This year my list of winter acquisitions will have to be very short. I am on a self imposed shopping ban because I have to save for an upcoming trip to London. The list includes a pair of boots. I hardly ever wear boots because I am rather small and I am very concerned about proportions. But it rains a lot in winter here (actually throughout the year) and a protective shoe is often required.

Este año mi lista de adquisiciones invernales va a tener que ser muy corta. Me he prohibido a mi misma comprar nada durante un tiempo porque tengo que ahorrar para un próximo viaje a Londres. Esa lista incluye un par de botas. Yo casi nunca llevo botas porque soy más bien de estatura pequeña y me preocupan mucho las proporciones. Pero aquí llueve mucho en invierno (en realidad todo el año) y muchas veces se hace necesario un calzado que proteja los pies.


At first, I had in mind a pair of classic Chelsea's, but when I saw the ones above from Free People, it was love at first sight. They are quite expensive for me, but I find them very versatile and timeless. Anyway, it makes no sense to continue dreaming about them since they don't ship to Spain. The search continues.

En un principio, había pensando en las clásicas Chelsea, pero vi éstas de Free People y fue amor a primera vista. Son bastante caras para mi, aunque me parecen muy versátiles y se podría decir que atemporales. Pero bueno, no tiene sentido que siga soñando con ellas porque no envían a España. La búsqueda continúa.

Hi darling-- it's been a while since I've been on your blog. Just wanted to say hello!

I'm trying to cut back on expenses, too, and like you, will be heading to London-- hopefully during fashion week.

Boots are a must this fall. I would like either a very tall or a very short pair.

Hola! como estas?encontre tu blog y al ver este post no me he podido resitir. Soy estilista y queria decirte que si eres bajita como tu dices y te preocupan las proporciones sera mejor que compres unas botas con tacon para que te estilicen la figura y de media caña puesto que un botin o una bota leggin te hara parecer mas bajita aun. Espero k te ayude en algo en la busqueda.

Un saludo,
Javier de Juanas.

Those boots are awesome!! Great find!

I think Doc martens are the perfect fall back shoe if your stuck on what to get! Check out ebay and im sure you will find a pair! I just found myself a cute floral pair! I now have 6 pairs! =)

I think they work with everything and any size =)

PS Love your blog =)

I have to lend all my paychecks this month to my dad this month...which means I'll be spending my savings if Topshop tortures me with beautiful things on their site! I hope you'll find a pair of gorgeous boots soon! xxoxoxo

wow those boots are gorgeous, I'm only looking for a pair of good boots this winter and some oversized knits, defo put them in my wish list.

and just a note to say that if you really want them, free people ship to the UK so I can send them to you if you like :)

I have such trouble with finding good boots, that I've essentially given up on it. I don't think I'm a boots girl, quite simply. I wish I could wear flats and Converse all through winter, but living in Sweden that is impossible!

Those boots aren't actually made by Free People (just sold on their website). They are made by a company called Bed Stu. You might be able to find them somewhere else that does ship internationally (or email the company to see if they sell anywhere in Spain?)

these are beautiful!
good luck on your search.
i was lucky enough to find a gorgeous vintage pair of tall, 80s slouch boots at a thrift store for about $1 usd in the middle of summer. i had them resoled by a cobbler for about $30 and they're absolutely perfect now.
just keep your eye out!

If you'd like to order clothes and shoes from US stores which generally don't ship internationally, you could use They can forward your items from the US to your address anywhere in the world. I have been using them and it is very useful.
