Hi everyone and a lovely Monday to you! My week has been super busy at uni with workdays stretching from 9 am to 11 pm in the labs…I thought I would never see the day when I’d stay this long! I hope that your week has been less hectic.

The Quest for the Perfect Boots

If you follow me on Instagram you may know that I have been on the look out for VERY skinny fitting over the knee boots this entire season for my chicken legs. I’ve finally found them at a decent price of £39. The company I’ve bought them from originally contacted me to do a collaboration featuring one of their items, but they had such nice pieces online that I actually left the website with £100 less than I came with 🙈 The sponsored product is not even featured in this post, but it will be up soon!

With London Fashion Week (LFW) approaching this weekend, I also wanted to buy someting extra trendy and opted for this dress with exaggerated bell sleeves. (Despite it being beautiful, it comes with the danger of knocking over items and dipping your top into your edibles – buy with caution!) The two trends compliment each other perfectly in my opinion. Flared sleeves are definitely a bold statement and the “oomph” factors of any outfit. Simple, tight fitting boots on the other hand are a classic – they add an elegant touch  and let the sleeves do the talking.

Which of the two trends do you prefer and are you going to LFW? I’m going to pick up a few outfits tomorrow from Trace and then start to organise my weekend – it will be hectic! My friend Marinka is flying over and we have about twenty shows lined up for three days which sounds insane! I will not promise anything but I was thinking of vlogging the experience, what do you think? x
