This post is about the combination of a few of my favourite things: my Acne tunic with skinny jeans and silver boots. The boots are actually silver / gold / bronze. And after the initial painful period of adjusting the right boot to my (half a size bigger) right foot, they are reasonably comfortable. As comfortable as pointy high heeled boots can get.
I was visiting my friend Marianne to exchange birthday gifts as we both got a year older. I asked her to take some photos of this outfit. However, Marianne’s hands are not steady enough to photograph without the camera being on a stand. This due to her illness multiple sclerosis. As she is a very resilient woman she had a solution. She directed me to a bird feeder in her garden and said: “Put the camera in the bird feeder, position it correctly and wedge it behind a post so it cannot fall. I will press the buttons.” But the camera was quite high up in the stand. For which she also had a solution. You see, Marianne makes the world slightly less safe by cruising around in a mobility scooter and this scooter has some handy features. Like… it can rise to adjust to a desired height. Very handy.
Below: here she is. She knows I am publishing this photo but will scream blue murder when she sees that one leg of her trousers is all rolled up.She is great fun to be with and part of a group of 6 women (friends) who all worked at the same place at one time. For 25 years we meet every two or three months and spend the day together from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. This year we are going to celebrate our anniversary by going to Spain for a week. Unfortunately one of us cannot come, but we will send her lots of photos.
Below: I am grinning at her all the time.Below: the necklace is by Iceberg (bought in the sale). Petrol chaines with golden chains. I have posted my Acne tunic twice before. In spring here and in winter here.Below: from the other side. The boots by Hoss you have seen a million times like here, here and here. And the skinnies are by Denham. Also seen a hundred times like here. Below: a close-up of the bag I bought at the outlet in Turin, brand Marina Rinaldi. Below: two more pictures of Marianne’s garden. As I am longing for spring.
