OTK Boots + Sea NY

Dress: Sea NY PF14 Similar Here | Jacket: Karen Millen New Season Here | OTK Boots: Russell & Bromley Similar Here | Clutch: Karen Millen 

Ciao bellissimas! Can we talk about these boots?! Stuart Weitzman at Russell & Bromley over the knee deliciousness to be specific. These babes are so popular, apparently they're like gold dust, and sell out almost every time they're re-stocked. Get them on your Christmas list now, and pray that Santa gets there in time. 

Over the knee boots are definitely an item which have gained popularity over the past few seasons. The designs have developed and OTK boots are now easier to style than ever. 

Here are three of my favourite ways to do so: 

1: Cape + Knee Length Dress  (like I'm wearing) + OTK boots

2: Skinny jeans + oversized knitwear + OTK boots 

3: Cocktail dress + shoulder-robed jacket + OTK boots 

Oh and I've got to tell you about SEA - a brand which is new to me - but one which I KNOW you'll love to. New York based SEA is one of those brands which makes you want everything on first look. Feminine, just the right amount of edgy, and pieces which feel both timeless and unique. Love, love love. I recently attended the SEA SS15 press day, and I can't even tell you how much better it gets next season. Almost all of the girls in the PR office were wearing the brand (they look after many other designers too) and they all looked ace. Like 'I really need to stop that girl and ask where she got that from' ace. I've got my sights set on this perfect trans-seasonal jersey. The price point of SEA hits mid-high, but I can absolutely attest to the quality, and know that the pieces are ones you'd wear for years!
How do you guys feel about over the knee boots? Do you have a pair already, or are you considering the investment this year?! 

In unrelated news: I'm going pumpkin carving tonight! So. excited. 

Have an awesome day all!

Classic Sunglasses | The Investment

Image Via 

Heyyy mid-week! Ols and I are headed to NYC at the beginning of November and I am BESIDES myself with excitement. In NYC I am going with shopping in mind. And specifically I am shopping for sunglasses. I have browsed the sunglasses halls of Liberty and Selfridges in London for months - trying on, taking off, all without the commitment. But peeps, I'm READY. And NYC is where it's at. 

I am on the hunt for a classic pair, most likely in black, tortoiseshell or a dark hue - perhaps khaki?! Celine, and Karen Walker do the blog rounds - and they look ace - so are definitely on the short list, but I love Stella McCartney for a great cats eye too. 

I've rounded up some of the sunglasses taking my fancy right now and would LOVE your take on which ones have your heart beating faster . . .

Quality sunglasses - like handbags, shoes and haircuts - complete an outfit. I am SUPER excited. 

Have you guys found your perfect pair of sunglasses? Are there any designer frames you would recommend above others? I need help on this one guys! All opinions so very very appreciated. 

Have an awesome day all!

Embracing The Chill | Havaianas Rain Boots

Wellingtons: Havaianas Helios Mid Height in Aubergine | Blanket Scarf: Accessorize | Jeans: Levi's | Jumper: Old but Similar | Shirt (Worn Underneath) Levi's | Watch: Caravelle 

Wrapping up for the Autumnal chill is something I feel we all harbour a not so secret love for. I mean, how many of you are waiting on the cinnamon version of everything to hit the coffee shops?! Say it's not just me . . . ?! Equally, that moment when we can open the jumper drawer, grab a scarf, and if - like me - you're going to go leaf-kicking - you'll be pulling on your wellington boots too. Havaianas - most famously known for their flip flops - have branched out into rain boots. And YAY for that. I gave the Helios mid rain boot in aubergine (delicious colour) a whirl on a recent fruit tasting trip to Blackmore Farm. I love that the length is shorter than most boots (although they do come in full length too) as I was looking for a wellington which I could wear on days in the city, as well as in the countryside. 
nature's finest!

Read on for my favourite way to style my wellington boots . . .

Reading Nook

Ciao bellissimas! I hope you all had an ace weekend, and are looking forward to kicking ass this week! I am totally starting this one with that kind of attitude! The past few weeks I have found it tricky to lock in desk time - time for posting and e-mails, in amongst face to face commitments. It's been kinda stressful. How to manage time, delegate tasks, maximise every hour . . . ! Phew, I feel like I'm figuring things out daily - if not hourly - and time management is one of my greatest challenges. To try and help me along I've been flicking back over my work from home posts! If you have any tips on staying on track at work, with productiveness, time divisions, scheduling . . . I am all ears! And I'll let you guys know how I get on too. 

OK back to nooks . . . 
As you may recall, Habitat recently came to shoot mine and Oli's new apartment. It was so lovely getting a different perspective on a space we are still getting to know ourselves. We have been quite hesitant in filling our rooms up with furniture, as 1) We have a major fear of cluttering, and 2) we are trying to invest in pieces we will love for a long time. What we've come to realise though is that some spaces do need more. I've harboured a fantasy of creating a little reading nook since we moved in, and now it looks like that fantasy may be becoming a reality! We have our eyes on one of those swoopy floor lamps, and I can't wait to select the perfect chair to curl up in. Naturally Pinterest has been a GREAT aid.
