Moccasins by Minnetonka
I think everyone loves a bit of downtime. Nothing to do but chill out, relax, maybe read a book or look through a magazine, or watch a film or Netflix (current obsession: Gossip Girl). One of my favourite things to do, particularly on a Sunday, is just hang out at home in cosy clothes, nowhere to be, nothing to do, just having a lazy day.
I recently got these amazing moccasins from Minnetonka and I am beyond obsessed with them (almost as obsessed as I am with GG.) They are incredibly soft suede, mega comfortable and they are great for wearing at this time of year; inside at least, they make a much sturdier alternative to slippers and I can answer the door or zip outside in them if I need to. They are my new favourite flat shoes, and that's no mean feat considering my flat shoe collection far outnumbers my heels.
I am a half size but I chose a size 3 in these and they fit perfectly. I was a little worried because I've heard that Minnetonkas can come up quite narrow, so even though I do have narrow feet I did think they might be a little tight, but these fit like a glove and the suede is bound to stretch a little anyway, given the softness, so if you are between sizes I would consider sizing down. I love the intricate embroidery on the toes, which reminds me of Nicole Ritchie's House of Harlow collection but, of course, at a fraction of the price.
Minnetonka is a brand so loved by celebs and it is a definite festival staple, Kate, Alexa, Vanessa et al always have a pair to hand for the summertime but I don't think they should be limited to the summer months just because of their looks; sure, suede is a fabric not suited to rain but for the drier, crisp spring days when it's warm enough for bare ankles but not for sandals, these will definitely be my go-to.
