Personally, I couldn't be happier with the onset of the colder months; despite being a July baby, I've always preferred being wrapped up in a scarf, wandering around under Oxford Street's Christmas lights, or snuggling up under a blanket with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate.
Whilst normally, at this time of year, I'd have started a list for all my Christmas shopping (only 13 weekends left to shop for your loved ones!), the promise of student finance next week meant a recent trip to New Look left me giving in, shamelessly, to the temptation of one of my biggest weaknesses; new shoes.
Don't get me wrong; these boots are wildly impractical; the heel won't do for icy streets (or the cobbled ones in Canterbury, really), and once we reach a cold snap in October or November, I don't doubt I'll freeze in these, due to the cut-outs…but honestly, all my intentions of buying myself some sensible footwear evaporated the second I laid eyes on these.
And, at £24.99 (not including student discount, for anyone else who's making the most of their NUS card before they lose the luxury for good!), who can blame me for being totally suckered in?
The Cut Out Panel Buckle Boots are currently on sale for £22.49, and are available in both tan and black, from New Look stores, or on their website, here.
