'Every girl needs a pair of beige boots'...that's what my mum said when she saw my new Asos boots, and I couldn't agree more. I first saw them in Grazia, and thought they would make the perfect summer alternative to my black Urban Outfitters ankle boots. When they arrived, I wasn't sure about them and had pretty much decided to return them. Any ankle boots without tights are not the easiest thing in the world to wear. If you get it wrong, it looks cheap and tacky. But if you get it right? You can end up looking like you've stepped straight out of Coachella, and what could be better than that?! It took me a few days to find the best clothes to go with the boots, but now that I have, I don't think i'll ever be taking them off! My advice is to go for loose and floaty clothes, and to keep it simple. I've also found another perfect combination involving my white Zadig & Voltaire skirt, so watch out for that one!
I just want to dedicate this post to my BFF Laura (aka Silver) who was an absolute angel to me on my birthday. One of her many gifts to me were the silver bangles you can see in the last photo.
I know that I promised a blog post including my birthday dress...let's just say that white wine plus red wine does NOT equal rose wine...it just equals dry-cleaning. As soon as it is back in my possession, I will do a belated party post!
So here is the first of two birthday blogs! Although my birthday is officially today, my party is tomorrow night and so i've been having a very chilled and relaxed day. The weather has been gorgeous and we went for a walk around University Parks in Oxford. What I wore pretty much reflects that feeling - a simple white denim cut-off mini, a t-shirt, converse and a MASSIVE hoodie (accessorised with a birthday badge obviously) - easy. Watch out for my next post on Saturday morning to see what I and everybody else wore to my party!
