What’s on our shoe radar? TOMS Classic Alpargatas in Drizzle Grey

If you’re based in the UK, the weather is fairly unpredictable these days, especially since we are supposed to be in the peak of Summer. It’s even harder to choose the best outfit, as you can experience four seasons within one day. When it comes to choosing the right shoes for this weather confusion, we always turn to TOMS. Not only are they comfortable, they offer on trend colour options and unique fabric choices. Currently, we are all big fans of the TOMS Classic Alpargatas in Drizzle Grey,  perfect for any type of weather and daily activities ( we would obviously not want you to walk in these in a torrential downpour). We like to pair our TOMS with a variety of grey hues, so soft t-shirts, tapered trousers and light knit jumpers? If the weather is warming up, we love TOMS with a flowing floral dress. If you’re on the go, TOMS look great your favourite denims and cute cotton tops.

The four shoes we are loving this week! 💕

New shoes are added daily to our website, and we often left spoilt for choice. Our team usually share their top favourites for the week, and we wanted to share them with you. Our selection is very heel focused, and who can blame us? It’s Summer time! the perfect excuse to make the most of strappy heels and show off your killer outfit. Which one is your favourite?

Marzipan Cross Strap Block Heels

Who can go wrong with the classics? The Marzipan cross trap heels are your day to night shoe. They look great with any outfit, especially with your daily denims. The Marzipan are comfortable and reliable, so we think a wardrobe essential?

Marrakech Two Part Block Heels

If you do not own a statement shoe as of yet, you need to purchase our latest Marrakech heels. These vibrant red heels make any outfit stand out, and we feel these give you that much needed shoe confidence. Paired with any outfit, from day to night, these red bring the right amount of sass.

Middle Two Part Block Heels

These Chic, Parisian style block heels with monochrome leather upper, and a slingback detail are a classic shoe choice. Paired with a flowing Summer dress, a killer attitude and we think you are ready for your next party? These shoes also look great with tailored black trousers.

What shoes are best for Lads on Tour?

So if you’re not too sure what we mean by ‘Lads on Tour’, we are basically giving a boy’s only vacation a humorous title. This type of holiday happens once a year, boys only (preferably best friends) and they pick a destination best suited to sun, sports and raucous fun. Similar to a girls holiday, it is a good excuse to create great memories, share many laughs and enjoy time off work. Packing for this holiday is simple, especially when we cover your shoes for the vacay. Depending on your destination, and your activities we suggest Toms, Sliders, Vans, Wovens and Boat shoes as great choices. We share some key points to styling these shoes:

Tips:

-Wear your sliders for some beach fun, easy to clean if sandy and super comfortable to trot about.Our Flume sliders are affordable and can be replaced easily if lost (this does happen on holiday)

Vans are your core trainer, they look great with both shorts and trousers, plus durable throughout the trip. Great to travel in too.

Toms are a classic espadrille that is comfortable and can look smart when needed. Ideal for beach bar excursions or the cheeky night out (depending on the clubs attire).

Boat Shoes and Wovens are your smarter choice, and always looks great with shorts. These can be worn out for that ‘special dinner’. If you’re lucky on your holiday, maybe a Summer fun date?

Weekend plans? We have a few in mind

We are totally in love with this weather, and hoping this will remain for the rest of Summer. We like to plan ahead and with the sun shining bright, we have a few spots we would like to share with you that will brighten anyone’s day:

Last Days of Shoreditch

A great spot to hang out with friends, enjoy the sun and eat delicious food

Petersham Nursaries

The ultimate green escape, where sipping tea and eating delicious cake among the flora is most suited to such fine weather.

Broadway Market

If you’re feeling pekish and want to enjoy local produce, we recommend Broadway Market on Saturday. It’s also a great spot to soak up the rays and lounge on their deck chairs.

Cool down with Chin Chin Ice-Cream

Who does not love a delicious ice-cream when the weather is hot? Especially when they are created by Chin Chin Parlor

Wimbledon Fever 🎾

The most anticipated annual Summer sporting event has kicked off, and we are no doubt embracing the Wimbledon fever. It is the oldest tennis tournament to date and has made sporting professionals like the William sisters, Andy Murray and  Roger Federer international stars. The tournament sets the scene for large jugs of Pimms, strawberries & cream and much suspense as the talented athletes battle it out for the Wimbledon title. We are indeed absorbed by the actual match however what you wear to this event is what captures us more. Excuse us for being a bit obvious in our choice of shoes, but all white is a must for this event. It is a Summer classic, and should leave you feeling cool. Play with this colour in various shoe forms, and we think it looks great with an all white outfit or classic washed denims. Keep it white for Wimbledon and shop our latest shoes x

 

Instagram of the week 💞🌸🎀💅

We might have a slight obsession with the colour pink and to be very honest, most Millenials love the hue. So it comes as no surprise that we are in love with Palm Vaults. This independent vegetarian cafe based in Hackney is filled with palm tree graphics, touches of neon pink and the most delicious cakes. The most perfect pink spot for your next meal. Their Instagram account is also your new go-to source for interior, food and fashion inspiration.

Glasto Fomo ⛱🎶❤️️

The Glastonbury Fomo (fear of missing out) has officially kicked in- well it started for us on Friday. Not only was the weather great for this world famous music event, locals mingled among noteworthy celebrities and headliners like Ed Sheeran stole the show. This iconic event is held in Somerset every year, where famous artists come together and exceed any festival expectation goers might have. The festival is a beautiful combination of performing artists both recognized and unrecognized, celebrating creativity and festivity. We were all eyes on the fashion ensembles, particularly from famous celebs, like Stella Mccartney, Millie Mackintosh, Stormzy and Cara. Hunter boots made their regular debut, in both long and short cuts. We are already awaiting the 2019 line-up and making sure we don’t miss out.

Scorcher steals for the week a head 🌞🌴

So whats the best or should we say coolest option for scorching temperatures? Nothing. Just kidding, choosing the right shoes and pairing them with light dresses or trousers are always a guaranteed win. Choosing your outfit for the day is determined on how smart you need to be for work, but also how cool you can be during our fiery heat week. With a mix from flat to mids, our shoes leave you looking great and feeling great. Strappy sandals, espadrilles, mules and slingbacks  are Summer classics. These shoes can be dressed down or dressed up, if you are wishing to wear them to work, choose shoes with added details to elevate your look. Whilst we all would love to be lounging by a crystal blue pool, we know that the only way to make the most of this climate is to buy yourself some new beautiful Office shoes.
