My One Thing…

I haven’t written one of these posts in a while for two reasons.  Number One – I am trying to appreciate all the things I already have in my wardrobe, and Number Two – as the season has changed, frankly there are too many things I want!

One essential item for my wardrobe at this time of the year is a pair of trainers. I have a few favourite ways to style the trainer – skinny jeans with a turn-up, boyfriend jeans with a slouchy top or a pencil skirt.  My Lee Cooper version of Converse are well and truly worn out, they were never off my feet last summer and I have continued to slip them on any day I was prepared to get the ankles out!

I haven’t really been lured in by the 90’s trend – I lived through it and hated my wardrobe as a teenager so why go back?!  That was until I nearly bought another pair of brogues – enough is enough (for now!), so the trainer search began!

Being a size 6/7 I can often look to the men’s section, where I found a really cute pair of Puma’s (I’m imagining the men who bought the trainer didn’t describe them quite like this!) – they were in the sale in ASOS and they were my first step into the 90’s trainer.  They sold out pretty fast, so my search continued.  And this is what I came up with…

As you can see most of my choices are light coloured, always my top tip for extending leg length (a must for me!).

Or maybe a little extravagance?!


If I’m buying the Chanel trainers, I may as well have the bag…

Are you sold on the trainer trend?

    There will always be trainers in my wardrobe but probably more stylish ones now after reading this post. Can we have more posts on shoes please especially flat shoes that are not pumps yet trendy!!

    ha! that’s so funny, was picturing these type of trainers when I replied about the dress. I live in trainers, high tops, 1 stars etc. Think I may be stuck in the glory days of the 90s!! Think I will go New Balance. Good idea about the men’s section too.

    I’m warming to the trainer trend. Bought my first ever pair of Converse last year! Go Chanel, always a winner! x

    I totally agree that lighter coloured trainers are much kinder on the old legs. Have you decided on a pair yet?

      I might just have bought the white New Balance pair;) Fingers crossed they are perfect!

    I have a gorgeous pair of Adidas ZXs that were a gift but I so want a pair of dark NBs! Ax
