It took me 9 long months to recover from my toe/foot injury, but I'm (fingers crossed) over it now! To celebrate, here are some shoes I collected over the summer months. Love them all dearly.

Two blog posts in one month? I'm on fire!

Right, this time I shall refrain from apologising and instead, just tell you how it is. I've been busy. And when I haven't been busy, I've been lazy. I've also been doing other exciting stuff, such as attending Glasgow's Commonwealth Games, hanging out with my beautiful friends and stuffing my face with curry. So sorry, but I'm not sorry. I sometimes prioritise Prawn Poori and Peshwari naan over this blog... and who wouldn't?

Now that's off my chest, I'll reveal more positive news - I have been shopping. A lot. And now I have a pile of new things to feature in this blog! Starting from this outfit - everything is new apart from the shoes and the scarf. Although I might have mentioned that I've worn these shoes a lot lately, this isn't to say there hasn't been new shoe purchases (*cough* Pucci *cough* YSL *cough* Casadei) too, and, on the plus side, I've now spent so much money that I'll be on the supernoodles for the next month, so there's an outside chance that you'll see another blog post or three.

Top Marni / Jeans A.N.D / Heels Versace / Earrings Thomas Sabo 'Love Knot'

This post is a bit of an experimentation in more ways than one: firstly, as you can see I'm rocking a fluorescent orange Marni top that I snatched up from clearance. There's probably a good reason that it was in the final sale, as I can't imagine too many people would have thought that dayglo and burgundy is a staple item that they need in their wardrobe, but for the price I couldn't resist (and if there's one theme that runs through this blog - apart from heels, of course - it's that I can't resist a good deal). The second challenge was to find something to pair it with, but after failing to work it into a skirt or leggings combo, I found that boyfriend jeans contrasted perfectly with the fit and cut of the top. Add in a pair of sky-high Versace sandals - a pair I seem to never take off at the moment, and we were ready for a night out celebrating a friend's birthday with curry and cocktails.

Finally, my boyfriend picked up a strange little camera lens from Ebay which gives great effects, although neither of us have worked out how to use it yet! It's super-sharp in the centre of the image, but is *very* soft round the edges at the extremes of aperture (camera-jargon alert), and since we were already running late to the restaurant, we had to pick a setting and hope for the best. Thoughts and opinions on any of the above, please!

Hot hot heat

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 with 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.
