Sometimes I get stuck in a rut when it comes to my clothes and my fashion sense. I can go from phases of wearing just casual clothes, where wearing heels hurts not only my feet but also slightly dents my will- power to leave the confines of my house, to simply living in shorts, skirts and dresses in the summer. I find then that when it gets colder my trousers always seem too tight and too restrictive, my boots too clunky and my heels not high enough. Do you find this too? Then, when after months of layering up and wearing woolies and jeans, the sun finally comes out and I really want to be feminine and girlie and wear skirts and heels again, I realize that not only am I about 100 kilos heavier than I was in September, but also my legs after months under wraps, look like some shriveled up, dry old cactus. Cracking, extremely pasty with some sexy patchy stubble to go with.
However, there is no escaping the fact that you will have to get them out soon and so the other day I took the plunge and ordered some skimpies. This is what I wore for “Legs” *The Comeback Tour* and now that they have seen the light of day, with a few more quick sessions in the sun , a large box of plasters (for the heels) and a large bottle of moisturizer, there isn’t anything I can’t do!
I decided on nude heels or stone, as I felt that this color would blend in quite well with my lighter skin color but would also look great as I tanned. The great thing about these shoes is that they do not attract too much attention away from the outfit and are more discreet than either black or white, the other colors which go best with virtually any color. They are very easy to combine and also wear as the heels is not too high and I think I will be wearing these over and over again.
I thought I would wear my white embroidered blouse again. This is very light and tucks in easily into the high wrap skirt. I have worn this one over and over again and was a big part of my outfit in my most recent fashion post Taupe Blazer and Skull Candy.
I wore a fun Charm Bracelet with exotic pendants, including an elephant, a blue gem stone and Buddha. As well as this I added a Diamond Bangle to make the bracelets a strong part of the outfit.
What I am really pleased about however, is the tropical palm print skirt.The colors are bold but are interspersed with white which breaks up the fabric and makes it look much more than just a skirt for a fancy dress Hawaiian luau. It is a wrap skirt and so it longer in the front, which gives it a nice shape and makes it feel less short.
