Outfit: Stars and Stripes







RI Red wedges

Monday and Friday are earlier mornings than the rest of the week as I work at the office the other side of the city those days. It’s still light when I get up at the moment, but it is no longer light enough for outdoor pictures at that time. This is a sure sign that autumn is coming. Speaking of which, I need to crack on with the Shoeper Shoe Challenge as I see a pair of fabric flats and a pair of flip flops lurking on my list of yet to be worn shoes.

I contemplated wearing my new blue boots today but the forecast was for it to be warm (it was 17°C at 7.20am so they got that bit right!) so out came the insane red wedges, so I can get the cost per wear down a bit further before they have to be retired for the autumn/winter season. Of course, it’s now raining and they are about the least practical footwear for rain that I own. All I can do is hope it stops before I take a trip to ASDA at lunchtime, and be thankful that I’m so far off the ground in them, at least they won’t get wet inside at the front from splashes of puddles.

On reflection, I’m not sure what I am wearing today really goes together that well. I think it’s OK, but I could have done better. Some evenings I am just not in the mood for thinking out outfits though so go with whatever seems easiest. I almost switched the cardi for a plain white one, but decided to stick with the stripes.
