Yes, you may well be surprised to learn that these high heeled boots are indeed comfortable enough to wear all day long, but no-one was more surprised than me! As I was gathering the elements of this outfit together, I knew I needed to wear boots as the weather was forecast to go downhill over the course of the day, ending with rain by mid-afternoon. After a bit of a rummage I remembered a couple of boot boxes at the bottom of my wardrobe and lo, here were these brand new beauties! The colour is perfect for the ensemble, but I can't for the life of me remember when I bought them or why they've never been worn. I seem to recall they came from TK Maxx, but goodness knows how many years ago that was. The fact is, when I tried them on, I had a true Cinderella moment as they fit perfectly!
Just as I'm thrusting my hand into my pockets here comes a frisky little sea breeze!
I'm not a huge fan of brown, but by adding the yellow silk blouse and bright orange belt, I think the overall look is more effective than if I'd gone all tonal with creams and beige for instance. I know women who look so elegant and understated in that kind of brown/beige palette. Personally, I use the impact of pattern clashing, bold colours, frills and generally flamboyant dressing to distract the eye from my short comings. I know we're none of us a good judge of ourselves, but it's all about playing to our strengths and I think I know mine.
