Linking to Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday
OK, I’m trying something else that’s new to me, heels and jeans but first let me say I’ve been raiding the Kid’s department (again) at Gap. This is a boy’s pure cotton check shirt I couldn’t resist because I really love the colours! Aside from the fact it’s well made with a good finish, the sleeves are the right length and it feels very comfortable. I’m hoping with time it’ll soften a bit but before then, I’ll just enjoy, no revel in the fresh crisp shirt feel 🙂
For the longest time I’ve resisted wearing heels except ankle boots with any kind of jeans. I never really wore jeans properly until literally last year and the idea of wearing high heels with them just didn’t register with me. Of course EVERYONE is doing it and so okay, okay I get it! Always late to the party, that’s me! I did try it with skinny jeans once here but didn’t feel it was me. I understand how high heels with skinny jeans would make your legs appear infinitely longer but when you don’t have skinny legs in the first place, adding vertiginous high heels feels
comical too much especially on a short person like me. What, you want me to do it anyway? For a laff? You’re ON! 🙂 Watch out for the post!
So, enter the kitten heel sling backs – they are heels, just low that’s all 🙂 These are an ancient pair by Pied A Terre that I thrifted for something like £1 years ago but never wore. I really like how they work with the bf jeans as a girly – they have bows on top – alternative to my recent brogue, loafer and slipper styles. The navy leather clutch is vintage Genny (I’ve treated her – see how she glows?), orange cuff and belt by Hermès. Apologies for the blue white skinny ankles (the only part of me that’s always truly skinny) – it’s been a long Winter!
Thanks for reading!
