These boots are made for blogging











I'd been tempted with another pair of boots for a while now. Kendi keeps sporting a gorgous pair by Steve Madden. My boot cravings exacerbated by yet another of her booted outfits I clicked over to eBay the other day and was gobsmacked to find a listing for a pair my size ending within the hour. Defects (laughable ones) meant the price was worthy of childish screeching. While waiting to snipe the listing I was catching up on some blogs and found Tania of what would a nerd wear looking great in the same pair.

I hope I am not pissing these guys off jumping on the boot wagon :) (Yes, I suck at word play but sadly I do enjoy it). I sniped my pair with 15 seconds to go. Yay! I am one happy copy cat.

By the way, these shots were taken at St. Mary Magdalene Leper Chapel on an unbelievably warm December day. One day I was freezing wrapped up like an arctic explorer and the next I am mucking about in short sleeves. Lucky :)

  1. This is one of my favourite looks from you! I love how it's white in the middle and warm coloured on the ends! The boots are a great investment. I don't know what I did before buying my own Steve Madden's (on mega sale) last year. I think I had cold, unhappy legs.

  9. Fantastic location! It really goes with the colours of your outfit..
    And I love those boots! I recently 'appropriated' a gorgeous black riding style pair from my mum. My trouble is that I have very skinny legs, and the boots always tend to be too big around my calves - meaning more often than not they become slightly slouchy boots!

  16. I love the boots but that hat and scarf are to wonderful for words! I love their coloring! Oh and yes I love elinor carucci! The images I've seen have been on the larger scale but they were wonderfully printed. She is just so talented. :)

  17. I am a big fan of how you dress, a little hodge podgey but I think that's what makes it so great! I love the different knits going on in your sweater and hat and the first photo is gorgeous :)
