Cream lace and studded shoes...

Can you say cliché?! This outfit looks like every festival inspired look or 'ways to toughen up a pretty dress' post that you have ever read but oh well! My new boots arrived at the weekend and I couldn't have been happier. I have been looking for some black ankle boots for ages and these ones are lovely- the leather is so soft and the studs are very subtle and perfect for adding a bit of interest to a more practical shoe...

Dress: Forever 21, belt:ribbon, shoes: Betty London from Spartoo
I wore this dress to celebrate my Grandad's birthday and although it was perhaps a silly idea to wear a cream dress when eating curry, I did appreciate the elasticated waistline ;) A new photo location too, my grandparents really do have a beautiful garden...


I love the wooden heels on these boots, I do wish they were slighter higher but actually, being flat, they will be much more practical once the weather gets worse.


For now though, I will enjoy wearing impractical clothing in the last of the sunshine...
OH HAI beautiful new ankle boots
I would never have usually chosen boots like this in the past but recently I have found myself drawn to things that are slightly edgier than I would usually pick and these boots are a perfect example of how my style has changed since I started blogging. 

How has your style changed? Have you been making the most of the sunshine?
P.S. This post was done in collaboration with Spartoo

I love the way you rock this look, Maria.
I am always too scared of cream or white dresses, I often worry I'll look a bit too wedding in them. But this could be the perfect solution!

I love these, wish that brand went up to a size 8! I love the Ash boots on spartoo too.
My style has changed a lot since starting bloggin, I wear less girly clothes now and more black, simple items x

Loving the dress, it's lovely, and I'm glad to see it's not just me (and my dad) who like to where the palest of pale clothing when eating curry.
