Or “look at my new bargain Zara boots”! I tried a cream-based outfit last week, which I liked, but, until now, I didn’t have the right boots to go completely pale. I have nude pointed flats for warm weather, but no nude boots. Sad face for me.
HOWEVER, I did go in to Zara last Friday, and I saw these boots, reduced all the way down to £13. Seriously, from £80 to £13. Given that there were a few pairs left, they are clearly not to everyone’s taste. However, they are a lovely colour and the heel is a manageable height for me.
Here I am, wearing them today for the first time, about to apply Band Aids to where they rub my lower leg. Only on the left leg – perhaps I am slightly crooked, with a slight lean? I neither know nor care, but I WILL be applying Band Aids.
Outfit: Cream wool coat from Australia | Cream wool mix roll neck from Zara | TopShop Baxter mid blue skinny jeans | Zara nude / taupe leather ankle boots | Clarks “tribute” to Anya’s Gracie bag, called the Trapeze, from a couple of years ago.
While I was at Zara, I couldn’t resist trying the lace dress on. I wasn’t going to buy it, but its both sexy and feminine – I knew I would be quite upset if it sold out before I had a chance to buy it. Its happened to me quite a few times, with Zara items.
The dress is quite a small cut, so its almost body con around my middle, in a size Medium. I have put on a bit of weight around old tum-tum, but its still a small cut. I won’t be wearing it until warmer weather, and will cease and desist from regular chocolate eating until then. Well, as much as possible.
Look at the pretty, slightly fuller sleeves, and the slightly fuller skirt makes it such a fresh take on the standard lace dress. So Dolce. So lovely.
I’m planning on wearing the dress with some fake tan (obviously!) and these strappy Next sandals (my first Next purchase in about 15 years!), which I haven’t gone and seen in real life, yet, but have high hopes for:
As always, I shall report back once I have tried them on. Hope you are all enjoying the beautiful, cheery sunshine.
