Today being a typical cold and grey British summer day, I decided to dress the blues away, arming myself with an array of colours so bright, they would require all passers-by to wear sunglasses – despite the threatening rain.
So here I am in my trusted orange Dorothy Perkins skater dress, turquoise twisty Fenchurch belt, posh pink Whistles ‘Wren’ jacket, and orange-multicoloured Irregular Choice heels.
Yes, I’ve concluded that there’s nothing quite like dressing to lift your mood. Whether others would agree with my assault on their eyes is another matter entirely!
These fabulous white cowboy boots come from a vintage-clothes-cum-antiques store in Hastings old town, and not only do they fit me, but they’re actually a bit too big – unheard of for someone with my hulking great UK8 (European 41/42) size feet!
What to wear with cowboy boots? Well, a shirt and some denim, of course! So here I am in a pair of Topshop cutoff shorts (with obligatory pockets peeping through), and a cotton Topshop shirt: I may have never dug the double-denim look, but I do love a crisp white shirt!
The pully’s a Primark special, whilst the jacket is leather and silver (my favourite combination!) from a thrift store in Brighton. Cowgirl heaven indeed…
