I'm just a little bit bored with clothes at the moment. It happens to me at this time of year, I just want a cozy jumper and jeans (and my thermal vest of course) and be done with it all. That being said, shoes are still floating my boat quite a bit and I do have a Christmas party coming up. On the flip side, there really is only so many times a fancy pair of shoes can be worn and I do have a few - I know, I too have just fallen off the chair at that statement. I'm reaching for the chocolate and G&T to bring me round, don't worry. But really, how gorgeous are these from River Island? Available in black as well and I don't think £65 is an unreasonable price tag. I was a little slow on the uptake and missed out on the Grazia code of 25% off so I haven't purchased them - yet! Oh and did I mention they are suede - my all time favourite for shoes!

While we are on the suede front, I may as well continue. My obsession with suede footwear is perhaps getting worse. I was in London last week for some press days. Boden as always, didn't disappoint. The only thing you have to bear in mind is that this is what is to come, they aren't yet available as this is their Spring/Summer drop.
|I have their Alice flats which are super, these look like a updated version complete with some great studding detail|
|Tassels are still in for next season|
Just throwing these in there as they were so stunning and stood out a mile. They are by Giuseppe Zanotti, a truly premium brand. These definitely had the 'wow' factor going on.
|And yes - they were suede too!|
Back down to earth with some every day footwear that also offers something a little different to the norm. You may have heard off the brand Minnetonka and if not, then you'll probably have seen a certain Miss Moss wearing a pair of hers. Flat, suede, fringing, they pretty much tick all the boxes. They have gone straight on my wish list after seeing a collection in the flesh.
Finishing with a boot I've got my eye on. I'm not a huge Ugg wearer anymore, I have 4 pairs, all pretty old now but I find them very heavy on the end of my little legs. My favourite are the short pair but I mainly wear these for ease when I go to Yoga. Office sent me an email introducing their exclusive Ugg Petra boot and I was immediately transfixed. They are in a nubuck leather so won't mark as easily as suede Ugg's but still have that sheepskin lining. On top of that they are short, which I love with skinny jeans. I'm yet to see these in the flesh and try them on but they may go on my sale shopping list!
