WhatLauraWore: Taking My Steve Maddens Out

I love the springtime with all of the new blooms and the days getting longer but that doesn’t always mean the weather is nice and hot. Spring in the UK can be very hit and miss so I tend to wear a lot of layering pieces so I can be warm but easily strip off if the weather gets a bit warmer…. Oooh!

The outfit that I’m wearing today centres around this ASOS Curve Swing Dress in Mono Flower Print.  ASOS swing dresses are so comfortable and easy to wear and they look great with leggings. I wouldn’t say that they’re the most flattering style on my exaggerated apple shape but they certainly hide a multitude of sins and are great for the days where you’re feeling a little bloated and don’t want anything too restrictive.  I love the black and white monochrome print of the dress as it’s eye catching and can be paired with almost any other colours to brighten it up once the weather gets a little warmer.

Layered over my swing dress and leggings is my waterfall cardigan from Very.  This was part of a collection by Holly Willoughby many moons ago.  I’ve had it for absolutely years and wear it right through from autumn to mid spring. It is relatively light weight but keeps me warm and there is so much material that I can really wrap it around myself and snuggle in on colder days.

I’m carrying my Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Speedy 30 with all of my necessities in but the star of the show really is my new Steve Madden boots that I picked up this winter from Dune. They’re the Monicaa Studded Biker Boots and they have quickly become my favourite boots in my collection, not just because of the rose gold studs on them but because of how comfortable to wear and easy to walk in they are.  I was amazed at how comfortable they are, right up there with my UGGs which is amazing considering these appear as though they’d be a lot harder on the feet than the UGG sheepskin offerings that I have in my shoedrobe. They’re honestly so comfortable and although they were expensive, given that I rarely spend a lot of money on shoes and get them from Primark, they are worth every single penny. I can see these lasting for years and years and the leather looks like it will age brilliantly on them. I honestly cannot recommend them enough. I can’t wait until the weather gets cooler later in the year so that I can style these with lots of different outfits. How would you style them?

    I can't really pull off a waterfall cardie, but that one you have there looks great on you!
