Boot Loving: My Customised ‘Skyline’ Timberlands


Every time I wear my Timberland boots or spy them in my shoe closet I can’t help but sing ‘these boots are made for walkin’, the Jessica Simpson version of course and dream that one day I will look as good in a pair of Daisy Duke tiny shorts as she did in the music video.

My poor music taste aside, there is something about the yellow Timberland boot that instantly makes me think of music, more hip hop than Jessica Simpson, but music stars over the years really have championed this fashion classic, which I still can’t believe is over 40 years old.

When I was a teenage, many, many years ago in the 1990s nearly every US hip hop star wore them, they were the boot to have, I sadly wasn’t cool enough for them so these beauties are my first ever pair and I love them. I have to add, I am probably still not cool enough to wear them, I am no Rihanna or Rita Ora, who have both been spotted sporting Timberlands, but they are so comfortable to wear with slouchy jeans and a jumper.

Just plain yellow they really have a masculine vibe, they are the footwear of choice by most builders, but with my personalised New York skyline, literally sketched on in a matter of minutes by illustrator Mister Millerchip with a couple of pens it instantly makes them more me, add in the black glittery laces and they are simply more girlie.

I promise an outfit post in the future, but for now just check out how incredible they look, the detail in the skyline complete with stars, and how by adding a pair of different coloured laces the boots look transformed.

Are you a fan of customising footwear? Like with my personalised Converse I think these beauties will become firm favourites.

Timberland boots can be a little like Marmite, you either love them or hate them, which side are you on?

**I was gifted my Timberland boots at The Apartment during LFW, but I chose the design and as always my opinion is my own**

My Style: Cats & Dogs Without The Rain


While visiting Columbia Road it seemed rude not to snap my outfit, but instead of a flower stall backdrop I decided that this beautiful floral mosaic wall that was on one of the side streets was much prettier.

It was milder last week than it is now so I was fine to wear this look without a huge winter jacket. I love skater skirts, they are just easy to wear, comfortable, and look great with a statement knit, a blazer jacket and biker boots, which to me equals weekend staple!!!

I know that I have been going crazy on the animal jumpers, I promise this will be the last one, as even though it is pretty it malted worse than my real cats, which is why no close up as the grey furry wool is all over my blazer.

To add a bit of warmth I paired my look with my dalmatian print scarf from New Look, which was a complete bargain at £7.99, and the cobalt colour meant I could get my trusty Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag out of storage – oh how I have missed this bag!!!

What are your go-to weekend staples?
