Olivia Palmero gave me thigh high boot envy this year and after being ridiculously fussy, I finally found a pair I liked! I went for a medium chunky heel in a black suede, so I can wear them casually in the day and more dressed up on the evening. I did also like a few leather styles, but I felt like the suede material was more understated and reduced my fear of me looking like a stripper…
The oversized jumper is from H&M and is cosiest thing ever. A cream jumper is great for transitioning into spring and I’d go for one in a long length so you can wear it as a jumper dress. To keep warm, I layered with a black long-sleeve basic and slip dress with lace trim.
I always wear long socks under these boots to give the illusion that they are slightly higher up the thigh.
My handbag is Michael Kors and adds a little pop of the camo trend.
My beloved hat is Primark and I’ve also added a gold earring to the ribbon!

I know it has been a while! I’m currently in final year at university so life has been a bit hectic!
So this Christmas I was lucky enough to spend my time in Asia and therefore got to indulge in shopping and bargain hunting in Bangkok and Singapore! My favourites places were the little malls where the shops are simply called ‘The 200 Baht shop’ or ‘The 300 Baht Shop’.
(200 Baht works out at about £4!)
I picked up this military style jacket in a store where everything was uniquely customised. I think it would be pretty easy to make one yourself and customise one of your own jackets, as long as you can get your hands on a length of fringing from a fabric shop!
For my take on the military trend I paired the camo jacket with Topshop embellished jeans, a black roll neck, chunky boots and I added a hat purely because it is SO windy!
Military style and khaki colours are a key winter trend and were seen on the catwalk by Balmain, Calvin Klein and Isabel Marant. When wearing this trend think army uniform with a feminine twist by adding textures of leather and lace. Finish with a chunky boot for the daytime or a black stiletto for the evening. Below are some of my favourites pieces on the high street at the moment.
