Boot Season

Well hello there! Long time no see! Sorry about my brief break from blogging, I was struck down by a nasty virus and have been confined to my bedroom for god knows how long. I am SO relieved to be back in action and wearing something other than my ratty old PJs.

Before the dreaded virus struck I spent a day packing boxes and shuffling furniture around in preparation for our big house move in a few weeks (sad face). I was wearing gym clothes and sneakers for most of the day and maannnnnnn did it feel good. I forgot how it feels to wear shoes that don’t rub, pinch, ache, hurt or mutilate my feet in some way. Even my most comfortable ballet flats still give me little blisters on my toes if I walk too far in them, so wearing proper supportive running shoes with nice thick socks all day was absolute heaven. I tried to explain this to my male housemate and he just looked at me like I was a crazy person and asked why I would ever suffer wearing painful shoes…. Ummm I because the comfy ones don’t look as pretty?

This is one of the reasons I’m so pleased the weather has finally cooled down... it’s appropriate to wear boots again! These leather and suede ankle boots aren’t quite as comfy as my Nikes, but they are pretty close, plus I can coordinate my socks with my outfit which is pretty exciting.

Dress: Vinnies Claremont $12
Hat: Op Shop
Boots: Asos
Necklace: Good Sammies Myaree $2
Cuff: Opportunity Knocks $4


  1. Hope you feel better soon

    PS I love the hat.

  2. Glad you're feeling better! Your outfit looks great; I adore that hat ^____^ Shoes and I honestly have such a love/hate relationship. I love cute, pretty shoes, but I have terrible grandma feet so I mostly have to wear orthotic shoes ... which are generally the opposite of cute and pretty - _____ - At least we have boots and sneakers to rely upon!

    1. Totally agree Lisa! I've been eyeing off a pair of navy suede New Balance trainers to wear around the place when I want to be comy but look chic... very tempting!

  3. Good to hear you're feeling better - it's always a great feeling when you can finally emerge from the house and feel good enough to wear something other than pj's! I love the dress - and the co-ordinating socks! hehe ;)
