my OTK boots or this peachy jacket. They're kind of outfit makers. Strong items within their own right that take all the attention. And for me, that means easy-peasy dressing; whatever goes underneath is usually super simple. Here for example are my just my trusty skinny jeans and plain black sweater.. It really couldn't get any easier.
When i first got my OTK boots I was really apprehensive about wearing them in the day, to just pop to the shops or on the school run, because they can so easily bring about the old 'Pretty Woman' connotations, with her famous teeny dress and Over The Knee boots. But once i realised how great they are and how comfy they can be, i was fully committed to the OTK trend (Plus you can wear super thick socks under there and nobody is any the wiser.).
It also ties in with the post i wrote on Wednesday about Dressing to Social Norms, and how living in a small town can sometimes be a little bit intimidating to step outside of the 'Normal dress-code' Box.
I don't think i know anyone IRL who has a pair of these, but that doesn't have to mean i dont have to have some now does it? I'm very lucky that a lot of the school mums/friends know me well enough now to know that i do wear some different to your average type clothes, but breaking the stereotyping is a great way to push boundaries and have fun with it!
Yes some people may think, "What the heck is she wearing on her feet?!" But does it really matter?
I think not.
If we all start to except each others differences, starting with clothing, then that, i think, could lead to a very good place. And in a world of turbulence right now, change needs to be embraced and supported.
Ok.. that was deeper than i anticipated for Friday post, LOL!
Apparently I'm on a mission. A mission in my OTK boots ;)
