Aussie Curves: Boots Challenge

Thanks to the wonderful Danimezza, I'm now part of an Australian plus size blogging community, and we have started doing a challenge together each week. This week is boots, and as I only have one pair, this was easy! Apologies for the photo quality- in my backyard there was the option of full sun where you couldn't see me, or shade, which is what I went with.

I have wanted boots for a long time, but only found my pair last year at Autograph. They were a new venture for them, having not sold footwear before. They sold out quickly, and I was overjoyed to find a pair of boots to fit my problematic legs. My calves are very wide (50 cm), I can't stand heels (I have very flat feet) and my feet are size 11. So shoe shopping is usually problematic and annoying for me. I had given up on boots until I came across these, and they ticked all the boxes.

I paired them with my jersey dress from Asos Curve, which is comfy and bright. It picks up lint from my jackets badly and has funny seams over my boobs, but I forgive all because bright colours. I'm wearing a new belt from Asos Curve. I like belts, but you see my problem with them in the photos, it just can't stay around my natural waist. It likes to ride up. Yes on my blog, I tell you about the annoying things my clothes do.

I hope you enjoyed my first Aussie Curves post, and that you check out some of the other ladies' awesome efforts. Autograph boots are currently half price so I recommend you check them out online and in-store.
