Today was PAYDAY for a lot people and if you lack the self control that I clearly also lack you would have been shopping already! I'd been eyeing up the Acne 'Pistol' boots for a while and thought that it'd be a great investment piece but my more sensible friend Sara directed me towards these beauties instead...

Harness x3

I've been in love with these boots for absolutely AGES and I know they're really old now but I just can't help but still adore them. Since spying the Balenciaga 'Harness' boots on the Olsen twins, my eternal love affair with boots was reinforced. They inspired a cult following and everyone wanted a pair...but at £1,795 I wasn't counting on bagging a pair. Fast forward a few years and you'll remember the 'Zoe' bootie by Sam Edelman and at around £120, the frenzy that followed is understandable. Another imitation option for all those die-hard bargain hunters out there is the lovely harness boots from an eBay seller and at £25 I'm tempted to buy more than one pair!

Al Cine!

asymmetric stripe top - forever 21, jeans - miss selfridge, wedge boots - KG, fringe bag - h&m

This weekend I went to see the new Twilight film 'Breaking Dawn' with a couple of friends and, wanting to break away from my skinny jeans I decided to try my flares for the first time since buying them...2 months ago! We were a bit pressed for time to get some proper pictures done to show the full 'flare' on the jeans so they don't really look like much in these photos. They're so comfy and make my legs look longer than they actually are! I'm definitely going to invest in a couple more pairs with a bigger flare to make more of an impact!

Glitter is everywhere at the moment and unless you've been living in the desert somewhere, Miu Miu have the most amazing collection of sparkly shoes! If, like me, your eyes are far too big for your bank balance then you'll hopefully be excited that the high street has jumped on the sparkle-encrusted bandwagon and provided us with some inspired pieces!

If you want to be a bit more subtle but still want to incorporate glitter into your look, why not try these beauties from Models Own?

Don't you just love this 2011 summer campaign for Mink Pink?! Initially I was confused about why they released their summer campaign for this year in November, then my slightly less ditzy friend reminded me that it is in fact summer in Australia right now. The colours in these shots really pop out and give me that buzz you get when summer's coming! Unfortunately for me, I am in Scotland so summer is but a distant memory. Anyways, i'm off to meet my friend NT in town for some gossip and of course some shopping!

Added these gorgeous boots to my shoe collection a couple of days ago and I can only describe these shoes as unbelievably comfortable. I have what can only be described as a 'ridiculous' obsession with shoes because I feel they can make or break an outfit. These boots were an absolute steal at £25 from Internacionale so you can understand my initial fear turned into excitement when I took a chance and went inside the store. I wasn't sure if I would find something that I liked and to my surprise I did!

Just In

This isn't going to be a very interesting post but I haven't posted anything for a couple of weeks because i've been so busy with my new job recently. But there's always something i'm never too busy to do - SHOP! I'm supposed to be reigning in my spending but my new job isn't helping me with temptation. Here are the latest additions to my wardrobe:

Silver PU Oversized Clutch Bag - Zara

Not sure if the next one counts because my mum actually bought it for me recently but i love them so much it just had to be included...

Tan Leather Boots - FCUK

I've been having a particular obsession with hats recently and slowly but surely I will have a collection worthy of a year's free supply of goodies at Lock & Co. So far, i've collected a grand total of THREE (haha) hats. New Look, H&M, Vero Moda and ASOS have a fabulous and most importantly - an affordable - selection of fedoras and wide-brimmed hats. If you want to spend a bit more then I recommend Catarzi who have an exclusive collection at ASOS at the moment, and Helene Berman.

They look brilliant regardless of the length of your hair and always add an edge to your outfit - and remember, don't be afraid to experiment when it comes to accessories!
