OUTFIT | #111

jumper: Zara; shirt (underneath), necklace: Topshop; skirt, boots: H&M

I'm going through a phase where I'm really into shoes. Around Christmas time I bought several pairs of boots and new shoes and I'm still getting around to wearing them all. The snow and bad weather meant I couldn't for a while but now it's (seemingly) nearing springtime, I figure this is the best time to break them all in. Maybe it's something I'm getting from my mother. She is a certified shoe queen and I'm always teasing her about having tons of shoes and never wearing them. Looks like the tables have turned. Soz, mum.

I like these brown H&M boots a lot, although I don't tend to wear a lot of brown. It's one of those colours that scares me a bit. There are so many rules about what you can and can't pair it with. No navy, no black, etc. Those are my staple colours. Brown makes me feel a bit lost at sea. I wanted to buy these in black too, since they're like those Acne Pistol boots I've coveted forever. But I didn't let myself, I thought the brown would be more of a challenge. Apparently I went for a brown theme on this particular day. Not that you can tell but I also wore some bronze-y eyeshadow and MAC 'Taupe' lipstick too. I think I was feeling a little 'blah'.

  1. I really like the boots. I feel the same way about brown, I still don't understand why you can't pair black with brown, I think it looks nice, it's all too confusing x

    1. I like it too! I think it's just one of those silly ~rules~ that makes no sense.
