current obsession......ballerina pumps!

So, I've been hankering after some ballet flats for sometime as a change from my usual choice of footwear, trainers! Whilst I managed to pick up some fab nude ballet pumps in New Look for a song last week (I featured on my last post here), I've been looking for something a bit different as I'm not doing the *granny* shoe trend and I feel the need for something just a little bit more substantial! I bought some Topshop Ghillies last year, but to be honest as they have a pointed toe I feel they are on the dressy side for my everyday wardrobe so I've been eyeing up a softer, rounder toe shoe. These Aldo ones's are top of my wishlist and they are heavily reduced! I think these will look great with my Uniqlo crop pants, H&M kick flares and Topshop pinstripe pegs, all recent purchases.


Now my lovely blogging friend Fran from The Fashion Lift caused a bit of a frenzy on Instagram the other day when she posted some fab New Look Chanel-esque pumps! Alas....I have trawled but haven't been able to find them......however! What about these beauties! 



Last but by no means least! I love a metallic shoe for summer, I find them such a great neutral to have in your shoe arsenal.....my silver Superga's have already seen a lot of action this season. These Topshop flatties look brilliant, I think they would be amazing with the Uniqlo chiffon skirt I blogged about here. These have a fab quirky squared off toe that give them a bit of edge for me! Again these will go with all of the purchases I have made lately.



So 3 pairs of shoes added to my wish list, I could warrant each and everyone of them.......I'd best get eBaying! ;0) 

Is there a spring/summer shoe you are hankering after at the moment? Which of my picks would you choose.....or do I need all 3?! ;0)

I may have clicked the button on all 3 of these shoes....entirely in the name of research obviously! I shall keep you posted! ;0)

I'm not sure where the Easter holiday has gone....it went in the blink of an eye it would seem! However I am looking forward to getting back into a routine this week!

I'll be back in a few days....wishing everyone a good start to the week!

    1. The Next ones are such a fab homage aren't they Sue! I've got something similar from New Look that I've had for years but they are starting to look a bit tired so I'm looking forward to getting my hands on these! That'll be my mission today....I shall be getting busy listing stuff! xx

    1. Yep....those little nude ballet pumps really did fire up my addiction for this type of shoes Sue! It's been quite nice to have a wee break from the trainers! ;0) xx

  5. It's so funny I just don't know if I can do ballet flats again - I love the heeled version but when it comes to flats I love a pointed toe! I used to have a few Tory Burch Revas and sold them all so I might stick with the block heeled version this year! xx

  6. I love all of those but I can't wear anything that flat, which is so irritating! Nor am I that pushed on the 'granny' chic shoes that are all the rage. Will have to keep searching.
