I don't think I've shown you these boots yet, they are handmade leather italian boots, and I bought them at -50% off in the sales: score! I'd been looking for a new pair of comfortable, low heeled, black leather boots for a while, and these ticked all the boxes. They fit my thin calves, and I love how the shaft ends just at the knee, which is a very flattering look on me, so prepare to see these often! My old pair of all purpose low heeled black leather boots had seen better days, which is not surprising as I've worn them regularly for 6 winters, so I felt like I needed to replace them for work and nice occasions.
As much as I love the skirt and its delicate mix of white and pale pink flowers on a quilted charcoal base, I still feel weirdly self conscious when wearing a sweet floral print like this. I hardly wear prints these days, and if I do I usually keep the rest of my outfit very minimal because I don't want to end up looking too twee. I'm almost 28 after all! HA sometimes I ask my boyfriend or his kids whether I'm 27 or 28 because I seriously have some issues remembering my age. Totally ridiculous. But anyhoo, in retrospect I'm not 100% sold on this outfit. I feel like the fluffy pom pom hat pushes it too far into twee territory to match my current style. Or my sweater should have matched the hat to make it all a bit more polished.
What do you think? Too twee for my style now, or am I just being ridiculous? Or option C: all of the above?
