Having someone pick out one element of my outfits for five days is an easy way to boost my creativity with outfits!
I adore this beautiful marine blue blouse; it's not quite navy; it's got more green in it. I haven't worn it since October 2013, here, with a sleeveless vest I got rid of. I prefer it worn on its own so that you can see the great fit and nice micro-pleated collar. It's a very unusual blouse.
here in May with teal and red underthings.
here, with my red dress. That outfit - and these shoes - inspired this week's theme, so let's see what L has to say about them.
These "walk the plank!” shoes are partly on me. I have a slight colour blindness which makes the straps on these shoes come out looking various shades of brown, when I suspect they are actually much more vibrant. However, even if I could properly appreciate the colour, I’ll never appreciate the solid wooden heel nor the thick, square finish to the tips (I prefer a pointy toe for both ‘his’ and ‘hers’ in shoes). The rivets down the side just add more clunk – they’d be more at home holding down a tarpaulin on a cargo deck.Well! Tell me how you really feel, L! The leather straps on these are of course coloured, in shades of pink, red, teal, soft green and a bit of caramel. This is why I have to help L match shirts and ties: the poor man is colourblind.
