What my feet are lusting after...

I've got the shoehorn - and I don't mean the kind you use to help get shoes on to your feet!!! ;-)  No, I'm lusting after footwear.  Quite a selection too I might add...

It seems to me that the ankle boot and wedge heel are still very big this year and I have neither in my wardrobe!  These are the shoes I'm currently craving:

The Wedge Trainer:


These were a key trend this year and are set to stay around for a while yet.  Like many, I wasn't sure at first, but having seen a few people wearing them they have sneaked into my subconscious and I find myself wanting a pair.  This pair are rather gorgeous and I would LOVE it if they'd walk themselves to me.  I love the idea of something that looks quite lo-key, good for the weekend, yet gives you a little height.  Something for a shortie like me (at 5'1) is a bonus!

This pair are made by ASH and are currently available for £94.99 from cloggs.co.uk.

The Wedge Ankle Boot:


Continuing on a similar theme, the ankle boot combined with a wedge heel continues to be popular.  And yet... I don't own a pair!! I've found many I love, but these tick all my boxes. First of all, they are really different.  Most ankle boots are black or tan.  These are purple velveteen!!! Don't you love that word?  They are just asking to be stroked, aren't they!  I think these could happily be worn in the day.. As a Mummy I love having a nice pair of shoes or boots on, it always lifts my mood a little and makes me feel in control.  However, I know these would be fantastic for evenings out as well.  Fab for cold evenings as well!! A heel but nice warm feet.  Lovely!

This pair are made by Rocket Dog (a favourite brand of mine) and are availble for £34.99 (bargain!) from Cloggs.co.uk.

The Converse Boot:


I have LOVED Converse for a long time now.  I have two pairs I adore, a pair of high top Chuck Naylors and a gorgeous orange pair of Ox Slims.  I love and wear them both a lot.  However, I spotted this pair recently, and what can I say?  It was love at first sight!! There's not much to say about Converse really.. they are a fantastic every day shoe.  A little more trendy than the average trainer, comfy for the walk to school.  I love them!!

Converse are available in many places but I discovered these ones on cloggs.co.uk and they are currently £62.99.

The DM Boot:


Doctor Martens have been around for ages now (since the early '70s I think?) and in the '90s they were mega trendy with those who were into the grunge look.. and most of us were!  Baggy checked men's shirts, leggings and DM boots.  That's what I used to knock around in.  I think there are quite a few hardcore DM fans out there who wear them all the time, but fashion and style wise, it all went a bit quite on the "traditional" DM boot side of things (they do have quite an extensive range of other styles these days).  However, over the last year or so I think they've been making a bit of a come back and I'm ready for a pair in my boot collection again.  I've always fancied having a slightly taller pair and that's where these come in.  Plus, they are purple.  Something a bit different to black but still versatile enough to work with lots of other colours.  I think they'd look fantastic with skinny jeans or a mini skirt.  You know you're getting your money's worth with DMs as well.  My old pair were faithful for a long time!

These are available for £109.99 from cloggs.co.uk.

So.. there you go!! These are the the shoes I'm lusting after for my collection this year. I'm not sure how many of them I'll actually be lucky enough to own by the time the year is out, but one can hop!

  2. I almost bought a pair of purple Docs shoes when I was in college... but I just didn't like the way they looked on my feet. They definitely go into the category "cool, but not a good look for me".

    1. Oh, that's a shame they didn't look right on you. Not all shoes will suit everyone, it has to be said! I'm not sure if Docs still suit me to be honest, but I hope they do! x

  3. Here are several things to notice if you choose the karen millen outlet dresses: Attempt to pick skirts that fall just under the knee, have pleats and always be flouncy, while tops need to get loose silks or sweatshirts with horizontal stripes.
