My High Heels Collection

Since my teenage years I have always really loved the look of high heels, however since then my tastes have changed dramatically and while I still love heels, I will no longer buy ones that are horrendously painful just because they look amazing They have to be reasonably comfortable and where possible I will buy ‘wide fit’ to save my little toes from the horrendous blisters they are prone to. Having this mindset also helps me save money, as well as keeping my feet happy (not that I get the chance to wear heels often)! Any shoes that make my feet cry are currently being put on or have been sold on eBay – bye-bye, you will hurt me no more!

I thought I would share my remaining collection with you today and link the ones that are still currently available. 🙂 I hope you enjoy having a nosey into my shoe-drobe. If you like this post you might also like to take a look at My Boots Collection!

My Boots Collection

As it’s now Autumn and Winter will be upon us in no time I thought I’d share all the boots I currently own! Boots are the Winter footwear of choice (although trainers are always a winner too) so it felt like a good time to show them, as well as being good for me to see what I already own so I know what I can add to the collection this year. 😉

Of course most of these boots are old from past years so it’s unlikely they’ll still be available but I’ll try my best to find something similar. Most of these are casual but there are a couple of pairs that I would probably reserve for dressier occasions.

topshop-maggie-pewter-flared-heel-boots-silver-metallic
My newest pair of boots so still available from Topshop (£70)
office-black-flat-boots-buckle-quilted-suede
A well loved pair from Office last year. (Similar £42, similar £53)
office-brown-chelsea-riding-boots
Probably my most worn pair of boots, from Office (£78) last year, which apparently they’ve brought back with a higher price tag… I would not have paid £78… They are fab though.
topshop-ambush-black-acne-pistol-boots
These were from Topshop and the style was called ‘AMBUSH’ and they were majorly inspired by the Acne Pistol boots. Not worn these much and yet they look a bit worse for wear! (Similar £80)
topshop-black-boots-cleated-heels-sole
These were from Topshop and they have some similar ones available here (£39)
new-look-black-boots-platform-boots-zip-up
These were from New Look
office-nicola-calf-knee-high-boots-flat
These were from Office. (Very similar £95)
london-rebel-strappy-buckle-straps-boots-grey
These I got from TK Maxx and are from the brand London Rebel (similar £95)
h-and-m-moccasin-boots-grey-fringe-taupe-fringed
These were from H&M years ago and are moccasin style. Not worn these much!
primark-brown-tan-fringed-ankle-boots-moccasins-moccasin
Old moccasin style boots from Primark, barely worn these either but they’re very comfortable (similar £39.99 or similar £49.99)
zara-pale-blue-pastel-sky-boots-heeled
These cuties were from Zara

So there we have it. All the boots I own. I don’t wear all of them enough tbh so I’ll try and wear them more this Winter, and if I don’t I guess I might as well get rid of some next Spring. I would like to add a new pair of flat black boots, something classy and smart but comfortable. I also really would love a leopard print pair, I’m eyeing up these from Next (£60) and might ask for them for Christmas or my birthday. 🙂

Comfiest Shoes Ever: Nike Juvenate

Trainers have not traditionally been the most ‘fashionable’ of shoes however over the past year or so trainers have become rather on trend. This can surely only be a good thing for everyone, those who love trainers can rejoice in them being ‘in’ and everyone can go about their lives in a delightful degree of comfort. However, not all trainers I’ve ever worn have been comfortable. Many still give you the same blisters and wear-in time as other types of shoe meaning this major perceived ‘pro’ of trainers is redundant. These Nike bad boys however, are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. I struggled and still do struggle to stop myself wearing them every time I leave the house. They might look pretty good for trainers but they still don’t go with everything so I do have to stop myself.

nike-juvenate-womens-wolf-grey-3nike-juvenate-womens-wolf-grey-2nike-juvenate-womens-wolf-grey

I only found out about them because my sister had a pair she got last year. She wore them all the time so one day when I just saw them lying around I decided to try one on and immediately I wanted my own pair! I wasn’t always sure about the style and look of them at first, however, they had grown on me and once I’d felt the squishy sole and stretchy upper I was sold.

