Style Trial: Knee High Boots

Oh hey there guys!
It's a been a little while hasn't it!
Sorry about that - what with doing 12 hour shifts at work, some general life stress and some pretty non-outfit post kinda weather, I haven't really had a chance to take any snaps... but that doesn't mean that I haven't got lots to show you!
It's been a while since I did a style trial post so if you're new round these ends I'll keep it short and sweet: I basically buy something that I've previously felt weary or unsure of, and try my best to style it so I like it.
Today I'm bringing to you these knee high boots from New Look. They're everywhere at the moment - which I know they usually are at this time of year, but... I've always felt like they can be a bit.. (now hear me out here).. stripper-ish?
That's not to say that other people look like strippers in them.. I just mean.. I've always felt like I couldn't pull them off because I'd look like a stripper... or .. God. I don't even know how to make this sound any better.
Kat Slater? That's more what I mean I guess.
Anyway, take that as you will, and see what you think of my attempt:

  New Look Boots, Topshop Coat (sale), Primark Jumper

This is one of those looks that I'm still unsure of.. I'm wondering if perhaps the boots need to be even longer... a good old over-the-knee thing... I know.. who am I?! Kat? Kat you in there?
Anyway, I like the boots.. I'm just still not sure if I'm wearing them right, but I guess, as with most things, confidence goes a long way. I decided to wear them with this gigantic Primark jumper. I got it in about four sizes too big cause: sometimes I like to hide (read: TRY to hide) a belly full of Costa black forest hot chocolates and all of the galaxy bars.
The coat I'm wearing in this look is another one of those Topshop sale beauties that grace my blog. It was something ridiculous like £450 reduced to £15.
I know.
Pretty big deal that isn't it.
If it makes you feel any better.. it tends to do this weird thing where the black from the fur inside rubs off on anything light coloured I'm wearing underneath it.. including my arms...and hands.
Basically it makes me look a little like I don't wash.. which.. ain't really what I look for in a coat. Nonetheless, it's super comfy and warm and it looks pretty cool too.. and at that price? I guess I'm not complaining. 

Aside from buying all of the boots and jumpers - life recently has been a little strange. Firstly, because the other day I was featured on the Primark website, by the very lovely Ebony. (She writes a blog too and I think you should check it out here)((It's good))
 I've been working all of the weird hours and it honestly feels like I haven't eaten a meal at home or really even seen my bed. The hours that I haven't been working, I've been searching for jobs and ways to move away from Birmingham, so everything's a bit mental right now and all I want to do is sleep sleep sleep (& eat... always eat).
I've been obsessively watching Suits with the boy, (if you haven't seen it, I would like to take this opportunity to ask you WHY?) and I've been stuffing my face with shortbread biscuits despite being 'on a diet' cause 'look at all the rolls.'
Oh, and my phone broke, and then I had to pay £200 for basically the same phone. 
(Please note, the above word 'phone' was originally written as 'food' because seriously.. always thinking about food)

So - how do you guys style your knee-high boots?
Let a fella know in the comments below!




  1. Love this style trial idea! I'd say it's a great way to push yourself out of your style comfort-zone. Anyway, loving the outfit and the location for your photos too! Is it your garden? It makes for perfect background for style pics!
