Shoes to see you into Summer

Now the weather has finally picked up a bit, it’s time to move my usual trainers and brogues to the back of the wardrobe to make room for pretty sandals and more open shoes.

The fact that I’m pregnant has added to the need for comfier shoes so getting to shop for new shoes has been a lovely treat for my feet. I have picked 3 very different styles of shoes from Simply Be that I’ve chosen as my perfect shoes to transition into the nicer weather.

1. Sole Diva Tassel Loafers – £25

These are perfect for the office or work and what makes them even better is the fact they are wide fit. I chose black because it’s a colour that will go with most outfits especially with office wear.

2. Sole Diva Pom Pom Sandals – £28.00

These are my absolute favourite sandals I think I’ve ever owned. They look incredible on and would be great paired with a white summer dress. Hubby is not a fan of them but who cares – I love them!

3. Sole Diva ruffle Ballerina shoes – £18.00

Again I chose this pair because they work with jeans or office wear and once again they are wide fit – perfect for what could be some very swollen tootsies going forward.

I am always spoilt for choice when choosing items from Simply Be and after seeing advertising on the television so much, it made me more aware of some of the brands they sell on their site. If you are on the lookout for some new sandals/shoes or even wedges for summer then check them out.

Dressing like a gent

Your eyes have not deceived you upon reading the title of this post. I am writing a men’s fashion post from the eyes of a mid-twenties lady and I’m specifically writing it for the older chaps out there.

Men are either great at dressing themselves or tend to get their wife/partner/gf/friend to help them out when it comes to picking clothes and not looking like a clown. On many occasion I’ve overhead couples or spoken to couples in my previous job who’ve said they let their wives pick their clothes because frankly; they HATE trudging round the shops. Let’s face it, us ladies can wander the shops and end up in the same shop on more than one occasion and frankly it’s a super power.

I was contacted by to create a style related post for the older gentleman and I’m pretty excited about writing this one and sharing some of my favourite picks from the site.

Let’s start with tailoring and first on my list is this Herringbone Weave Tailored Jacket:

The perfect Winter footwear

 This isn’t an outdoor footwear post talking about the perfect boot I’m afraid. That’s right, I’m talking about super comfy, cosy slippers for pottering around the house.

Now I’m getting older, I remember my mum always telling me to wear slippers round the house to stop complaining about cold feet. Finally I’ve realised her advice was good and that’s when Lazy Dogz came into my life.

Lazy Dogz are slipper specialists who have been in business since 2001. They pride themselves on producing luxurious footwear that looks and feels amazing.

I was sent this beautiful pair of Sandy Moccasin slippers, which fit like a glove and are dreamy in how they feel when you wear them.

On closer inspection it’s clear to see they think of the detail as the stitching was exact, the lovely fluffy lining inside is just the right amount of warmth and the pretty gold bow adds that extra something to the top.

They are also really practical on the sole as they have rubber parts giving you good grip on a slippy surface like tiles/laminate which is ideal in our house.

I have owned many a pair of slippers over the years but this may be my comfiest pair yet! They retail at £35 (*which was correct at the time of writing this*) and for every pair of Lazy Dogz slippers sold before Christmas Eve 2016, they will donate £1 to the Manchester Dogs Home. (Another reason I absolutely love this company)

So if you are looking for a new pair of slippers or you don’t get quite the right pair for Christmas, then check this fab company out.
