Bright winter colours (and Rocket Dog boots)

It’s chilly out kids! (Sunny, but ‘taters.) And I thought I’d mark what feels like the first day of autumn proper with some typically eye-searing fashion…

I don’t really do “subtle” when it comes to clothes (as well you know) and I popped this outfit together this a.m. to (hopefully) encourage you to be a tad bolder this season.

Instead of reaching for the black and beige, create a riot of colour – think fireworks and autumn leaves and crisp, frosty mornings when the blue skies pop against the changing landscape (God, that was deep).

I also promised to devote more of a post to the Rocket Dog Western-inspired Satire boots I was kindly sent in bright red.

I’m a sucker for cowgirl chic – and we’ve established that I adore big colour – so these are the perfect winter accessory. I’ve already worn them with jeans and dresses and I think they work brilliantly with the JW Anderson for Topshop quilted midi skirt I’m wearing today.

All dressed up for a chilly day: Satire boots by Rocket Dog (£64.99), JW Anderson for Topshop skirt (past season), floral 3D jumper by Topshop (£48), scarf by Zara (I think! – past season)

You can also buy these (affordable) boots in in porter grey, porter tan and slick black – but I urge you to consider pillar box red. Even if you are a fan of wearing black dresses, jeans and coats in the autumn/winter, the brightest version of these boots is the perfect way to add an element of interest and a splash of fun.

And, best of all, they are soooo soft and comfy you can parade the magical, leaf-strewn streets (my inner poet is off again) for miles and miles.

These boots WERE made for walking

With thanks to Rocket Dog
