Autumn Winter Wishlist - Footwear

This is my first time ever compiling a wishlist! Where have i been? There is nothing i love more than dreaming of all the beautiful things i want haha especially when it comes to shoes. Being a fat girl, i spent years thinking the only 'stylish' items i could own that weren't (generally) size dependent were shoes. Of course, i now know that is COMPLETELY untrue, however, my deep and burning love of footwear is something that will never leave me!


After the incredible and moving ending to the This Is England series this year, i have thought of nothing but chelsea boot and chelsea haircuts. These Cherry Red Kensington Flora Dr Marten's are heavenly. Deep and heavy reds are such a big trend this season and despite the patience required to break in a pair of DM's, once you're there, you will more than reap the rewards - they are not only stylish but pretty much everlasting! These are also available in black but i think the Cherry Red (or Ox Blood red) just has that extra something that makes me lust after them to an almost inappropriate level!


Now i'm not sure what it is i love about these Converse Brea Hi Leather Lace Boots but i adore them. I think they remind me of my ill-spent emo youth, during which time i basically lived in various forms of converse. They are stylish, simple, super versatille and i do love a black leather shoe! I know Chucks aren't everyones go to, but if i were looking for a classic trainer with an edge, these would be my first choice. Whether you wear them with skirts, trousers, dresses, casual or adding a twist to a more dressed up look - you know these will serve you well!



Winter is coming and ya'll know what that means, praise the lord, boot weather is on its way! These Ugg Australia Orion Ankle Boots are so perfect. The buckle detailing at each ankle gives them a masculine edge whilst the subtle wood-look heel and delicate leather still keep them feminine. I love an ankle boot because you aren't fully commiting to enclosing your entire leg haha but your feet remain toasty warm and dry - weather you wear them with tights, jeans, leggings etc, they will always look badass. Honestly, Ugg has never really been a brand that i have paid much attention to in the past, but these badboys made me really take notice!



These Vagabond Patent Leather Loafers are so chunky and delicious i can hardly contain myself. I am a SUCKER for anything patent - whether that be shoes, hand bags or items of clothing, i cannot get enough. As the weather gets colder and the ice sets in, the heavy soles of these loafers will be perfect to keep your feet firmly on the ground but also look super on point. Being an incredibly clumsy individual, any shoe that helps me NOT fall over is a great bonus haha. Most loafers we see now have tassles or some other adornment in the frontal area, however, the plain tongue of these gives them a mjore 90's, Buffy-inspired feel which, as you know, i will always embrace with open arms. You could definitely slay in these!


Oh Vans, my deep love for you will never end. As an emo teen, i feel in love with The Z Boys documentary, followed by Lords Of Dogtown. Despite being far too fat and clumsy to actually ever step onto a skateboard, i adored and still do adore, the simplicity of the original skater style. Vans embody that as far as i am concerned. This pair had me at Hello. Leopard print? YES. Vintage-look gold eyelets? YES. I am all over them. Although they wouldn't be the easiest shoe to coordinate because of the heavy, bold pattern, they are worth owning for everyday you ever feel fashion uninspired but shoe fierce. They are also currently in the sale over on Jake Shoes (Vans Era 59 Lace Pump In Leopard Print)!



Now last but by NO means least are my ultimate Autumn Winter footwear lust! Another pair of Vans, but this time a heavenly pair of Classic Slip Ons! After giving up trainers and casual footwear for a large percentage of my adult life, i am slowly reintroducing them into my wardrobe and this pair would be the ULTIMATE addition to my footwear collection. Look at the delicious shine on them? Look how classic and simple they are but what a statement they make? I could honestly gush on and on about these because they are glorious and i need them. All the Vans i have ever owned have been hard wearing and insanely comfortable from the word go and i am guessing (hoping) that these will be no different. They are also in the sale over on Jake Shoes, GRAB THEM WHILST YOU STILL CAN (Vans Classic Patent Slip On).

I have been lucky enough to be gifted a pair of the shoes by Jake Shoes and will be reviewing them very shortly for you guys, so keep an eye out! In the mean time, head on over to Jake Shoes to shop the full collection of Mens, Ladies & Kids shoes amongst other items, including their fabulous sale!

Lots Of Love,
