5 Inches. . .

Shoes. My guilty pleasure. I have an insanely large collection and I’m proud to add another incredible pair to the family. I had been eyeing up these beauties for while and thankfully they were reduced in the Boxing Day sales. Finnish fashion blogger, Sandra Hagelstam collaborated with River Island in 2014 to outstanding success. I have featured the breathtaking Sandra and her blog, 5 Inch And Up before as part of my ‘Inspirational Blogger’ series. I found it tricky trying to pick just one pair as her collection is devine. Each style is so chic and sophisticated and I’m madly in love.

I chose the grey snakeskin ankle boots with a sock – look print panel. I wanted to purchase a pair that are unique and a style that I do not already have. I waited each day for them to arrive, to say I was excited was an understatement!

The chic snakeskin print makes them pop beautifully and I’m excited to give them their first outing. Having followed Sandra and her blog for a few years, I love how she has stayed true to her own personal style and it shows through her collection.

I’m not usually one for wearing stiletto heels, my feet are not the easiest when it comes to breaking shoes in. However, I wanted to try a new look and I thought that these beauties would be perfect. When I first tried them on, I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable they were. Now don’t get me wrong, I will have to wear them around the house for a few days first. I think I’ll wear them as a dinner and cocktail shoe. As much as I would love to, there is no way I could dance the night away in them.

I haven’t had the chance to snap a shot of me wearing them, but I promise I’ll get that sorted in the coming weeks.

Happy Friday, rascals. I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Blue Suede Shoes

Elvis Presley eat your heart out. Taking a leaf from the king himself, this season I’ll be rocking it out in my new blue suede shoes from none other than, Marks and Spencer.

Royal blue isn’t usually a colour I would go for, but, I wanted to branch out a little with my footwear so I decided to treat myself to these fabulous ankle boots.

image

I love the buckle detailing along the breast of the boot, they give it a real rock ‘n’ roll feel. They would look perfect worn with a pair of leather trousers, a skirt and even a short mini dress.

I just need to work out what I’m going to style them with! ūüėČ

OOTD – Basement Jaxx

Another night, another concert. This time I’m going to Belsonic to see the fantastic Basement Jaxx.

As there is no report of rain tonight, I’ve decided to get my pins out for the occasion. I’m wearing my grey and leather panel jumper with my cream lace shorts and black studded ankle boots.

For my accessories, I kept things simple with a statement necklace and ring to give it a funky feel.

And, just in case it decides to get chilly. I’m wearing my new coral scarf and I’ve paired it with my lip colour.

Hope you’re all having a great weekend.
