One of my passions growing up was fashion. Oh how I loved fashion, I would spend hours reading fashion magazines looking at the new trends, deciding what I would buy next.
I hate to admit it but I have lost my way a little since having kids – lack of time, lack of money and also just simple practicalities now seem to hold me back. I never used to think twice about wearing the highest heels and the most uncomfortable outfit as long as I looked good (shallow I know!). I can honestly say I now rarely get excited by outfits or shopping. I obviously still want to look and feel nice but I no longer love to go shopping for clothes or shoes and I have no idea what the latest trends are. When out shopping, instead of simply buying items I love, I always end up thinking – “is it worth the price?”, “is it practical?” and “will I get a lot of wear out of it?” – dull I know.
However, there are rare times when something catches my eye, items that make my heart flutter a little and take me back to my fashionista days. I feel excited and giddy and practicality goes right out the window – these boots did just that! With a suede front they are not the most practical, maybe they are a little high to be running around after the girls, I’m not even sure they will go with all my outfits – however, I absolutely love them and they make me feel so happy!! Definitely a worthwhile buy.
