Outfit: All Black Everything

Look how beautiful the colourful backdrop looks! When I take my glasses off, my vision blurs slightly (ok, a lot), and it looks like something out of a Disney animation. Like the bit at the beginning of Alice In Wonderland when she’s sat in park with her sister. 

That's probably the only advantage to being slightly blind is that things can sometimes look 100% better when you can’t see them (paraphrasing a quote from Lolita). I’m aware that that makes me sound bonkers but you’ll TOTALLY get it if you’re also as short-sighted as I am!

These photos makes me feel sad that Summer is officially coming to an end in a couple of days. I honestly don’t want the sunny weather to end. This is a lovely time of year and it makes me sooooo happy but I suppose we have got the pretty Autumn scenery to look forward to. And then comes Winter when everything is eventually dead and dark. Gah! 😒

How To Wear Black Heels With Casual Outfit

Today’s outfit post is centred around these high heels from Ted Baker. These days, I don’t get much of a chance to wear these types of heels. And I certainly don’t make a habit of wearing them to wander about in the local park.

It’s always a challenge to find a suitable daytime outfit to style these types of heels with. It’s also a challenge to search for a suitable location to match. But it’s a challenge that I’m happy to take on because it’s what makes me produce my best blog posts.

It might seem like just a standard all-black outfit to you (and you’re right, it is totes basic) but to me I look at these pics and I remember feeling more like ‘you’re wearing high heels… posing for photos… in the park” haha. 

Again, that's probably another advantage of being short-sighted. You can’t see the puzzled looks on people’s faces when they walk past you, probably wondering (and possibly judging) as to why the hell you wearing a glitzy pair of heels to the park.

But I really do love this outfit a lot. I haven’t done that many outfit posts this year but you may have noticed, especially during Summer, that I don’t wear that much colour anymore. I’ve tried to filter more blacks, whites and greys in to my wardrobe. 

Of course, there are some colourful outfits that I can't bear to part with such as this pineapple print playsuit which fits me like a glove, and this heart print jumper of dreams from good old Topshop! But for now, it’s less print and more grown up.

My black sheer top is from ASOS which I bought about 2 or 3 weeks ago but most of the sizes already sold out. I wanted a nice, see-through top that would go with my pretty black bra. The top is very loose-fitting and has these pretty ruffle details and subtle lace inserts.

I added a gold necklace - which is neither a book or a locket, as a lot of people assume - it is the cutest little Custard Cream biscuit pendant! We weren’t able to get a clearer photograph of it with my 35mm lens but you can see it in more detail here in my blogpost all about my favourite gold necklaces.

I thought that the necklace added a small touch of gold that would also match my shoes and tie the whole outfit together! I mean, it’s really not that deep but sometimes, it’s all about the small finishing touches. Talking of which, there are tiny gold bows on the back of each sandal, which is a cute detail, right?!

The front of the sandals are embellished with a panel of gems. I have never worn a pair with such an elegant slim heel before and I thought I’d topple over on the uneven concrete, but as it turns out, they were a lot easier to walk in that I expected.  I made it safely out of the park alive and with both of my ankle still in tact!
