I am OBSESSED with these boots. I've been seriously tempted by investing in a pair of over the knee boots for a couple of years now after admiring the Russell and Bromley Stuart Weitzman range... which my bank account wasn't admiring quite so much.
Since receiving these boots I've already decided i'm going to get my self another pair just so I can have one pair for best, and one for day time... Over the top I know but i'm in love!!
There's something about an over the knee boot that I find really flattering, I don't know whether they are leg lengthening or slimming somehow... but they tick the box for me!
I also think It's really hard to find the perfect pair. There are loads around and I think I must have tried on most of them. These are THE ones!
Paired with my marvelous new boots, I'm wearing my Topshop Joni jeans and fur Whistles gilet (see all links below). I'm so pleased I invested in this gilet last year because it still looks and feels brand new and is such a perfect addition to almost any outfit, smart or casual.
I'm also wearing an absolute bargain of a bag! This little croc across the body bag was under £20... yep, you heard me right! (it also has 20% off for Black Friday weekend right now) Recently I have discovered that Mango have the BEST bags for such amazing prices. Honestly... go check out the bag section!
Tied to my bag is my new little KenzoxHM scarf for a little colour pop which I felt this outfit really needed!

My Hubby and I recently visited the Cotswolds for a long weekend, and I loved every minute of it! You may have caught my first post about it here, but if not, I'm showing you a little bit more of where we explored on our second day
After leaving Cirencester we headed to this beautiful little village Bourton-On-The-Water which I actually found whilst googling places to visit when in the Cotswolds, I'm SO pleased I stumbled upon it!
Once parked up our first stop was this rather cute model village of the village. It was really quite funny walking around it feel like a giant... but was a great way for us to see where we wanted to go, the most visual map you could ask for!
I rather liked the look of this mansion... looking rather adoringly!
We soon headed on to explore the cutest little streets and of course stopped at this quaint little sweet shop for chocolate covered peanuts and brazil nuts. This is always mine and Charlies sweet of choice!
The river running through the middle of the village was beautiful. So many people wiht their children gathered to feed the ducks which made me think I would love to come back here one day in the future!
Bourton-On-The-Water is also far from short of tea rooms! We went to and from a few for a good 10 minutes before finally deciding on a place to eat. All topped off with an ice cream... yes it was about 8 degrees... but hey, when on holiday!
We also passed the 'Cotswold Candlemakers' which we of course popped in to! They had loads of gorgeou goodies in there (so good for presents) I bought two little metal reindeer shaped tea light holders for my Mum. At the back of the shop was the owner him self pouring candles as we watched on! Was so nice to see... he said almost everything in the shop was hand made.
We soon decided we had done enough exploring and headed to our next hotel 'The Wheatsheaf Inn' and ohhh what a treat it was!
Welcomed by a roaring fire, we were soon taken to our room which was just BEAUTIFUL! I have a thing about roll top baths and this one didn't fail to please. With an array of 100 Acres products to use and trays of tea just a call away, we were both instantly relaxed and I couldn't have enjoyed the afternoon any more.
I wish I could teleport myself back in to this bath immediately! Such a treat and would absolutely love to visit again... or atleast try some of the other hotels in this chain.
All in all a rather splendid trip to the Cotswolds and a big tick off the list! All to soon we headed home sweet home and at least I have some wonderful pics to remember the trip by.
For a rather long time now, I've been desperate to have a long weekend in the Cotswolds... and my hubby and I finally got round to it!
After a few hours in the car we finally arrived at our first destination... Cirencester. I could not believe how beautiful this town was, I would happily live there! We parked up and spent a couple of hours wandering the streets before checking in to our first hotel 'The Kings Head'.
How amazing is that fire place!! After a lazy couple of hours enjoying the hotel room, we headed down to the restaurant and had a delicious meal! If you know me well... you will not be at all surprised in my choice. Burger! Fizzy bubbles on the side of course.
We also both had a really delicious pud of bread and butter pudding. So yummy! We soon finished up and headed back to our rather lovely room where I ended the evening with a rather long bath with a G & T on the side. Perfection!
In such a wonderful bed as big as it was, we slept like an absolute dream! We had a rather lovely Monday morning lie in and tried to appreciate every second of it!
We soon headed down to breakfast... my favourite part of staying in a hotel! We helped our self to an array of juices and pastries before ordering 2 full English breakfasts to set us up for the day ahead!
An incredibly relaxing stay with the most gorgeous room and such delicious food. We soon checked out and said goodbye to 'The Kings Head'... and off we went to our next Cotswolds retreat... (Part 2 coming Thursday!)
A recent Zara splurge has united me with lots of lovely new (and VERY reasonable items) including this silky bomber jacket! I know I'm a little late on the bomber jacket trend but I really did think this one was gorgeous and too good not to add to my over flowing basket! (psst... it was under £20! Enough to get anyone excited!)
I fell instantly in love with the jacket as soon as I opened the perfectly presented Zara box.
I was however slightly worried that I bought this too late to wear with out freezing.. but it's actually got a little padding so I seem to just about be getting away with it for now. Although I feel each day is become even chillier!
I need to make the most of it while I can!
With my new jacket I'm wearing my black joni jeans and ever appearing Russell & Bromley boots (definitely my best purchase from last winter!)
An easy comfortable look for any weekend wandering the high streets through town.
I almost forgot to mention my handbag too.. again an ABSOLUTE bargain at under £20 and I really don't think it looks it. Hopefully you could tell either! (find the link just below)

I can't help but fall in love with all the beautiful colours of the leaves that are falling at the moment. I thought this was the perfect scene for an Autumnal blog post!
I'm wearing my new faux leather burgundy skirt which was such a steal!! It was under £20 and It really does look and feel like leather. It also comes in 2 more colours so worth checking it out (There's a link to it at the bottom of the page)
Paired with my new burgundy skirt I'm wearing a navy rib knit with some lovely striped detailing on the arms. A perfect way to add a splash of colour and also... for a stripe lover like my self, a different way to wear your stripes!
I almost wish this part of Autumn lasted just a little bit longer. It seems all these beautiful colours come and go so quickly!
I'm also wearing my new Fiorelli handbag which I obviously just had to add a pom pom to... as it's been hiding in my draw all summer. The perfect addition to any bag I think!
