Legs Eleven

Hi Folks! It’s been a while huh?

With being away in the US for work for almost two weeks and coming home to various house-move dramas, the blog has taken a little bit of a back seat I’m afraid.

Those of you that follow me on Twitter and Instagram though shouldn’t be disappointed though as I do find it much easier to quickly use these and often keep them updated.

Anyway, I thought I’d share a few of the trousers I’ve been wearing recently. It’s been better weather so I can go barefoot and free-ankled (I hate nothing more than wearing tights under trousers, or socks with shoes) and since doing the #Whole30, they all fit again!

I do love a pair of statement trousers and I’m looking forward to the summer when I get can more of them out with vests and silk tops.

I’ve also recently invested in some new jeans as I’ve found most of mine are now ill-fitting. The Gap Always Skinny are fantastic. Great fit, rise and wash. I may need to get them in the Dark Indigo too.

Zara Navy Blue Soft Leather Moccasin

Moccasin. Isn’t that a lovely word? It isn’t one is personally use to describe these Navy flats however, illustrated by the fact it took me ages to find a stock photo of them on google as I was searching for loafer/ flat/ slipper.

Nevertheless these have been a good edition to my wardrobe over the last few months and I can see them being even more useful as we move into spring and the bare feet can come out.

I know suede isn’t the most practice of shoe fabrics, especially in the winter, but for today, where I’ll be inside most of the time, they work well with my navy & black ensemble.

Today I’m wearing:
Navy sweater – Uniqlo Men’s
Navy & Black lace skirt (one of my sale buys)
Art Deco style necklace – Lulu Frost for Whistles

It’s date night tonight and Hubbie and I are off to Sake No Hana on a Toptable deal, but not before a drink at the top of his office building (taking advantage before it’s turned into flats!). Another restaurant ticked off the London must eat at list. I do love a deal!

Enjoy your Tuesdays all! 🙂

Making a Statement

20140203-215103.jpg

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the statement necklace. Whether its to dress up a plain outfit, or to compliment something I’m wearing colour-wise, I have a selection that suit any occasion.

Mostly, they are from Zara. They have really upped their game in the past few seasons and last Christmas I was saved on a couple of occasions from wearing dull evening dresses (read: plain black) by wearing a jewelled creation fit for the Tower of London!

I have all the necklaces in the image above and some can be seen in situ on the photos below.

Having said that, I don’t wear them all the time, preferring to alternate them with my go-to necklace, my beloved Tiffany Starfish.

BUT, something exciting is soon to be starting where not only will I get to wear some gorgeous new pieces, but you could too! More on that soon enough 🙂

Are you a fan of statement jewellery?

Zara Black Suede Ankle Boots with Studded Toes

Cheating today as I know its Wednesday but I’ve been ill so that’s my excuse.

I’ve dug out my studded ankle boots for a ‘do I have today at The Shard. Feels odd going to work so dressed up. I love that these boots look good with a dress or trousers.

Today I’m wearing:
Lace Rebecca Dress – Whistles
90 Denier tights – Autograph
Black ankle boots – Zara

Sorry its fast, but have to dash!

Limited Collection Patent Courts

A quick one today. I think everyone must have these bargain shoes from M&S. Mine cost £19.50 but they are now £25 for some reason. Comfortable, a good height, admittedly not leather but therefore durable, they are a good work staple. I’ve worn them today with my take on a “bumble bee” outfit to help celebrate Calum’s nursery – Busy Bees – 30th birthday. There’s a party this afternoon and they are trying to break a world record for the number of fancy dress bumble bees.

I’m wearing:

Yellow Mohair jumper – Zara
Black Sequin skirt – Darling Clothes
50 Denier Velvet tights – Wolford
Bee Necklace – Alex Monroe

The things us Mum’s have to do 🙂 Work appropriate whilst in keeping with a theme I think!

Zara Leopard Print Tassel Loafers

I love these shoes. They remind me of the shoes I used to wear for school. A pair of Black Patent Mock Croc loafers with a thin sole. It was all about the Kickers loafers when I was at school, but I wanted something different and my Next pair lasted me all sixth form.

I bought these in the sale this year for a knockdown £12.99. Amazing given I’m a size 7 and there are never 7’s left!

What I like most about these is that you can wear with dresses or trousers and look smart. The reason I’m wearing today is I’m at World Travel Market, our annual Travel Industry show, and I’m speaking!

I’m wearing them with:
Black & White dress – H&M
100 Denier Velvet-Luxe Tights – M&S

Do you have shoes that remind you of your childhood?

Zara Silver Jewelled Slider Flat Sandals

I had my eye on these sandals since I saw them on Alex’s blog. A nice alternative to Glads, but a little too much for a fashion whim just for the summer. However, the Sales came round and there they were, reduced by £17.

However, the buckle on the left shoe was broken, so I ended up getting them for under £10. A bargain which was then fixed for a small sum in the local cobblers.

I like that they are comfortable (the wide strap is supportive) and also smart enough to dress up an outfit. They were one of the “smart” flat pairs I took on holiday this summer that I wore both day and night (small luggage allowance, more on that!).

Today I’m wearing them with:

Black Jersey Biker – Whistles
Floral dress – Monsoon

I’ve had a day of showing Travel Agents around one of our ships in Dover, so needed to be smart and comfortable. It was a gorgeous day in Kent today… The white cliffs were stunning!

Would you wear flats like this for a work event?
