Dress - Vintage/DIY
Cardi - Mum's old
Shoes - Mum's
Here's an outfit I wore to a little birthday party/lunch earlier this month. The lighting's a bit different in almost every photo because I took these at different times of the day.. But never mind that! I don't think I would have thought of pairing the dress with this cardigan in normal circumstances, but I had red nails and no time to redo them which resulted into this red and blue ensemble. I still don't own nice winter shoes of my own (and what's the point in buying some now that it's supposed to be spring?) and have to make do with whatever we have in the house. I actually found these 2nd hand boots but since they're a bit too big for myself, I let my mum have them. With an extra pair of socks they were quite nice, though!
On another note, this outfit isn't even red, white and blue but the amount of snow still makes up for the lack of white in the outfit. Because wherever I see red, white and blue it always makes me think of There'll Always Be an England. I never remember more than the lyrics 'red, white and blue/ what does it mean to you?' and it drives me mad not being able to mind the rest. But it also reminds me of my dad singing this. And most memorably singing this when he gave me his red, white and blue tie and taught me to tie it properly.
Anyway, hope you're all having a very good Good Friday!
