9 to 5 #Flats

I am an absolute believer in an office 'shoedrobe'. Ok I may have just invented that word but as you probably guessed, I am talking about a wardrobe for shoes only in your workplace. I simply can't imagine having to get in to town wearing the shoes I will be in for the day. I usually wear a pair of flats that more or less go with the outfit which means I can run out at lunch to run a few errands or if I'm late for a meeting I can speed walk through town. It also means that I have a few pairs of shoes to choose from at my desk and I can pick them at the time of a day that is much more appropriate (ie when I get there) than when I am leaving the house (ie half asleep).

I have been working on my collection of flats recently as they tend not to last too long and I find I often need a whole new collection come spring. I would probably get a lot more wear out of them if I went for something more expensive but I like a selection of different styles and colours so I have to compromise somewhere.

I am currently loving this simple but cute pair from Forever21, great buy at less than € 20! There's a lot more from F21 coming soon, I've been rediscovering their contemporary range ;)

During this odd time of the year when a jacket can be too much on a sunny morning I love a good cardigan that can double up as a jacket. This one here is from New York (Anthropologie in Chelsea Market, see my post on that trip HERE) and is so deliciously fluffy I keep it on even when the sun comes out ;)

RI summer range

If a few hours of sunshine here and there are not doing it for you anymore, you're probably dreaming of a summer holiday as much as I am!

I have not stopped gasping at swimwear in stores for the last few weeks. I am rather torn what look I'd like to sport at the beach this year. There seems to be so many options! I am quite likely to end up going for a little bit of all of them...

The one thing I am definitely into are the retro style bikinis. Some crochet fabrics paired with fab embroidered separates can be found in lots of different variances in the River Island's summer collection. Who says swimwear is only suitable for around the pool?! Mix it up with some cute separates and quirky accents such as kitsch sunglasses or furry accessories for day time cool. I love how this is not a very tropical, obvious and high street collection. If you dare to be a little bit different and maybe stick to black, white or silver this summer, River Island is the place to shop :)
