Good afternoon everyone and a very Happy Friday!
To bring in the weekend I thought I'd bring you a little more shopping inspiration (uh oh) with some ideas for fancy footwear that will take you from work to play all in one day.
Inspired by London Fashion Week and the very welcome revelation that flat shoes are soon going to be all the rage - comfort and style a combination that we rarely see. Plus having recently purchased and got all excited about En Brogue (pictured below) I have trawled the web for some of my favourite flat options that I hope will inspire you in the office and beyond!
En Brogue is a blog written by Hannah Rochell a Features Editor at InStyle Magazine and a flat shoe fanatic! Her mantra 'Love Fashion, Love Shoes, Hate Heels' has now expanded into the pages of a great book by the same name as her blog and it has been providing me with inspiration all week!
Being quite tall anyway I don't often reach for heels, not because I don't like being extra tall but I just tend to be drawn towards shoes of a flatter nature. When a pair of heels do grace my size seven sweeties it will only take a moment for me to begin wincing in pain and discomfort and I'm soon reaching for the nearest pair of comfy shoes and switching my allegiance anyway.
So as you can imagine this blog and book really appeal to me and not only that I have it on good authority that it will soon be the season of the flat. The catwalks at recent fashion weeks showed models gracefully striding down the runway in much lower creations than they usually have to navigate, showing us that you can look cool and be comfortable after all - music to my ears (and feet).
In honour of this exciting new trend I have put together the collection below with some of my favourite swish but smart picks for work. Shoes that I hope will see you through from day to night and keep you smart and comfortable all day along the way. Just click on the picture to be taken to more detail and information.
So what do you think? Will you be rocking the flat this season or are you a fully fledged heel fan that can't be swayed? Let me know which camp you're in and in the meantime have a lovely weekend!
(Oh and just to note these are just choices that I personally love the look of - this is not a sponsored post).
