Outfit: July 16th - 1940s

Dance Shoes


Last weekend we went to stay with some friends and visited the annual 1940s event in a town close to where they live. I spotted (forgive the pun) this dress in a charity shop several months back and snapped it up for just £6. It's a modern day dress but I think it has a 1940s look to it, and I saw at least two other ladies wearing the same one.

Primark black pumps


I figured jeans and pumps for the office needed smartening up a little, even if it was Friday, so I added a blazer. I don't wear this top very often and I'm not loving it here. I think it would look better teamed with a pencil skirt.

So I have grey and white pumps and I figured I'd add a black pair in too, so I can keep wearing them into next season. Summer has finally arrived in the Frozen North (hello 30 degrees celsius!) so it seems strange to be thinking about next season, but it will be upon us before we know it.

Primark White Pumps


This dress is the twin sister of the black and white striped one that I have been wearing a lot lately. It also comes in an olive colour which, at just £6, I would totally have bought had they ever had my size in store. But I love the navy version almost as much as the striped one and wore it a couple of times last week. I styled it with my white pumps (because, of course) which I have worn so much that I have worn a hole in the sole. Oops. Luckily I have a back up pair (not identical but close enough) so it's all good.

Blink snakeskin flats


I went to visit my friend S in Bristol the second weekend in July and we my have done a little shopping. I don't usually find any shoes that fit me in TK Maxx (they have a habit of labelling US size 9s as UK size 9s which is just depressing) so when I found this pair of snakeskin flats I was very excited. They tick all the boxes for everything I look for in a shoe right now: flat (walking to work), pointed toe, and straps (I am finding flats way easier to walk in if they are attached to my foot in some way, either with straps or laces). So I had to snap them up. They are by the brand Blink (which I have previously only seen in Brantano, so they're not high end or anything) but that meant they weren't expensive.

I am loving easy, stretchy dresses this summer so that was the obvious choice for showing off my lovely shoes. It wasn't very warm last week, thank to a lovely northerly wind, so I added a jacket too.

Black jeans and a black and white check top were brightened up by the awesome orange jacket. It's like a hi-vis vest - you can definitely see me coming when I wear it!
