In my circle of friends it seems that all people are ever doing these days is getting married or having babies. While both occasions represent important milestones in people's lives, I must admit that I am not as fussy about what I wear when I go welcome newborns into the world as when I go to a wedding party. Neither are the hosts, I expect.
Since weddings are usually announced early, I've had lots of time to seek out pretty apparel to wear and have thus had the outfit pegged for quite a while:
I'm going to two weddings this season and, yes, I will be wearing the same thing twice. And what is more: the components of what I'm wearing also happen to be appropriate for more or less any occasion. See. I'm smart like that.
In spite of good time and keeping a moderate eye out for a winner, however, it has now been a couple of months and I still haven’t happened upon the perfect pair of shoes to wear. For this reason, I was intending to stop by Kyoto’s presale tomorrow. But in a sudden turn of events involving Manoush and Paul by Paul Smith at bargain prices, this scheme pretty much gang agley this morning when I ended up blowing my sales budget online at ASOS' sale. As a consequence, I was forced to anxiously rummage through the flat looking for the perfect shoe match. I happily did succeed. Meet my shiny boots of leather:
Never mind that the weddings are in July. Let’s just hope we won’t have a heat wave on our hands.
