6 gorgeous boots for winter

6 gorgeous boots for winter

One (of the few) thing that I like about winter is the fact that you get to wear boots and coats. I have been searching for THE perfect pair of boots for the past few years now. While I don't have a specific idea of what I'm actually looking for, I do know what I do like in cold season footwear. Here are 6 boots that I would simply love to add to my wardrobe.

1 & 3 - These cute booties would look amazing with a skirt. If it's too cold to show some skin, some tights or leggings will keep your legs warm.

2, 4 & 6- I've had a pair of boots similar to theses ones. My favourite outfit to wear with them was a comfy, warm, long sleeved top with skinny jeans. I also was a big fan of leg warmers, so I'd often wear some cute ones under my boots. I preferred the ones that had a bit of details (such as a bit of frilling) that would appear just above the top part of the boots.

5 - I find these overtop military boots to be the cutest things ever. I believe these would be best paired with skinny jeans, as they would be folded over them. It would create the perfect casual look when paired with a short, belted jacket. You can also add a bit of layer (and warmth) by wearing wool socks that are bunched up, but that will still appear over the jeans.

What kind of boots will you be wearing this year? And with which kind of outfit?

About a year and a half ago, I bought my first (and only) set of clip in extensions from LuxyHair and still do this day, I have no regrets.

I first heard of LuxyHair when I was searching for hairstyle tutorials on Youtube and came across the LuxyHair channel where two sisters, Mimi and Leyla, created easy and cute everyday hairstyles. From braids to buns, from updos to waves, these lovely ladies have a hairstyle for any occasion. 

Mimi and Leyla are actually the ones that founded the LuxyHair company. They provide great quality 100% remy hair that is long, thick, shiny and beautiful at an affordable price. I would highly recommend these extensions to anyone. I find that they blend well with my hair, especially if I wear them wavy or curly. They are perfect for adding volume and length to anyone's hair and will help create gorgeous hairstyles. It take aboue 5 minutes to put in and even less time to take out. As I said, I bought mine over a year and a half ago and I still wear them on a regular basis.

Here a my three favourite hairstyle tutorials from LuxyHair:

ELIE SAAB - Spring\Summer 2014 Ready-To-Wear Collection

Have you seen the new Spring\Summer 2014 collection by Elie Saab? It is absolutely gorgeous! The colours, the shapes, the flow, the material, the EVERYTHING! Each and every piece, while having a certain je ne sais quoi in common, has it's own unique taste to it and I love every single one of them. Here are a few of my favourite pieces, and you can click here to see more photos of the show (all the pictures down here come from the Vogue website).

I don't know about you, but if this is a sign of what's to come next year in the fashion world, I'm quite excited about it and am really looking forward to next Spring and Summer.

Winter's a coming

Winter's a coming

With the cold weather making it's way here, here a ten super cute coats that could make the transition to the cooler seasons much better.

At the moment, I am weak for leather jackets such as the Black Faux Leather Jacket from Aéropostale. I recently bought one from New Look and I simply adore it. You can keep it casual and warm by wearing it open over a hoodie, but you can also dress it up by wearing it over a nice dress or with skinny jeans and some gorgeous pumps.

I am also a sucker for longer coats, such as the salmon coloured Marc Jacobs belted wrap coat, the mustard Vivienne Westwood coat, the red Miss Selfridge coat and the black Warehouse Crepe Military Coat. They seem a bit fancier than the average hip-length coat and would be perfect to wear out on a special events, such as on a date, an interview, an evening at the theatre, etc.

The grey Raxevsky jacket, the nude MSGM Cape en Laine and the sleeveless Haider Ackermann vest on the other hand, would be perfect for those warmer autumn evening when you only need a long sleeved shirt underneath to keep you warm. Add that to a nice of jeans with flats, and you've got the ideal casual day outfit!

Finally, the black Miu Miu belted jacket and the blue L K Bennett belted wool coat will look good on anyone, as the belt will accentuate the smallest part of your waist, therefore giving the gorgeous hourglass silhouette all the while keeping you warm and toasty.

Have you been wearing your warm coat already? What does it look like and with what kind of outfit do you prefer to wear it?
