Now there’s no denying that Alexa Chung is my queen, my ultimate style icon; even if our body shapes couldn’t be any different. So of course, her latest collaboration with AG Jeans had me at hello, a denim range which was completely up my street… but unfortunately completely out of my budget. With denim being a forefront fabric in my wardrobe this season, the hunt was on to find the person denim dress and denim skirt. I’m yet to get my hands on a skirt of my dreams yet, however, when I saw this Miss Selfridge dress hitting up the blogosphere, I knew it just had to be mine. Sold out online, it only made me want it more, and lo and behold, I finally tracked one down and practically ran to the cash desk. Last one left, and in my size. Fate.

I think I was a little ambitious when shooting these outfits, thinking a duster coat would suffice, but a few minutes into it I soon realised I was wrong (and very very cold) so decided to layer under a leather jacket, because everyone carries around two coats, right?! I’d seen a few of my favourites layering up coats, and I was always a little hesitant, but I needn’t be – I absolutely love how it looks! As the outfit was very focussed on mixing fabrics rather than colour, I couldn’t resist giving these leopard print boots an outing that wasn’t involving them hiding under jeans. I definitely see these being my all-time favourite boot this year, you know you’re on a winner when you’re excited to wear them as much as you can (that is, when it’s not raining). They’re already taking pride of place in my bedroom!
