I finally found a pair of white boots that I like (that also weren’t silly money) to wear with my floral maxi dress – a combination I’ve been wanting to wear for ages.
It was the tiniest bit milder this weekend, a bit different to the snow we had last week. We spent the weekend with friends down on the coast near the New Forest, and although our walk down at the sea was somewhat biting due to the cold wind, the rest of the time it was reasonably mild. I could actually forgo a huge coat for once and decided that I should wear my khaki suedette jacket, floral maxi dress and white boots by Miss KG.
When I saw the combination of maxi dress and white boots on every fashionista at September’s Fashion Week I fell in love with the look and it started my months-long search for the right pair. I didn’t want to spend TOO much (I can’t see them staying on trend for that long), I wanted the heels to be white (as opposed to black), I didn’t want the heel to be too high or thin and I was after something quite plain. Eventually I found the Miss KG pair for just under fifty quid… not bad!
I have a feeling the khaki jacket is going to get a LOT of wear come spring as well as on colder days in the summer.
It was a bit of throw-it-on outfit (the jacket was a last minute, I-hope-it-looks-okay-with-the-dress choice), but I’m loving it all the same. I haven’t worn the floral maxi nearly as much as I hoped to over the winter because it’s been just SO damn cold – tights under a dress just weren’t enough to keep me warm – but I’ll see if I can get a few more wears out of it yet. I have a feeling the khaki jacket is going to get a LOT of wear come spring as well as on colder days in the summer.
SHOP THE LOOK:
The little added-extra I liked was the tan bum bag from Asos – I actually swapped the belt with my own studded belt, which is a little tip for you if you want to get a bum bag that’s more of a purse belt where the purse detaches from the belt. I have my eye on a leopard bum bag from Topshop, but to be honest it’s not exactly an essential and do I want to spend money on something that’s very, VERY on trend right now? Not sure about that one.
So there you have it – I’ve finally donned my floral maxi dress and white boots outfit, only about six months after it was THE outfit to be seen wearing 😉 . As I always say I don’t really care if I’m on trend, off trend or way behind everyone else… I like the combination and that’s what counts. I never see anyone wearing anything vaguely like what I wear where I live anyway (or down on the south coast in Hampshire!), so in the true spirit of this week’s link up I really am just wearing what I like.

Thank you for joining the #iwillwearwhatilike link up! This started as a campaign on Instagram in August 2015 where women over 30 wore everything on a journalist’s list of “inappropriate” items for 30+ women (including leopard print, short dresses and oversized sunglasses. Yes, really). It was so popular that I decided to carry it on weekly where women of all ages link up their fabulous style, never mind what anyone tells them not to wear!
The link up goes live every Monday at 3pm UK time and will stay open for a week. Whilst the original article was of course aimed at the 30+, you can be ANY age to link up. The only criteria is that you’re wearing whatever you damn well like!
