I love a fugly shoe. I’m talking obnoxious colours. A shit-tonne of tassels. Fringing, everywhere. And embellishments that are so heavy, it’s an effort to lift your foot. The good news is there are a whole heap that tick those boxes for summer and I’ve done you the favour of rounding them all up in one easy shopping list. You can thank me later.
Ankle boot season is here and this fills me with more joy than it probably should. I adore Autumn. The crisp, sunny mornings. Orange leaves. Hot chocolate. Coat weather. Being able to wear all my boots again. Wahoo!
I’m cold. I’m typing this post as I get shipped off and on delayed trains, trying to make my way to the end of the line. I’m wearing my Burberry trench and my purple animal print scarf which I’ve had forever but I think it’s time for an upgrade.
I’ve hunted down the best pom pom covered accessories on the high street to give the pom pom obsessed lady this Christmas. You really are very welcome.
I have a thing for a shaggy cardi. I currently have two which I flit between. One is a fitted Warehouse number that’s covered in fringing, the other is massive with oversized looped tassels and a ton of added va-va-voom in the volume department. But that doesn’t mean that I’m not in the market for more. Oh no…

Say hello to these sparkly little bad boys.
I have my gorgeous cousin to blame for these. You see, she found them on Ebay, instantly thought of me and bid on them. And they’re now all mine.
They’re so sparkly it’s almost ridiculous. Luckily, that just so happens to be the way I like my shoes. The more garish and ridiculous, the better in my books.
These tick all my boxes and more. They have an amazing chunky banana heel, shimmer constantly and are guaranteed to brighten my day. I should just point out that comfort-wise, they weren’t built for stomping around London. But hell, they sure look pretty.
So far I’ve paired them with my new oxblood midi skirt and with shorts and tights, I reckon they’ll go with anything. I’m in love.
In case you haven’t noticed, duster jackets are kind of having a ‘moment’. Especially if you happen to be a fashion blogger.
While I haven’t yet fallen victim, with prints like these, I fear it’s only a matter of time.
This Aztec Print Duster from River Island is everything I want it to be.
It has this crazy-incredible Aztec print in tribal-like colours, it’s a relaxed fit and can be throw on as a light summer cover up.
I feel like I’ve just talked myself into buying this. Uh oh. That only means trouble.
I LOVE animal print. You could even go as far as saying I’m obsessed. Animal-print shoes, bags, tops, dresses, you name it, I’ve got it baby.
I haven’t worn this particular skirt in a while so I figured I’d bust it out for the day.
Every time I pull this skirt on I’m reminded just how much I like it. It instantly makes me smile. The a-line cut is super flattering, it has a crazy python print and is pretty much multicoloured goodness. What more could you want in a skirt?
For me, absolutely nothing.
What I’m Wearing:
Skirt, Lavish Alice from ASOS
Necklace, Love Moi
Boots, River Island
Watch, Michael Kors
