A pencil skirt and a tucked-in blouse...I'm having a bit of a Mad Men moment here, combining this lace overlay skirt (which you saw with a trench coat in my last post) with a sleeveless blouse (instead of my usual choice of a t-shirt).
I sort of like this little top (and I've worn it on the blog before, with trousers), especially with the skirt. It makes the outfit look a bit more polished and sophisticated, and that's exactly what I'd like to see my style evolve into. Hmm, maybe I should wear shirts and blouses more often...
It's just that I have this aversion to ironing...
To be honest, I can't quite remember were we keep the iron, and it seems such a waste of time, really. Think about it, all those interesting activities you could be engaged in instead of ironing...
Such as what, you ask?
Well, that's not really important, is it? The point is, ironing is so boring, and I'd rather watch paint dry...
But let's move on to something more interesting: shoes.
Yes, this is what passes for heels in my world...
I'm serious, I won't wear anything higher. I need to feel comfortable, and I walk a lot.
Still, doesn't every woman have a few pairs of fun shoes, or 'sitting down' shoes, limousine shoes, whatever you want to call them? For those times when we just need to walk from the door to the car?
Well, I don't have a car (as I'm such a terrible driver, it's probably safer for everybody), neither does my husband (I promised not to say a word about his driving skills...) and there are no limousines picking me up either. So, yes, I walk, or take the bus / train, and I need shoes that are meant for walking.
Besides, I'm a fundamentally practical person, and as such I see no point in having shoes that are for decoration only.
I am wearing:
sunglasses: Prada (old) / shoes: Hotter Comfort Concept
What about you, do you iron your clothes?
And where do you stand on comfortable shoes?
