OOTD: COULD YOU CALL THIS A CHELSEA BOOT?




Top - H&M
Necklace attached to top - Claire's
Harem trousers - Zara
Boots - mum's(!)

Growing up, from the age of about 3, I spent my time on a livery yard of horses wearing a variety of brightly coloured jodhpurs, clashing coloured fleeces and not forgetting the all important jodhpur boots.

As I got older and school took it's time-consuming toll on me I ditched the horses and the collection of odd outfits that came with them. 

However recently, the appearance of these 'Chelsea boots' (leather boots with the traditional elastic side detail) within the fashion community and couldn't help myself from getting excited by the fact that I spent my childhood wandering about in these pretty little booties. 

After a manic search throughout my house I found myself a gorgeous pair of slightly heeled chelsea boots and squeezed my overgrown feet into them.  

I think the massive £80 plus I've saved on buying a brand new pair, is worth the future hundreds of blisters my feet will have to experience!