They are a sock style trainer that you just pull and slip on. Basically, the laces don’t really serve a purpose other than for show but they can help keep the shoe more secure if you tie them tightly. The upper is a flexible mesh which is amazing for someone like me who always gets blisters on their little toes. As it’s so stretchy there’s nothing to make my foot cramped enough to develop blisters. It is breathable which also helps prevent blisters and keeps your feet cool. The sole is so squishy and cushioned it’s like walking on foam, or even a cloud if I may be dramatic. They are also really lightweight which feels so nice, it really makes you realise how heavy a lot of shoes are so it is freeing to wear something so light!

Due to the mesh upper they are not waterproof at all, so this is something to be aware of. They are not something you can throw on on a rainy day! I just wear them for casual day to day outings and walks so I don’t know if they would be a good gym or running shoe – I don’t go to the gym or run. xD I did climb a Welsh mountain in them though and they were great!

From what I saw when I was researching which ones to buy, Juvenates come in quite a few colours and designs. I went for grey as it’s super versatile and less stark than black or white. I bought mine at Zalando with a substantial discount. The RRP for these trainers seems to be £72, however, if you’re savvy and shop around you’re bound to be able to get a saving on that.

That concludes this more unusual post, a ‘shoe review’ if you will. But I just had to share these as I think everyone should experience this comfort! They may not be to everyone’s taste aesthetically, but I challenge anyone to say they’re not very comfortable!

New In My Wardrobe: from ASOS

Another ASOS order was placed not long after I returned from my holiday. I will not pretend to have a reason or excuse, I just love getting an ASOS parcel through the door; it brightens my day! However, one thing that encouraged me was I had two £5 vouchers I could use that I received via the new ASOS loyalty scheme “ASOS A-List“. I am SO happy they decided to create a loyalty scheme! As a loyal customer anyway, this is such an amazing ‘reward’ to now gain every time I place an order. They are literally my go-to. Amazing delivery and returns policy, student discount which is often boosted to 20% off and the most incredible range of fashion and beauty. I am such an ASOS fangirl.

Anyway, on to what I bought in my latest order.

New In Asos-002
ASOS Lace Insert Slip Cami Top £25
New In Asos-003
ASOS The Ultimate Vest in Grey £5
New In Asos-004
ASOS FERGUS Cross Strap Leather Sandals £22
New In Asos-001
ASOS Sleeveless Top with Contrast Tie in Ponte £18
New In Asos
ASOS Ankle Grazer Cigarette Trousers in Crepe ON SALE NOW £14

I love the little pink top, although it is a lot more pink than the picture suggests on the ASOS website which makes it appear a pale pink! It’s definitely brighter, leaning towards a peachy pink. It had been in my ‘Save for Later’ for months so with the ASOS A-List vouchers in my mind I thought I’d finally buy it and see what it was like. I’m very happy I did because it’s adorable. I modelled it here on my Instagram. 😉 And the grey vest top is just an essential basic piece isn’t it really?

I’d had my eye on the white sandals months and months ago but never bought them. Then recently Sammi commented they were the comfiest sandals she’d ever worn or something along those lines so that just made me go for it and she’s so right! ❤ They are VERY comfortable and look great too. A bargain purchase.

The last two pieces I got with workwear in mind… The trousers are a nice fit although a bit baggier around the ankle than I would ideally like. The little white top is lovely, it’s quite weighty and I would definitely wear it casually too.

I’m hoping to post a photo diary of my holiday next so make sure you’re following me if you want to see what Kefalonia, Greece is like 🙂

Latest in my Wardrobe: Holiday Bits and More

I thought I’d share the latest things I’ve bought with you, as I always try to do. I LOVE seeing what other people have bought, it’s a great way to see what’s about in the shops at the moment and who knows, you could fall in love with a piece.

A few of these things are holiday pieces as I can’t see many opportunities to wear them in the UK but they are so cool! I’m going to the Greek Island of Kefalonia for a week on Friday 24th June so I’m sure I’ll be wearing them then. 🙂
