    The Black & White Loafer

    Monday 30th Dec 2013

    Whilst sometimes challenging (read: often torturous), I regularly extol the virtues of a heel.

    It’s great being a few inches taller – so much so that I’m often known to exclaim “This feels like my natural height” (and with a size 9 foot, maybe it is).

    I’m not entirely sure who I’m trying to convince though* because truthfully, I’m much happier in a flat shoe.

    So this is the serendipitous thing – all those designers that I love have come on-board this season (and last season… and next season) with a full-fashion endorsement of flat shoes. Yay!

    One of my favourites is the black and white loafer. It’s like a little tuxedo for your feet and looks super cute either dressed-down with a sweat top and your boyfriend jeans, or dressed-up with a black cropped pant or tailored skirt,

    Need no more convincing?

    Black Lace

    Wednesday 11th Dec 2013

    Me: I love wearing black lace. It’s so practical.
    You: Huh?!?
    Me: And did I mention versatile? Yup, really versatile.
    You: Um… ok…

    Let me explain…

    My wardrobe has 3 personalities:
    1. Work Me: tailored, feminine, practical
    2. Date Night Me: fun, whimsical, slightly impractical
    3. Mother Of A Toddler On A Playdate Me: fun, comfy and machine washable

    Black lace is a no-brainer for ‘Date-Night-Me’.

    It also makes regular appearances on ‘Work-Me’, say a black lace skirt with a white tee and a tailored jacket, or a lace shirt with tailored pants.

    Lately I’ve been noticing however that it’s been popping up on ‘Mother-Of-A-Toddler-On-A-Playdate-Me’ as well – sometimes a bra peeking out from beneath a singlet top, or maybe a camisole teamed with denim cutoffs. And all whilst still remaining fun, comfy and machine washable!

    Convinced?
