Wedge Shoes : an edgy twist on the traditional heel!

Wedges made a huge come back last summer and these fabulous shoes are set to do the same this coming season! The great thing about wedges is not only are they super comfy but also suit both daytime chic and night time glam wear. So versatile that Wedges can wear with pretty much everything. I love to style my Wedges with ankle grazing jeans or leggings for a sleek, leg lengthening look.

We all know that nude colour is hot to trot and gives the impression of longer limbs so first up I found these stunning Nude Suedette Platform Wedges by New Look. So amazingly cute with the contrast Suedette platform with the patent upper!

A wardrobe staple has to be the Black Wedge Shoe, great for setting a fashion standard in the office and must have for big nights out. Check out Office’s Wonderland black suede wedge shoes with their fancy little bow and peep toe.

For the more daring wearer, so many delightful brightly coloured Wedge Shoes coming into stock on the high street. Make a statement in these coral beauties from Aldo. These eye-catching Calcagni wedges would be perfect with a hot dress to really stand out!

Show off in these slinky snake print Wedge Boots by Ravel from Love Your Shoes, recently sported by a member of the TOWIE cast. These wedges have bite!

Pretty Ballerina Shoes and Pumps for Spring!

This warmer weather has meant that I can finally forget socks and choose to wear some gorgeous Ballet inspired shoes and pumps instead! With no rain forecast this week, Ballerinas are perfect casual shoes to wear for work and play.

I recently purchased some nude bow ballet pumps from H&M, the colour goes with everything and unbelievably comfy. I’ve worn these pretty ballerina shoes to the office and out day drinking.

If neutral is not your thing, why not choose these Ravel Bow Trim Ballerinas in hot pink to jazz up your outfits.

 Bring out the animal in you with these slinky snake print ballerina shoes by Barratts. Snake print was huge last season and continues to be on trend for this year too.

Wellies : Winter weather essential or fabulous festival fashion!

Rumour has it that snow is on its way this weekend, and the manfriend wants to go for a walk on Saturday.

Now I’m not opposed to taking a stroll and quite like getting some fresh air, but footwear poses a problem. I don’t see the point of buying expensive walking boots being the novice that I am; however I want to keep my feet dry in the forecasted snow.

Last time went for a mooch in the countryside, it wasn’t until rain bucketed it down did realise that there was a massive split in the side of my pair of leopard print wellies! Gutted. Wet socks are just not fun. Those wellies had seen me through few festivals too.

Wellies have seen a revolution in recent years, gone were the days that wellies were just for the older generation on gardening Sundays, or those who are into fishing. A decent pair of Wellies set you apart in the crowds at festivals.

Certain designer brands of wellies have become a status symbol by the fashion conscious. Take the very popular Hunter Wellies, favourite of the royals, celebs and stylish welly wearers. What about Posh Wellies, this brand has taken welly style to the next level with all the buckles, fur and quilted styles. Wedge Welly became famous in Dragons Den, worn by MIC Binky and Cheska. I dabbled in a bit of modelling again, wearing the pink wedge welly for Barratts website!
