The Red Boots Outfit
There’s been a little change around with my schedule as things haven’t quite gone to plan this week. I caught a cold/flu on Monday and have been incredibly ill (much like everyone else right now, I know) so I’ve been in bed a lot, suffering the rotten symptoms and have barely been able to work. I did put on Instagram and Twitter that I would be taking a break so I didn’t post for 2 days, and have taken a 4 day break on the blog as well, as resting up and not looking at screens was what had to be done. Thankfully I am feeling well enough to catch up on things and get some work done, but still struggling with even going out or just speaking without irritating my nose and throat.
I did have another post planned for publishing yesterday, but I haven’t even been able to make a start on any this week at all, so I’m using older photos. Adam and I actually shot these back in November and I wasn’t going to use them as we started shooting the photos to showcase the boots and once I saw how it looked on the camera, I decided to quit the photo shoot as I was freezing and I just didn’t like how the photos looked, or the outfit in general as the red’s didn’t match either. I think the main issue was the fact that my striped top underneath was blue and I had removed my scarf, so I made the mistake of not realising it would show through and it was really throwing the entire look off. I did edit the photos a while ago though and changed the blue top to grey, and cleaned things up, so out of the couple of angles I do have here, they’re not so bad. I’ve included some Bath scenery shots as well as some arty ones of the boots, just to make things a bit different and bring in some more photography.
I was wearing my River Island Aviator Coat (which you’ve seen before here) with my James Jeans Skinny Jeans in Black, styled with red accessories in the form of my DUO Dottie Red Boots (formerly known as Ted & Muffy as they switched the name back to the original DUO) and my Cambridge Satchel Poppy Bag. I don’t often wear bright pops of red (unless it’s a rainy day outfit like this) as I’m more into burgundy, but the bright red shade on these boots was too pretty to pass up! You know how much of a fan of the brand I am and I always appreciate working with them.
So you’re getting a spur of the moment post here that wasn’t planned for this day at all, but all in all, I actually don’t mind how everything turned out and once edited, I quite like them now. I’m going to think of different ways I can wear these boots though and show them off properly, so I’m thinking a dress might be a better option when the weather warms up – what do you think? I’m hoping to get things back on track on Monday with my posting schedule and I wish all of you health too! There’s some seriously nasty bugs flying around right now, so be as cautious as you can. I’m OCD (not a careless use of the term, I do have it) with germs and it still got me unfortunately, so be as careful as you can. Let me know what you think of the outfit and thank you for your support as always. Lorna xx.
