red knee high boots, vintage black and red poppy dress
So I said I'd be back this week with meatier posts... ha! If only. I've been waylaid; first by sanding our newly revealed floorboards, for which I wore an enormous pair of dungarees – which I must admit were very comfortable and almost got a post of their own, despite – or perhaps because of – the fact they were clearly made for a larger-than-life Super Mario.
And then I got flu. Again. FFFUUUUUUUU! Rawr! Coooouugh. Zzzzzz...
I always admire blogs where people don't dwell on getting sniffles, so I'll leave it there, and instead do a little post on what I was wearing last week, when we were still having that warm spell.
I got these red knee high boots about a decade ago – such a long time. They are one of those clothing items that show that no matter how your style might evolve over the years, there might just be some things in there that stays the same. That is definitely true for me. I have a few pieces I got in my late teens and early twenties that I love now just as much as I did then. Sometimes more so.
Black floral prints in winter are another favourite of mine. I don't think I could get enough of them. And I really love this 70s-does-30s dress. I can't believe I left it behind at the op shop, and had to go back! Come to think of it, I was getting over sniffles at the time... But look! I remembered to snap the sleeves this time!
