The Comfy Commuter

I call this post the comfy commuter as its the perfect shoe to wear on your daily commute if you travel via public transport and have to cover a fair distance by foot.  But really the shoe that goes with any outfit, smart or casual, I just luuuurve to wear this shoe.  The shoe in topic is the sneaker.  This particular post hones in on the neutral sneaker that will go with everything, will not make an obvious statement, but more of a subtly cool one with its muted tones.  It will also ensure the feet feel extremely comfortable, happy and stylish.  Heaps of inspo to get you going places faster 😉

My top picks of the most classic, understated but very cool looking sneakers to go with absolutely any outfit.  All neutrals but a different style to suit every taste.

If you like to keep things a bit more classic and understated then these are certainly for you.  Think the cream chino and blue blazer kinda gal, the clean, neutral finish goes with everything from your white shirts and trenchcoats to your black pencil skirts and blazers (because as the classic understated dresser, that is what you should have in your closet ;-))…

Slightly trendier, think boyfriend coats and ripped jeans, however this will also pair well with your grey knitted dress.  For that added height and extra bounce this is sure to tick the boxes for the fast paced

Now these bad boys cannot be taken lightly, you need to be a serious sneaker junkie and you gotta wear these with swagger.  They are the Aston Martins of sneakers.  High end and a hefty price tag. Give me a metallic something on my feet any day but choose from a wide selection of colours

An old favourite, the high top gives it more edge than its low top sister. I’m a big fan and believe every shoe closet needs a pair (or 3 if you are me) The original chuck taylor of Converse

I’ve already featured Nike but I am in the market for a pair of these (as I am for all of them I guess)

 Happy Shoesday!


Weekend Wear

This weekend we will be attending a 1st Birthday party.  This one is special because its good friends of ours little boy who is turning 1! And the best part is they have refreshingly chosen an adults venue rather than the usual in-door soft play.  The venue is quite chic in Chelsea, London where all the trendy Londoners hang out.  Sorry I should rephrase that to, some of the trendy Londoners, NOT all 😉

So the outfit has to look somewhat chic, but it is a kids birthday after all and I will most likely come away with chocolate cake all over me.  I need to be comfy too, as I will spend most of the time running after my 21 month old son…

SO I am thinking something along the lines of below.  A classic white silk tee with pocket detail. Jazz it up with a gold spiked necklace and white ring with gold small stud detail.  Jeans are a must, I love these distressed Current/Elliot skinnies. Snearkers obviously for all the running around, these gold Ash ones below are so cute with extra pazazz. A simple but elegant black coat to throw on over top and we all need a scarf in this weather, this gorgeous leopard print with green and gold detail is divine and brings in a nice pop of colour to the outfit.  I will carry a large black leather shopper for all the toddler paraphernalia that needs to be lugged with us.
