New shoes?

It's been so warm today which has been brilliant but the only downside is catching the bus in this heat and sitting next to sweaty people. Nice. After work, I came home and got changed into the following before I headed out again for a meal with my old work colleagues! The Topshop vest is great for keeping cool and I will never get bored of that lace cropped top. I've been wearing it a lot lately because it's great to add a more interesting element to loose fitting Summer dresses!

This is the dress that Hailey bought in Public Beware (see this post) It's lovely and drapey and she had it in mind for Spain when she heads over there for the Benicassim festival. She will be seeing so many awesome bands but also be able to chill out at the beach too!

The shoes in my photo were bought today from the Topshop Sale. Which are super comfy! Sometimes you can find some really great things in the sale...I usually hate Topshop with a passion when it's sale time but they haven't officially launched sale yet and it's only a few bits and pieces. It's a huuuuge mess when it's sale time. I stay away because it's too scary and I don't like rooting around the floor for thing's I didn't want first time round when they were full price!
I also bought this brogue style pimsolls (or plimsolls? Which one is right? They both seem to describe the same kind of shoe!) They were a bargain at only £8. I'm not sure whether to keep them....what do you guys think?

  4. The shoes look so summery! I hope they keep you cool. I do love your sis's dress..I've been looking for something like that. You have an adorable outfit too!

    Thanks so much for the note. Well, I am an Andrew Moss fan from Hollyoaks. Although, I don't like some of the storylines they put rhys in. He's such a cad sometimes ..and maybe just maybe he's changing. Natalie's sasha is also fav..although, I haven't liked what they've done to her character either.

    Lov'n the style. Keep it up!

  17. I vote to keep the plimsolls, they're really cute and its always handy to have a comfy pair of shoes around. I really like the other shoes too, and I love Hailey's new dress. Does it have beads on the shoulders? :)

  23. ooo keep the cute shoes! i'll bet you will get lots of wear out of them. or do what i do, keep new things in the bag with the receipt rather than unpacking them and if you don't try to wear them for a week them just return them!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I haven't been on the internet in ages and I have enjoyed having a catch up with your blog! Definately keep the shoes, and topshop should definately sort their sales out - it's just pure carnage! :) x

  26. Oh, those last pair of shoes are yummy!

    I made a limeade cake with cream cheese icing. Its was so good. Next time I'm going to make them as cupcakes. I just added a small frozen can of concentrated limeade with about 1/2 cup water to a regular cake mix and the rest of their directions.
