As a student, money can evidently be pretty tight, and affording high quality items of clothing can be a real struggle and an uncommon occurrence. I am terrible for spending money I don't have on jeans and tees that I could definitely survive without, but there is something quite exhilarating about treating yourself to something you've been wanting for a while, and rushing to the front door when the delivery man drops off a parcel of goodies.
I have more recently struggled to find anything I like and when I have ordered things 9 times out of 10 I have returned them because they've just not been right. I think this is most probably due to the fact online stores and shops are preparing for their new spring arrivals, so the shelves are slightly sparse. But, I did find an absolute gem of a pair of heeled boots on ASOS a few weeks ago - yes of course they're ASOS, I'm addicted. SOS!
So these ankle boots are by the brand Office, which are a well known brand for shoes yet one I have never thought to buy from. I was scouring ASOS sale section and discovered these bad boys discounted from £75 to a cracking £24 - bargain. I have been on the hunt for a pair of black heeled ankle boots because I purchased a pair back in October which I have worn endlessly. The only problem I was having was that the perspex heel on them are a little too adventurous to wear on a day-to-day basis, well for me they are anyway. I wear these boots on almost every night out because they're just so comfortable and I never feel the urge or pain of needing to take them off half way through the night, so I really wanted a pair I could wear during the day time.
These boots are beautiful, in my opinion, and are perfect for 'jazzing up' a simple outfit during the day. They are not as comfortable as my ASOS ones, however they're stunning and so I'm pushing through to wear them in a little bit - don't mind if I do.

As displayed in this outfit ensemble, they look great with jeans, especially straight leg/mom/boyfriend jeans which I am loving so much at the moment. The buckle detail adds a little bit of an alternative edge to the boot, and I surprisingly love the patent shine on these. ASOS also had some other Office boots reduced if you are interested by the way, although I'm not sure what they have left in stock - definitely worth a look though.
Over the past week or so, I have been really struggling to stay motivated and to stop myself wallowing in bed watching Netflix and YouTube all day long (quick disclaimer: I have finally started watching Breaking Bad with George and my goodness I am hooked). But yeah, I've been feeling a little down and emosh - finding simple daily tasks challenging. This could just be an excuse for me being completely lazy and a typical student, but nonetheless, its been a long week. I am glad this week is coming to an end to be honest because I am excited to start fresh on Monday and attempt to be a lot more productive and pull myself together a bit haha. I think its more than ok to have off days, and maybe its a combination of this awful British weather and my laziness that has brought me to feel like shit lol. I hope you've all had a great week and done some cool stuff that has made the last 7 days extra special.
See you all next week guys, peace out.
