Biker Boots with a Faux Leather Skirt



Man oh man do i love these Steve Madden Biker Boots. I chose them as i thought they would be versatile, and they have not disappointed. 
I've teamed them today (which was actually Sunday btw)with my trusty faux leather mini skirt, a chunky knit cardigan and a plain blouse. I loved the outcome. 
Because my lifestyle is pretty laid back, ie no high flying meetings or office attire, my day to day look is now very casual, which could mean i easily slip in to wearing joggers and a hoody territory. But i'm not going to let that happen. I love getting dressed every morning (saddo that i am). I see it as a perk of having to wake up.. that and coffee. God bless coffee.
What i love about these boots is how they dress-down the mini skirt. They take it from being overly dressed for a simple day out to the shops, to casual but put together, which is the look i now aim for most days.
Its funny how when life changes so does your wardrobe. I don't have much call for skyscrapper heels anymore, but i'm actually really happy with that. Me and my biker boots can conquer anything i'm sure.

I'm always acutely aware that when i wear a black bottom and a white top that i could be mistaken for a waitress, anyone else fear that? When walking through the harvester being accosted for some breaded mushrooms is always a tad embarrassing, hopefully the chunky salt and pepper coloured cardi detracts from the archetypal waitress attire.

I forgot how quickly it gets dark at this time of year. I turned to Salvatore at 3pm and said we'd better get a jiggle on for these photos. Within half an hour it was already grey and by 4.30 it was getting dark.. blogger woes ay? This time of year most certainly has its challenges doesn't it!
But least my biker boots are awesome.. wahahaha :)






The Triangular Outlines necklace is back in stock too ladies. It sold out after Beth wore it on her blog/IG but its back for now (limited stock) so i'd say snap it up whilst its available. 
Its super lovely and goes with so many outfits. Great over a crew neck sweater or dress or blouse.

  6. What thickness of tights are you wearing? I have 60 denier that I wear with those type of boots, but maybe thicker better? Opinions ladies?

    1. They are actually 100 denier, which is super thick, but they're so nice and warm on. I like my tights to be a jet black so no flesh can be seen through them (although i ahve worn others, these are my faves!)
      Hope that helps x x

    1. Thank you Aleczandra, thats exactly what i was going for, a contrast of chunky knited texture against the streamlined faux leather skirt. Sometimes i find adding texture rather than colour can be really fun!XX
