I still love red but as the weather starts to chill I seek a cooler tone of red and when mixed with blue (how I'm feeling as the summer ends) I end up with purple. I had forgotten about this dress I last wore in the Spring. I bought it from Next with vouchers I was given for my birthday. It is just a tad too short and when the wind blows it rises a little too far which keeps me on my toes. The boots are new - from Clarks. I bought them in the summer sale and they were reduced to half-price - £44 for leather boots which will last me years.
