Noo Shooes?

N.B. For some reason when anyone in my family buys and wears new shoes we always spend a few minutes saying 'noo shooooes?' in stupid voices. I have no idea why, but it had to make it into the title.

It has been an age since my last post. Life sort of caught up with me for a while, sorry about that. I did snap some pics of things to show you in my absence, which I'll probably slot in somewhere along the way in the next month or so.

Anyway, back to my current shopping habit...
I always envy those girls who wear cute non-flat shoes during the daytime, just to do casual tasks, and don't look like complete dicks. I do love ballet flats but wanted to dip my toe in the non-flat daytime-shoe pool and I stumbled across these, which I thought were pretty perfecto...

Comfy wedge heel? Check. Neutral tan colour? Check (although not demonstrated terribly well in this photo!). Suede? Check. Tassels? Check. Cheap student-friendly price? Check.

These cost me around £14 from good old Primark and I love them. Really comfy and still casual enough for the day-time but I'm hoping they'll just add that little something that sometimes ballet flats just lack. I had some boots like this but with a fur cuff last winter but they KILLED the balls of my feet, so hopefully these won't take my tootsies to the same fate.


(Please excuse the anklet you can just about see poking out there. I was clearly still in sunny Spain holiday mode. It has now been removed).
I'll hopefully report back in a month or so and tell you that I live in these boots. Otherwise they'll probably join the 'I'm pretty but am killing your feet one toe at a time' pile. Hopefully the former.


In other news...I'm still not sure what to do with my other blog. It's sort of just hanging there at the moment with nothing happening to it. It overlaps with this so I don't really want to keep it as it is, but I don't want to delete either...hm... I'll ponder it for a while longer I think.

That's all for now.
Hope you've had a lovely weekend :)
