I’m in love.
The signs have been there for a couple of weeks now – lack of appetite, daydreaming about my affection, sweaty palms, unexplained palpitations…
And now the object of my desire is in my possession.
I have found the perfect pair of boots and I’m in love. You know the ones – they fit perfectly, make you feel fantastic and you know that this will be a lifelong partnership. Well, at least until they fall apart or you become unfaithful!
(Sorry for the hype, but I do like a bit of drama occasionally!)
I saw them a couple of weeks ago. The most perfect pair of knee high boots – all glossy with their rich chocolately brown leather and suede. Little buckles down the side…
I’m really not doing them justice – I’ll post a photo when I can.
The only problem is that they are crying out to be worn with a skirt.
The last time I wore a skirt voluntarily was about 7 years ago, the times I’ve worn one since have been few and far between, and has only been achieved with a serious amount of bullying, bribery and blackmail.
But these boots are worth it. Best Friend and I are going to go skirt shopping in a couple of weeks and maybe I’ll find the perfect skirt to go with the perfect boots.
When I was a teenager, I used to love skirts and dresses. In fact, my standard summer uniform was a little dress and my trusty Doc Martin boots – I loved them.
Most women have something clothes wise that they adore. I’m really not that fussed about jewellery (though I have some pretty pieces), shoes or the current fashion. My things are boots. And bags.
I’ve been known to blow my wages on a bag that I have fallen in love with and have spent hours drooling over boots. I don’t tend to wear them that often, my job requires practical shoes, so I spend much of my time in converse trainers, but that doesn’t mean that I still can’t harbour desires for my boots and gaze at them with love and affection!
When I’ve found the skirt I will let you know. One of the times I’m planning on wearing them is for the work Christmas Party, it’ll be interesting to see how people react – I’m not convinced they even think I have legs!
