Neeew shoooooes…! Am I the only one who can’t help but think of that old Clarks advert whenever I buy a new pair of shoes?
I find fashion inspiration comes from a myriad of places – fashion magazines, TV shows, Pinterest and of course blogs, but it’s often my nearest and dearest that inspire my sartorial choices. When I spotted these Topshop Mega Cut Out Boots on my friend Hannah when I went to visit her in London a couple of weeks ago, I knew I had to snap up a pair for myself.
Heels are still a relatively new thing for me but I find a chunky block heel much easier to wear, which is lucky since this style of shoe is very popular this season. These boots are part jelly shoe, part Swedish Hasbeens, and I love the mix of black and white. The chunky rubber soles are similar to the New Look boots I purchased at the start of the year would look just as good with socks as they do without.
The rest of this outfit is fairly standard for me – floral trousers, a simple t-shirt and a vintage blouse, which is one of my grandmother’s cast-offs. I’ve worked out that I have enough floral trousers to wear a different pair every day of the week, but this pair is one of my favourites!
How do you feel about the trend for chunky block heels? Yeay or nay?
