Do you know the feeling when you have more money than usual and just want to spend it on something (anything) to spoil yourself a little ? I had that last week. I was thinking about buying myself another bag, but I couldn't decide which one. I then stumbled upon these Sandro boots, a store I usually don't go into, because the prices are a little higher than what I tend to spend, and it was love at first sight. I had to have them. I was willing to spend anything up to 500€, and they were 380€. I had to have them. I tried them on, and they looked like they were made for me. So my thing. The hard black leather, classic cut with the metal chain on the margin, absolutely beautiful. I asked for size 39, but they only had 38. I bought them, even though I knew that wearing them was going to hurt my feet as fuck. I was up for all the painful risks that these leather boots were to offer. I walked around with them in London for one weekend, my feet hurt like crazy, and yet I don't regret having bought them for one second. If that's not love, then I don't know. And from my experience with leather boots I know that if you can endure the pain for a year or something, they will wear out and one day fit your feet perfectly fine. Aren't they beautiful : ( ?
The second good purchase from this outfit is that small leather bag from Zara. It looks small, but it's so useful, because actually a lot fits in there ! Because it's soft leather, you can stuff all your things in there. Looking at it, I thought it was just a small bag, for occasions on which I don't have to bring much except for my phone and money. When I went out with it for the first time though, I realized how many things you can actually put in there ! I had my camera, my purse, my phone, my passport, a hand mirror and lip balm fit in there ! Quite a lot, if I compare it to my Alexander Wang bag. Which only fits my purse and my phone or my planner and my phone or my planner and my purse. Totally recommended. It was 30€ I think, and totally worth the money.
My ex boyfriend took these photos of me, because we still meet and hang out, and he's the only person I can trust to take proper photos of me, and who can bothered to do it for an hour or so. I also took some of his outfit, might post them in my next post. And also might reveal under what circumstances we interact and get along with right now. It's all a little complicated, but isn't life always somehow ?
