Can a leopard change its spots?

I think my leopard shoes can indeed change their spots!

I was feeling in a kooky mood this morning, so I opted to wear my spotty Topshop socks with my current favourite KG leopard heels – clashing prints is fun! I got a few second glances but that’s ok, fashion is there to provoke and provide intrigue! What better way to update your look than with a £3 pair of socks and your favourite heels…

Clashing prints!

I think next to try will be a whole outfit, perhaps a mishmash of spring florals… watch this space for how I get on!

Sunny side up!

The March glossies are full of slick new season advertising campaigns featuring many a model wearing super chic sunglasses.

So I got thinking! I need to update my eyewear for summer. This is an area that I must admit this is an accessories area I neglect, instead I opt to purchase clothes and footwear, much safer options and the cost per wear is more economical, especially given the UK daylight/sunshine hours! The eyes though are my view of the world and I should treat them with care. My past eyewear purchases have mostly consisted of high street bargains, £20 here and there on a quick holiday fix – I think this is due to the fact that I am very clumsy and I break/drop/scratch sunglasses/reading glasses all the time!

This must stop! I have decided to treat myself to a designer pair this season, and I already have a wee shortlist.


Ray Ban original Wayfarers; striped yellow and dark green frame
ChloƩ; square-framed sunglasses (from The Outnet)
RetroSuperFuture; Elysian print frame (exclusive to Liberty)

Pay day is the 15th February - decisions decisions!

Sharing a new purchase…

A few little shop visits were made last week, so I now share with you my first charity shop bargain of the year; an embossed leather belt that I am sure to wear a lot this summer, nothing beats a tan leather belt I say and… It was only £1!

It reminds me of something you could pick up in a market on holiday, that’s probably why I like it so much, always holiday dreaming!

Lovely leather belt
Also had a spree in H&M last weekend and bought a beige sleeveless dress, following the advice in the February Issue of UK Vogue about sleeveless blazers/jackets being a key item for the season ahead. I am opting for the dress version for this spring – just as soon as it stops raining!

Onwards and upwards in search of more wardrobe purchases for the sunshine season!
