Hello. I've never posted on S&B before though have lurked a fair bit recently. I've lost a lot of weight in the last year and gone from a size 18 to a 10/12 and have had to do a lot of readjusting in terms of thinking about my wardrobe and what I wear, what looks good on me etc.

I bought this dress last week - but I'm struggling to work out what shoes/boots to wear with it.

My legs are not bad, probably better than I imagine but it's a long time since I've worn things above my knee... Oh, and I'm early 40s, if that's relevant.

I've also recently got these two dresses, [[http://www.boden.co.uk/en-GB/Womens-Dresses/Day-Dresses/WH718/Womens-Lindsey-Ponte-Dress.html blue] and [[http://www.boden.co.uk/en-GB/NewAndNow/Womens-Dresses/Day-Dresses/WH716/Womens-Ottoman-Shift.html green].

Ideally I need some shoes/boots that I can wear with all three, but perhaps I need two different pairs...

Any ideas? Thank you!

Flat, soft knee/otk boots with round toes would go with all style wise, not sure about colour, maybe soft grey or navy suede?

For boden dresses, how about these?

Oh and well done btw, bet you look amazing!

Thanks! I was originally thinking shoes (as I do have boots) but I think maybe my boots are the wrong boots and I need better boots.

I kind of need something for everyday and am crap with heels! But I guess I probably need something to dress the dresses up with too. Hmmm.

I would go for flat pointy shoes with all of these dresses, and you could either wear opaque tights or nude tights. My personal taste would be to choose a colour/pattern to contrast with black/navy opaque tights such as pale grey.

Yes, to pointy flat ones - I had thought about these Boden ones - they model them with one or both of the dresses. But I'm not sure about the colours.

Has anyone seen anything similar?

I would wear it with ballet flats or black shiny boots.
