Helloooooo co-ordination, so nice to meet you. Very rarely am I this co-ordinated, but when the lovely girls at Primark offered to send me these matching shoes and clutch I couldn't resist. When they arrived at my office the girls cood, and rightly so. The gorgeous suede with the ever-so autumnal colour combination of burgundy and burnt orange - these bad boys are going to be firm favourites in my wardrobe this autumn. And seeing as we're having such a shocking summer, I can wear them now, yay! Oh, and did I mention the clutch is a budget-busting £5 and the shoes a cool £18. I know, it would be rude not to, right?
I wore this outfit for my dinner date with the Bot - we had the most incredible food at Maze, one of Gordon Ramsey's restaurants. We ate the most delicious pork belly, duck, fish and more on the tasting menu. I really loved the vibe of the restaurant; not at all stuffy and the waiters were lovely. I'd bought a couple of vouchers via Travelzoo (they have some fab holiday bargains, but sometimes have restaurant deals) while the Bot was in hospital in April so it was great to finally use them and treat ourselves.
Can I also just say how much i'm loving the midi length skirts that are everywhere at the mo. It's such a flattering look, especially if you're a classic pear-shape like me; showing off the waist while ever-so-kindly gliding over the hips, allowing the eye to focus on the ankle. And don't think this is just a look for those tall kids. I'm 5"3, so trust me; it works on us little folk too.
