I’m not immune to trends and marketing. The floral bootie trend has been on my mind for about two years now.
Floral Bootie Trend And Velvet
I do consider two years to be a decent wait time to ensure that I’m truly in love with something prior to purchasing.
(This is me trying not to feel guilty about purchasing something via an online retail shop.)
I bought these booties not long after Christmas when everyone feels they need to go out and buy the stuff they didn’t get in their stockings. Since we don’t exchange gifts that left the door wide open.
I didn’t want other patterns to compete with the booties so I wore this very striped down version of a thrifted velvet boho style top and one of my handmade necklaces with some apparently so-not-cool-anymore skinny jeans.
Maybe my not-so-svelte thighs and hips don’t mind that these jeans aren’t on trend anymore although I do find the heavier I get the less I like pants of any kind.
Yesterday I went and got a pedicure. A pedicure in the middle of winter can only mean one thing…the beach!
After being sick for well over two weeks now I can tell you I cannot wait to soak up some proper vitamin D.
We are off to an island in the South where there is very sketchy internet connection and a mandatory no blogging rule is strictly enforced.
I’m busy packing now. So far my suitcase includes six dresses, a pair of shorts, a few t-shirts, three bathing suits, snorkelling gear and a couple of hats. I hope to have a post for you upon my return of what I’ve taken along to this getaway.
I’m uploading books to my Kindle as well. It seems that vacation is the only time I manage to sit down and read a book, otherwise I’m always online reading.
I’m looking forward to being totally disconnected. It’ll be like I’ve gone back in time to the 80’s! Ah…my youth! (If only!)
I’ll catch up with you some time later next week.
The sun, sand and fish are calling my name.
