All The Shoes from Next

Horrah for spring! It’s my favourite time of the year, the colours, a little more heat, every one just has an extra lift in their step!  And what better way to enjoy the change than in a new pair of shoes from Next.

I wrote a post recently about how Next were keeping well and truly on top of the trends and this smoothly follows through to their footwear collection.  From bold colours to different proportions, finer details to stand out style, they have got it all!

My idea was to choose a pair of shoes that filled a gap in my wardrobe.  So I was looking for one thing – a block heel, and I had plenty of choice!  But after lots of trying on (a lot of my try on time was with flats but I resisted!), I kept coming back to these…

Admittedly, I was put off by the black.  I don’t often wear dark colours on my feet (light coloured shoes are essential for flattering leg proportions!), and it was spring I was shopping for – black is not the first colour you think of in spring!  But the suede and leather contrast, the simple bow to the side, the peep toe ticked the other boxes, making it hard for me to resist.  And I actually already had the perfect outfit in my head anyway – they fitted the brief.

I was due a night out for dinner and drinks.  I don’t usually get too dressed up for these occasions but the heels generally come out.  If you follow on Instagram, you will see these trousers feature a lot for both dressy and casual occasions and I planned to team them with a pre-loved t-shirt from Deja Vu (originally Cos) and my new boots.  A perfect nod to the ongoing monochrome trend!  And here is the final look…

Unfortunately I cannot find the link for these lovely peep toe boots online but I spotted them instore today…

And this will be the look for another outing…once I get the fake tan back on my legs again;)

Thanks to Next for the shopping inspiration and for my lovely new boots:)

The Shirt (that is neither blue nor white)

Anyone looking into my wardrobe will spot that my current favourite item of clothing is the shirt and this season is set to lure me in a little further as shirts are everywhere.  Well, I would be lured in if I could find a shirt that was neither blue nor white!

So of course the frill and ruffle is a big thing, the addition of bows, ribbons, badges, the bigger the sleeve the better; all …read more

How to Hold a Fashion Swap

For ages now I have wanted to hold a fashion swap at my home.  I regularly clear out and with that, some of the items go to the bin, some to charity and some on to a rail with the intention of selling them.  But I still hold too much value on many of the items I am trying to sell, so they never sell for as much as I’d like.  I would rather …read more
