Valentine's Day Outfit Wishlist

Women's Collared Shift Dress - Mary Jane Fashion // Structured Tote Bag - River Island // Cheap High Heel Shoe Range - Chelsea Boots - Mary Jane Fashion

Valentine's day is just around the corner and it's the perfect excuse to get dressed up and head out, whether you're single or in a relationship! It can be tricky to get your Valentine's outfit right, you don't want to look too dressy but you don't want to look like you haven't made an effort either. 

This tartan shift dress from Mary Jane Fashion is the perfect mix of the two; on trend, simple, yet still makes an impact. I would match the black leather collar on the dress with a pair of heeled leather chelsea boots, plus a black structured bag to complete the outfit. This would be a great outfit for a meal out with a date, or just for drinks at a bar with friends.

Do you have any plans for this Valentine's Day? I'm not sure what I'm going to be up to yet, I'll be back in the UK for a short while before Josh and I head off to Thailand for 8 weeks - we might wait and celebrate Valentine's and our 3 year anniversary when we're out there! x

2013 in outfits...

I realise how late this post is, but I made the image (badly... and somehow ended up with blurred images?!) about a month ago now in preparation for the new year. Time has flown by since then and I haven't ended up posting it yet oops!

To see the full outfit posts click on the month below:

My outfits aren't really the same anymore, I've mainly been wearing my boarding outfit in the daytimes then casual jeans and tops if I'm out in the evening. You may or may not have seen mine and Josh's travel blog but there's been a bit of a change, we're no longer living and working in Switzerland but we've moved over to Meribel in France :) you can read the full reasons etc here if you like! 

Which is your favourite outfit from 2013? x

Hi-Tec St Anton snow boots - after 1 month of wear

So you may remember seeing a post about my initial thoughts on the Hi-Tec St. Anton 200 waterproof snow boots, well since I've been out in The Alps I've had more time to test these out and they have definitely come in very handy!

My initial thoughts on the boots were correct, these boots are sturdy enough to put up with ice, snow and even the slippy floors of apres bars! The soles are great and will grip anything. They're also incredibly warm which is essential. I stupidly went out to a street party on New Year's Eve in a pair of Vans trainers, I genuinely thought I'd got frostbite in a couple of toes! I would really recommend investing in a good pair of boots like these for a trip out to a ski resort, both for daytime wear and evening. It might seem odd if you haven't been to a ski resort bar before, but you don't really look out of place wearing something like this, everyone is either still wearing their ski clothes and boots, or snow boots like this! I really like the fur on these boots, it makes them a little less like wearing hiking boots to a bar!   

Overall I really would recommend these boots to anyone looking to buy, they really do stand up to the cold, icy and snowy conditions of a ski resort! They've been worn almost every day since I've been out and there's a few small marks which is to be expected (I'm almost certain these would wipe off too), but other than that there's very little wear and tear.

Have you been out to a ski resort? What footwear did you choose? x
