Yull Beaulieu shop here
Yull is a brand that I've been working with since the very early days of my blog, and as such I always have a strong interest in what their founder, Sarah, is up to. I remember when I first heard of the brand and Sarah took the time to get in touch and tell me about her passion for shoes and her excitement that she had been able to design her own range and launch her own brand. I remember being absolutely thrilled that Sarah wanted me to write about her products because it showed she liked my blog and felt confident that I would be able to tell all my readers about her wonderful shoes. I love the fact that she is constantly developing and changing, Sarah is very reactive and business minded but also never strays far from her ethos of 'Style over Fashion.' Yull is a brand that I know will strengthen and develop for years to come, all down to her hard work, commitment, passion and drive.
Of the products that Sarah has launched with Yull over the past couple of years, quite a few have been mentioned on the blog. There's been the Shelter Shoe (some of the proceeds going to the homeless charity Shelter) the Chelsea ankle boot, the Cambridge flat, the Stratford (inspired by the London 2012 Olympic Games) and now, probably my all time favourite product that she's created, the Beaulieu. Check them out above: swoon!
First off, I'm a sucker for any sort of toecap, and this stunning almond toed court in fine leather is such a classic shape for everyday. This is the sort of shoe that you could wear aged 22, with a ripped skinny jean, or 62 with a tailored trouser (or a ripped skinny jean ha!) and neither would look outlandish or stuffy. They truly encompass such a broad range and would suit any style or work with any look. Despite the muted colour palette they are anything but boring; I think they are chic and elegant and have more than a touch of the Coco Chanel's about them, especially the beige and black pair!
Something I also love about this pair, which is something Sarah hasn't done before, is the block heel. Making a move from a slim stiletto to a bolder block instantly updates the silhouette of the shoe and makes it feel very current. Basically I love, love, love them!
The Beaulieu costs £75 and you can shop them and a whole host of other pretties on the Yull website here.
