These Boots Are Made For Walking


Ted & Muffy Snake Boots With Skinny Jeans & Layers

After spending the majority of yesterday in bed and getting behind again on blogging work, I’m finally starting to feel better. It’s taken a week and today is the first day that I’m feeling improvement. After I made my post about having the flu, I developed sinus issues and my face was so swollen and felt like it was exploding, it’s just been one thing after another, which has gotten me so down to the point of breaking down over the tiniest things. If I wasn’t better by today then I was headed to the doctors, but I’m just so thankful that I am on the mend. The pressure has gone down in my face and I’m much less achy, exhausted and sick, thank goodness. I really appreciate all of the well wishes you sent me though, it truly means so much to me to know how sweet you all are and how caring, so thank you.

Getting to this outfit, we shot it a few weeks ago when I’d just gotten the amazing Ted & Muffy Medusa Snake Print Boots which had been on my wish list for a while. The brand was super sweet and sent them to me to style and review (review coming soon) and I couldn’t wait to wear them out. I’ve never owned anything snake print before and while I wouldn’t wear real snakeskin, I love the print of it. These aren’t my usual style either since they are quite bold, but I think that’s why I love them. I decided to keep things neutral with my outfit and styled the Medusa boots with my J Brand Maria Jeans in Dove. I thought the grey complemented the beige tones in the boots rather nicely. I went with my River Island Roll Neck Jumper which I layered my Zara Sleeveless Coat over the top of to keep warm and give it more layers. I wore this jumper and coat combination before here, but I love it so much I wanted to do it again. I finally finished it all off with my Chloe Mini Drew in Motty Grey to blend in with the neutrals.

I have to say that I think this outfit is definitely my favourite of the new year 2016 so far! Not just because of the Ted & Muffy Medusa snake print boots, but because it combines most of my favourite things at the moment. Skinny jeans and statement boots, multiple layers of warmth and proportion play. I used to be so afraid of wearing heavy layers on top since I have a larger chest area, it can make me look a lot bigger than I am, but I realised that if you keep the leg area as slim as possible by either going bare or with super tight skinny jeans, then you add some height to them with heels or boots, it doesn’t make you look oversized at all because it keeps the proportions in check! My blogs 6th birthday is coming up on the 10th as well, so I have a very exciting post to share with you then. In the meantime, please do let me know what you think of this outfit! Comment below!

    Firstly I just have to say that I’m delighted to read that you’re back on the mend and I wish you swift progress with your recovery. 🙂

    Secondly – I’ve got that song going through my head again with these shots. 😀

    Anyhow, I think that this is such a great outfit combination. The jeans, especially, look absolutely perfect – I love them and you look wonderful in them.

    What has surprised me (since I first saw them on instagram) is how much I like your boots. I’m scared of snakes to quite a significant degree and mostly extends to anything that looks like remotely like snake. I just have a natural recoil (no pun intended) reaction to snakes. I appreciate that no real snakes are involved in your boots, of course, but they still ought to disturb me a bit. They don’t though. I think they look wonderful on you. I don’t think I would ever be able to bring myself to even touch, let alone wear, fake snakeprint but that’s not getting in the way of appreciating how well you’re doing it. 🙂

      Well that’s good that you like the outfit and the boots even though you have a fear of snakes! I’m pleased 😀

    Hi Lorna! I’m so glad to hear you’re on the mend. I hope you’re feeling better now and stay that way.

    These outfit photos are really lovely. I adore the snakeskin boots, they’re very sassy, and you’ve put together a really sophisticated look from head to toe. I’m sure the boots will be very wearable too, with all the neutral colour combinations you can put them in.

    Have a fab weekend and stay strong!

    Amazing skinny jeans, fab booties & perfect layers – you’re so right, hon – it makes one flawless outfit for the weather we’ve been having. So sorry to hear you were so unwell. Sinus infections are the worst, they really knock you down. I hope from now on you will feel much much better! <3
