Topshop ACHEIVE Boots

(apologies for the baggy leggings - not a good look!) ACHEIVE Elastic Side Boots
After seven months of doing 6 mile treks every day in my beloved £15 Primark boots, it has come to the end of the road due to a giant hole in the soles which have not been particularly useful with the current rainy days we've been having in the UK. Cue immediately drenched socks and soggy feet - not nice for a full day of college!

Anyway, new shoes were therefore a necessity so I spotted these boots on the Topshop website and knew I had to grab them straight away. At £75 however, I was hesitant. In an ideal world I would have bought the AMBUSH boots from Topshop's AW11 collection and my feet would look fabulous forever but I think these are a great alternative. They do have a slight heel on them and although I'm a bit like Bambi in heels, I can happily tell you that they are very comfortable to walk in, so fingers crossed I'll be able to walk miles every day in them!
They're a very flattering cut and shape I find and will definitely be great transition boots going into Summer (whenever it arrives). I think they'll look great with anything: hot pants; floaty skirts; pretty summer dresses and playsuits. Alternatively, in the Autumn and Winter I will no doubt be teaming these boots with my wardrobe staple - leggings! Jeans or tights will go perfectly with them too, as they're such versatile boots. Of course, at their extortionate price I would like to claim that these are in fact an investment buy! There's no way I'll be able to afford boots like these come AW12 when I'll be living as a University student, clutching onto my pennies for dear life!

I hope you're all having a fabulous week so far. This morning I had my French AS Oral retake which I hope went ok... I had a bit of déjà vu however as we had pretty much the exact same conversation as last year! We discussed Lady Gaga's influence on young people's lives... my favourite topic! Fingers crossed I did ok otherwise. Now I have less than a month until the rest of my A-Level exams so no doubt I'll be a busy bee revising hard for them, hoping I'll have done enough to get into Uni.
What are your plans for the rest of the week? And let me know your thoughts about the boots in the comments!
