Hidden gems

I’ve done my homework that I set myself yesterday and have been hunting and discovering and loving finding my summer specials. They’re out, they’re going to be worn and their accompaniment will be a big fat smile on my face.

Seven day summer

DSC02455

This is it my Shoelets! This is summer. We’re in it right now and as far as my iphone weather app can see it is here for at LEAST the next 7 days so we have some work to do, ok?

WHO’S WITH ME? YEAH!!!!

Now, many of you ~ like my good self ~ have a bigger summer wardrobe than you do a winter wardrobe. It’s easy to do. Joomps and boots and coats are expensive whereas cotton printed slip dresses, vintage lace vests and a simple pair of leather flip flops can easily be bought in a lunchtime along with an Abokado sushi wrap and not a worry about our overdrafts. This means that we always have plenty of reserves due to less expensive clothing and a severe lack of opportunities to wear them.

Your opportunities are here. LET’S USE OUR STORES! This is the time to go head into your wardrobes, take out all of your summer pieces ~ even your ‘summer summer pieces’ that are normally reserved for holidays only ~ hang them, lay them, look at them and start making friends with them again.  As a nation we are constantly moaning about the weather so no doubt after this heatwave, that I simply like to call summer, has left our shores and headed over to France we will be moaning that we haven’t had a summer.

WELL THIS IS IT! Make the most of it and do me, the environment and your bank balance a favour and work it with what’s already in your wardrobe…Go forth my Shoelets and have fun with print, pattern, cool materials, fabulous shorts and lots of attitude….Get some skin on show {I’ve gone for legs, arms AND boobs in this outfit ~ little over excited} and slap that x factor 30 on. No one likes a Magda from ‘There’s something about Mary’

Sensible shoes

DSC02434

As I fill my Mother in on my plans for the next week ~ Berlin, Vienna, Paris ~ her parting words are

‘And I hope you’ve packed sensible shoes’

I desperately want to revert into a teenager telling her very loudly that 

‘I am quite capable of making my own shoe decisions, thank you very much, and should I choose to take ‘silly’ shoes to Europe then I will do just that! ‘

BUT…..I know she is right. Of course she is! These are the words that impart to all of my customers ~ Comfort is key ~ If I’m going to be hopping on and off trains with a wheelie case, traipsing round beautiful cities all day and expecting my feet to accompany me I need to house these plates of meat in the shoe equivalent of Lucozade. I found these flat, hardcore, rubber soled beauties in the sale at Topshop and am very excited about them being my travel companians across the continent.

I also bought these navy geek chic ‘school girl’ flatties but that’s another story for another day….

WEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…I’m off My Shoelets. Not for long mind. I shall return to the shores of this tiny island of bad weather and great humour next Wednesday. My packing was exceptional so will return with tales of fun tailored times in Europe.

Auf wiedersahn and Au Revoir…parting is such sweet sorrow. I’m off for a Schnitzel.

Summer plans

DSC00919

{kos last summer}

This time last year I made a list of  things that I wanted to achieve during the summer. I only managed four out of the ten. One is still ongoing {writing letters to everyone took longer than anticipated}, one was just plain ridiculous {what was I thinking wanting to make these. I’m not 17 & 8 stone!} and the last one ~ watch a film outside ~ was scuppered due to the preeettty bad weather we had.

Regardless of not being able to fulfill my dreams for those forth coming partially sun filled days I’m making a list again. YEAH!!! I love a list kids. These are my plans for Summer 2013:

1. Find a strapless bikini that suits my body

2. Try out a new and exciting salad once a week

3. Buy a cool pair of trainers that I can wear with trousers AND skirts.

4. Go swimming at least twice a week

5.Eat outside in the garden more often

6. Swim in the English sea {this was on my list last year but it has to be done, right?}

7. Find the perfect Mexican blouse

8. Start wearing hot pink lipstick {oh and find one first}

9. Be more adventurous with my hairstyles

10. Throw a themed BBQ in my back garden {I’m thinking Mexican. It’s gonna be a Mexican themed summer methinks}

Date night

A new dress, a killer heel and a date with the girls.

What more do we want out of the summer?

Hot leather

With summer finally cementing it’s status as officially HERE and what with a free afternoon I headed off to the common to lie around in the  sun…in leather shorts.

NOT RECOMMENDED.

a) A sweaty crotch is uncomfortable and b) leather heats up quicker than a tefal frying pan.  I didn’t last long in our beloved sun but at least my long loving leather shorts finally made an appearance this year.  Remember them from last summer?  You don’t! Well take a look here and refresh yourself with their fabulousness.
