purple & ankle boots

I was not used to wear ankle boots with my midi skirts, as I thought (and still do) that they make my legs look shorter (and you know, that's not flattering!). But I'm embracing a more relaxed style, more based on colors and impressions than guided by rules and proportions. Actually, I should had worn a pair of below-the-knee boots, but it was not so cold, and I was too lazy to go to my lumber room and unpack some big boxes where winter boots are. I think that one of the reasons to not buy any other pair of below-the-knee boots is because they're a storage nightmare. Even when they're outside their boxes, they take up much space!
Anyway, some snow is going to fall over us pretty soon, so winter boots will go for a walk!
It's time for another fabulous Visible Monday

No solía llevar botines con las faldas a media pierna, pensaba (y sigo pensándolo) que hacen las piernas cortas, y ya sabéis que eso no favorece nada (qué horror!). Pero estoy mucho más relajada y creo que mi estilo se basa más en el color y la impresión general que en las normas y las proporciones. En realidad, debería haberme puesto unas botas altas, pero tampoco hacía tanto frío, y además, me dió pereza irme al trastero a mover las cajas grandes de las botas de invierno. Creo que una de las razones por las que no compro más botas altas es porque son una pesadilla para almacenarlas. Incluso cuando no están en sus (enormes) cajas, siguen ocupando muchísimo espacio!
De todas maneras, ya está anunciada nieve muy pronto, así que las botas de inverno saldrán a la palestra!
Y es de nuevo el momento de otro Lunes Visible Visible Monday

  1. Yo creo que tienes las mejores piernas de la blogosfera y eso no hay botas que lo acorte.
    Guapa y llena de color siempre.
    MIl besos y abrígate que viene frío

  2. Purple, yellow and orange - fabulous colours together! The outfit looks lovely with your ankle boots; I think the coloured tights make all the difference.


  3. Love the colors, and that skirt you made is just beautiful! I wear booties with skirts all the time (of course we are not too chilly here in Florida!) Thanks for linking, xo


  4. A good dollop of purple cheers the soul and mind and great pairing with the mustard/gold colour. Yes, I have the same problem with boots, too much space!

  5. You really rock purple and combined it very well. I wear booties until it's time for winter boots, and then again before the summer shoes and sandals come out. Which means, most of the time. Love the village you visited, and I can understand why it's a favourite. Besos! xxx

  6. Purple and gold look wonderful on you, Monica! I love the pattern and shape of your skirt and I think that it works really well with those ankle boots. Your joy and pleasure in dressing up as you do is infectious, hurrah!
    Wishing you a lovely week x

  7. This is a brilliant outfit Monica! Gold and purple are gorgeous together, and your kitty brooch is adorable.
