No, readers, your eyes do not deceive you: it’s officially Spring, and here I am in high boots and a turtleneck sweater. Woe is me!
Actually, the situation isn’t quite as dire as I’d imagined when I got dressed this morning, because when I got outside I discovered it wasn’t actually nearly as cold as it’s been up until now: I didn’t have to resort to the winter coat I’d brought along “just in case”, and there were even some moments of gorgeous sunshine – hence the sunglasses. A change is coming, folks. And even if it’s not coming to the weather, it’s most definitely coming to my wardrobe: I probably won’t have time for it this weekend, but at some point before the end of the month, I’m going to set aside some time for The Great Bi-Annual Wardrobe Switchover, and get all of my Spring/Summer stuff out of the attic. I realise that by tempting fate in this way, I will probably just guarantee us all some snow, so sorry about that, but I just can’t take any more winter. I keep looking at the photos of my fellow Challengettes, and other bloggers, all with bare legs and gorgeous, summery dresses, and I feel like there’s a party going on that I haven’t been invited to. Boo!
Anyway, now that I’ve got that quick bit of whining out of the way, here is Shoe Challenge 8, featuring my Topshop Barley 2 boots:
I’ve worn these boots almost constantly since I bought them. I actually can’t imagine how I’m going to cope NEXT winter, when I realise I’ve already eliminated my favourite boots from the challenge, and will have to try to force myself into all of those other pairs of boots which have been sadly neglected since these came along. Still, I’m hoping these will be the last pair of boots you’ll see me in for a while. We can but hope…
I have this ASOS skirt – or a variation of it – in four different colours now. You could say I’m a fan. Or, of course, you could just say I’m a shopaholic, your choice.
I discovered this little graffiti-covered amphitheatre when I was out running last year. Our town is full of odd little things like this, all tucked away where you’d least expect them. I don’t remember this one ever being used for anything, but then, I’ve only lived here for a few years, and I think this dates back to when the town was built, in the 60s.

And that, my friends, should hopefully be the last Shoe Challenge of this winter. Cross your fingers for me…
