Hiking Boots


Khaki Parka Coat - New Look
Cream Fur Cardigan - Desire Clothing
Orange Jumper - New Look
Beanie - Burton Mens
Hiking Boots* - Rocket Dog

My current go-to outfit for travelling to Uni and work. This parka coat gets renewed every year. I'm sorry to say it's not current stock but New Look never fail to disappoint when it comes to outerwear. I think this may be my 3rd Winter of wearing this coat but it's perfect for keeping me warm and dry. The huge deep pockets also come in handy for storing 3 pairs of gloves, hand warmers, tissues, lipbalm and loose change. After a few weeks I feel like I'm carrying saddlebags! 

These boots are far too practical compared to what I normal gravitate towards. But I love how comfy and sturdy they are, I can see them lasting a life time. They are Rocket Dog's 'Thunder Boot' and they also come in black and mocha. The little plaid cushion around the top is a nice touch. I feel like I should be hiking through forests and riding horses in these. 

Currently obsessed with Game of Thrones (just started season 2) and crafting bits and pieces whilst watching YouTube videos. I switch all my fairy lights on and light candles come 4pm it's that dark outside! But feeling the strain of Uni work, blogging and part-time work as everything is so busy right now. Shutting myself away and pretending I don't have a dissertation to write is not really useful. Oops!
