar, Cardigan – Exact, Watch – Exact, Top – Similar)

I know you have all been waiting to see how I styled my Carvela Kurt Geiger Tara Boots in Red Suede since I posted about them last week. Finally, here is the outfit! I wore this look when I was out and about in town last weekend. I’m sure you can tell that it was incredibly windy based on my hair in these photos, ha ha. It was literally flying all over the place! I decided to pair my Tara boots with my Warehouse Black Leggings as they are incredibly comfortable and made of thicker cotton to keep me warm. I decided to wear leggings over jeans purely because they fit slimmer at the ankles and fit better around the boots. To keep with the burgundy theme (naturally) I went with my Zara Linen Top and my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mab in Port. I think both of these pieces really tie the look together with the boots and they are all pretty similar shades.

I then threw on my Warehouse Dogtooth Lumberjack Cardigan as I wanted some more black and grey to break up the colour palette. I’ve become really fond of this cardigan as it’s so warm and comfortable! For my accessories, I went with my Michael Kors Slim Runway Watch in Silver and then that brings me to the bracelet! I got to choose this from the lovely ladies at Bibi Bijoux and I absolutely love it! I have worn it three times already as it’s actually incredibly comfortable and it just feels nice on the wrist. It closes with a strong magnet underneath and it’s such good quality, it’s definitely inspired me to want to buy more pieces from them! I love the bright blue colour it has on the friendship bracelet attached to it, it’s nice to add a little pop of something different every now and then. Have any of you ever tried Bibi Bijoux before?

On another note, a shopping note, Shopbop are having an exclusive 30% off pre sale right now for three days only! I think it’s amazing! I have already seen some pieces on there! Loads of jeans are in the sale too, it’s a great discount! Definitely check it out! And on a music related note, I don’t know if any of you have been watching Made in Chelsea? It’s one of my favourite reality TV shows and I love seeing London in all its glory like that, but I found out yesterday from the episode that Andy Jordan is a musician! I had no idea! He’s really talented too and I have fallen completely in love with his new song ‘Whole Lot Of Water’ which you can listen to by clicking here. I think it’s so good! Do you like it? And of course, what do you think of my outfit? As always, leave a comment and let me know!

    That cardigan looks really cozy, it’s making me want to buy one as well xD also because I love the print on it, anythin black, gray and white nowadays I want to buy xD

    The boots are really cute as well, are they also comfortable to wear?


    • November 8, 2013 / 8:30 pm

      Yeah the boots are comfortable, maybe a little hard on the feet at some points, but they are easy to walk in!
