is it because i lied when i was seventeen..

cardigan: new look
tights, shoes: topshop
dress: new look
Another day of rain but I'm trying not to care - currently shopping in Bham, which has had me rather excited for the past few days. Meeting up with some really lovely ladies this evening for dinner and dancing (not that I am much of a dancer!)

I wore this outfit on Monday. Usually I lose track of the days I've worn something but I remember this one as I was at Guides and a lot of the girls asked me why I had such weird shoes on - apparently I look strange if my shoes aren't killer high.

To be fair, they have a point. I honestly felt awkward in them all day. Maybe it was the combination of coloured tights with them, but I didn't love the shoes. As usual, I bought these as I was drawn to the cute print, but they've not had a lot of wear because I don't like mini heels like this. I can cope with flats or high heels, but seem to feel more self-conscious in the middle of the range. They've been tossed on to the ebay pile for the next time I have the energy to list anything (let me know if they take your fancy).

 Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

  5. i used to have those shoes i was so sad when they go too small they are amazing xx

  6. That dress is sweet - looks better than New Look!

  7. That is such a beautiful dress! The print of the shoes is amazing too, it's a shame about the height.
