How to keep your thigh high boots thigh high.Β 

Hey guys..do you suffer from skinny calf syndrome like myself? 

Do you find that your thigh high boots keep falling down??

My problem is that I have to buy a UK size 8 or 9 shoe to fit my big feet but then the calf doesnt fit well.😌.

So there is my little hack of getting them boots to stay up where they need to be.

All you need to do is tie a scarf around the fullest part of your calf. This will create some resistance if the boots want to slide down. Hence preventing your thigh high boots from falling. 
This can also be done with a small hand towel. The best part is that it can also keep you warm.

πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒWinning! 

VoilΓ  !

Thigh high boots that actually stay thigh high. 
Do let me know if the above works for your. Or if you have alternative tip’s please share. 
See you soon.

A-Z A/W trends 2015 – Shearling

This is just in time as things get even colder.
Textures are huge this season … from fur to tweed to leather to shearling.
Considering that it’s coat season I will be sharing some of my favourite shearling coats .

I love this reversable pile coat from H & M.
It’s like getting 2 jackets for the price of one πŸ‘. You can’tΒ  go wrong.

Check out this patchwork faux fur and faux shearling coat from Asos. And guess what …. its from the Tall range.

This is how I would style my Shearling.

A-Z A/W trends 2015 -Over the knee boots

Yep! !!!!!   You guessed it.
Some call it Over The Knee Boots, others OTKB, or even Thigh High Boots. With high or low heel, leather or suede. Whatever YOU call it this is a must have for this season.

Below are some of my favourite for 2015

image

I am still madly in love with the colour Camel and I am swaying more to the suede/ suedette look. However, peep toes get me each and every time.

I am 6ft 1 and I say yes to some heel with this trend.

One thing I have noticed about these over the knee boots is that it’s hard to find a pair that fits my large calf’s and my thick thighs πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

A-Z A/W trends 2015 – Look no hands !

The designers have gone the extra mile to emphasis long sleeves with bell cuffs and balloon sleeves.
As a tall women long sleeves are sooo hard to come by. I am so ready to embrace this trend.
More so as temperature drops my fingers need as much concealing as possible.

For the times when you cant afford a real SUEDE skirt, … a suedette one from New look will do just fine. Β See, you couldn’t even tell the difference. πŸ˜€

I also really like the fit of this over the knee boots, not only does it got over my calf ( yes thats a common issue for me) but it also fits my tights.

PSX_20151002_223757[1] PSX_20151002_224055[1]

I do love my flat days, especially for the times when practical and comfort are the rule of the day.

I fell in love with these nude patent pumps just because of the embellishment *coveringface* is that sad?? Yes I can be super girlie and I would say YES to some sparkles any day.

Brogues have never been so trendy. Β Topshop really pushed the boat out with thisΒ contrast toe cap, lace-up front and cut out style.

Upgrade your 9-5

Upgrading your 9-5 is not easy but it CAN be done. Interestingly, I did just that by making 2 simple changes…… to my outfit. I am talking about how I updated my 9-5 work look;););)
I am the worst for not making an effort when going to work.
But the following saying really got me thinking:

“Dress the way you want to be addressed”

Getting the balance between looking chic for work yet not over the top is a daily battle. But I think I have nailed the 2 staple peices to update any work outfit.
As we say sayonara to summer and hello fall; jackets, coats, trench coats and classic heels are the only way forward. Make sure you do not get left behind.

These shoes are the business but I can’t help but see them as casual when I wear it to work

Angle grazer trouser are great for work.Β  They are super versatile and very comfort. With these you can bring some colour to any work environment.
Remember smart does not have to mean boring!!

What a difference a pair of heels and a Camel Coat makes.
