TopFour: Tribal Toes

27 May

The rather sudden weather change has pretty much meant that I have moved from boots straight into sandals – not that I’m complaining, they happen to be my two favourite types of shoe. The best thing about sandals is that they can look intricately beautiful and delicate whilst still being incredibly comfortable. I can, and do, walk around all day in them without so much as a blister; that is, compared to ballet flats which seem intent on destroying every possible spare bit of space on my feet. So here’s to the feel of fresh air between the toes – my top four tribal inspired sandals. Feathers and beads, what could go wrong?

Hippy Chic

5 Jun

We threw a party last night and despite copious cocktails and a 5am bedtime, I woke up this morning only a few hours after going to sleep feeling incredibly bright and spritely and cleaned the flat from top to bottom. It’s now spotless and I find myself sat stretched out on the sofa looking out over a beautiful sunny day whilst everyone is still asleep upstairs . All this hot weather is making me want to break away from my usual style of clean lines and neutral colours to embrace the hippy within with patterns, prints, swishy fabrics, bright colours, bangles and beads.
