For the first time in weeks, it finally feels like Fall in Sydney. Brown leaves line the footpaths, the rain has been relentless, and the mercury has begun to drop – so much so that I’ve had to pull out my winter sweaters. It’s the kind of weather that makes you want to curl up on the couch with a hot cup of tea, catching up on TV and watching your favourite movies on repeat. Just the perfect kind of weather to take my new chelsea boots for a spin (currently on sale !!) – while it’s not raining of course.

As luck would have it, five minutes after I left the house sans umbrella and with my camera so casually slung over my shoulder, the tiny raindrops from the sky turned into nothing short of a downpour. Suffice to say, I was completely and utterly drenched by the time I made it home – which as far as I’m concerned is a good enough excuse to spend the rest of the afternoon bundled up indoors. As for the boots? You’ll be hard pressed to find me wearing anything else on my feet this winter, except for maybe.. a pair of gumboots.

Get the look:

    I’ve admired this dress for so long, but I’ve been unsure whether the style would work for me… So I’ve bought a similar H&M version to road test the style 🙂
    Love the boots!

      Ah that’s a good idea – I wasn’t too sure either, but I tried it on first and thought, may as well. I prefer to wear it with something (I’m not hugely keen on anything tight) like a jersey over top or tied at the waist.

    Ooh yes, those boots are gorgeous! But I am still obsessed with that sweater, it’s the perfect pattern 🙂

    This is probably the most perfect autumn outfit. It’s already so cold in Sydney, I don’t know how I’m going to survive winter! I definitely need more bulky knitted and leather pieces.

    I’m in love with those boots, been trying to find a new pair of casual (but with a heel) boots ever since my Rag & Bone Harrow boots died on me in Europe. I might need to try those Zimmermann boots! They look amazing on you.

      It’s certainly a lot colder than I was expecting although secretly hoping that I’ll be able to visit the beach this weekend. Ah and yes, these boots are so good – definitely try them on! 🙂
