Shoe of the week

Chloe Jade Green, the Topshop heiress, has launched her second shoe collection. The whole collection just screams 'its holiday time'! The Rio Leopard shoes stand out for me, perfect for dancing the night away whether your preference is for salsa, disco or hip hop.

Flower power

Experiencing pre-Spring sunshine and these fab tights from Veneziana inspired this floral-themed work outfit.  The Marianne tights are just that little bit fabulous, I almost felt I was having a Shakira moment!

They were the perfect accessory to complement the floral jacket that I bought on impulse at Primark but had no idea when or how I was going to wear it.  Naturally my trusty red shoes were added on for that extra pop of colour.  Here's to more sunny days!

Booty bag

I am usually quite rubbish when packing a suitcase, my shoes end up wrapped in plastic bags; to prevent damage to my clothes and to keep the shoes together.  This is a far better option than opening the suitcase and finding a random shoe without its other half or realising halfway though the first night of your holiday that you are wearing odd shoes (I know someone who did this but perhaps the numerous cocktails were an additional factor in that fashion catastrophe).  Wrapping your favourite shoes in your local supermarket bags is not the classiest way to complement a neatly packed capsule wardrobe, I mean what would Carrie Bradshaw think!

So before my trip to New York, I thought I would add a little extra style to my packing by making some shoe bags, with the assistance of my lovely mum and some pretty vintage-style material from Grace & Favour, a local store selling fabulous fabric. Designed like an old school sports bag with a separate section for each shoe or boot and a drawstring to close up the bag, my shoes can now can travel in safety and most importantly in pairs.

'Have shoe bags, will travel' is my new motto.

No sleep till . . .

My trip to New York, the city that never sleeps, is getting nearer. Trying to plan a capsule wardrobe when it appears that we may experience four seasons in one day is proving a little difficult.  From sunshine one day, to 60 per cent chance of snow, my dreams of dressing /Carrie Bradshaw' style appear to be a tad impractical.   So its back to the drawing board, or should that be Pinterest, to figure out what to pack.

Shoe of the week

Sarah Jessica Parker has just launched her first shoe collection for Nordstrom.  With a combination of heels, flats, colours and styles, it's like she's created the perfect capsule shoe collection just for Carrie Bradshaw.

The 'Diana' pump reminds me of the episode where Carrie Bradshaw is introduced to the Vogue closet and discovers an urban shoe myth.

I'd love to know what Carrie Bradshaw would think of the collection.

Time to share

Those lovely peeps at Veneziana sent  me a package of tights and socks to try out  and I wanted to share the Veneziana love around and see what a younger fashionista would think.  So the Girasole ankle socks were the perfect option for my niece 'O' to try out.

Over the past couple of years, she has been building up her own fashion sense and her way of pairing cute shoes with pretty ankle socks for weddings and parties made her a perfect candidate for testing them out.  I think her Topshop shoes and the Girasole made a cute combination, what do you think?

Shoe of the week

Boohoo is perfect for young fashion-conscious girls who want their fashion needs met, while working with a limited budget.

I  love neon and brights and these Boohoo shoes are perfect to add that pop of colour to an outfit.
