I wore this outfit last weekend when I popped over to the retail park for a little bit of shopping. I’ve not started Christmas shopping yet though, but I did make a few purchases for myself! I finally got round to wearing my new leather skirt which I was sent by Zalando a few weeks ago.
It’s perhaps not the most flattering outfit on me, as the skirt is very sticky-outy and makes my booty look rather wide, but I do like it. I’d wanted a proper leather look skirt for a while, as all the ones I’d seen were the disco pants/wet look type and were too flimsy. This is really good quality and thick, and it has a really nice soft suede inside. The skirt is by a Danish brand called ‘Only’ (run by the same company as Vero Moda) and it’s called the Amelia skirt, but it looks like it’s sold out on the Zalando website now.
I wore it along with this berry red tshirt from Select, which was only £6! It’s long length, and normally I never, ever wear tshirts, but I liked the leather capped sleeves on this. I’m not sure if it’s a faux pas wearing a leather skirt with this leather sleeved top.. but I thought they went together quite nicely! My favourite part of this outfit though is definitely my new boots.
When I was at college and had to wait around at the bus stop for an hour in the rain everyday, I discovered Shoe Zone and their cheap yet stylish winter boots. I finally grew out of getting wet feet from wearing ballet pumps to college, and decided I had to wear proper winter footwear, and I remember Shoe Zone was where I’d always buy my winter boots from! In between their rather uncool school shoes they have some real treasures. These fur wedge boots definitely being one of them! These Lilley boots are only £22.99 (they offer free delivery too!) and I’ve been wearing them non stop since I received them.
These are perfect for me, and I don’t think I could design boots myself that would suit my preferences any better. The wedge heel is the perfect height, and they’re so comfortable. I’ve been wearing them to work, out shopping, and even out clubbing on Friday night! I always love black suede boots, and the grey faux fur cuff makes them extra cosy for winter. I might buy another pair now to keep them stored up for next winter in case I wear these ones out!
