My new love

They arrived yesterday and I have not taken my eyes off them. They are the most comfortable sneakers I have ever owned – no joke. At just $95 they cannot be beaten for urban style, comfort and cool factor. My Husband even joked that I was dressed ‘Portobello circa ’91’, back when we were the cool kids on the block, living in our Ledbury Road bedsit. I love them. Meet my Nike Air Force 1s – you’ll be seeing a lot of them.

DSC_0326I bought the US 8.5 which is my normal size and they fit perfectly.

For the ultimate 90’s Notting Hill look I donned my camo trousers and Khaki jumper. I wore a very similar outfit for carnival in 1991. I can’t wait till it’s light enough to photograph outside again, my mirror is constantly under siege from my children’s handprints!

Off out tonight with a dear friend who I used to work with in my corporate days – I can’t wait for a good natter over some good food and wine. It also gives me an opportunity to change clothes again today instead of slipping into my cashmere onesie (now reduced further in the sale) after the gym 🙂 My poor daughter was mortified yesterday when I picked her up from school wearing it!
