There's a look I love on other women that I struggle with...a dress, bare legs & ankle boots. I don't know whether it's my proportions (long body/shorter legs) or my reluctance to bare my legs but whatever it is, it just always feels a bit too exposed/clumpy/unflattering.
But this week, I've been forcing myself out of my comfort zone and with the lovely weather, the dress/ankle boot combination seemed like a good one to try.
Dress - Great Plains
Denim Jacket - Vero Moda (via Surfdome)
Boots - Seven Boot Lane (SS14)
Pendant - School Gate Style Shop
I liked it - I didn't love it....it just felt a bit yee-haw cowgirl...and I know that's probably the denim jacket but with other jackets, it wasn't really any better. BUT I wore it for the whole day and enjoyed an outfit that was an alternative to jeans. And...the bonus was when I put this picture on Instagram some chap called Mohammad asked me if I'd do some foot modelling for him as my feet (which you couldn't see in the picture anyway??) are beautiful. He asked me to PM him....the comment is still here on Instagram if you don't believe me!
Hope you're having a great weekend. I've just come home from the second and last recording session with the Gospel Choir for our Christmas CD. The venue was all decorated and we had mince pies in our coffee breaks....it's only October 4th!!
Before I go - I've got a sale in the shop at the moment - clearing out some end of lines to make way for more winter stock. Lots of lovely necklaces and scarves are really well reduced on this link - grab a bargain while you can. None of these lines will be repeated!
