Wednesday wishlist: My pick of the best Chelsea boots

Sadly, this week I’ve noticed that my old faithful pair of Chelsea boots, that I’ve literally worn to death, are finally falling apart (the weather in London certainly hasn’t helped), so I’m on the hunt for a new, sturdier, pair to take me through this horrible autumnal weather. So here goes for this week’s Wednesday wishlist.

Flora boot, £110, Dr Martens

Flora boots in cherry red, £110, Dr Martens

I first saw this lovely pair of boots in the Cardiff Dr Martens shop a couple of weeks ago and instantly fell in love. Then, a couple of days ago, I saw a woman wearing them and now I absolutely want them. They’ll go well with dresses and jeans and are definitely sturdy, so I won’t need to worry about rain seeping into them.

Cadogan Chelsea boot in oxblood, £215, Russell & Bromley

Next up are these beauties, which are a bit on the pricier side, but still a lovely pair nonetheless. Anyone who knows me knows I have a thing for classic shoes and I have loved Russell & Bromley’s brogues for a little while now. But for the autumn, these brogue style Chelsea boots will do the trick nicely, plus they come in many different colours, although I clearly have a thing for oxblood at the moment.

Finally, I’ve also been lusting after these boots which, let’s face it, are much more within my budget. The colour is drawing me in once again and I really like the chunkier sole. And, best of all, because of their price I can buy them in black too.

What’s on your wishlist this week? I’d love to know.

Wednesday wishlist

This week, I’m channelling autumn. I love everything about this season; the crunchy leaves underneath our feet, the colder nip in the air, snuggling up to scarves when we venture outside, the autumnal smell in the air, a roaring fire.

Red tartan blanket scarf, £15, River Island

One way I can tell I’m getting excited about autumn is that I start dreaming of wearing tartan. One place I always think of when searching for my new tartan piece is River Island. The shop has an endless supply of plaid pieces come this time of year and what better way to prepare for autumn than with this beauty of a blanket scarf? I feel a shopping trip coming up.

Lille ankle boots, £89, Jones

Next up, of course, is a sturdy, yet lovely pair of boots. I literally live in boots in autumn and winter and, sadly, my current chelsea boots are just about to give up the ghost. I was in Bath at the weekend and I saw these and, knowing my love of a classic pair of footwear, it has proven hard not to buy them. These ones are from Jones, a company that I first discovered while at uni. Although a little pricey, you can’t beat the quality of their shoes and really, isn’t it worth investing in a decent pair of boots? Can you tell I’m trying to convince myself?

And finally, one of the must-have items for this colder weather is a cosy jumper and this raspberry coloured one, from Toast, would make the perfect addition to an autumn wardrobe. I’ve loved this colour for as long as I can remember and, as well as a mustard coloured jumper, this piece will be going on my wishlist. Plus, it can be worn with almost anything as the colour is so versatile.

What’s on your wishlist this week? Have you embraced the colder weather yet?
