The reason behind this post is simply because I had an absolute nightmare last week trying to find some decent winter boots to buy! Is it just me, or is it whenever you aren't looking to buy anything, you see everything that you like, a couple weeks later when you actually come to buy something you can't get hold of anything you want! With the sudden change in weather I think it is high time I put my open toe platforms back into the wardrobe ready for next summer and wack out the winter boots.. oh wait my boots from last winter are a disgraceful mess.
So, when it came to looking for some new ones, I literally just thought to myself, there is no way I am even going to bother looking in Topshop because the shoes are waaaaaay out of my price range, like seriously, £75 for boots? Nuh uh. In the end I managed to pick up some lovely snake skin chunky boots with a side zip from River Island for under £40! (Number 1 on my list). My friend (bad shopping influence and avid destroyer of my bank balance) also picked up some new winter boots, (number 2), some gorgeous platform Chelsea boots, honestly this style of boots are everywhere right now and are set to be so popular this season so grab a pair while you can! Unfortunately I can't as it would be wrong to buy a similar pair of boots as your friend, wouldn't it?...
I really do hope that if like me, you have been struggling to find some boots for the new season, that this list might help you out a little bit, or at least point you in the right direction! Honestly I think the places which have the best collections at the moment are New Look, River Island, Topshop and Ark so go have a look!
Have you bagged your new winter boots yet? What have you been looking for and have struggled to find on the high street recently? Let me know! :)
