I've been lusting after the Chelsea and Allegra boots for months now, and still haven't bought any. So when I popped home at easter and found my old riding boots, I just couldn't resist. Even though they don't have the same leather finish and have a horse shoe pattern on the soles, I'm rather chuffed. My feet are a funny size with one being bigger than the other etc, so I'm always wary about buying online which steered me away from the dupes on ebay, and just couldn't justify spending £60+ on a pair of boots on my student budget. I'm so pleased that for once in my life, I didn't waste my money, and waited. Good things come to those who wait eh?

  5. They're adorable! And I love your outfit (which isn't any surprise since most of it is from Topshop). And spending so much money on a student budget is always hard to do. You could always monetize your blog!

    I'm the same way with my feet sizes - either annoying I must admit! I'll think I've found the perfect size and then I'll try on the other shoe - ugh so lame.
