As are starting to get the odd day of sunshine and its giving me hope that Spring is around the corner, and I am, for now, choosing to ignore the fact that the mud at on my lane is around 4″ deep and thinking forward to a spring update to my wardrobe.
We will be needing the power of layering and our winter coats for some time but, if like me you are getting a little fed up of donning your trusty old ankle boots (mid summer I’ll be longing for them again) one of the easiest ways to have a refresh is opting for an alternative. I would love it to be time for the Mule but it just not (my elephant feet heave a sigh of relief). So the next best thing to me is the Brogue, but not any old Brogue oh no, the Flatform Brogue. See what I did there, I’m still keeping you away from the mud!
I’ve found a few of my favourites. Ideal worn with the wider trousers that are coming through with the spring collections, or a cropped/ankle skimming jeans and if like me you’re not a fan of cold ankles Topshop have some fab fishnet and glittery socks that I like to wear to prevent my transparently white legs from going blue.
Zara Faux Patent Brogues with Slogen Print Bow £29.99
These shoes are a great price and I like the laces but if not quiet your think I found some lovely ribbon laces from Amazon for just £3.99.
Zara Platform Derby Shoes with Heart Detail 29.99
I absolutely love these, and these would look fantastic with a suit or tailored dark trousers.
Stradivarius Metallic Flatform Brogues £29.99
The silver shoe seems to be around again this S/S so these are a fabulous option. Also being lighter they will work well with midi skirts and dresses.
Dune Glorya £85.00
I’m not going to lie I love Dune, their shoes just seem to fit me really well and I may or may not have a few pairs of Loafers and Mules from them I picked up in the sales waiting for temperatures to go above 12′. So these may have been added to my collection and they are incredibly comfortable and I love the contrast of suede and patent leather.
Aldo Wabolia Silver Brogues £70.00
Possibly not the most practical right now but would you just look how pretty they are!
