My Autumn/Winter Shoe Collection

I feel that it is something of an occupational hazard when working in a shoe shop that you end up buying a lot of shoes. I've worked for Office for around a year and a half now and I have developed quite the footwear collection so I thought I would do a little (massive) post showing you the shoes I've been rocking for these Autumn/Winter months!

Not the most weather appropriate shoes in the world but I love wearing my white Converse all year round. They are super comfy and literally go with anything! I think Converse always look better when they've got a bit scuffed up and are more worn looking so I am pretty happy with the stage mine are at. Just a little note for if your ordering Converse online or not trying them on, they come up pretty big so you're better off going down atleast a half size; I'm a 6.5 and I got a 6!

Studded Ankle Boots - River Island

One of my few pairs of shoes not actually from Office I have had these little studded biker boots for a good 2/3 years now and I can happily say they are my favourite boots OF ALL TIME. These have studs missing, scuffs all over and pretty much no insole left inside but I think they look better than the day I bought them! They are super slouchy and loose and look so nice with skinny jeans tucked in.

Lace Up Boots - Office

I bought these little cute lace up boots from Office last year. They are such buttery soft leather and a really nice change from the standard tan/black boots. 

Vans Authentic - Office

It took me a while to buy a pair of Vans for some reason. They were everywhere over Summer but I wasn't massively keen on any of the colours but as soon it hit Autumn I knew I had to get this Burgandy pair! They are so so comfy and make every outfit look casual but thought out. As with Converse, these come up quite big; I am a 6.5 and went for the 6!

This is the comfiest boot ever and really seems to dress up any outfit! They are a gorgeous black suede with a really 90's chunky heel; Me and the girls at work call them 'Clarissa' as in Clarissa explains it all? You'll have to be a true 90's kid to know what I'm on about ;) I'm not a big fan of these with jeans but they look so lovely with tights and dresses.

Leopard Studded Shoe - Urban Outfitters

I received loads of compliments on these after featuring them in a recent outfit post, you can see that here. They were a total bargain in the sale and I think leopard print is perfect for Autumn as it looks amazing with all the dark berry colours that are around. I love the tiny heel with the studded detail and they are really easy to style.

These are the latest addition to my shoe collection and were an absolute bargain after being reduced to just £25! They are clearly a total copy of the Jeffrey Campbell Lita's but what I really love about these is that they come a lot lower on the ankle so are much more flattering if you are concious about your legs like me. Im going to be wearing these with dresses and tights all through Autumn/Winter for Christmas parties as they are so comfy and give an 'edge' (cringe) to any outfit.

'Nikita' Boot - Office 

This is probably my most worn boot, hense why it is looking a little worse for wear! This is just the easiest little ankle boot to wear and literally goes with everything.

This is easily my most worn shoe as I wear it to work most days. It is so unbelievably comfy and the leather is incredibly soft. I love the fact the studs are black as I think they go with a lot more than if they were gold or silver and look a bit more expensive. These are getting so scruffy now but I love them that much I think I will buy another pair!

Slippers - Primark

It wouldn't be an Autumn/Winter post without a pair of slippers so these are the ones Im currently wearing and they were super cheap from Primark! They are lovely and soft inside and keep my feet toasty in this freezing cold house!

So they are the main shoes and boots I've been wearing so far this Autumn/Winter. Let me know if you've liked this post as I could do something similar for my heels/going out shoes and also a similar one when Spring/Summer comes around. A few of my friends and little baby Lily are coming round for a take away tonight so I better go clean this mess up...
