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.

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

It’s Wednesday again and it’s time to talk about what has made my wishlist this week.

Orla Kiely dress, £52.50, People Tree

Orla Kiely dress, £52.50, People Tree

Dresses are my downfall, I swear, and having been in love with the People Tree brand for years, their collection of designer pieces really make me swoon. This Orla Kiely collab is one of my current faves and, best of all, it has been reduced in price within the last week. What better excuse do you need to snap it up? If you’re after another though, the print is made up of dancing girls, neatly hidden so that you have to take a closer look to see them. If you love Orla’s designs as much as I do, then this is the dress for you.

Saltwater sandals, £49.00, Toast

Saltwater sandals, £49.00, Toast

I know everyone has been talking about these Saltwater sandals lately, but with all the lovely weather we’ve been having, I’ve been craving a pair of sturdy-but-cute sandals and, after attending the Toast sale at the weekend (more on that coming soon), I saw a few pairs of the sandals. Unfortunately, there were none in my size and so I had to go way empty handed, but these exclusive-to-Toast purple Saltwaters will brighten up any summery outfits perfectly and also add a pop of colour to the below skirt.

New Look lace skirt, £39.99, ASOS

New Look lace skirt, £39.99, ASOS

This New Look lace skirt is perfect for covering up those white (or sunburnt) summer legs, great for evenings spent walking along the beach and would even be ideal for a Sunday afternoon stroll. I am a big fan of white right now (probably due to Wimbledon recently taking over my life), although sadly I don’t have the tan to make it look awesome, but that won’t stop me from wearing it. Although a white top would look great teamed with the skirt, a colourful cami would also suit it well, don’t you think?

I’ve spent a bit too much money on clothes in the past week, so sadly I probably won’t be able to purchase any of these for a few weeks at least. However, that means I do have a few posts to share with you in the future. Please let me know if you like these types of posts. And have a good week!
