Mum on the Run – New red shiny Topshop shoes and a story to make you all feel better….

Today’s post was meant to be the “how to wear naturals” post but I’m interrupting it to bring you the news that I definitely should not be allowed out of the house. To anyone concerned about themselves, I am sure that this will make you feel better!

Today was one of those surreal days. It started off with us having to abandon the car to get to school because there was a fire on the High Street and all of the roads were cordoned off by the police. That in itself was odd for around here – the fire, not the roads being shut – although come to think of it, last time I went in to that particular shoe shop they didn’t have much stock as it had all just been stolen. Say no more.

Then I when I was in Birmingham doing the returns from last week’s event, I realised that I couldn’t find my receipt for Zara and with nearly £500 worth of clothes to return, that had the potential to cause me some difficulty. I had visions of asking my friend to put it all on eBay for me to try and recoup the loss.  However the Manager, Leanne, really put herself out and having pleaded with head office they agreed to give me a full refund, which was astonishing. I said that I felt like hugging her but that would be in a little inappropriate but she said to go ahead anyway, so I did. So that too was all a bit surreal.

Finally, and this is the point at which I really felt like I had started to lose the plot, I found myself in the “Build a Bear Workshop” standing in front of the racks of clothes, debating which outfit to buy for our daughter’s rabbit for our weekend away. Such was the pressure (self inflicted) to get it right, I nearly had a melt down. I’d far rather source a whole wardrobe for a client than choose an outfit for Daisy the rabbit .  Having spent more on a set of PJ’s, slippers and a beach outfit for this rabbit than I have ever spent on our real, actual, proper, children I told the assistant that it was officially time to section me.  How I have managed to make it home, collect the children from school and cook their dinner, I have no idea.

Whilst all of the above was going on, this was what I was wearing – minus the new red shiny shoes which I bought today from Topshop – without incident I hasten to add.

NW3 blazer that I have had my eye on since last summer and which I recently bought in the sale at a drastically reduced price;

GAP high waisted skinny jeans which I fear are on their way out now – too comfortable, they must be losing their shape!

H&M neon T-shirt – a bargain at £7.99

Whistles scarf

Kausar cross body bag – required to keep receipts/credit cards etc safe and within easy reach whilst shopping!

 

Now, as to the shoes…

 

 

 

These are Topshop clog sandals (£45). I’ve always loved wooden soled shoes and had my first pair from Freeman Hardy and Willis (remember them) when I took a size 13. The pair after that were never as good as those first ones.

I’ve also had some pink Scholls but every time I tried to walk fast I walked out of them and did myself an injury. Anyway, I’ve had my eye on something like this for a while and liked a style that Topshop did a couple of years ago, as well as the range by Swedish Hasbeens for H&M last summer. None of them were quite right though but I loved the colour of these as soon as I saw them. The fact that whilst they have a heel on them they are easy to walk in is a real bonus for someone who would like to be just that little bit taller.

      I think we all have our moments don't we?! You are so right about red shoes, there's just something about them that's so compelling!

      Thanks Marie, I'm hoping to get a lot of wear out of it. Having languished in the store over the winter, I took it as a sign that it should now be mine!

      Hi Honor, I meant to check the name of the jacket before leaving for a weekend away but forgot, sorry. It's last summer's stock but Bicester may have some.

    I have a pair of Toffeln clogs which I bought a few years ago from Cath K just for around the house etc. Everyone laughs at them but I don't care because they are the comfiest shoes I own!
