Summer's coming...

Tuesday, 14 June 2011


I always carry a pair of flats in my bag. Always. 

No matter how many times I try and convince myself that "Oh these are the most comfortable heels I've ever worn" and Yes they usually are - for those few minutes I bounce around admiring them in my room - but just wait until I get to town! LOL! These pretty little peep toe flats came in so handy yesterday, I tell you! (Feel free to "spot the difference" in the shots ahaha!)

Got up really early in the morning and drove down to London with my sister Kezia, and friends Claude and Jennifer for a shoot we were working on. The shoot was in West London, just round the corner from Westfield (Kezia and I were very happy about this, as you can imagine) and on our Lunch break, we headed off to the Shops, then for a bit of Nandos!

I'm in the middle of shuffling all my stuff from Nottingham to London for the (really long) Summer Holidays, so it's been a bit manic! Will hopefully be settled by the end of the week! 

Hope you're well! :) ..xo

I have these wedges, and I do love them, and they're reasonably comfortable, but I'm useless in heels of any kind. I just take them off as soon as it's feasible!

Haha..sorry! I should have looked there first. Thanks :-)

Ooh and you should post some more items for sale.. do some spring cleaning :-D

Kerissa said...

I like the combo with the blazer over a basic white sundress. This is why I read blogs for ideas that are doable. As much as I like wedges, I favor the look with the flats. Either way you look darling and I love the lippie :))

Shirley said...

Oh sorry Belinda, just read your question! It was £29.99! :)
