Today, shoes featured quite heavily in my day. I had two meetings at opposite ends of town so predictably I had a pair of trainers with me just in case but these M&S block heeled leopard print shoes are so comfortable that I didn’t have to change – which is a rarity for me when walking a distance. And it’s really odd but whenever I wear these shoes, people always ask me where I got them from. They are always shocked by the response!
Clearly I only have one dress. This is the same Pia dress that I featured only a couple of days ago but I was on the ‘phone whilst trying to get dressed so I had to go for something easy/stretchy and which wouldn’t end up in me doing myself an injury. It was then easy just to thrown on the shoes and jacket before heading out of the door. I think that here I am wearing the dress slightly longer than at other times of the day but that’s what I like about it – it can be worn longer or shorter and I’ve even been known to put it on upside down – but that was in error.
On the way back across town there were four shops that were directly in my path, so they each got the once over. Jigsaw was first and although I tried on a couple of dresses, there was nothing that I loved enough (or more importantly which loved me enough) to justify buying it. Then, having felt a little bad about my comment about White Stuff yesterday, that too got a visit, just in case it had the perfect summer dress – but it didn’t. It did have plenty of skirts though…
Then it was the turn of Coast, where I looked lovingly at the Ariel shoe (Coast £65 down to £30) but I concluded that, much as I liked them. I really didn’t need these shoes in my life. Although looking at them again maybe I was wrong about that. I don’t know about you but I always feel that it is important to acknowledge when one is wrong about something and to try to do something to fix it….
And these are what I bought today – wait for it – the Jack Wills Castley flip flop (£14.50) – I know, hardly a purchase of designer shoe magnitude. I’ve had a pair of Cath Kidston flip flops for a couple of years now but they are looking a little tired and given that they haven’t included any in their collection this year, I have had to look elsewhere. For some reason I like a print on the base of the flip flop and the top part is my perfect shade of pink.
So that’s my round up of the shoes I wore, the shoes I saw and the shoes I bought – for today at least!
