After living for so long without being able to find any leather boots that fitted me, the fact that I now own a pair brings a smile to me face every day.
It also means that I feel able to wear skirts and dresses that I wouldn't want to wear with just tights and shoes. Also means I can wear ultra comfy leggings and thick warm socks without discovery (not a good look with ballet flats).
The outfit I have chosen is one that I was complimented on by a neighbour of mine. She said that she saw me one day wearing it and was like 'WOW! I love the boots and skirt!'. It was the nicest feeling. People have said nice things about my jewellery (a bit of an obsession of mine) but as a fat girl living with thin friends and work colleagues I don't often get things said about the clothes that I wear. I sometimes get told 'ooh that's flattering', but it's not really a compliment that thrills the heart
So, anyway. This is me wearing boots. They are from Evans, as is the skirt (a season or so ago on sale). The black under top is from H&M and cardi thing is from New Zealand (Max brand - only thing in the store that ever fitted me I think). Earrings are a new buy and from New Look, as is the ring. Scarf also H&M. Rocking the stripes and spots :)
