Outfit photos from Saturday evening. After a day of wandering around town with my friend, I went for a swim and then to pick her up for her birthday meal out - we went to the local Frankie and Benny's, which was great fun. I was pleased that I'd been for a swim beforehand; I didn't feel quite so bad about the giant pizza we shared!
When it comes to shoes, I'm not often drawn to low heels. I've always been more of a high heels kinda gal - the higher the better seems to be my motto, lately. I've often worried that kitten heels and low shoes would make my legs look too chunky.
But something about the print and chunky nature of these gingerbread heels really drew me in and caused me to override my usual rule, and they seemed like the perfect match with this cardigan and various minty accessories for this Laura Ashley dress. I think perhaps stilettos would have had me feeling a bit too dressed up for an early teatime meal out (we were dining with a little one so had to make it early!)
Maybe there's hope for me in terms of a low heels branch to my ever-growing shoe collection..? I've seen a few TUK pairs recently which I'd be happy to make another exception for..
