I dedicate this post to my new boots.

Lets not beat around the bush here. This post is an excuse to show off my new boots.

They are from ASOS. They were £45 and I got them on Saturday. Note that they are likely to be welded to my feet going forward.

Cool, comfortable and Isabel Marant inspired for a 10th of the price? Yes please!

They look good with silly little dresses and skinny jeans. I can't wait to pair them with shorts, with skirts....well with bleedin' everything! Good in summer and good in winter - you really CANNOT go wrong.

I wore them with an aforementioned silly little dress yesterday...it felt like a nice balance. A little bit feminine and a little bit tough - but not too much of either which makes me feel comfortable.

Without sounding like a Boastful Betty I liked quite a few things here...

* The little bag from Topshop - so useful and prevents me from toting around too much stuff when I don't need it. The law of bags: Big bag = more crap. Little bag = essentials)
* The lacy white dress - love this kind of high neck, shift mini. Modern and retro all-in-one.
* The denim shirt - like the boots, adds a little edge and whilst it's a little dull and generic now, it felt good and so that was enough for me.









Dress: Topshop (Link!)
Denim shirt: Whistles (last season)
Boots: ASOS (Link!)
Bag: Topshop frill woven bag in tan (Link!)
Jewels: Sideways cross necklace (hurrah! It returns! Link to etsy seller!), black beaded bracelet from Tiffany & Co (JENNIFER: I got your email and thats where I got it from: never take it off :) and usual watch from Michael Kors.
Sunglasses: Raybans

If anything I urge you to get the boots. They are so versatile and very easy to walk in. My only bit of advice would be to think about sizing. I got a size 5 and part of me thinks I could have done with a half size smaller - if they even did half sizes. If you are between one size of the other maybe go for the lower number but then they are pull-on...oh I don't know, it was just a thought!

Hope you had a good weekend and a fantastic start to the week :)

  27. how's the heel height? ive been contemplating on those but i ended up buying the Aldo Qualheim which is about $15 more only but look much similar to isabel marant dicker/forbes. Geez, you'd think they'd have a gazillion IM Dicker knockoffs 'cause it's so famous, but it's so hard to find without paying TOO MUCH!!!

  28. Hi Laura! Love the boots :)) I have the same Tiffany & Co bracelet and like you, I didnt take it off since I bought it (during my holiday in NY).... However I feel that it has stretched out (or I lost weight) ... Scared to lose it from slipping off my hand, I make a mental note to remove it :)
    Ps. Im thinking of creating similar blog but I think my fashion sense is too safe :) we will see hahahaha I always enjoy your posts :)

  29. Love the boots and the dress! Aren't lace dresses the best? And of course love ASOS.

  31. Love this outfit from head to toe!! I got some "cowboy mini boots" back in december and LOOOVE them.

    Side note: I may be a little late mentioning this but do I spy something "extra" sparkly on your ring finger? :) Did you get married during your YT break? If so, congrats!

  36. I love all of these pieces!!! the dress suits you so well. the denim jacket instantly made the look more casual. the boots- so beautiful and they'll be so great for the fall. thanks for providing the link... I want to buy but I shouldn't ahh what a dilemma haha. big bag means more crap is so true, im a "stuffer," I can stuff and stuff everything and anything that I do and don't need into my satchel.

  38. Oh, Laura, I love-love-love your outfit! And those boots are a-m-a-z-i-n-g! I have them in black, can't wait for an autumnt to wear with a mini-skirt and my military cape!!! Wanted to ask you about your Young Fabulous & Broke Maxi dress - what size do you have it in? After seeing you in it I can't sleep - I want this dress so much,but the sizing is a bit confusing. I am approximately ur size..And don't know which size to buy - S or M :(

  42. I love those boots, spotted a similar pair on Style of a Fashionista who seems to wear them a lot. I've got a similiar pair in black but really want the tan. I was secretly wishing you wouldn't have these only because everyone else will now! We are such a fickle lot!

  43. The boots are gorgeous! I brought some similar ones today but in black from h&m for only £15! Can't wait to wear them in the winter aha! xox

  51. I almost bought these Asos boots, but like Angel, bought the Aldo Qualheim boots instead since I was exchanging some wedges. Just got them today, and they're super comfortable, but come with distressed areas that I was not expecting. Love your Topshop bag, too! Enjoy your new boots!
