Hello my lovelies, so yes once again I have popped up from the murky suburbs to bring you a little bit of (all black) winter outfit inspiration. I promise there will be a blog post/youtube video soon on why I have been away for so long. Thank you so much to all of you who have stuck by me. I am back for a while hopefully for good, you never know. 

Today I just had to share with you all an outfit including three of my ultimate die for items of A/W (definitely heading on my Christmas list). Now I think like most of you guys and girls I have spent a rather dubious amount of time hunting the world for that perfect pair of winter boots. So when these cleated, over the knee babies popped up on my Facebook page I almost passed out with joy! They are everything a girl needs, cleated, not too high and oh so sexy! Instantly outfits galore started snapping into my head and I am not too ashamed to admit that after a sleepless night of fantasizing and outfit planning I just had to style these for you. 

I decided to stick with my signature all black style (Hey it is winter after all) instead playing with textures and patterns. This stunning chunky knit from Missguided for example, perfectly slit at the sides to show just a glimpse of the sexy lace trim of the Topshop shorts. Now as everyone knows if you're not 5ft 9 and look as if you've just paraded of the catwalk, shorts and high rise boots can make your legs look a lot shorter then they are, adding a pair of patterned tights, especially with vertical stripes like these will not only lengthen your legs but also add some flair to a possibly bland outfit. 

Then I of course had to go with a classic style handbag and fedora to add chicness to the overall look and then contrast this with lots of silver and black Gothic jewelry. I am loving these faux septum rings from La Moda!!! The perfect finishing touch- why one of Charlotte Tillbury's too die for matte lipsticks in shade Glastonberry a dark plummy red for winter. 

So there you have it guys how I would style these stunning boots for a chilly winters day- of course I do live in the UK so I would definitely recommend a coat!  

Let me know what you'll be wearing this winter in the comments below.
