Why You Need A Pair Of Pointed Shoes

Colours aside, if there’s one shoe trend that incorporates all colours, prints, lengths, heights, shoes, boots and any other word you can think of to describe a pair of shoes, it’s pointed shoes. Points are in. I am a big fan of this trend and have already amassed a pointed shoe collection to be proud of and I can confirm that us big footed girls can quite happily rock the trend with the best of them. Just be careful of the style of point you go for, maybe the extreme point on these Balenciagas aren’t for you? Mules and kitten heel shoes are something I have already invested in and am still looking to build my collection of. Theres something about a point and a kitten heel that just make the perfect combo and when paired with denim make smart casual gold. I already have a shoe and a boot in black but have been eyeing up these nude patent boots for the summer and Zara have some incredible gingham shoes in right now. Mules are also a great way of wearing pointed shoes and also like the perfect transitional style. I don’t have a pair of these yet but I know it won’t be long until I do . .  like the length of time it takes for them to be delivered . . If, like me, you’re not ready to let go of the boots yet then make it pointed. It’s not all pointed shoes, pointed boots count too you know! I’ve been after the perfect pair of over the knee’s for literally all winter every winter. NEVER find them but may have found a summer pair in these gorge Mango ones. Now just need to decide how much wear I’d get out of them . . but they would look great with my new skirt. Balenciaga also do these insane floral print boots which Topshop have thankfully duped for those of us that don’t have a Balenciaga budget! Those Chanel mules have been on my mind since the day I saw them and good old Topshop have done it again on the dupe front with these babies in pink and the Chanel nude. I said it before and I’ll say it again, when it comes to pointed shoes, mules are the best transitional style to invest in. But then of course there’s always the holy grail of pointed shoes in the court shoe. I love the brightly coloured red ones and have you seen this incredible Manolo Blahnik bejewelled pair?!

Out & About with Otterbox

Otterbox are quite frankly the gods of phone cases. Let me take you back a couple of weeks to when my world/phone came smashing down to pieces. Was it in a phone case? Yes. Did it have a protective screen on? Yes. Did any of the above work? No. You see, when you work on your phone, it’s not just a cracked screen, it’s a broken life line. And yes I am aware of how melo dramatic this sound but to all the bloggers out there . . I know you feel me. So it felt like if there is a god out there, he was looking over me when the next day I was in contact with Otterbox. Who are Otterbox? A company that make phone cases that actually protect your phone . . who knew.

Modern Femininity with Hush

Style Personality. Have you got one? I could never really put my finger on a particular type of style I have which figures because when I took the Hush style personality test I found out, I’m a hybrid. Hush describe modern femininity as “pretty yet practical” I think we can all agree that that’s pretty much me in a nutshell. Yes I like pink but I also love jeans. I may like to wear a heel, but it’s never going to be high enough to make my feet ache . .  that’s just not how I roll.

The £20 Gingham Top you need Right Now

I’ve had this top for a while now and it was only when I plucked it from my wardrobe to wear the other day that I truly appreciated it’s brilliance. You’ve probably been seeing it here there and everywhere so you certainly won’t be needing me to tell you how on trend gingham is right now. As Alex from The Frugality said, for once florals may actually be beaten for the print of the season!

5 Things to Consider When Investing in Cashmere

The older I get the more my priorities shift in terms of buying clothing. Don’t get me wrong my minor obsession with Sheinside and their amazing £15 tops is going no where, but when it comes to staples, I want to start investing. Cashmere is something I’ve always loved the sound of owning but also just always linked it with . . well . . boring. I never seem to see super nice knitwear in cashmere, maybe I’m looking in the wrong places but to me, a cashmere jumper has always been a plain v neck. Well not anymore, I’ve recently discovered Charli and their range of beautiful pieces in amazing fabrics. I think I just found my source for investing in basics.
