Blogmas Day 9 - Outfit: Black Duster & Thigh High Boots

So lots of newie newness on todays blog post guys! I took a trip into Leeds recently with the mission to find some new 'staple' clothes - I own so many clothes (like a ridiculous amount) but when it comes to styling, I don't actually own that many transitional pieces, pieces I can wear with seven or eight different things. So that was my mission & all in all, I think I did pretty well.

I made the most of the Black Friday buzz (where did that come from btw) by picking up this black duster coat from Boohoo - I don't really do a great deal of internet shopping, I love the 'real life' retail experience too much... Having a day to yourself casually strolling round the shops, not forgetting to stop off for a couple of Costa breaks along the way. But when I saw this little beauty on offer for £25.00 I couldn't resist & surprisingly it's really really good quality. I'm going to get so much wear out of it.
Flat thigh high boots are something I've been after for a while! I always struggle though with having really skinny, bird like legs that I can never find boots to fit. My dad always said to me 'last time I saw legs like that they were hanging out of a bids nest'... Thanks dad! But these are ace! They fit like an absolute dream - They're so so comfy & I find because they're flat they're really flattering.
I'm also wearing a whole host of other dark grey & black clothing - I love this muted look, I think it's very VB & super duper stylish. I've picked up a few bits from Primark recently including the jumper & dropped hem dress - Both bargains of course.

What do you think of todays look? I think I've done really well with picking up some transitional pieces & some bargains - Okay maybe not the boots. But still! 
Do you also prefer the 'real life' shopping experience over internet shopping?

Thanks so much for reading. Lots of love.
