n is for Nelly.. and new shoes

Hello there! I’ve been a little quiet this weekend because I’ve been down in Leeds for Becky’s birthday, but just before I left I got a nice little surprise through the post. Remember the Nelly shoes launch party last month? Well my shoes arrived on Friday! Now I’d opted for the Kim shoes in fuchsia but as you can see in my last post I was doubting myself and wishing that I had ordered the mint green Jade shoes. And guess which ones they sent me? Some clever PR must have read my mind! Or maybe my blog..

I’m so pleased they did though because they’re so much more versatile than the fuchsia Kim’s would have been! Plus they have quite a nice sized heel (just under 4 inches) which means they work as both day and night time shoes. I’ve also noticed they go extremely well with my new trousers that I’ve had on today.. I picked them up in Primark this weekend in Leeds but I’m still a little confused about how I feel about them. You can’t really see from the photo but they’re a lush shape pyjama style black trousers with a floral print. For a while now I’ve admired pj style trousers on others and yes they do have the comfort appeal, but I never really pictured myself in a pair. Then when I spotted these reduced to £7, I couldn’t resist.

And don’t they look cute with my new shoes?

P.s If you’re wondering about the blister on my foot, I am living proof right now of how dangerous a pair a GHD’s can be (if you stand on them).

    Omg I am I love with those shoes! They are so incredibly on trend with their mint hue and metal toe: and they look fabulous on you too. I agree, I think I would like this mint ones better than fuschia too.

    Gorgeous, they look awesome with the trousers – I think the printed trousers that are about these days always go best with a pair of striking heels x

    Ooh…I think they work with your pajama trousers really well. The color from the floral print complements those killer ( ! ) shoes beautifully. 🙂

    Snap! I was at the Nelly launch too and asked for Kim and Jade shoes! Was also secretly relieved that they sent me the more sensible pair! Can't wait to take them for a spin! Just discovered your blog but I'm already hooked! x
