OUTFIT | Casual nautical
This time last week, I broke out the peep toes for the first time this year: yay! This morning I woke up to snow on the window, and now I’m wearing ALL of my clothes simultaneously, in a bid to stay warm: not-so-yay!
OK, so it’s possible I jumped the gun a little with the peep toes, but in my defence, it was a nice day when these were taken, and you have to grab these opportunities while you can. And, look, I’m Scottish: you should all just be grateful I’m not wearing a bikini in these photos, because one stereotype about the Scottish that IS reasonably accurate is that the second the sun comes out, we’re all out in our shorts, even if it’s close to freezing. Terry and I used to live near a slightly dodgy pub, and sometimes I’d walk by it on a sunny-but-cold day, and there’d be a bunch of men hanging around outside with their shirts tied around their waists and their chests bared to the elements, because if the sun’s out, that means it must be warm, yes?
But I digress. I actually bought these shoes to wear on holiday. I know this’ll sound strange to those of you who refuse to believe that non-flat shoes can ever be comfortable, but wedges are actually my favourite shoe style to wear for days when I know I’ll be on my feet a fair bit – as well as being more flattering to my stumpy legs than flats are, they also have much better arch support, and are just generally more comfortable for me. Well, most of the time, anyway: I still bear the scars (not literally) of the three weeks I spent hobbling round Miami a couple of years ago because the wedges I’d packed turned out to have some kind of serious vendetta against feet, so this time I’m making sure I break these in thoroughly. I’m happy to report that their inaugural outing was a success, so let’s just hope they don’t have any surprises planned for the future!
The top, meanwhile, is from H&M: my parents gave me the white version at Christmas, and I liked it so much I immediately bought this stripe version, and also the black one. So, every colour it comes in, basically. Well, you can never have too many boat-necked tops, can you? Exactly.[separator type=”thin”]
