Happy Friday! It may be a dull and gloomy day but I am all sunshine inside as it is almost the weekend. The lovely folk at Aspire Style have kindly sent me an Emily and Fin from the new collection and have given me a 10% discount code to share with you guys! The code is million10 and is valid til 15th October. The second wave of the Emily and Fin Autumn/Winter collection is about to arrive along with this scrummy winter floral longer length Lucy dress, exclusive to Aspire. All styles are available to pre-order but you won't have to wait very long as they are due in any day now. I was torn between the yours truly Lucy I opted for and this beautifully retro Abigail dress. In the end I went for yours truly partly because I am a sucker for an adorable print but mostly because it is navy and I get another excuse to wear my new shoes! Even my watch is navy this season!! I dug out my Miss Selfridge cardigan as I think it compliments the letter print perfectly.
I absolutely adore my new Clarks x Orla Kiely shoes, just look at the cuteness! You can see by the sole they have already become a firm favourite, I haven't even had them a week yet and have worn them every day. I decided to go for the navy ones as I prefered the contrast of colours to the all black ones and wasn't as keen on the t-bars in real life. The shape of the t-bars isn't quite as expected and I also didn't expect pony skin. Not a big fan of hairy shoes though I may still have to purchase them as they are still lovely - I just prefered the shape and look of the navy ones. They felt a bit tight across my foot so I went up half a size. I am technically a 4.5 but wear a 5 in most shoes and got these in a 5.5, Maria also found she needed to go up half a size with her black ones. I have been after a pair of navy shoes for a while but not found any I really liked though I am currently wearing them with black tights and trying to get over my hatred of black and navy together. It's not been as hard as I thought it would be! Haha.
