Feeling fancy in this look, which is like my dream Autumn evening outfit! Mixing old pieces in my wardrobe with some new ones here too. The skirt is Mango from about 18 months ago which still stands as one of those too-good-to-be-true high street finds that I bought in Madrid. The knit and boots are the new pieces, both sent to me from Stories. I will be honest and say I am not feeling the high neck knit as much this season, i think most of my looks will be crew necked, so I doubt I will welcome many more than this one into the collection. I love how it looks, and maybe as it gets colder my tune will change in favour of practicality, but at the moment a high neck is feeling restrictive and far less comfortable than I ever remember it being (aside from a skinny turtleneck). Anyway despite all that I do like how this looks with this outfit. The boots are of course the star of the show. You can wear them like this, or slouched down a bit as they do on the website. I thought they would be a more wrinkly/soft material than they are and that they would fall down naturally, but they really don’t - if you squish them down, they stay there, if you pull them up, they stay there too! Get your normal size but bare in mind they have a wide fit, so thick socks will be a must if you have thin feet!
