Thigh highs

I am in love with silk/satin wrap dresses at the moment, especially paired with thigh high boots.

Now I don’t know about you guys, but I have had a bit of an obsession with thigh high boots this past couple of years.

It started with my absolute loves – The Stuart Weitzman black suede lowland boots. Not cheap at £695 from Harrods, but a staple piece of my wardrobe that’s here to stay and I know I will be wearing every winter without fail.

I would have loved to get the same pair but the highland versions, but certainly wasn’t willing to spend that money so instead set about looking for my fav – an affordable version.

Not only was it about searching for the perfect pair, it was also about finding a pair that fitted my legs! Now I’m not complaining about having slim legs, but honestly I must have ordered about 10 pairs from different brands and had to return all of them because they were like a saggy bit of material hanging off my legs – not attractive!

It appears that the average calf circumference on high boots sold is 14 inches, for girls with slim legs you will need a 10/11inch circumference for them to be super tight. The Stuart Weitzman boots fit me well, they have a tie at the top to tighten accordingly to your size.

I found a great pair from ASOS as pictured below for only £60!

I was also after a leather pointy pair and ended up finding them online from a random boutique that I unfortunately can’t remember the name of. I still had to have them altered to fit my legs as they were still too big(thanks to my mum!).

Get the look – Stripe Delight

As my blog is focused on ‘Affordable Style’, I thought it would be fitting to start doing a ‘get the look’ post – an affordable version of some of my favourite designer outfits I have seen styled on celebs.

I loved this look on Kendall Jenner – my version is head to toe Missguided. Total outfit cost was under £50.

I chose these colourful striped trousers rather than a black and white pin stripe version as I thought the colours complimented my skin tone more.

For a similar pair to Kendall’s check these out: Asos

In the Nude

In the Nude is this week’s theme for outfit inspo.

I have never been a big fan of bold colours, 99.9% of the time you will see me in nude, white, grey or black. Heavy emphasis on the black….

I am dressed head to toe in Missguided here! I can’t praise this brand enough – they have new stock in each week and are completely up to date with trends at such a great affordable price.

The Bomber edition

 

As you may have seen, Bomber jackets are absolutely everywhere at the moment. They are a great addition to your wardrobe and are definitely one of those ‘what did I wear before I had this’ pieces. I love this suede one from Missguided, it looks super cute on and goes perfectly with jeans or leather pants for a casual look.

I also love the satin bombers I have seen around… that is next on my shopping list!
