Ruins and Combat Boots

Boots: Primark, Bag: Primark, Ring: Vintage, Jacket: Forever 21, Dress: Forever 21
Another week, another outfit paired with sturdy boots and a military inspired box jacket, I just can't seem to get enough of the Utility Trend this season! This time I went for a contrasting look, pairing a very feminine, somewhat old fashioned styled dress with the jacket and boots. I then added my Nan's beautiful engagement ring, again to add further contrast to the toughness of the jacket and the boots (plus its pretty and sparkly!)

Personally, I love the contrast between the tom-boyishness of the boots and the girliness of the dress, as I feel with my height and looks, if I wore this dress with something more feminine I'd look like a 12 year old girl going to a birthday party. Although I do seem to resemble a 12 year old girl more often than I'd like....

The photos were taken in York Museum Gardens, which for those of you who are die hard fans of my blog out there (seriously doubting any of you are, but a gal can dream right?) will know is where I have taken other outfit posts, which you can read here. Last time, the photos featured and explored the vast expanses of grass and flower beds that the beautiful gardens have. But this time I thought I'd feature the ruins of St. Mary's Abbey, a Medieval Abbey that was shut down by Henry VIII, and then subsequently had all its valuable lead and stone stolen, this being all that remains.

The archway and the one remaining wall really gives a clue as to how huge this Abbey once was, and the grandeur that was held within. If you're ever in York I recommend you take a meander through the remaining archway, and imagine for yourself how wonderful this place must've looked.

P.S. What does everyone else think of the current Utility trend, are you are lover or a hater?
