OOTD: Flower Power

Dress: ASOS
Tights: We Love Colors (Peach)
Boots: Wittner

After I bought my new boots I realised I needed more cute short skirts or dresses to go with them, so I had a mini shopping spree on ASOS.  I was tossing up over this dress and a couple of others and went with this one in the end because it was quite different from anything else I own and thought it would go really well with the boots.  I love the print - it's flowery (Dave can't stop going on about how flowery it is), but it's not super-girly.  I loved the way the outfit came together and just felt really happy with how I looked today.  But I suck at taking photos so the pic doesn't really do it justice.  Trust me when I say I totally rocked this outfit and will definitely be wearing it again!  I think this dress is going to get a lot of rotation.

OOTD: Winter Is Coming

It's cooling down on the Gold Coast.  My beloved Betts boots (as featured in my first ever OOTD) fell apart before the start of last winter and I chose to replace them with my Docs instead of a long pair of boots.  So this season I decided I needed a new pair of knee-high boots.  I wanted flat black boots, but when I saw these boots in the Wittner $100 boot sale I snapped them up.  $250 leather knee-high boots on sale for $100 with free shipping? Yes please!

Boots: Wittner (Style: Bryce in brown burnished leather)

So brown with a 6.5cm heel, not quite what I thought I wanted but I'm allowed to change my mind!  I wore them all day and they were super-comfortable although they are a little bit loose around my feet, so I think I'll get some nice padded insoles and that should solve the problem.  They are pull-on boots which haven't had before but they were surprisingly easy to get on and just the right size.  They will wear to be quite slouchy around the ankles I think, but the brown rough leather is a bit more casual so I think they will still look good.

Here is the rest of the outfit:

Top: Jay Jays
Mini: Torrid
Tights: We Love Colors (Hunter Green)
