If the boot fits




boots: mathers // skirt: kmart // shirt: dotti // blazer: zara // bag: spotted moth

Finding long boots is an absolute nightmare for me. I have chunky calves and most boots will only zip half way up. I spotted these last week and was adamant they wouldn't fit but my friends convinced me to try them on. Low and behold they zipped up (ignore the fact I had to size up and have to wear thick ankle socks) and I now have boots for winter. The weather here is beautiful at the moment crisp mornings and lovely sunny days I wish  Autumn could last forever.

This weekend has been slow and relaxing. I have read books, watched documentaries, napped and completed three loads of laundry. I love busy weekends but quiet ones remind you to take time out and enjoy the simple things. I think I needed this weekend to really get over the cold I have had for the last little while. I am finally feeling motivated again after two long weeks of feeling tired and uninspired.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend!

P.s If you are a documentary nerd like me check out hundreds of free documentaries, I am absolutely addicted!


  1. Lovely boots! I struggle to wear my boots without overheating. You wear blazers very well. xx

  2. L-O-V-E the boots! I have chunky calves but really small ankles and feet, so I have struggled to find a pair of long boots that fit right. In fact, I'm still searching...

  3. Those boots are GORGEOUS! Do you mind sharing how much and what the style is called? I too am blessed with thick calves and would love to try these on!! =)

  4. They are fantastic boots! I have the too-big-calves problem too sometimes, it can be a pain. Love the outfit :)

  5. I love love your boots. I have some that are quite similar. Brown boots are so classic. I just adore your style.

  6. Ahh...those boots!

    I also have a problem with long boots. Alas, my problem is that they go over my knees. Damn these short legs!

    I find that mid calf boots suit me best.

  7. I am going to check out right now as I am a huge documentary nerd. As I write I am watching one about the world's largest ever snake - fossils were found and the snake would have been almost 50 feet long. Can you imagine!
    Anyway I also love your outfit - the skirt is so cute!

  8. Eeee I love documentaries thanks for the link!

  9. @clara the boots are from Mathers there a brand called giovanna and the style is tempo they were $150 on sale but are a gorgeous soft leather!

  10. These boots are amazing! I have the exact opposite problem, boots look so ugh on me unless I layer them over skinny jeans because of my skinny legs! :(

  11. Love this outfit - especially the boots! I'm like you, I struggle to get boots to fit my calves, especially since I only wear a size 7 shoe.

  12. Undeniably believe that that you stated. Your favourite reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to bear
    in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don't know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as defined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , other folks can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
