These are the shoes in question...

Purchased from New Look for £24.99

These are not the sort of shoes I usually buy as I wouldn't really turn to them on an everday basis yet they're not high enough for me to constitute being 'night out' heels.
However, they are perfect as 'sensible' and comfortable heels. Primarily for a formal environment. 
I basically bought them to go with a suit/office wear for interview/work place scenarios. As I am now in my 4th and final year of my degree I felt I should have some suitable footwear for when the inevitable comes and I am thrust into the real world of job-hunting.
Although until then they will be safely tucked away in my wardrobe :)

As you can see from the first picture they're real suede, so I didn't mind paying a bit more than usual for New Look shoes. And they are actually really comfy too, which is obviously key here. The heel is just the right height to match a skirt suit for interviews etc in my opinion. Not too high to look like I've come straight from a club and not too flat and dowdy.

These were not my first choice, and I originally ordered a similar pair (the same price) but of which the heel/small platform were also suede. These were perfect and looked a little smarter than the pair pictured here (which I spent a while debating with myself whether the wedge material was too casual). However I had a nightmare with New Look's online ordering/delivery (which I won't go into right now, but it has subsequently been resolved) and never ended up receiving them...for them then to be permanently out of stock.

Anyone else have their 'sensible' work/formal/ heels that they crack out for the office? I would love some other suggestions for work-appropriate heels please.

Lots of love
