Five Footwear Favourites
So from my recent clear out I've picked my top 5 favourite shoes I've been throwing on my feet this Summer and since the Summers been a indecisivie mismatch of seasonal weather they're all rather appropriate.
Leopard Print Office Loafers
I picked these up in Office quite a while back and they sat in their box for a good few weeks before i summoned the courage to venture out. They're made from soft faux pony hair so i was worried that the first time i would wear them I'd step straight out my front door, into a giant muddy puddle and ruin them forever. However after coating them with a good amount of suede protector and testing them out in the rain they haven't been off my feet since! The sturdy loafer shape means you do have to wear them in but once you have they are the most comfortable flats. The patterned isn't too much of a garish print and they're great for adding texture, pattern and colour to my monochromatic wardrobe.
Oasis Tan Block Heel Ankle Boots
Oh these boots... I spotted them on ASOS and was eyeing them up for a good few weeks before i decided they're totally worth the £68 splurge. Although at the time when i ventured onto ASOS my size was out of stock and i'll admit i waiting 1hr continously refreshing the page until that fabulous person dropped them from their basket. They're real leather which means they're rediculously soft and the classic boot to wear from day to night with flattering cut, pretty detailing and comfortable heel height.
Dorothy Perkins Nude Gold Stud Loafers
I've been over anything studded for months, the trends passed and that means we can finally pick up an item of clothing or accessory that isn't pinned with metal hard-wear. However these shoes were a definite keep when i was sorting out my shoe rack. The tiny gold studded detailing adds a pretty look to what is generally a plain nude loafer and that means they can also add some sparkle to an outfit and casual glamour to your tootsies. They're a great throw on and go shoe when your undecided as to whether tan or black shoes go better with your chosen shade of bag.
Topshop Ash Cut Out Boots
I purchased these in the Topshop Winter sale last year. I'd been on the hunt for some ash ankle boots for months and could never find the right shade or heel height. Guaranteed I'd prefer if these had a little more height but their cut out detailing and perfect ash brown shade (not to mention they were half price) made them an instant purchase. They're the perfect everyday boot and so comfortable with their western shape and loose ankle straps (which can be adjusted). I've been teaming them with anything from my double split maxi skirt to my cami midi dress to my khaki pleated midi skirt.
Topshop Black Ballet Pump
These have to be the ultimate throw on and go type of ballet shoe with their loose faux leather fit and flexible sole. I'll admit they aren't the most comfortable when walking over rocky terrain due to their thin ballet shoe soles however I've popped in a pair of sheep wool cushioned insoles and for wondering around the shops they're perfect. I tend to throw these on when i'm running errands or popping to the shops but they're also great for throwing in your handbag for those killer heel days.
