|1 - velvet sandals, £58 Topshop|
|2 - hedgehog print jumper, £35 River Island|
1 - there is something about velvet which, every year, makes me think of wrapping up warm for winter as the days get shorter..i'm don't think i have a favourite season; whilst i love to sit on the beach and read a book, or to work on my suntan in the garden, i equally like those crisp and frosty wintery days, when you can see your breath in front of you, and wrapping up warm in knitted layers! velvet also makes me think of parties - especially birthday parties when i was of primary school age, and used to have a "party dress" (usually velvet, probably bought by my nan, with some sequins or something!)..
hence why i like these sandals so much, regardless of the fact that they break all of my usual shoe rules - i don't tend to favour chunky heels, i'm not a huge fan of peep toes,.and yet i am mentally making room for a shoebox on top of my already over-flowing stack for these topshop sandals!
2 - continuing the winter wishlist theme, i really love the look of this hedgehog print jumper ( i like a lot of the chelsea girl range at river island at the moment!) i don't often wear jumpers, i find that i get too warm in them, and usually prefer to throw on a cardigan over an outfit, but i really like the print on this..could be one for the xmas list...
