The Style Post: Grey Knits and New Boots

I’m all about the budget buys at the moment when it comes to what I’m wearing, it’s been difficult weening myself away from Cos and Urban Outfitters and on to something a little lighter on the purse, but I like to see it as a challenge – the prize? Being warm AND able to afford Christmas presents. Oh joy.

Lets start on the snuggly bit – Missguided are bringing it when it comes to jumpers at the moment. The charcoal grey knit above was one of three I ordered and fell in love with. It’s not too heavy, which makes it easy to layer, but also works well on it’s own with a slight autumnal chill. It also complements a leather skirt perfectly – which brings me on to my leather skirt. Another Missguided purchase. It rides up something awful when you’re trying to make a speedy dash to work in the morning, so don’t try getting anywhere in a hurry wearing this, but it is bloody beautiful and if memory serves me right it cost less than £15. Barg.

The last payday purchase, but by no means least were my (first pair of) winter boots from New Look, I snapped these up as they bare a little resemblance to the Acne/Whistles/Office boots that are doing the round this winter. But obviously for a tiny fraction of the price. They’re a little higher than my everyday heel, but despite the hight they’re surprisingly comfortable and I’ve been slipping into these on a daily basis over my second pair of (lower heeled) boots from New Look. Yes, I did go nuts in New Look and Missguided. Keep your eyes peeled for a haul this weekend!

To wrap it all up I threw on my Primark biker coat. I may look a little bit like a child goth in it but it’s perfect for the current chill that’s currently whistling through Brighton. It’s safe to say winter is well and truly creeping in – prepare yourselves for the reappearance of the (faux) fur coat ladies…

    Looks really nice. I already have a leather skirt however mine's a little longer than yours, which looks beautiful! I really want it.

    Love this outfit! I just bought a leather skirt too because it (and this outfit) reminds me of MIC and Lucy Watson.

  33. 06 Nov 2013 / 5:19 pm

    I love the miss guided jumper and the little socks with the boots. I have been loving my little frilly socks at the moment.


  34. 06 Nov 2013 / 5:31 pm

    Don't tell me to leave my Urban outfitters! I bought a sale jumper from Uo the other day for £20, but it was the only nice one under £50 that they had in stock, so I'm definitely going to have to check out missguided!

    Love this! I've recently just purchased a leather skirt too after being on the hunt for ages. I got mine from H&M and it was also only £15 – the riding up thing is a problem for me too however.

    Going to get myself to Primark to try and snag that coat!

    ComplEment, not compliment. To compliment is to say something nice, your jumper is not saying nice things to your skirt. Complement is to go well with something.

  51. 07 Nov 2013 / 8:58 pm

    Might have to start checking out Missguided more!

  52. 07 Nov 2013 / 9:47 pm

    Gorgeous outfit, love the jumper especially. Your make-up looks so pretty here too!

  53. 08 Nov 2013 / 2:13 am

    I'm a bit obsessed with this outfit. Everything from the sweater to the boots and frilly socks are perfect! You also made that short leather skirt look unbelievably chic! Thanks for the fall time fashion inspiration!
