To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
I went to a festival this weekend and I realized that I am seriously missing something very important in my wardrobe. Hint: Courtney Trops favorite type of shoes. (based on her feed, not actually a fact)
Not because I saw a couple of cool girls wearing some cool shoes that I made me feel “oh I wanna look as cool as them”. No. I realized this when I was trying out outfits at home. That every single outfit that I tried on would look so much better if only I had these shoes. I seriously wanted to wear them with everything.
I know that it’s only summer and we should all live in the now. However, is it really that bad to look forward sometimes, and invest for future seasons? I think not.
So it started with me trying on loads of dresses. I paired them with sneakers, with flip flops and with cowboy boots. It just didn’t feel right. At the moment, I thought that it was rubber boots a la Prada that I wanted to pair all of my dresses with.
I soon realized that it wasn’t actually the rubber boots per se that I was missing. These platform Gucci loafers would for sure do the same job for me.
I was never a platform-person. Thank god for being open for change, right? These platform loafers would not only do the job right, it would have also helped me actually catch a glimpse of that cute little singer in Greta Van Fleet this weekend.
So what I was missing was a pair of grungy shoes. Yes, that category of shoes is as wide as my shoe wardrobe is full. But I figure, one in one out? Again – Someone to look at for inspiration in this area? Courtney Trop aka Alwaysjudging on instagram. Your’e welcome!
