I feel like I've only just written an Instagram post, but it's already Tuesday and so time for this week's round up. I really must try and get back into the habit of posting them on a Monday again!
Once again Instagram has become Shoeagram this week as over half of the images I've posted have been of the footwear variety. Two were the subjects of blog posts; yesterdays Ugg related post and prior to that a little peek at the Orla Kiely x Clarks collaboration. I also showcased what are sure to become a firm favourite pair, this patent penny loafer which I can see I will wear a lot through the summer. I'll be honest, it's too cold to wear them with bare feet at the moment-the minute my mum had finished taking the outfit photo's for me, the wooly socks went right back on!
I picked up a pair of mary jane style heels in the Topshop sale for a tenner, because they reminded me a lot of the Zara cream ones I wore almost constantly last summer and I liked the touch of metallic on the heel and strap. Of course the front part is navy, so that's not too far a step from my comfort zone, but the coloured back does add a bit more of an edge. I've also been on the hunt for a pair of patent, flat, riding style boots, and the charity shop came up trumps with these for £7. Lovely.
I'm really trying to not buy so much at the minute but some sales are just too good to pass up. I added both French Connection and Whistles numbers to my dress collection, both for less of the cost of one at full price. They are both so pretty and different, especially the Whistles one which is in a sort of camo print, which I never thought I'd go for but I can see it looking lovely with a biker jacket and my cream Zara heels come bare-leg weather.
My All Creatures Great and Small obsession continues as I've got my hands on the autobiography of Alf Wight, the real 'James Herriot' and I have been enjoying getting into this, it's so interesting and fun to read.
