A little while ago I blogged about how badly I wanted a pair of boots sold by H&M (you can see the post here), and by now I actually possess them. Have for a while, as a matter of fact, but was terribly undecided if I really wanted to keep them (especially since I would have treated myself to some black faux-leather-bag in lieu of the boots). I was practically already almost 100% that I’d return them, when I did a few outfit mix-ups and ultimately decided to keep them. And yes, I know, all of this is horribly irrelevant actually, I bother you with it nevertheless.
The above outfit was roughly what I had in mind when I wanted to buy the boots. Well, turned out, it didn’t really look good. I don’t like my legs in these trousers being visually shortened by the boots. Oh, the terror!
It was the outfit below that kind of – after days of contemplation and thinking I’d give them back for sure and get myself the bag instead – reconciled me with the idea of keeping them, because although it’s very business outfitty, I like how the boots complete the look.
Ultimately, it was the outfit right above that sold me on the ideas that keeping the boots was the way to go. I love oversized things that completely distort proportions, and I’ve owned that pair of trousers for at least 10 years, now I finally have the boots to let them celebrate their comeback. And 10 years and comeback are roughly the terms that describe how 90’s boyband-y I feel, when looking at these pictures of myself.
And cause celebrations are all about having fun, I’ll give you another shot of me with the outfit and them boots:
Do you think that keeping the boots is the right decision?
