Ash Birdy Wedge Trainer in Camel
Today’s Tuesday Shoes-Day choice are my Ash Birdy Wedge Trainers in Camel.
I bought these last Autumn from Coggles in the Sale. I remember them being hugely reduced which was the tipping point for me buying them. I don’t often shop from Coggles but it’s one of those online stores that I go to every so often for something different. It reminds me of one of the shops we have in Reigate, stocking items out of the norm, which I love.
I did dally a bit over the purchase though as Wedge trainers have always been a bit of a sticking point with me. Some of the styles out there are WAY to street for me to even attempt to pull off, but the combination of the lovely camel-coloured leather, and their more “boot” like appearance, spurred me to give them a try.
They have become a wardrobe staple, especially since becoming a Mummy. The added bit of height they give means I can still feel a little bit glam even though I’m dressing down most of the time. They work as well with Skinny trousers as they do with Bootcut jeans. In fact, I love them so much, I’m really tempted by these Ash beauties, which I know Kat from over at DoesMyBumLook40 loves too. I will have to wait though… they are WAY out of my price range. Maybe I’ll pick up another bargain come the Sales. One lives in hope.
Sadly, the Birdy is no longer available as far as I can tell, but the replacement is the Bowie Wedge, at an eye-watering £199 from ASOS. I’m struggling with the difference, other than the cost, but I am really glad I managed to get mine last year.
Today I have (tried, but with a three month old it’s hard) to style them with:
- Camouflage Skinny Trousers with Zips, Green – Zara
- Nude Oversized T-Shirt (actually Maternity but works well for hurried days like today) – ASOS
Apologies too about the hair. The misty morning, which turned into an all-day ‘Hound of the Baskervilles’ type fog in Reigate, played havoc, so a Pony was the only way to go.
Does anyone else have these trainers and love them as much as me? How do you style them?
