WIWT - New Shoes

So back to reality & the start of the karate run today, don't you just miss school holidays?!!!  Anyway it's got us up & out early, which isn't a bad thing as we've got a few errands to run as well as various jobs to complete before we enjoy a sneaky lunch a la deux.

My new shoes from Office arrived yesterday & I simply had to wear them today!  Very similar to the ones lots of bloggers have been raving about from New Look, however these babies are 100% leather.  I was extremely tempted by the New Look ones because of their price but I just knew that if my feet weren't comfortable no matter how gorgeous they were they'd end up sitting in the wardrobe looking pretty so I decided to pay a little bit more for these babies & I don't regret it.

Planning on a cosy night in with a celebratory dinner & a film (son's choice) as on Thursday we finally received the results for his first two GCSE's.  To say I could burst with pride that all his hard work has paid off is something of an understatement!

Have a fab Saturday.

    1. Thanks Kareema, I've made that mistake in the past with shoes so am trying to make sure I don't do it again! Some shoes you can get away with but seeing as I have wide feet & this are particularly pointed with lots of straps/lacing I just thought it wise.

    1. Aww thanks Imogen. I love wearing flats but sometimes with skirts/dresses I feel they can look a bit frumpy so am hoping these shoes will do the trick, as I'm going to try & wear skirts/dresses a little more this winter.

    1. Thanks Michelle, I haven't seen the New Look ones in real life but I think the only main difference is mine don't have a gold heel, which to be honest is something I can live without especially if they're more comfortable so I actually wear them!!

  5. Wow, those shoes are amazing, how's the comfort factor doing? I know what you mean about GCSEs, I could've cried when my daughter got her results in July! So proud :) x

    1. It's so lovely to see their hard work being rewarded isn't it Sarah. We've got the main set of GCSEs to go through this summer but at least he's got a good start & knows what to expect!
      Have to admit the shoes were really comfy, the suede is super soft & having worn them all day I only had a very small amount of rubbing on my one toe & I have wide feet. I'd certainly recommend ;-)

  6. Looking good Jane! I have the New Look shoes and had to size down due to out of stock. I was tempted by the office ones but wanted the gold heel x

    1. Thanks Abbi. That's great to hear the New Look ones are really comfy too, I'd just made the presumption they wouldn't be as they were such an amazing price!
