cream and black booties



We had a dip in the temperatures, and some big rain clouds to boot (boom, boom) so it seemed a good time to road test my new booties. (Which, by the way, I am finding hard to say. It's just so cute. Like babies' shoes. Is shoe boots better?) Of course, Melbourne being what it is, the sun suddenly popped its head out and everything warmed up quite a lot. Still, I don't mind. I have a new found enthusiasm for another week or so of hot weather... and I'll share it soon!



Back to the booties... I wore them with a favourite black dress that I've had for years, which has pearls for buttons down the left side, and a knot tie up at the front. Red lips, red nails, red bag... and I'm done. I love my new booties!

Such a simple outfit yet so beautiful and strong! I love the dress, especially the little knotted front. And your booties are super cute so they suit the name booties!

Love everything about your outfit today! Gorgeous! I adore the red bag and red polish ;). It's all stunning. And your hair..... so shiny and bouncy. Do you use hot rollers? If so, what ones do you use and how does your hair not dry out?

In all the blogs I read, there are always amazing shoes from TARGET! I never find these types of shoes there. hump! I'll just have to keep on looking.

Helga said...

The whole look is utterly divine!! I'm envious of those new booties!

Esz said...

CUTE shoes! Are they current Target? I went into the city one the other week and there was nothing nice there at all. All icky and that place looks like a bomb hit it.

The dress is awesome too of course. On the hunt for winter dresses yet? My scope has widened to search for those now too but I'm much more fussy with winter clothes than summer ones.

Kim said...

Wonderful look, I love your shoes! :D

Great booties (you are bootilicious!)(sorry, bad Beyonce joke there!). I actually tried to get these at Target Chaddy a few weeks ago (inspired by you!) but they didn't have my size (which is 6, kind of small!), still you have inspired me yet again to seek out these treasures. A great post again, Maria x

Booties is definitely way too cute. Sounds like baby shoes. I'd go with shoe boots, and these shoe boots are incredible. You look great!
