These outfit posts are getting longer and longer, aren’t they? This is what happens when I make Dave go out with me, we end up wandering around for ages taking photos of everything. I hope you don’t mind, they are all different! I really don’t want to become one of those bloggers posting multiple very similar images everyone always complains about.
I really wanted to wear this dress again. I originally bought it for our OAP themed ’60th birthday’ party, and have worn it a few times since, but never in a very interesting way. Brown is not something I really know what to do with in terms of colours, so I just wore it on its own or with black in the past. But for this, I made myself try something different and paired it with green, and I think it works.
The other thing of note in this outfit is the boots, and it’s not in a good way. They are from camper, and they look great, but they are SO uncomfortable. Honestly, I can’t quite get my head round what is wrong with them (I have (had) four other pairs of camper boots that were all fine) but they are killing. There’s a seam or something that rubs at the back of my heel/ankle that creates huge horrible blisters. Dave got me them for my Christmas, so I feel I should persist. I’ve slathered the offending area in Vaseline to soften up the leather and I wear them every now and then in the hope that they’ll eventually break in, but so far no luck. I wore the boots for maybe 45 minutes with this outfit, and I’ve got giant water filled blisters. If I’d worn them any longer I would have burst the blisters and so I changed into my brown granny style booties. If anyone has any other magical idea how I can get these boots to be wearable, please shout!
