YESSSS. I've been waiting for these shoes forever!! :D So excited to wear them! Of course, it was 90 degrees the day after I got them so I had to wait for the weather to chill out a bit before rocking them! :) Anyway, up top is basically what I've been wearing all weekend. It's been HOT, so I've been lazing around in loose tanks/tops and shorts all day, lol. Not much to photograph! :P

Anyway, these ankle boots are surprisingly comfortable given their height (5.75 inches!), but as I found with the other pair I purchased from Topshop, they run on the small side. These UK 8's are supposed to be a US10.5 and my 10W feet are definitely snug. So hot though. I can't wait to wear these with tights and dark skinnies when the weather is cold again! :D

OOOH, and to be totally off-topic, it's Marine week in Boston! =X Love me some men in uniform, LOL. The bf already gave me permission to go check them out! hahaha If you're around, go check them out at Gov't Center--they have big tanks and trucks and a really big gun thingy on display! lol. Plus, the guys are all really nice and chatty--you can tell they really know their stuff and like to talk about it! Doesn't hurt that they're really cute, too. ;)


Alrighty, I need to step away from the computer so I stop looking at the Evans and Asos websites...and Etsy! I'm pretty sure if I can't control myself, I'm going to be buying this soon (in gunmetal)...


Just sayin'. It's already in my shopping cart. Someone stop me.

  31. Hi, this is my first time to your blog. A lot of the stuff you get is H&M and I'm just wondering what size it is and are you buying in the US or UK? I'm a size 16 and I figured the stuff in their US store isn't going to fit me. Thanks so much! I love your style!
