Shoesies From Solestruck.

A month or so ago Danielle from Solestruck.com kindly asked if I would like to pick out some shoes from their website that they would send to me. They arrived at my parent's house about three weeks ago but this week was the first chance I've had to go home and pick them up.

When I was first emailed about the offer, I browsed other blogs to see what types of shoe other bloggers had chosen, and the majority seemed to have picked exciting heeled shoes.
Whilst I was browsing the selection of shoes I actually found myself looking soley at high heels and wedges, until I realised that I'm just not someone that can confidently wear heels on a day to day basis. I probably pop them on a few times a week for meals out or nights out dancing, but as for daytime wear I almost always opt for the safety of flats and boots. (This is something I'd like to change, and every day I think to myself "maybe I will wear heels tomorrow day time"... But I rarely take myself up on the offer, tut)

So, I put my mind into sensible mode (difficult) and decided to choose a boot that I would get lots of wear out of. And so I decided on the Jeffrey Campbell 'Kent' in black.

They're a buttery soft leather cuffed brogue-style lace up/ ankle boot combo, and they fit like a dream. I just love being able to either slip them on as a simple laced boot, or turning down the part that makes it into a boot to reveal the silver metallic fabric inside and transforming the shoe into a cuffed lace up flat!

Shoes that can be worn in two ways may possibly be the best thing ever!
Thanks Soletruck!

P.S Exam season = very, very sporadic posting and overall crap blogger.

    When you commented how your boyfriend gave you a plant and then HE died I first though you were talking about your boyfriend! hahaha (luckily, not so^^)
    Oh I am not good with plants, either. I am just hoping I will manage to keep my orchid alive (I think I killed my bamboo, though :( )

    I would wear my heels more often but I live on a steep hill and have to go down to catch a tram to the city... so its more of a pain in the ass than its worth it.. Thats in Germany.
    Back in the UK the streets are ancient and im afraid to trip! I miss normal, straight, easy to walk on pavements!
