I love high heels. My feet don't. So in a battle between head and heart, I often try to seek out heels that I can actually walk in all day. Skyscraper heels have the advantage of making your legs look considerably longer and leaner. However, spend a day in them and you end up with a permanent grimace and feet that throb right through until the next day, rendering you a hobbling mess. Not to mention the threat of the dreaded bunions!

Faced with a whole day standing at a wedding show, I knew I wanted a shoe that was both flattering and practical. Introducing the glorious mid-heel hot pink courts from Dorothy Perkins that only cost £22. Ok, so they're not real suede but in my opinion, that can be a bonus. I think we have probably all sported a pair of suede shoes, only to be unceremoniously destroyed on a rainy day!
The sizes run a but small in this particular style of shoe so for the first time in my life, I bought a size 6. They come in a few eye popping colours and some muted tones - hot pink, green, orange, blue, nude, black, silver and polka dot. I love the way high heels make you walk taller and they instantly make you feel more feminine. I'm just glad I have found a style that affords me the ability to walk normally the next day!
This bird motif jersey t-shirt caught my eye in Warehouse yesterday so naturally I scooted on over the the cash register with it. It's a great smart-casual piece in a delicate shade of blush. But my favourite design feature has to be the fact that the bird has little scattered sparkly bits...I'm so predictable sometimes! The t-shirt has short sleeves and a relaxed fit so it's a perfect partner to skinny jeans a blazer/leather biker jacket. I looked for the t-shirt online but couldn't see it but it was £30 and was on a rail with all the new stock so I'm sure it will appear on their website soon (generally it's the other way round though!).
I feel like such a kid because I get so much pleasure out of his new purchase purely for the fact it features my first initial. This extremely cute and delicate bracelet is from ASOS and it really does pander to my love of fine chain jewellery. Some outfits just call for more toned down accessories. At just £4.50 in the ASOS sale, it was a no-brainer.
