Outfit | Lace Ups & Love Shoeaholics Carvela Boots

I want to start this post with a little apology. I haven't posted for almost a week which isn't like me at all but since I've started my new job, life has been a little bit hectic and blogging has unfortunately had to go down my list of priorities. Boo! However, I've been updating my Instagram every day (@kayleighjcouture) so make sure you come and follow me over there to see what I'm up to!

A couple of weeks ago I went to visit my good friend Em from Em Talks in Leeds and we had a little photoshoot so I thought I'd share one of the outfits I wore and my amazing new Carvela booties!

I'm pretty much obsessed with anything lace up at the moment so this bodysuit from Milk & Diamonds is up there with my favourite pieces of the moment. It's so flattering and can be worn with jeans / trousers or skirts. I paired it with one of Em's skirts here (Missguided I believe) and I think the black and white combo works well.

I teamed the top and skirt with my trusty Miss Selfridge leather jacket which I've had for a few years now - as much as I love it, I think I'm due an upgrade this year. If any of you know where I can get a nice leather jacket for a reasonable price, let me know in the comments below. I kept my accessories simple with my Rayban Aviators and Michael Kors Zip Top Tote bag. I've got so much wear out of both of these items this Summer - definitely essentials for me!

To finish the outfit off, I wore my beautiful new ankle boots from Love Shoeaholics. If you've not heard of this website before, you're seriously missing out as its fast becoming my go-to online store for shoe shopping. The website offers an amazing range of discounted designer shoes from well known brands including Carvela, Miss KG, Marc Jacobs, DKNY and Alexander Wang. Some of the shoes have up to 75% off RRP and if that wasn't good enough they often have fun Flash Sales, Payday Sales and Secret Sales too! 

For example, the Carvela 'Simone' boots I'm wearing here (also available here in tan) retail at £160 but you can get them from Love Shoeaholics for £79.99. How amazing?! Also, you may have seen me featuring these shoes a few times on my blog and Instagram and they're also by Carvela from Love Shoeaholics. They're honestly the comfiest shoes I've ever owned, they go with everything and I've worn them most days this Summer. They retail at £120 but only cost £49.00 from Love Shoeaholics. Make sure you're following them on Instagram too (@loveshoeaholics) to see what they have on offer and be up to date with their latest deals.

I just know I'll get loads of wear out of these boots in A/W - because they're black they'll go with virtually anything in my wardrobe and they'll look great paired with skinny jeans or skirts / shorts and playsuits. They're real leather too which is always a big bonus for me when it comes to footwear as I just know they'll last a lot longer than a cheaper pair and hold up in the UK's awful Winter weather conditions. As you can see, I'm a big fan! I'm also lusting after lots of the other shoes on the site - there's just so many to choose from!
