Shoe Shopping!

Friday, 22 January 2016

Shoes, like makeup, are something that I buy a lot of and in all honesty, tend to hoard. The bottom of my wardrobe is piled high with boxes of shoes that I love or can't bear to part with, and now there are two new members to my collection after I went a bit over the top with shoe shopping on the weekend...


Both pairs are from Dorothy Perkins, a place that I feel does pretty good quality shoes for a pretty good price-both of these were also only £16 (originally £23 but with 30% off each), which is incredibly cheap considering I am bound to wear them on countless occasions.

The first pairs are the gorgeous tan lace-ups above...

I had been envying these sorts of shoes on other people's blogs and instagrams for ages, and knew with Spring approaching that I had to get my hands on a pair too! They do them in both tan and black, but as I own a lot of black shows I opted for this lovely brown, suede pair I think they will be more suitable for the Spring and Summer months. They are pretty comfy, and although I won't wear them to walk miles and miles in, in my head I have already planned many an outfit to pair them with (just think boyfriend jeans and cute stripy tops and floral blouses!)


The second pair I got are the cute black loafers above (again £16). These are more the sort of shoes I would wear now with tights and a skirt of with black jeans, but I also think I would be able to make them work in the spring by using them to dress up some more casual outfits. 

I really like how they are part patent and part suede, because it makes them look that little bit more dress. Plus, the gold on the tassels takes away the school shoe vibes they might otherwise attract.

Again, they probably aren't going to be the comfiest shoes in the entire world, but I will give a good go at wearing them in. They also sell these in blue and brown I think if you don't want to opt for the black as I did!

Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed this more fashion orientated post; you can find both pairs of shoes on the Dorothy Perkins website.

  12. I love these style of shoes, especially lace-up flats. I have a pair in black but, a bit like you, I never want to wear them if I know I'm going to have to do a lot of walking as they're not the most practical thing!
