Obsessed with slides – A summer footwear essential

Is anyone else out there getting a bit excited about the fact that summer is on it’s way? Silly question? 

I am, and starting to think about making a few purchases to update my summer wardrobe. Top of my list has to be a pair of slides. I can’t do heels, but some of these come with a bit of a flat wedge, meaning added height and comfort.

My search has become a bit of an obsession, I tend to get an idea in my head of exactly what I want then spend ages hunting down the perfect item. 

Anyway I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my favourites, that I have come across so far. 

 These ones from Deichmann are so simple and chic. They also come in black and a pale pink. At £17.99 they are a bit of a steal aswell. 

 

I love the tropical print on this pair from New look, £15.99 

Now this next pair by Sophia Webster at  Net A Porter I absolutely adore, at £195 they are way beyond my budget. One can dream I suppose. Here’s to hoping someone on the high street comes up with a dupe. 

  

This next pair are techniquelly not a slide but the flatform sole has the same feel. I love the pink jelly style. They also come in a cute purple colour. These are on offer at £10 from Wynsors world of shoes.  

 

There are plenty of slides to choose from out that so I don’t think it will be too hard for me to find my perfect pair. I shall keep you posted. 

Are you planning on any pre summer purchases? It’s very tempting now the sun is out, and the shops are brimming with new collections. 

Bye for now, Katy 🙂

Obsessed With White Jeans

One of my favourite times of year, on the fashion calender, is when the new spring/summer collections start arriving in the shops. Now that we are approaching the end of the January sales these are starting to pop up on the high street. One particular item that has come under my radar is brilliantly white skinny jeans. Highly impractical, particularly as a mum I know, but boy do I want a pair. I shall just have to keep them for best or failing that stock up on vanish he, he.

I have spent a fair bit of time scouring various retailers on-line just to see what styles are available, prior to me taking a shopping trip and trying my favourites on. Let’s just hope I find that perfectly fitting pair. I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my favourites so far.

OOTD – The £10 Primark outfit – avoiding shopping mistakes.

Hi guys, so the title is a teeny bit of a stretch, those boots did not come from Primark. The rest of this ensemble did though.

I was having a little shop the other day and came across this checked smock dress in the sales for £5. The print I loved instantly, but I was a bit unsure about the cut, but after trying it on I decided this was a do. This is something I’m going to have to remind myself to do in future;
a) It breaks me out of my comfort zone.
b) It stops me making any hideous clothing mistakes.
c) It’s only a bargain if you actually wear purchase, not just chuck it in the back of the wardrobe. (Go on admit it, we’ve all been there).

To go with this I picked up some accessories in contrasting colours.

The burgundy soft knit tights were a steal at £2, The snood was also at £2. I had already seen on another girls blog Justalittlebitgingerthat Primark had some pretty costume Jewellery for as little as one pound. Though I thought her pick was really pretty this one matched my outfit better. I kind of wish is picked up both though, damn being sensible.

The cardigan and boots I already and and had pre-emoted that they would finish of this outfit. The boots are from Very.co.uk, I did a more detailed post about this HEREI. The cardigan is a hand me down from my sister, we do a lot of clothes and make-up swapping.

I’m very pleased with this outfit, I was bored of Jeans and jumpers, it’s been cold lately. This is a nice change and still quite warm.

Bye for now, Katy 🙂

The studded biker boot – my winter staple

These Boots have to be up there with my favourite purchases of 2014. Buying footwear is always a bit tricky for me. I love shoes, and have always been a shoe rather than a bag lady. Unfortunately I am unable to wear heels anymore, so my shoe collection has become somewhat neglected. (Damn scholiosis!) This aside I still appreciate a fab pair of shoes. Shoe shopping just takes me a bit longer.

This particular pair of boots took me a long time to find. I needed comfort but didn’t want to compromise on style. I also wanted a pair that was versatile enough to be worn with both trousers and skirts.

This is the pair I ended up with, and I am not disappointed. Let me introduce the Estelle boot by Fearne Cotton from Very.co.uk. Priced at a very reasonable £64 these are worth every penny.

For me they tick all the right boxes, when it comes to my personal requirements.

•water resistant.
•comfortable.
•stylish.
•multifunctional.
•long wearing.

If you are in the market for a new pair of boots these are definitely worth checking out. My next mission is to find a dressy flat sandal, any pointers as to wear to look would be welcome.
