You all know me, guys: once I find an outfit formula I like, I beat it into the ground, so here I am following up Wednesday’s “midi dress, sweater and ankle boots” outfit with a midi skirt, sweater and ankle boots.
So, that’s TOTALLY different, yeah?
Well, OK, it’s not, really, but this particular combination is just really easy to wear right now, and if the sweater in question can have some kind of slogan on the front, then so much the better, because, when it comes to slogan sweaters, I. Am. Addicted. I just can’t stop buying the things – and you can’t make me, so there.
This one is from Next, and it’s another one of those non-maternity pieces that I’m still managing to fit over the bump – just. The skirt, meanwhile, IS maternity, and I’m wearing it with another current obsession of mine: sock boots. Yes, boots that look like socks. I love ’em. See, the thing is, I’ve always had a bit of an issue with ankle boots, in that they tend to be too wide for my ankles/calves, so they all end up looking a bit like wellies on me, and, if I try to wear them with trousers or jeans, they catch on the hem, and make me want to cry.
These ones, on the other hand, fit under trousers AND work with skirts/dresses, and that makes them the new loves of my (fashion) life. I honestly never thought I’d see the day when I’d be using the words “sock” and “boots” to describe an item of footwear – and LIKE it – but hey: this year has been so completely surreal in every single respect that me wearing sock boots is actually one of the LEAST strange things that’s happened all year. Who woulda thunk it, huh?
