After a week of box-hauling and inevitable yet unforeseen expenses, I hopped out of the shower and straight to the wardrobe to shake things up from the norm; untamed hair, that ‘difficult’ wardrobe item that never seems right for the day’s occasions in the morning, and a wine-phobic pair of white jeans that managed to survive the day.
If you’ve paid a shred of attention to these outfit posts over the years you’d know that bare legs are as much part of my style as retro-inspired dresses. In fact, I’ve earned a reputation for making my friends and colleagues second hand frozen from my lack of legwear as the temperatures drop.
The best solution for all involved? Some truly glorious thigh high boots.
It’s all turned a little “insert dress here” and it has made me feel a little less me.
To combat the unwelcome feels, I took my first night off in over six weeks, dyed my hair green (temporarily!), laid out an outfit that made me feel Lela AF, and popped my favourite jewelry in my bag for my fated morning haze.
This jewelry brain hack has become part of my daily routine since discovering Centime’s coordinates jewelry (you can pop your chosen GPS coordinates – ie your wedding venue – onto their pretty little pieces). Couples options with hidden inside-ring messages and all.
(Shut up! YOU’RE sentimental!)
