My continuing obsession with furry slides ………

Last week when I flew out of Canada it was freezing but I hate to wear  shoes or boots when I fly long haul so my solution was my Zara furry slides with socks (channeling Isabel Marant)! Even if I say so myself it worked very well.

As always one pair is never enough I am always on look out for another pair in different colour or style. I do believe that this pair by Chloe are probably my ultimate pair but the others are pretty cool as well.

I am a little obsessed with faux fur and sparkles…..

I think you would have to be alit hard hearted not to love these sandals just a little bit! I love faux fur on shoes (however impractical they are) and add a little sparkle and I am in heaven (always been a Miu Miu girl)

These sandals may not be practical but how much fun would they be teamed with jeans and tee running around store (personal shopping(

15 Winter Coats that will make cold days so much better….

Last winter I took the plunge and bought a wool winter coat for the first time in many years and I loved it. I am a complete Parkaholic and I can prove it but even i know you can only wear so many.

This year my thoughts are already turning to stylish winter coats and there are so many to choose from!

As you all know Isabel Marant is always top of my list for just about everything and the coat that is becoming an obsession is obviously by my favourite Parisian fashion brand.

Isabel Marant: I have just found my perfect winter dress

I just love this dress it just ticks all of my boxes. I could wear it anywhere but most importantly I could have bare legs and ankle boots. (my favourite combo)

I feel my new Zara aviator jacket and cap would just work perfectly with it.

Reasons for and against Biker jacket v Aviator jacket

All of my thoughts have turned either my trip to Canada in October or Lima Dreaming at the end of December, two very different trips with very different weather.

I spotted this burgundy biker jacket by Zara the other day and I fell completely in love with colour. I am already planning outfits and deciding what bags would work with it.

My reasoning for my desperate need to buy this jacket is my trip to Canada. I an going to Vancouver Island so the weather shouldn’t be freezing at the end of October but it will be wet some days. I would team it with my new corduroy cap, also from Zara for a perfect combination for walks, play parks as I will be with my little munchkins.

Zara Biker Jacket £89.99 here

The only downside to this jacket is the zip, I don’t know how i feel about the diagonal zip! I know this may seem trivial but I would rarely fasten it and this is why I like symmetry.

So, the question is should I opt for the Aviator jacket instead? It is only available in black but it gives perfect symmetry when open and the new cap would still work perfectly.   it would go over anything and everything ) It would also mean I could stick with my beautiful colourful bags (very important)

I do think I need to go to Zara and try them both on immediately.

I could add to the drama by including other jackets in the dilemma but at this price point it keeps it fun.

 

So many more additions to my winter wish list…..

There are so many pieces landing at the moment I barely know which way to turn! I love to wear new clothes instantly I am not very good at keeping them until the weather changes. The things I love today can all be worn now which makes it so much more fun.

This faux suede trench from Zara is very useful with the wonderful weather we are having.  It would go over everything and keep away the morning chill in a very pretty way.

I also love the coat below, it has a hood which I love and it definitley has a Isabel Marant feel about it. I am thinking this would be perfect for my Canadian adventure in October.

The perfect pair of jeans is always a challenge and I think I have found my next pair.

Zara Jeans with Side Frill £29.99 here

The colour of this Isabel Marant top is just gorgeous and I do like to add a piece to two every season.

I cant have a wish list without a Isabel Marant dress it just wouldn’t be right.

There are not so many shoes around at the moment that I love , or do I just have too many pairs already!

I tried these KG velvet pumps on in store (House of Fraser) and I love them. They feel very comfortable and look gorgeous, just perfect for personal shopping.  Unfortunatley they don’t appear to be on any websites yet.

KG Kurt Geiger velvet pumps £119

No matter what anyone says  I really want a pair of furry slides and I have found the perfect pair. They are super comfortable and will take me well into autumn (perfect for flying) I have already tried them and the size 3 was so big the 2 fit me (help)

Oh my goodness I love these Zara metallic mules…

I have loved furry mules ever since Gucci entered the paling field with their offerings, the only thing that ever stopped me buying was the price. It rains a lot where I live so the fur would be ruined very quickly!

Imagine my delight when I saw this metallic pair by Zara so pretty and such a great price. I don’t think I would take them into the street often but I would wear them for work (personal shopping).

A bit of an obsession faux fur embellished slides…..

It all started with the Miu Miu faux fur slides they are just so pretty, never to wear in real life just at home. (especially the rain) I know that isn’t very practical when you pay so much for them so I have found two great high street alternatives and I think you will agree they are just a s pretty.

Now I can’t decide whether or not I like the green faux fur better than the neat black jewelled flats by Other Stories (I need help or both!)

Must have item of the day Miu Miu faux fur slides……

I really do not care about how practical these slides are I think they are amazing! Can you imagine how pretty and comfortable you would feel with these on your feet.

The trick will be just don’t wear them in the rain!!
