So here we are kicking off a new season of my blog with a little outfit of the day featuring my new 'Vans' as the star of the show (and yes, it pains me to say this!) 

Ok, so I've never been a big 'Vans' fan, mainly because if I'm feeling in a 'trainer' mood I'm pretty loyal to my Nike slash Converse collection.  I've always steered away from brands like Vans, considering them to be a little too 'skater' for the likes of me who could quite happily live in pretty flats and heels! 

However....recently, I'd been coveting a pair of the Celine Pull-On sneakers,seeing them pop on my Instagram feed regularly.  Now, for a pair of what can only be described as 'daps', the price tag was too steep for me to even consider buying a pair, particularly as they'll be an 'in season and out the next type' of shoe.  I'd tried on a couple of the pairs of imitation Celines in the likes of Zara and Topshop but they were really uncomfortable.  

Then, I stumbled across a picture on @WeronikaZalazinska's Instagram feed of her wearing a lovely snakeskin pair of Vans with black jeans, white t-shirt and a trusty black blazer....SOLD.   I bought them that weekend and wore the exact same outfit for my flight out to Dubai last week. 

Today was Mother's Day in the UK and I wanted something warm and comfy to wear....this is what I opted for.  Special thanks to my Mum who's Mother's Day duties also included taking pictures of me in the garden in the freezing cold! :) 

(excuse my stupid facial expression throughout - I was obviously having a Chandler moment today!) 

  • Coat - Topshop - Boyfriend Coat (no longer available)
  • Sweatshirt - Zara - not online anymore but still available in store

In other news, I've just returned from Dubai and had such a great time (I'm already planning my next trip there!) I'll be doing a full post soon about that (expect lots of touristy style photos and ramblings about where I went and what I did) I've got a few make up reviews to do for you too :) 

Very pleased to be back blogging again, catch you all soon!

  3. I love vans so there is no doubt that I love these ones! It's funny because I've never been a nike fan but have been looking at some recently.
