New Shoes

So after weeks of lusting after buynow/bloglater's Topshop footwear purchases from a while ago and many many near attempts of buying online (I can't even tell you how many times I put these into my shopping basket on the Topshop website!) I finally caved in a pretty major way and purchased both the black leather and the snake skin versions of the Topshop Kingdom Ghillie Flats and I have to say I'm not disappointed that I did! 

They are a great copy of the Aquazzura laced flats, available here, but without the hefty price tag and what I love about them is how you can dress them up with something like black jeans and a floaty top with a blazer for more evening appropriate look or they can be worn with ripped jeans and a t-shirt or vest for a more casual look for the day time.   

I also thought they'd be pretty good for the Autumn weather.....Always one to forward plan me! (or am I just desperately trying to justify my purchases! ha!) 

An added bonus, they're super comfortable, something which I didn't think would be possible for a shoe with copious amounts of lacing and lots of potential bits that could 'dig' in! 

As some of you may have noticed from my Instagram account (link at the top!) I have been in Harrogate this weekend for my sister's Wedding.  It was a fantastic day and Harrogate is such a gorgeous place...

Beautiful scenery,  impressive architecture, little boutique shops, SpaceNK (a bit of a novelty for me since we don't have one in Cardiff) Harrogate is without a doubt, very Instagram-worthy! and since I'm not one to waste a photo opportunity, here is a little outfit of the day for you with my new shoooooes! :) 


  • Shoes - Topshop Kingdom Snake Effect Ghillie Pointed Flats - get them HERE
  • Jeans - J Brand Jeggings in Black (so comfy!) - get them HERE
  • Shirt - Topshop - get similar HERE
  • Bag - Smythson East West Panama Tote - similar HERE

Hope you all have a great start to your week!  :)



  1. Love the flats! I got the red suede ones and then Steve Madden came out with all black suede ones and I died! Such amazing shoes. Will def check out these snake effect ones once I'm in Topshop next :)
