Current Shoe Loves

Been loving these 3 pairs of shoes these past few weeks, all very different, but thought I’d share my latest obsessions with you today!  Hope you enjoy :*

Adidas Originals Superstar Shoes

Sooo classic!  Definitely a bit late to this trend but have loved them for years.  Pretty much been obsessed since Run DMC’s video for Walk this Way.  I mean we all know them from that, don’t we?  80’s hollaaah!  Anyway, I picked these up last Christmas in Office in Dublin for €90.  I wouldn’t usually spend so much on a pair of trainers but you can only really get the originals of these … or it just wouldn’t be the same.  They are so comfortable and go with every outfit.  Love the vibes they add to any look.  Got them in classic core white with black, the adidas logo at the back is in black with white, logo at the front is black with gold, and it has ‘superstar’ written on the sides in beautiful gold lettering.  The classic black stripes on the sides and the shell pattern on the front of the shoe are definitely what makes them so recognisable.  Love these so much and think they would be a great staple for anyone’s style!  However … living in the country in Ireland it is so hard to keep white trainers white!

White ‘Spice Girl’ Platforms

These are just so fun.  I picked them up a few weeks ago in Primark / Penneys in Limerick City for only €9, so worth it.  Been obsessed with platforms ever since the Spice Girls (namely Baby Spice) of course but think the trend is coming back recently as I’ve seen the style a lot on social media.  I love how simple these are, just plain white (again.. so hard to keep clean), and are quite high for a platform so may not be an everyday look for everyone, however I still wear them most days!  Surprisingly comfortable and easy to walk in, I love the extra height they give because I cannot wear heels to save my life.  They make my legs look longer and more toned than they actually are which is great.  Love wearing these with black leggings and a black hoody.  Keepin’ it monotonal y’know.

Blue Velvet & Black Platforms

These are so beautiful I cannot believe they were only €1 in Primark / Penneys in Limerick City.  Could not leave the shop without getting these, such a great price!  Love the blue velvet which is so different and adds an interesting to touch to any outfit.  They are much shorter than the white platforms which makes them more wearable.  I love the black and blue contrast as well which you don’t see that often.  I love wearing these with an all black outfit and a dark blue denim jacket.  Retrooo Viiibes!

Hope you liked this post and got a bit of an insight to my shoe style lately, maybe it’ll gave you some inspiration!  See you next week for another post,

The New Patent Shoes I have fallen in love with…

The majority of the shoes I own are Doc Martens…and there is a very specific reason why I always come back to this brand. Although they are an investment, being at a higher price point than a lot of other shoes, the quality beats all. A few years ago I was rooting through some of my mum’s old stuff and found these brown Doc Marten boots still in perfect condition. I fell in love.. and after some discussion they became mine for the foreseeable future. I have worn these shoes for the last 2 or so years every day. Day-to-day wear, festivals, nights out, they were perfect for everything! These shoes were about 30 years old and my mum wore them for a very long time before I even existed. If you take care of them, these shoes can last forever, and even passed down through generations!

So, having multiple boots in my collection I was on the search for something a bit more classy, plain… but can add a lot to your outfit. It took me a long time to decide but I found these babies. They are the Women’s Re-Invented 1461 Black Patent Leather Shoes.

Priced at €100, first and foremost they are so comfortable. The classic yellow thread running along the sole of the shoe adds the vintage feel and makes them instantly recognisable as Doc Martens. They have a 3-eyelet lace which makes them look more petite, something I love. The patent leather makes them super easy to clean and sometimes I think that I get a little bit paranoid about them being dirty. Just because they are so shiny and glossy it feels wrong! I’ve never felt like that about any other shoe…

Because they are so simple, they go with any outfit, of any colour, tights or no tights, whatever you feel in the mood for, they just work! I think me and these shoes are going to have a lovely relationship in the future. My babies, my loves, my shoesies.

Thanks for taking the time out of your day to read this,

Love and Light,
