No interruption

#teenvogue // HM top and trousers, ASOS necklace, coat c/o WENDYBOX, KURT GEIGER boots

Don't be deceived by how pretty these shoes are young ones, they were the death of my little toes.
I took them off after a day shopping and sang 'run free little toes, run free', they looked at me and replied with that typical teenager response, 'cba'.
Lazy buggers.
Regardless, they are incredibly pretty and thus made the trek worth it. I feel like women have always had this 'no pain, no gain' attitude instilled in them, think about it; corsets, high heels, bodycon dresses. None of them scream 'I'm so comfy right now I could be a cloud' and yet we put up with them for the sake of appearances. Of course, I do love wearing heels because I'm a shoe magpie of the silhouettes they create and they can add something to a slightly more boyish, sporty ensemble (see above) but I don't think I'll ever know whether that's just because fashion has told me that since I was yay high, or because that's an individual view. Descartes argued that no idea is greater than it source, and to an extend I feel this idea is becoming ever more present in fashion. If heels weren't so glorified, would I feel just as happy wearing this with converse?
On that note, my Nike collection grows ever strong so I suppose we could be turning back on these ideas. What do you think?

  9. The heels definitely dress up the sporty outfit :) While I do love heels on others, I can't get myself to wear them cause I want to cry after the first half hour of wearing them lol. I don't think that it is a dichotomy, a part is the hype, but partly it really is how they transform a look.

  13. Those boots are so pretty! If they hurt, I'd advise you to wear them with thick socks, if the shoe size allows that, of course!

  31. o m g ASOS Necklace - perfect with the bag.
    Though the boots and the coat are kept in
    decent colours, the KG boots still add a certain elegance to your outfit.
    Obsessed with that outfit.
