I have enough shoes.......said no woman ever!

It's weekly confession time again. As the title suggests......there has been a lot of incoming footwear this week. First up! Trainers. I have my lovely mate Sue for bringing these to my attention. And crikey....they really are an amazing Golden Goose dupe.....for a fraction of the price. What do you think?

Le Temps des Cerises via La Redoute 20% off with code SPRING

Obviously I am planning many an outfit around them! Kicking off with this one which will no doubt see me in over the weekend.

New Look skirt - reduced to £8! (I have a similar gifted one)

They will also be superb with my new Y.A.S via ASOS dress.....

Warehouse blazer - also made it's way off my wish list into my wardrobe this week!

N.B I have found the trainers to be true to size and they come with metallic silver laces and natural coloured ones too! 

I may well gloss over these.......I am so goddamn late to the white boot party. I have tried loads and tried very hard to convince myself that I don't need to be all over this trend. However there is a plan afoot that I will share with you next week and I've now decided I can't do without them. As I said I've tried loads.....I didn't want to spend loads on them and so the ones I looked at looked quite synthetic. Until I saw these. I can do as they are textured and just the right shape. I just knew when I saw them they were what I'd been looking for. And the best bit......they are down to £10!

Ending with a preloved pair. It's always worth having a scout on eBay for those things you've missed. I've seen stuff on my favourite influencers thats I've been able to pick up for a fraction of the cost.....and get my hands on some pieces where I've missed the boat as they are past season. Thanks to some Gail Rinkoff inspiration (again!) these gorgeous J by Jasper Conran boots have come into my possession. Love at first sight.....leopard print needs no explanation!

Yes, I was out out on a Wednesday night. Thanks to my lovely pal Gail Painter I was invited to a Japanese wine tasting evening at The River Station in Bristol. I go to sample some delicious wines......and of course I never miss an opportunity to dress up a little!

I will be back tomorrow with what's on my radar this week. I will warn you though....it's not a lot. It's been half term here this week and there have not been too many opportunities to shop or surf the net. What I can promise is that it won't be anymore shoes.....I have literally filled my boots! ;0)

winter beach wear

Not a bikini insight! We thought we'd picked the best day of the week weather-wise to head to the coast.......but it was freezing in Dorset today. Hence I'm bundled up in one of my cosiest sweaters and trusty old aviator. On the upside......I have bonafide beachy hair waves going on!

First day of half term under my belt. Keeping to some classics today. Camel coat, denim shirt, black skinny jeans and a splash of leopard print. Easy dressing for a trip to The Mall Cribbs Causeway.
