I Got My New Shoes On

Peter Pan Tunic, Topshop
Leggings, Primark,
Geek Specs Necklace, Temporary Secretary

You'd never guess this was only about 5pm.... Darkness has descended and I feel well and truly into Autumn wearing this tunic. It's a testament to how much I've changed since I bought this tunic too, as I would never has dreamt of wearing it with leggings as opposed to jeans or shorts earlier this year.

But most importantly, as you might have guessed from the post title... I have some new SHOES... *ahem*. A recent visit to Asda yielded some real gems in the shoe department. I was desperately in need of a new pair of tan shoes and when I spotted these for £10, I decided it would be as good a time as any to give brogues a go.

So far, so good. We seem to be hitting it off. I'm looking forward to wearing them with jeans (in particular my New Favourite Jeans) and dresses too. I have also given them a good spray with some waterproof spray today, as the rain seems to have made it's presence further known across the area and I'm hoping these will be a better replacement to my very NON-waterproof tan flats that went in the bin this weekend.

So what do you reckon? Too late jumping on this bandwagon? Are you a lover or a hater of brogues? And if you love them, are you more a fan of proper traditional ones or mad keen on these highstreet versions?

PSSSST I have some pretty heeled brogues for SALE at the moment...

It is nice to go back on old posts and see how a person's style has changed. The tunic really suits you, Chlo, really love that it suits the season too. I think i'm still in S/S11 mode. x

I do love a good brogue. My River Island tan and canvas pair are on their way out and I'm hunting for a new pair but I'm really fussy about faux leather (it so often looks tacky) and proper leather ones are a bit pricey.

Kate Kanzier sells lovely pairs though. So many different colours to choose from...
