My New (Comfy) Weekend Obsession - featuring YOUR DREAMCATCHER Grey Off Shoulder Top

You will have to forgive my freshly reddened (and therefore not quite dry and mildly fluffy) hair in the images, but I was lucky enough to be gifted a new top from the lovely people behind and I wanted to share with you just how wonderfully comfortable their clothing is. If you are after cosy clothes for after the gym or to slouch in after a hard long day at work, but you don't want to look like a scruffy mess (or worse still this guy) then you should really check out their range. This is good quality stretch cotton which is comfortable as well as looking pretty amazing. What's not to like?

Want to know the best thing about this top? I don't even own an iron. These pictures were taken straight out of the bag. This is my kind of loungewear... It even shows off the top of my sleeves and a hint of my skull brooch tattoo!

Here's the stock image from their website too.

So if you are in the market for some new scrubs as the darker days start to draw in then please give the Your Dreamcatcher range a look. Now all I need to do is get my hands on the gorgeously soft looking jogging bottoms to go with the top! :)

Enjoy the comfort and follow your dreams!

THE ROCK CHICK OUTFIT EDIT - featuring Sam Edelman Kenny Stiletto Booties in Black

The rather oddly named Kenny boots from Sam Edelman are a bit of a winner. (You can BUY THEM NOW right here).

The horn heels are reminiscent of McQueen, the buckles nod to the classic Vivienne Westwood pirate strap boots, and the overall look is one of extreme height and sex appeal. What's not to love?

They really are gorgeous from each and every angle.

Can you tell that I like them just a little bit? Sorry (not sorry) for the extreme close-up picture spammage - but they are so beautiful!

And now for how I want to style them...

THE PRACTICAL AND ETHICAL EDIT - featuring Toms Guatemalan Stripe Nepal Boots in Navy and Taupe

I think for Winter weekend wear these are a really cute alternative to UGGs if you've just had enough of them. Comfort and warmth are of a premium when it's cold, especially for those of us who face a commute every frosty morning, so these could even become your new early morning BFFs.

Bright-striped and shearling lined, this cozy yet striking boot celebrates winter in an upbeat and unique style.
Suede-woven upper
Shearling lining with fold-down collar
Moccasin-inspired whip stitching
Solid rubber outsole
With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Now you can wear your Toms all tear around and feel good every time you buy a new pair. Plus they have the bonus of being approximately half the cost of a pair of UGG boots, so maybe you should just buy both colours?

(Yes, I am really tempted)

THE IMPRACTICAL BUT GORGEOUSLY LUXE EDIT - Oscar de la Renta Black Camille Embellished Mesh Ankle Boots

Oscar de la Renta
Camille Embellished Mesh Ankle Boots - BUY THEM NOW

Obviously it's not escaped my attention that these particular little booties from Oscar De La Renta are not exactly casual daywear. I realise they will be useless in a hailstorm, and that you'd need to be thoroughly adept at dodging puddles while wearing them. They almost don't really constitute anything we've grown up thinking boots as even being. And do you know what? I really do not care. They are amaing. Take a look at them on the runway to see what I mean.

They make a refreshing change to 'just another pair of evening pumps', and I wish they could be mine. I have no reason to own them and nowhere to wear them. But when they look like that, does that really matter?

NEW SEASON ALERT - featuring Ugg Blayre II Foldover Cuff Suede Boot in Black

Buy them now

Aah, good old UGG boots. They've been a staple in many of our shoe closets for many a year by now, and I am sure I'm not alone when I say that I'm in no way ready to move on in terms of Winter footwear just yet. I do still have classic boots in fact (what I like to think of as the 'original UGGs') but I do always get a little bit excited when I see what new things they have come up with every year.

I had a pair of gorgeous deep brown Grandle boots as one of my Christmas presents last year which are simply amazing. UGGs meet biker boots? What's not to love. And these follow a very similar theme...

I think I may have to add a pair of these to the collection. I currently have about five pairs of UGGs I think. If you've never had a pair or if you just fancy a change from one of the classic styles, then why not give Blayre a try? And if you already own a pair and have anything to say about them then please let me know in the comments!
