The Grey Cape & Over The Knee Boots

(Cape – Exact & Similar, Jeans – Exact, Boots – Exact)

I have been thinking up an outfit ever since I got these gorgeous DUO boots a couple of weeks ago at the DUO Bloggers event in Bath. I  completely fell in love with them when I first saw them and I am so happy that I was able to have them. I’ve never owned any over the knee boots before and these are just perfect! So, for the outfit, I wanted something contrasting which is why I chose this Topshop Double Breasted Grey Cape. I had been wanting this cape coat ever since I saw it a couple of months ago in a Topshop fashion bloggers preview, finally it came in stock last week so I snapped it up in an XS instantly! I now have a cape that I absolutely adore!

I felt like the look needed some blue denim in it though, which is why I tucked these 7 For All Mankind The Ankle Skinny Jeans in Rue De Lille (similar here) into my beautiful DUO Dita Over The Knee Grey Suede Boots. You haven’t seen these jeans yet, but you will in detail soon. They have a raw hem and have been a pair that I’ve been living in and can’t be without. So this turned out to be an outfit that worked really well, in my opinion, and I would love to know what you think of it!

Getting to my make-up though, I decided to do it a little bit differently. I recently got this Illamasqua contouring and highlighting kit as well as a pretty lip gloss in Tantrum, and I think it’s fantastic. I’ve never really been into contouring before, but have always wanted to give it a go as it defines your cheek bones so much, and I can definitely say that it works. I think you can see in the photos just how good it is, plus the lip gloss is the most gorgeous shade of purple/pink with metallic undertones! But like I said above, comment and let me know what you think!

    So awesome! I actually hated the over-the-knee boot look for so long but now am kind of warming up to the tighter, more stocking-like ones…these are so cool looking on you and I love how they kind of blend in with the jeans! Great look 🙂

    Is it just the make-up and lighting fooling me; or have you lost some weight recently, Lorna ?
    Your cheekbones seem so marked; and your entire look has such an air of self-confident, almost aristocratic, elegance – the one of a cool lady of style. Your high-heeled legs are of course amazing, as usual. But now the true magic seems to come from your face and eyes. Intense and intriguing beauty !

      Thank you Karsten! It’s actually a combination of both, my make-up, lighting and a bit of growing up/losing weight. My cheeks are getting more defined as I get older, losing the baby face look I think! I will be doing a fitness post soon though, which you might like!

    I love the boots! Do they fit pretty snugly? It’s hard for me to find boots that aren’t too big around my legs.

      Yes, they do! DUO measure your calf and they have all different calf sizes in the same boot, so you can have them as tight or loose as you want. That’s my trouble too, I always have issues finding boots snug in my calves, but that’s why I love DUO!
