The Shoe Girl Styles It: ASOS Did You See That

Hola! I was intrigued by these trainers in the 'new in' section this week, so thought I'd attempt to style them. It's not often I choose flats or trainers, because I tend to stick to my own style, but if I were inclined to wear them, I'd totally do it like this!

Day 1033 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Cream floral 'Hello Ha' Irregular Choice

It's not difficult to see why this style quickly found it's way into the Iconic collection, reinvented each season in new prints and patterns.  It's certainly one of my favourites and always seems to come in the prettiest of colours and fabrics.  A few months ago, I showed you the navy pair (and am still not over the original mint ones slipping through my fingers) and I bought this cream version at the same time as the blue.

The Shoe Girl Styles It: Terry de Havilland Jay

Yo, yo, yo, what's happening today? I've been doing a little bit more in my shoe room, starting to get things organised properly, rather than the 'thrown in' look it's been sporting. It's amazing the difference it makes, when there's some order to the shoes. Very hard work and time consuming though. I haven't forgotten about the second part of the shoe room post, it's just been delayed with illness, but I'm hoping to tackle it this week. I was actually browsing through all the photos I've taken along the way earlier today.  Then once the room is complete, we can have a proper tour!  Very exciting!  Anyway, back to today and a luxe TSGSI for the weekend.

The Shoe Girl Styles It: Irregular Choice Wanda's Wish

Hello lovelies. I've mentioned before that sometimes I struggle with these posts and other times it just comes together so quickly. I procrastinated all last week with this one, then today it just fell into place, after scrapping three previous looks! Sometimes you just need to look at it with fresh eyes and maybe not be so specific in what you think you're looking for.

Day 1032 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hola! I went with something very fun and bright for Shoesday Tuesday this week. Hopefully it'll cheer you up, if you're feeling a bit sluggish. It's been quite amusing (and embarrassing) seeing our town on TV for the golf over the past week, with the world watching our typical Scottish summer day. Rain, high winds, bright sunshine, flooding, warmth, cold, calm, all one after the other. Changeable is definitely the best way to describe it right now, you just don't know what you're going to get. I know several people feeling down about the weather and our supposed 'summer'.  These shoes scream sunshine though, because check out that whopper of a heel!

Day 1031 - Shoesday Tuesday

Another outfit post for you this week, rather than just shoes. I figured I may as well work my way down the very long to-do list! I wore this back in May when I had a dentist appointment, remember I had two outings in the same week, then fell sick and thus the blog break began! Speaking of, I'm really happy that I'm managing to blog regularly again, I'm still not up to speed (I will get back to reading your blogs very soon), but I'm coping-ish.

The Shoe Girl Styles It: Free Fish Ray (Glitter)

Hello lovelies, awful humid today, I'm melting a little. Breezier outside I believe, but until I figure out a way to plug a PC into the soil and therefore blog outdoors, I'm staying inside! I've picked another pair of flats for TSGSI today, the second time this week, which is unlike me. I love this whole look though, it's fabby.

The Shoe Girl Styles It: Miss L Fire Rhonda

Hello chickies, how are you all today? I had an appointment yesterday (yes, the appointment, I've been waiting months for) which took me out of the house (gasp) for a couple of hours and the hope of having energy to blog afterwards, was just a thought that didn't materialise! The appointment itself was a bit of a letdown, though I certainly wasn't expecting a miracle cure. I forgot how super annoying he was (last time I saw him was 10 years ago) and wanted to roll my eyes at literally every sentence out of his mouth, so was proud I only did it once (when he wasn't looking)! I had my sister in stitches last night as I mimicked him and his silly analogies and charts. Of course sitting in the same position in an uncomfortable wheelchair for a couple of hours has meant I'm really sore and the early start was tiring, but hey ho it's done and I came home to find a new pair of shoes had arrived. Yay, that makes everything better! Ok, so I have a sneaky confession with the outfit in this post, if you're on my Facebook, you'll have already seen.

Day 1030 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hello, I'm back-sorry for leaving it so long between posts! I mentioned back in May that I fell sick on my birthday (it was horrible) and I've really been struggling to recover. The sicky feeling eventually left me and I slowly got back to eating, but my energy and concentration levels were nil. Usually I'm itching to get blogging, but I couldn't face sitting at a computer all day or muster up any energy or inspiration for writing, editing or even reading blogs. It's really not pleasant when you're unable to do anything, but that's the way it's been.  I took a proper time-out and have to admit, I didn't miss it one little bit (sorry)! Blogging and the online community is such a huge part of my life, so I feel like I should force myself back into it though. That sounds worse than the reality, I'm trying to prepare in advance and do little bits at a time, easing myself in, because of course, I'm very much aware that if I do too much, I'll be back at square one. Constant battle!  Anyway.

The Shoe Girl Styles It: Markus Lupfer Crystal Jellies

Wow, it's so long since I've done this, I've almost forgotten what to do! I'm hoping to be back to blogging full-time this week, but I shan't promise anything before I know it's sustainable! You may be wondering why I'm styling 'designer' shoes during the week (usually reserved for the weekend TSGSI), but even at full-price these sandals were cheaper than some high-street shoes and now that they're in the sale, they are too bargainious (totally a word) to keep until the weekend.
