Something happens to me in November, I get very very excited for shiny, sparkly, leather, furry and woolly cashmere-y things. None of this works for me in Summer, well obviously cashmere and summer don’t go hand in hand but I find leather and sparkle in summer are just too… garish. I prefer bohemian and floatier styles then. Perhaps its the darkness in winter which lets out the wilder side, or the fact that we can mix these showy fabrics with oversized warm cosy items to kind of counteract the OTT ones. Of course this time of year also brings Christmas and that is a big reason for getting sparkly and wearing super luxe fabrics which helps create a seriously major outfit. You can never look OTT at Christmas time…can you!?!
I have spotted a few A M A A A Z I N G pairs of ankle boots in sparkly glittery leather (hearts in my eyes) and I am definitely going to purchase a pair this winter. Even if I only have two months remaining of it, I’m going for it!
These combo’s make me want to say “simple, yet satisfying” that is what comes to mind (yes it’s a line from the Lion King, guess who I’ve been hanging out with).
Get your groove on girls
