Shoeperman was given a restaurant gift card for his birthday (which fell on our last day in Florida), so I got to benefit fromΒ itΒ too. I think I like Shoeperman’s birthdays more than I like my own…

These shoes are (or rather were – they’re a couple of years old now) New Look’s answer to Louboutin’s Gressimo pumps. I know, no one would be fooled. Hopefully I managed to distract everyone from my shoes, though, by being completely unable to walk up stairs in that skirt, which has no split, and is therefore a true “hobble” skirt. Good job I didn’t get chased by crazy robbers or anything on the way home.

(I did have a little too much wine with dinner, though, which resulted in the purchase of the most fabulous polka-dot playsuit in Asda on the way home. Yes, I just used the words “Asda”, “playsuit” and “fabulous” in the same sentence. And I’m not even embarrassed, either…)

My mother looked at these photos and instantly said, “Good grief, you need to weed that patio!” And she was right. I’m probably not going to bother, though. I hate gardening even more than I hate Crocs. I hate Crocs a lot.

I changed my hair after looking at the first set of photos. Personal style blogging: more useful than you’d think.

Can I just point out that I’m not quite as pale as I look in these photos. I mean, I’m almost as pale. But I think the flash was also doing a weird “bounce off the skin, make Amber look like one of the Undead” thing, too.

I AM actually totally monochrome in real life, other than my skirt, though. Seriously.

    • I would love to the own the originals – I actually tried on the green suede ones a couple of weeks ago when I was on holiday. They were amazing, but sadly way too expensive. One day πŸ™‚

  • Wow, this time your photos got to be even more beautiful than any other I have seen here! A big CONGRATULATIONS! Really looooovely photos! The face, the style, everything perfect! And I totally understand you about gardening. I also hate it! I love flowers, yes, a lot, but gardening… not for me! [And sorry, but I always ask(ed) people, why weed a garden? Weed is a plant too! But… I’m sure gardeners have a proper answer to this…]

    • Thank you πŸ™‚ I totally can’t tell the difference between flowers and weeds – when I do weed the garden, I tend to just pull things out randomly. Gardeners would be horrified, but I somehow just can’t make myself care about it…

  • Gorgeous pictures and when do we get to see the playsuit?
    And you know you can just get a weedkiller in a spray bottle for the patio, right?
    xx

    • Well, the playsuit is really for the beach/hot weather, so probably never!

      I did know about the weedkiller, but they always just grow back, and I don’t care enough to keep on buying products for it. My next house will have no garden!
