Still getting a tan in winter

tan shoes from Matalan circa 2007 I think

What is it about tan shoes that just really make an outfit pop or warm up a winter ensemble? There's something I really like about the richness of the colour especially with dark blue jeans.
My sister gave me these never-worn platforms from Matalan a couple of years ago. I love them and they have a bit of a retro seventies feel to them.  I call them my 'four-hour' shoes because, to be honest, that's about as long as I can actually wear them! Unfortunately they are really uncomfortable, I'm not sure if its the wooden heel and platform that aren't really that flexible but after a couple of hours wear my feet are ready to set free.  I just like them so much that I can't bear to part with them.  I guess I'm living up to the saying that fashion is pain.
I think I'm in need for a tan

Is the book you were referring to called 'A Vintage Affair' by any chance? If so, I have it and it's one of my favourite books! xx
