My engagement shoot is in about month so this morning I have been doing some online shopping and want to know what people thought of my purchases so far.
For a couple of months I have envisioned myself in a red coat so the first thing I bought this morning was this:
I then started looking for some black boots since I thought black would go best with red BUT then I found these and fell inlove and purchased them straight away! I usually ponder on my purchases for at least half an hour since I am so indecisive but I felt like I just NEEDED these!
Now for the dilemma – will brown shoes go with a red coat? I am not very fashionable so have no idea and would love the opinions of some fashionable bees
Also, I am thinking of wearing jeans. I haven’t decided on light or dark denim but something like these:

Janelle123: I love the coat. The shoes are cute but I wouldn’t wear the 2 together. Since the coat is so bright I would probably wear dark denim and dark(er) shoes. Have you tried it on together yet??

I agree with the above PP. The coat is cute, but the brown boots will clash. I would definitely do a black boot and the dark jeans. What climate are you in that you’ll be able to take your engagement photos in a coat in one month? I’m jealous! It’s hot as hell here!

gelaine22: I can’t try them on yet because it will be a couple of weeks before they arrive (ordered online). I think you may be right about the shoes. Any ideas about what shoes would look good with the coat and dark jeans? I have some black leather mid-calf flat boots that I think would probably work but I wear them almost every day so wanted to get something new.

Jacket is great. Shoes IMO are eh. I wouldn’t put them together. I would do a black knee high boot with dark jeans.

The red coat w black buttons, brown boots w silver hardware are too much together IMO. And I’d do the black/ darker jeans with the coat or either pair with the boots. Since the coat is long I think some booties would look cute though can’t go wrong either way.

TheLadyA : Haha I’m in NZ so it’s winter here. Don’t be jealous! I’m jealous of you! It’s been so cold here. Though yesterday it was 18C (64F) which is considerably warmer than it has been but I think that it may have just been the calm before the storm because we are expecting -3C (27F) overnight tomorrow 🙁

Janelle123: Holy crap! That’s quite a temperature fluctuation!! I could use a little cool air but sheesh!!! Lol. It’s been consistently in the upper 90’s and I feel like melting. Plus the humidity is making my hair look crazy lol!!
Do you have a pic of your black boots? They sound like they’ll work better with your coat. The coat is so pretty that it should be the main focus anyway 🙂

TheLadyA : I may have been misleading by telling you the high for yesterday and the low for tomorrow. The high tomorrow is going to be 8C (46F) so still quite a difference but not so extreme lol.
Here are my black boots. They are a little bit scruffy looking so I’ll give them a polish if I decide to use them.
Hmm it appears that maybe I have a thing for buckles lol… maybe I should go with something more plain?
ETA: I got a couple of weird looks and laughs when I took my shoe off, put in on my desk and took a photo haha
