Just a quick post to say I am thrilled about the weather over here in Glasgow. How amazing is this city in the summer? I'm thoroughly enjoying wearing little crochet dresses ew bare legs, not to mention sunglasses!

I hope you're all enjoying a fair share of sunshine!

So, I managed to pull together a post featuring some flat shoes! One of my lovely readers suggested on the blog's Facebook page that I do more outfits with flat shoes - and since I'm still recovering from my career threatening injury (ok, so that's possibly overly-dramatic) this suits be perfectly. They are comfy  and classic, and go with anything from girl-y skirts to ripped boyfriend jeans.... Though I have to admit that teamed with a knee-length skirt I'm not entirely happy how this ensemble makes my 5"3 frame look. But that's entirely another problem!

N.B if you're thinking of splurging on a pair of Ferragamos I'd suggest you at least try them on, or order half size up - I managed to judge my size perfectly but my 'true size' would've certainly caused some mighty blisters. For a slightly cheaper yet luxurious pair of flats consider a classic pair of Repettos.

PRADA

*This is a part of my 'big shoe purchases' posts, see #1, #2, #3, #4, #5.

It's really hard to write a post while you drool over some shoes you've lusted after forever while thinking of all the different outfits that they'd go with. Anyone else have this problem? No? It's just me then.

Part of the reason why I've postponed this post is because I'd like to show you how they look on and how they compare comfort wise, but as my foot is still in slow process of recovery (soft tissue damage, ironically not caused by wearing heels) I've decided to bite the bullet and show you some windowsill snaps instead.

So here they are, my two favourite shoe purchases this year. As with all Prada/Miu Miu shoes I don't have a scooby what these particular styles are called so if you do, please leave a comment below! It makes life *much* easier to track them down if they have a name, a-la 'Anouk', 'Pigalle' or 'Tribute', but Prada (and Zanotti and a few others for that matter), go for 'Spring 2013 sandal' and expect us to do the rest... I digress, back to the point:

The story: It was my annual trip to Bicester Village. The rain was really chucking it down, which was a bummer as I had especially reserved my golden non-waterproof Jimmy Choo flats to wear on the day. We started the day by taking a train from Paddington to Oxford, and then continuing our journey by bus (which, by the way is much, much cheaper than the Bicester bus service from Victoria). I had been saving for months, however I was on a mission to not overspend (which by the way is *very* easily done in a place like Bicester). We took shelter in the Jimmy Choo outlet store, which didn't have the offering I was quite expecting - no insane bargains like last year for me. From there, we moved onto Mulberry (again, nothing I could have afforded), Tag Heuer (nothing my other-half could have afforded, much as he was almost daft enough to consider it), Saint Laurent which had a number of stunning and affordable heels going, but none in my size. Prada had moved since our last visit (see my previous purchases here) which made it our final stop. Owing to my tight budget, I quickly hunted down their 'last items' section and with a little help by my boyfriend, grabbed everything wallet-friendly in my size. Our day, which had been garnished with thundery rain, a lot of window shopping and some disappointments ended with a shopaholics ultimate dream - to be able to walk out of Prada with two huge and ornate paperbags, both which, an hour later, dissolved in the rain. While this was a short term joy I consider it a long term victory as these beautiful shoes will, for sure, serve me for years in future. Now for my foot to hurry up and get better!

What I wore...



Top old cashmere knit / Jeans Gina Tricot / Shoes Kurt Geiger / Jewellery random & Versace for H&M

...to a pub around the corner. This was couple months ago, hence the heels. Despite being pretty boring mix of stuff I found from my wardrobe, it might well be one of my favourite ensembles in a long time. Casual outfits for the win (if you count 5 inch heels as 'casual')...

Modern Milkmaid

Coat Zara / Top Lacoste / Skirt Calvin Klein Collection / Belt Fossil / Boots Kurt Geiger London

Here's a surprise... Yet another braided updo! I blame Kayley Melissa and her bloomin' easy tutorials. This milkmaid-ish braid-bun effort is one of my favourites, the key I find is to keep everything nice and loose so the end result is a bit more 'boho chic' and less Poland's entry for Eurovision Song Contest...

I have an existing new high heel -related post coming up... Stay tuned!
