My top 10 winter dresses to wear everyday ……..

Heels and flats 10 pairs of new season Mary Jane’s to love……

It is that time of year when all of my thoughts turn to a new season wardrobe. Today I am obsessing about shoes (nothing new there) that I can wear all day in store, personal shopping can be gruelling (in a wonderful way).

I alway love a Mary Jane shoe, they are so easy to walk in, the strap just adds a little more support.

For the past few weeks I have been looking  at these Kurt Geiger flats (obviously I have tried them) and I do love them but I have found a few alternatives!

KG Kurt Geiger Kingly Flats £119 here

The black suede with a jewelled strap make them perfect for winter wear.

I do have a very pretty pair of Miu Miu sparkly flat mary janes already but can you really ever too many pairs of Miu Miu’s

This midnight blue pair are just beautiful, but perhaps a little too high for walking all day.

Sticking with dark blue this velvet pair by Prada are pretty perfect with a great heel height.

My search for a navy jumpsuit I can wear everyday….

My work wardrobe needs a few new pieces and after searching for skirts and dresses that I can wear everyday (and failing) I have decided a new jumpsuit is the way forward.

One of my only requirements (apart from it bring navy) is pockets! I need somewhere to keep my swipe card. (vital)

Today I tried this navy jumpsuit from French Connection and it does look very nice. I have found another two potential candidates so I will try them all.

French Connection Esther Jumpsuit £110 here

This ones just beautiful, navy velvet what could you want.

Whistles Amber Velvet Jumpsuit £249 here

Two of a Kind Platform Ankle Boots|Suede Platform Ankle Boots|

I started this season really loving a pair of Miu Miu velvet platform boots and now I have something similar for a bargain price, imagine my delight when I spotted these KG platform boots on the House of Fraser website. (really couldn’t believe the price) They give me exactly the look I wanted without feeling guilty.
