I haven’t done much shopping this month – really – I know it is partly from being sick with strep, but also I am well aware it is Dave’s 50th birthday on Sunday so obviously I am making sure it is a milestone that is marked with a little indulgence for him as opposed to me!
There are a couple of things, however, that I haven’t been able to resist!
I absolutely love my Zara ballet flats and knew I had to have them in this deep ruby when I saw them appear online the other evening.
Now for a surprise purchase – I REALLY didn’t like the Givenchy boots when I first saw them – I thought they were just too masculine compared to the Chloé Susannas. Now, though, after seeing them on several Instagram feeds I love them – but I still think they are a trend that won’t last, so I really didn’t want to pay the Givenchy price. Then I discovered the TopShop dupes – but by then – yes I’m tardy – they had sold out on TopShop.com. Fortunately Nordstrom also stock TopShop – though usually they are a little delayed with new stock – so lucky for me the Amy boots have just arrived on Nordstrom and they are on their way to me! Nordstrom offer international shipping too so if you are desperate to find them outside the US then check them out here!
Here are a couple of outfits from the week – plus our Halloween costumes from the party at the weekend. It’s actually taken me till now to recover! I absolutely loved dressing up – I even think Dave is starting to enjoy it more each year!
Jeans – TopShop // Shirt – Mango // Shoes – Vince Nina
