Let your shoes do the talking...

It's an age-old formula. Which works.
Dress simply. And then wow everyone with the accessories.
I recently bought these Zara shoes which have transformed my wardrobe. I have a few knee-length skirts I wasn't sure what to do with and felt I was wearing the same flats everyday (and as much as I love the trainer trend, it's a slippery slope and VERY hard to get back into shoes!). I bought these metallic beauties and voila! My style has had a much-needed rejig.

Just team with a sweater and jeans for instant chic. I've shown here how a few simple pair of fab shoes can change your look in an instant:

Before I probably would've put some trainers on for ease. But this looks so much more polished. Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Jumper: Uniqlo mens. Bag: Zara. Jeans: Asos

On my way to a friend's baby shower, who runs a blog - A Little of Everything




Zara silver block heels, £69.99
WARDROBE CLASSIC:

Ray-Ban's style just work for my petite face, and are a classic. These ones have the Brooks Brothers tie-print on the inside! V cool.

The High Street does some great versions, too:

£10, Accessorize

£12, Asos
I love these neon pink shoes, £250, LK Bennett

A great investment for the summer, especially if you have a few weddings to go to!

NEW ADDITION: BOYFRIEND WATCH
Watch, £139, Rotary
This is actually a man's watch from Rotary but I love the chunkiness of it. It even has the date and day of the week!
