This outfit was made significantly better by the fact that I had a nurses appointment yesterday. I was going to just wear the dress and the tank top/sweater vest with these green shoes. But then I remembered that I had this nurses appointment and I was going to have to walk there (well, I didn’t have to, I could have got the bus, but I like walking and don’t like spending £1.20 needlessly). So I decided on these campers, which have the red laces. And then of course I had to add more red to keep my matching OCD happy, and so I ended up with this, which is much better than a simple green and brown thing, don’t you think.
Incidentally, I’m going off camper. The rubber soles are really walked off, and the leather is beginning to show through at the edge. The top of the shoe is in great condition, so I would love to get them resoled, but you can’t! The rubber is sewn on, and apparently it’s not possible to simply stick a new layer on top. Unless anyone has any different experiences? This is a deal breaker for me, I’m not willing to spend that much on shoes if they’re not going to last, no matter how comfy and pretty!
