TWO Shoe Challenge posts in one week?! Wow, I’m ON FIRE here, people!
Actually, I’m not really: I’m just still snowed in, and last night I discovered that my holiday next week has a good chance of being cancelled due to the Spanish air traffic control strikes, so I’m trying to distract myself with pretty shoes and dresses. Also, the Dressember challenge I’m taking part in is proving to be a good excuse to get through some more of my shoe collection as well as my dresses, so at least one good thing has come of this week!
These photos were actually taken for Dressember challenge (hence the Forever Amber watermarks), so apologies if you’re seeing them twice – I’d originally planned to wear a different pair of shoes with this dress, but figured I may as well make it a Shoe Challenge!
I bought these shoes in Matalan a couple of years ago: I think they were about £12, but I wear them a lot – they’re one of those dull-buy-useful styles which are so easy to throw on with anything. And they have dots and bows, so obviously they’d appeal to me. Of course, they’re not exactly the most practical footwear for the snow: most of our paths have been cleared now, though, and I’ll just be going from doorstep-car-doorstep today, so I should be fine. I’m putting my rubber boots in the car just in case, though!
I’m also just about to go and throw a cardigan over the top of this dress: elbow-length sleeves just don’t cut it in this weather!
Don’t worry, I don’t walk around like this in the snow, either: these were taken in the back garden, just to try and get some natural light – I was only outside for long enough to snap a few photos then run back in!
Bows make everything better…
Well, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t give you a bit of a twirl, would I?
