We had a few grey leaden days in a row last week. This always makes me want to dip into the more colourful side of my closet! As often happens, I started with the shoes and dressed upwards from there.
My four year old son and I went shopping on my birthday in August. He LOVED these green satin boots and insisted I buy them. Green is his favourite colour, so if there is ever a choice of colour for anything, his answer is green. He especially likes the “golden dragons” on the boots. They’re actually birds, but who am I to argue with a four year old who is encouraging me to buy new shoes? We both walked away very pleased with my purchase.
So they’d be very visible, I wore the boots with these deep cuffed jeans. The jury is still out on the jeans. I don’t find them very flattering, and the unusual proportions make wearing them with coats quite tricky. Shorter coats are ok, and a very long coat works, but anything in between just looks messy and awkward. They’re fine with a sweater though. This butter yellow coat (also worn here) works better than any other coat I have, and just so happens to match the flowers in the boots nicely.
I still wanted more colour though, so I broke out this blue crystal necklace and matching earrings from Eternal Collection which I’ve been dying to wear. The two tones of blue work beautifully with any colour of denim, which is why I chose them. I specifically wanted statement sparkle that was easy to wear for daytime and easy to wear with jeans. My mantra is always More Is More, so I layered two of the necklaces to make a little more of a statement (there is a chain in the back to adjust the length). Though I don’t like floral fabrics much, I absolutely adore flowers in jewellery; I have lots of earrings and necklaces with a floral motif. These blue spiky flowers are a very welcome addition to my collection!
The sun came out for 2 minutes, just long enough to get this photo of the stones in the necklaces.
A few of my blogging friends in the Over 40 Collective also chose pieces from Eternal Collection. Have a look at their choices.
