Winter has started creeping in the last few days, with cooler mornings and the nights getting darker much quicker, so I thought it was the perfect time to pull out my boots! I am loving all the riding boot styles around this season (I have my eye on a gorgeous, classic pair at Mi Piaci that I'm planning to buy in a few weeks) but these tan babies are so comfortable and soft, I hope to be bringing them out for many Winters to come xxxx I love my Harem pants so much, and I love the way they puff out over my boots, it makes my outfit feel lovely and slouchy without feeling sloppy. And more stripes! My lovely friend Christina gifted me this gorgeous vintage scarf, so it had it's first outing today!
My baby all fresh from the groomer! (I love how they puff his ears, making his wee body look even smaller!!So cute!)

These boots are made with what feels like a lovely soft kid leather(it doesn't specify on the boots), and are lined with polar-fleece, so they are super cosy and very snuggly feeling. I love this shade of tan too, it's such a great neutral to wear when black gets a bit too much (not that that is very often!) The heels are a perfect height too, nice and thick so I can go dog walking in them without sinking into the mud. I felt like I needed a horse and paddock to wear them properly!! xxxxxxxxxx

I love men's tailoring, and why should they have all the fun!! I discovered this stripey (yep I'm mad about stripes!) Givenchy tie at an op shop a couple of weeks ago and thought I'd test it out with my favourite harem pants (so the outfit didn't look too corporate) and a classic white blouse and my beloved grey blazer. My new ballet flats, headband and pearl earrings added an ounce of femininity so I didn't feel too boyish. I had such fun wearing it and I think it will be one of those outfits I repeat and repeat!! Hope you like!! xxxxx Blazer: Portmans

Blouse: A gift from my grandmother (she has a great wardrobe at the fabulous age of 90)

Pants: Cotton On

Tie: Thrifted

Shoes: Mi Piaci

Bag: Guess

Headband: Diva

I was given the Coco Chanel move Coco Avant Chanel for my birthday, and it has reiterated to me how simplicity is always the key to a fabulous outfit. I particularly loved the way Coco wore beautiful simple outfits, such as her gorgeous twin-sets, and allowed herself room to play around with accessories (namely her famous multi-strands of fake pearls, despite the fact that she owned multitudes of real ones, so very chic!) without making the outfit fussy.
Coco, I salute thee :) xxxxxx
Shirt: Thrifted ( I love that it's a loose fit, as it's uber comfortable, and has that 'I stole my boyfriends shirt' feel to it. The stripes completely sold me on it!

Pants: Cotton On, these pants are so ridiculously comfortable, a couple of weeks after buying my first pair, I went back and bought 2 more!

Shoes: Mi Piaci, I love my ballet flats, they are super comfortable but always look neat and dressy.

Bag : My new Guess baby!

Pearls: Diva

Earrings: Diva

Headband: Diva: I love headbands, they are such a great way to add a spot of colour to an outfit without overdoing it. They are very practical too!!

Sunglasses: Sunglass Hut, They reminded me of Jackie O, whom I love!

Dog: My baby!! He ran into the shot just as the photo was being taken!!

Aren't the buckles pretty!!

My new baby! I love the gold tassel and chain details, and it has so much room inside, which I definitely need! And black is always such a versatile colour, which I need with a big handbag as I tend to use it everyday until it starts getting a little worse for wear! xxxx
