Never has something done what it says on the tin quite as much as this blog post, but I got some new shoes and I wanted to tell you all about them. I ordered them off Matches Fashion last week in a bit of an impulsive moment and I love them so much. The perfect Spring shoe to wear with jeans now, and mini dresses and skirts come the sunshine. One thing, they at NOT comfortable at first. After a day of nothing short of torture I have broken them in but the slingback is pretty much determined in sawing off your foot on the first day out. Agony I tell you. I am not adverse to a little bit of suffering for style here and there, and thankfully this was a short spell of suffering as these have been perfectly comfortable ever since. I love the low block heel, and how feminine these feel, which is always fun to pair with more masculine outfits.
I am having a bit of a moment for all black outfits at the moment which has come from no where but I am fully embracing it. I used to wear so much black a few years ago and always felt the most chic in an all black outfit, and still just as chic when I wear all black now. And it really does perfectly show off my new shoes. The first outfit were taken on the day of shoe pain and if you look closely you can almost feel my thinking 'help me' in every photo.
Day two of shoe wearing was little more bearable (although I do look a bit murderous in the above photo). This time the once-painful-but-now-comfortable-ish-shoes were work with THE Weekday jeans of the moment. As I have said long jeans are a thing for me at the moment so when welcoming in the new shoes it was essential they worked with them. Thankfully the passed the test (with flying colours, might I add), and it has been a wonderful match. Sort of pleasantly awkward, and how many time must I say that I love an element of awkwardness in my outfits. I actually LOVED how this looked without the jacket because it was so so minimal, but alas the 'spring' weather would not allow such behaviour. Can hardly complain about the jacket though because who remembers this Celine number from last year?? I honestly don't wear it enough and forget how amazing it is every single time I put it on. Please all remind me to wear it more often.
