I know I say it all the time but Autumn is my favourite season and this is one of the many reasons why - beautiful backgrounds everywhere you go! If you follow me on instagram, you'll have probably noticed that all I do this time of year is go on long walks, followed by a tea and cake break. It's what I did on Saturday, and on Sunday and it's what I intend to do this weekend. And I'm not even sorry. I just love being outdoors when everything looks so pretty, and the weather is cold and crisp.
Today's post is part of a campaign with People Make Glasgow, showcasing what Glasgow has to offer when it comes to shopping. As someone who's main past time (other than Autumn walks) is shopping, I can personally vouch for Glasgow as one of the best shopping cities. With 200+ stores in the city centre and many of them open late mid-week (7/8pm), you can always find what you're looking for. The St. Enoch Centre is open til 7pm Monday-Friday - perfect if you fancy a shopping trip after work or college. For my part in the campaign, I was challenged to find an Autumn outfit in the St. Enoch Centre, and here's what I put together.
I've been looking for a pair of flat suede over the knee boots for ages now, but every pair I've tried have been too loose at the top. I felt like I'd died and gone to boot heaven when I saw what Garage Shoes had on display. If you're looking for over the knee boots, you need to go and have a look (they're online too if you don't live nearby). They had 15+ pairs of over the knee boots in all different styles - I was in my element trying them all on and finally found this pair which are exactly what I was looking for. Can you believe these were only £35 too?
My favourite way to style over the knee boots is with a loose fitting dress like this one from H&M. The print and colour are perfect for Autumn, although there was one problem - the dress was slightly too long to be worn with these boots. Luckily, I was feeling super efficient and some hemming tape, scissors and a set of straighteners later, I'd taken it up a few inches. With boots like this, it's important that everything else is the right length to balance out the shape - so I also went for this camel coat in the petite size. This meant it was slightly shorter than normal and gave the right order of coat, dress, tights then boots where they all met.
What do you think of this outfit?
