277 days to go: Little Black Boots

Check out these fantastic boots I picked up from the post office this morning. I won them for £7.00 on eBay. They are from Zara and a lovely patent leather. AND they possess that perfect mix of style, height and comfort.
I may well sleep in these tonight.
The boots determined what I was going to wear today.
The turquoise M&S dress (eBay) looks great with black.
The t-shirt is from Primark, the belt is a year old and from Wallis.
The necklace (again) is from Accessorise, the tights from Tesco and the bangle is my daughter's ( a holiday gift from my mum and dad).
The only problem is the new to me clothes need to make some memories before they will become true treasures like yesterday's cardigan.
I wore that cardigan to La Manga for a great couple's holidays for my husband's 40th birthday (2005). I also wore it to one of the best Christmas parties ever at my friend Joy's when we sang Karaoke until the early hours (2006). In 2007 I wore it to a business meeting when one of the high-powered lawyers I was writing a press release about whispered "I love that cardigan" when the po-faced partner left the room.

Those books are awesome -- and what a huge treat that they fit AND they are comfortable. That's like the icing on the cake!

You are really suiting that turquoise. It looks great with black. I wear turquoise a lot with chocolate brown and it looks fab too and in the summer it is stunning with white. A very versatile colour. And so you!

Thanks Heather and Michelle. I didn't sleep in them by the way!

see you there! said...

Love the dress. I'm amazed that you can buy shoes/boots without trying them on first and have them fit with comfort. Good outfit!

Hi Darla
I think the secret about shoes/boots buying online is to only select brands you are familiar with the sizing system.

I love this outfit! You look great in turquoise - wear it with brown too, and pop it with orange or red for major impact.

The boots are amazing! What a deal.
