Silver Plait Flip Flop

The sun has tentatively been peering out from behind the clothes this week, so I decided to write about some summer footwear. I have absolutely no luck with sandals, they never last more than a couple of months. It usually begins with a soaking in the rain and ens in scuffed toes and detached soles.

I have tried cheap sandals, and expensive ones but nothing seems to last very long. Perhaps I am a heavy stomper? I brought these flip flops from Primark for around £5 last summer (2012) and to be honest I am not sure I can dare wear these out.

I love summer, and can not wait for an opportunity to consider wearing these sandals or to go out and buy some new ones!

Dark Brown heels

Probably one of my fondest pair of heels, they are not very me but I brought these shoes for my first grown up job working in buying. The work code was business dress and was in 2007, I modelled my work wardrobe on Ugly Betty and these fit the mould perfectly. The heels have a small heels so I was able to wear them throughout the day. I hated being the trainers to work girl.

Luckily for me after less than a year the work code changed to smart-casual, so these heels were shelved. I am sure in twenty years time when I start wearing Hobbs and Jaeger. As you proably guessed these shoes are from Topshop as well!

Tan Weaved Brogues

My love of brown shoes continues with these summer brogues. I brought them a couple of years  ago from Topshop for around £35. I love weaved leather accessories so the shoes has a strong pull on me. I haven't worn them that many times as they are still a bit tight, I need to wear them in a bit longer. I can't wait for them to become beaten up and well worn. These will be great shoes some day soon!

The last time I wore these was with a bright yellow sun dress to work! Perfect outfit.

White Tennis Sneakers

These white beauties, where a purchase of necessity. I was on my way to the gym one evening and realised that I had forgotten to bring my trainers. There weren't many shops, so I had to head to Marks and Spencers and raid the shoe department. Eventually I found these simple white tennis shoes for less than £20. I also loved the blue and white dot pattern inside.

I have only worn these once but I like the idea that they may come in handy again!!!

Pink Jellie Shoes

A blast from the past...jellie shoes, remember these? I used to wear them between the ages of five and seven (I imagine). I was out shopping last summer (2012) and I think either my shoes broke or it was too hot anyway I decided to purchase this pair of baby pink jelly shoes, partly because I thought they were cute and secondly because they were the cheapest thing in the shop!!!!

Purchased from Office for around £15 they were a great small investment although they do rub slightly. Although these are really only for summer I wore the sandals on Saturday night to and from my friends party. They make perfect travelling shoes when you want to wear a pair of ginormous heels.

Sale Shopping

So one of my new favourite shopping places to frequent in London is 'Opening Ceremony', truly it is inspiring crammed full of beautiful fashion pieces (unfortunately the price tags are a little out of my range). Anyway I popped in quickly today before going to meet my friend for coffee and almost brought these amazing Kenzo SS12 sandals...

I was clearly having a Carrie Bradshaw moment, and they were reduced by 75%!!! I love them, but you know sometimes you have to be practical.

Pink/Pewter Mules

My heels are definitely of their time, can you remember the last time you saw an open toe mule? These were brought around 2005, when the whole vintage/1920s look was really kicking off. I loved the leather and suede details. I think mules are coming back though, I have seen alot in Kurt geiger and the like.

As its getting closer to spring I may give these shoes another wirl, they may be a bit tattered and dirty but that just adds to the vintage appeal!!!
