My Mum passed away in November so havnt been out with hubby for about a year as she was poorly for a long time.
Ive decided i need to try and get my life back on track. Ive said to hubby i want to go to some cocktail bars in Manchester or Liverpool, so was thinking black skinny trousers and some brown boots i have bought, but im stuck in the colour or type of top to wear. Was thinking a dressy bardot top? What do you all think ☺
Pic of boots below and a possible top? Its gold

I like the shoes but not sure of them with black trousers. Because of the colour difference, it will create a visible line and make your legs look quite stumpy.

If you don't mind your legs, I'd go a dress (if you're fairly tall, a midi length would look nice with those boots) or a shorter one with nude tights. Gives less of a contrast.

I quite like this at the moment and think it will go well with the boots.

Oh ok. Heres me buying brown thinking they would make a change from black boots!

I'd also wear those boots with blue jeans and wear black boots with the black jeans, they are quite a bright brown. Tops lovely though.

You defiantly need a blue jean or dark indigo for those boots, or like life said wear a dress and nude/bare legs. The top is ok, there is nothing wrong with it but I'm not blown away.

Thanks Bluntness 100.
What sort of top or dress should i go for then BusterGonad?

I'm going to go against the grain and say wear them with black skinnies. But how tall are you? This may make all the difference.

My go to shop for dresses is Oasis, I love it. I would post some pics but used my limit....god knows on what though!

theothersideof40 Sun 15-Jan-17 15:29:51

Oh ok ememem84. Im 5ft4 ☺

BusterGonad Sun 15-Jan-17 15:30:04

If you wear the boots with black jeans then I think a cream too would look good.

BusterGonad Sun 15-Jan-17 15:30:36

Top

ememem84 Sun 15-Jan-17 16:11:22

Yeah you could do it. I'd also go for cream top

BusterGonad Sun 15-Jan-17 16:19:13

If I had those boots I'd wear a chunky cream cable knit slouchy cardigan over a patterned t shirt or something. Then a dusty pink lipstick to bring it all together.

theothersideof40 Sun 15-Jan-17 16:28:04

Ok thanks everyone. You have given me some good ideas will have a look for some cream tops etc. Might try n find a long sleeved (hate winter arms)!!

Thanks ohb0llocks. I dont really want to have to buy anymore shoes 😢

Ohb0llocks Sun 15-Jan-17 21:34:58

You can never have enough shoes wink

LiefieLiefie Sun 15-Jan-17 21:42:50

Have a look at the pyjama style blouses. Lots of cream ones around.

theothersideof40 Sun 15-Jan-17 21:44:58

Well you are right about the shoes 😲

BusterGonad Mon 16-Jan-17 05:47:33

Maybe this?

theothersideof40 Mon 23-Jan-17 14:58:03

Do you think this will go with brown boots?
