puss in boots

I think these ASOS Academy boots fall into ugly/awesome territory. Hey, I think we could even class this whole outfit as ugly awesome though! I bought these recently as I wanted a new pair of AW boots as mine have started to be pretty worn down. I'm looking at you Topshop Alvins! They are super clompy and feel dare I say it… a little like orthopaedic corrective boots. But they are so nice. I really like how grungy they feel without being too out there. Just a simple plain black boot with bags of character. While they aren't leather, they do have a good solid heel which I think would hold up in the colder months! Super cosy lining, adequate heel, grungy, comfy and most importantly easy to wear. One big thumbs up for me with these boots.  Best part about the boots? They are a cool £35, With an ASOS discount code thats floating around at the moment (CFDFECFC9825 for 15%) they make them a perfect bargain purchase for winter.

I also bought this dress as a bit of a joke as Im currently in the process of trying to decide if Im adult enough to get a pet. I've nearly taken home two but I keep chickening out and worrying about the future. I've been toying with the idea of getting a cat for over a year now and I still cant 100% commit. Not because I don't think I could look after it, I just worry about my life and where I'll be in 5/10 years time and if I can realistically keep a cat depending on what happens. I really don't want to be one of those people that gets a pet, moves to a different country and has to rehome it. Sigh. #petproblems.

  1. I think you just stole my afternoon and half my pay cheque with that ASOS code... thanks though there's loads I need!

    That dress is ACE, reminds me of my Abandon Ship leggings that I really need to do a post on asap.

  6. I love the dress! How's your hair? Do you not like it? Haven't seen any pictures since you've had it done xx

  7. Its really good that you are thinking like that with a pet. I too hate when people get rid of a pet because it isnt convenient- to me they are like family members!

    However, the good news is that if you realise that you CAN take in a pet then you are 100% responsible enough to be an owner. Thinking of the long term proves that :)

    Remember to choose a good and reputable breeder if you want a purebred and rescue if not- there are plenty of cats and kittens going :)!

  22. I love that dress. Kitty chic! Hah. I've always wanted a pet of my own as well. The time may never be "right", so you might as well get a pet once you feel you are ready.

  34. What a cuuute dress !

    Take your time to get a pet. I got my kitty 2 years ago, I was with my boyfriend since a lot of years and we didn't travel a lot so he accepted. But now I'm single with my cat and want to travel a lot (I hope to spend 1 year in New Zealand for example) and that breaks my heart thinking I'll have to let my cat to my parents.

  60. What size did you get those boots in? I'm usually size 3, but they're out of stock in every size but 2, so I got them in 2! Just want to know if they come big or small or true to size? Thanks!
