Hello everyone! I’m so sorry that I’ve been MIA from the blog for a while. The first couple of weeks of June have been so busy. A friends Hen in Ibiza, home improvements and a ridiculously active almost-one-year-old have made for no time for blogging.
Here its today’s Tuesday ShoesDay. Finally, the weather is playing ball and the sandals are out for work. I first caught sight of these on Beth’s blog in March and went to try them in store. I didn’t buy them initially as with my skin tone pale pink (which they are) doesn’t always suit. Then I found myself thinking about them a lot and the outfits I could wear them with… A sure sign I was going to buy them!
Turns out they were a good buy as I’ve worn them with lots if different outfits since the summer has almost started.
Although I tend to steer clear of an ankle strap as they cut off your legs, these are in a good place, falling just on my ankle bone. I also love the block heel for all-day work comfort.
I’m wearing them with
Black Silk Tee – Gap
Snakeskin tapered trousers – M&S
The last couple of weeks have also seen me have my hair cut (much needed but no fringe this time!) and start the 5:2 way of eating.
Post-Marathon I wanted to drop a few pounds before holiday in July and I must admit, after being sceptical, its working for me. Vicki over at Honest Mum is also seeing success.
Its definitely a change in lifestyle more than a diet and very achievable. I’ve lost just under half the amount of weight I want to so far but more importantly my clothes fit nicely now… Hence digging these trousers out. Most Mum’s will know that their bodies change after having a Wee one and that’s true of mine. Although the figure on the scales isn’t what I’d like to see, the way I feel is good which is the most important thing.
I’ve been doing it for three weeks now and will continue to. I just need to get my fitness/toning routine kick-started into something regular. Time, time and more time! More on the 5:2 to come.
Good shoes today? What do you think? Do you like this summers block heel trend?
