Glasses, Coheed and Serious Boot Lust!

I picked up my new spectacles from the opticians today.

And I rejoiced that it was finally chilly enough to wear my favourite sweater.  You know, the only one I ever seem to be wearing; every time I get the urge to post a picture on my blog, I'm wearing this little red thrifted beauty.

Anyway, I know what you're thinking.  New glasses?  Those look exactly the same as the last pair!  You're not far wrong - I decided a couple of years back that this was the shape and style that suited me best, that felt the most comfortable.  My old glasses were dark blue with a green inside.  These new glasses are dark brown with, you guessed it, a green inside!  They are super comfortable, although when I put them on my vision went all blurry because the strength of the lenses has been significantly increased {yay for going blinder...-sigh-} It's easier to see now, everything is wonderfully clear (^_^)

My favourite ever band, Coheed and Cambria, are coming out with a new album next month [part one of two, woohoo!] and because I'm a huge fangirl and ordered the limited edition deluxe boxset on the day it came out (which means I get a certificate signed by the band and my name in it!) I ~also~ get access to the latest releases, behind the scenes dealies and lots of lovely stuff.  So imagine my delight when I not only found out that Coheed had released their first single from this album, but I could download it too!  And lemme tell you...I'm addicted to this band and to the lead singer's voice.  Here is the Youtube video so you can have a listen:

Love love love.

I've been really, really wanting a pair of ankle boots lately.  I've got cute flats and a couple of pairs of knee-high boots that I adore but nothing sort of inbetween-y that would be perfect for autumn.  I want something really flexible; I want to wear them with skirts, dresses and tucked in skinny jeans, I want them to be waterproof -and- I want them to be easy to get on and off {go zips!}  Here are a few of the boots I've been looking at and seriously wanting.

Okay, so the last pair aren't exactly waterproof but look how pretty they are!  If they were black, leather and in my size I would snap those beauties up!

I hope you're all having a great week and looking forward to your weekends!  Fingers crossed I've actually got most of Saturday -and- Sunday away from work, which would be my first ~mostly~ free weekend since my holiday in July...Yikes.  Thanks for stopping by!
