OOTD: Lace-up everything

Suffer for your art they say… is wearing a mini dress with bare legs in January (by the blooming breezy seaside I might add) suffering enough? But the hypothermia is worth it when you get to show off THE most amazing shoes. Every once in a while, or every thirty seconds if you’re me, an item of clothing/a bag/a pair of shoes (delete as applicable) will come into your life and you will just have to have them. And it turns out glittery, lace-up heels with stars and brightly coloured pompoms on are my kryptonite…

So let’s discuss the reason you’re all here – that pair of dreamboats. Half of you probably adore them and the other half think they look like I’ve fallen into a kids craft draw. To the former I say ‘yassss’ and to the latter I say ‘that’s my aesthetic’. Who says you can’t dress up like a fancy four year old? Sparkly stars and pompoms will always be welcome in my wardrobe turned dressing up box.

The dress is an oldie but a goodie from Missguided (I’ve linked similar above). The lace-up detail and pockets (praise) turn the shift from ordinary white dress into a chic little number. Over-sized pea coats have been everywhere for a while now and camel is such a classic colour. It’s my transitional style go-to each season as it’s beyond easy to wear. For days when getting out of ya pjs seems like a mammoth task, black skinny jeans, a black polo neck and a camel coat are an effortless option. Now all you need is a coffee and you’re ready to take on the world.

So what do you think? Ready to brave bare legs yet (spoiler alert: you are not, trust me).

Love Lucinda xx
