To the basement people

HELLO sex on feet! And I'm talking about my new boots of course, which I have seen multiple versions of across the high street, but it was H&M which came up trumps for me. You might've seen my tweet last week about how in an unintentional spree I somehow managed to find The winter Coat & Boots (yes, capitals) in the space of about 10 minutes. I felt quite high from the retail hoard, it's got to be said. With these angry looking beauties, I can't see them on the H&M website so I can only suggest you head down to your local store and snap these up. They're a little higher than the photo angle gives them credit for, and my god do they make me feel like I could kick anyone's ass. I might wear them on shift next time I'm at work. You don't like the coffee I made you? KAPOW.

And thiiiiis is the second lovely find. Well technically, it's version 2. I've been on the hunt for the androgynous wool boyfriend throw-over for bloody months (and don't my friends know it). The Topshop one had me on the verge of insanity. Yes I became that annoying customer who bombarded both the sales staff and their online customer service with "wherecanIfindthisNOW" questions. No-one particularly helped (thanks) but I suppose finding this little number from Dorothy Perkins was just meant to be. I've mentioned before how I like dressing like a bloke, and with this coat and these boots I'm never going to be looked at in a funny way for ordering pints ever again.

How are you all shaping up for winter wear? There are so absolutely CRACKING choices when it comes to coats on the high street, I'd love to hear what style road you're going down. xox

  4. I love this coat, spotted it in Dorothy Perkins and had a lusting session over it. It looks amazing with those boots!

    I quite fancy some heeled black desert boots for the winter, spotted a nice pair in Next but just have to get round to buying them. I think they will go with everything!

  5. Probably would never have picked that coat out just from seeing it on the hanger, but it looks gorgeous on! Definitely The Coat. I just bought some Allegras so hopefully they will be The Boots for me cos I can't hack getting wet ballerina shoes all winter xx

  15. they look wicked, and massive. proper romper stompers. i'm looking for some kind of boot, not exclusively though. my thing on the look out for is thinker trousers, either some wooly dark grey or some dark green thick cords.

  19. i so adore both the boots and coat, what lovely finds! i have to say that i've been pretty lucky on the coat/shoes front too, though i'm still after the perfect pair of winter boots! xx

  20. The jacket and boots are really cool. Nice finds. Well, i've been also looking for a jacket and i've found some amazing vintage store but there are so many choices. I don't know if i should go for the parka version or furry version?! hmm

  22. The coat looks so cute on you! I'm kind of hopeless when it comes to winter, I don't really like wearing coats. But I have my eye on an amazing jumper!

  29. I have boots just like this from Topshop. I feel so tough in them! They're the perfect height for me too. I could buy winter boots over and over but I find it really hard to part with my money for coats. So silly I know because you wear them practically everyday of the whole season but I can never find one I like quite enough. May have to start looking harder. X
