|Abigail's Party boots: Irregular Choice|
|Coat: Louche @ Joy|
The print is a little pinker than I'd thought it would be from the press photos, so I'd considered my pink cropped jumper, which seems to be becoming quite the wardrobe staple, lately. (See here and here). In the end, though the shoes dictated the rest of the outfit.
I've got to admit, this #irregularchoicechallenge is a little more tricky than I'd bargained on. I've rediscovered pairs which I'd forgotten about, which is lovely, but I guess that the nature of the challenge is that once they're worn, they're worn, so it seems to be a case of being careful not to "waste" a pair, in case I find an outfit later on which would be a better match. I decided that these Abigail's Party were a pretty good match for this dress, (well, this whole outfit really) and decided to let them have their day!
Luck on my side, I managed to find a necklace in almost the exact same colours as the dress and added an old silver cardigan, bought many years ago from H&M and which has been used as a neutral for almost every colour or print I can think of.
The pretty bird brooch is a rather new addition to my Louche coat; I love it's pastel colour scheme. Altogether, it turned into one of those outfits which just kind of worked. Maybe it was just my mood as it was also a rather good day.
