something true we don't know about?

May Fashion Blogger Challenge Day 2: You have the most....
I suppose this could only be shoes for me, without question, right? I had grand plans to actually take a picture of ALL the shoes I owned, but in the end I just put out the ones which don't have their own boxes, and therefore usually live in a heap in the living room.. Those which do have boxes are stacked away, either above the wardrobes (Ihaven't counted those) or in the kitchen cupboards (46 pairs: 45 Irregular Choice, 1 Poetic Licence), and flats live in the pink plastic drawers. I also have a few pairs of trainers / converse, which live in the cupboard under the kitchen sink, along with camping stuff as that's when I would usually wear them, and three pairs of wellies. There are also a lot of pairs of boots, which tend to stack under one of the dress rails in the wardrobe room, and various other pairs stashed around, in boxes under the sofas etc. It would be really nice to make a list of them all, as there are some pairs I totally forget about, which means they don't get worn as often as I'd like.

And as for my outfit:

rain coat: primark (sale, years ago)

pencil skirt: primark

top: clothing at tesco
Although not really seen in the photos, I'm wearing my favourite Primark black heels, with a pair of black seamed stockings, along with this jersey pencil skirt which I'm never quite sure about, but I wanted something which wasn't black to go with this top.

I guess it's a good outfit; I was complimented on it, which is always nice, although the pictures don't look so great. My favourite part is the coat - I usually forget to take photos of my coat; I really like this one as it's quite full-skirted. 

Another crazy manic day today, off swimming after work, then have a committee meeting. When I get home I'm hoping it's not too late to bake because I've found a recipe for carrot and courgette muffins which I'm really excited to try. Also had to buy more compost and plant pots today as I've run out of things to plant seedlings in - I think I'm going to have more sprouts than I know what to do with. Good job I love sprouts.

  15. Wow awesome collection! Totally been looking for one of those plastic stack storage things for my knitting stuff... Just discovered wellies earlier when I had to borrow some from my mums work for camping - they're a bit strange to walk in after years of Converse! :)

  18. I love being nosey and looking at other peoples tonnes of shoes! You should totally make an inventory-I did it and it's helped me recall forgotten pairs and is a great guide to look at when deciding which shoes to wear. I did a separate list of my IC pairs because like you, they take up the majority of my collection.
