Winter Weakness

Although it's still technically autumn, the winter chills have officially made their entrance in Brisbane this week. There's nothing better than a 'legit' excuse, like the changing seasons, for a wardrobe restock.

"I swear I don't have any winter clothes. These are essential purchases. I'm am in complete control of my shopping urges."

Yeah Pip, sure...

But seriously what better excuse to indulge in a new pair of boots and a beautiful knit!


Miista May Boot Silver and Sheike Wonderland Blue Knit Dress
Miista May Boots in Silver available here & here (if you're quick!)
and Wonderland Knit Dress in Blue from Sheike (on sale for a short time!).


I've been on the lookout for the perfect pair of ankle boots with a chunky, square, high heel. At just over 5'2" I'm always hunting for extra height where I can get away with it and I'm a big fan of the chunky styles; if you get it right, your ankles and legs will always look dainty in comparison! 

I'm not the only one that's weirdly self conscious of their ankles, right...?

This boot also looks awesome in black as a staple, but unfortunately they're a rare breed at this point. I was more than happy to be able to get my hands on the silver instead - any excuse to wear something shiny!

I've been lusting after my second purchase, this amazing knitted mini, for a while. I tried it on in store a few weeks ago and it was super comfy and super eye-catching, so with the sudden change to cold weather and a surprise sale at Sheike, this one was a no brainer. 

Can't wait for these beauties to arrive in the mail.
