M&S have done some great shoes recently and I have seen a couple of very covetable pairs on blogs and being as I am always up for a bit of Shoe Porn, whether High End or High Street, that was where the cursor took me first. There wasn't really much on this occasion that grabbed me, but then I saw a pair of flatforms. Now flatforms are a type of footwear which speaks for its self, as in they are flat but have a platform, if that makes sense, and a certain daughter of mine is particularly enamoured with this kind of footwear at present, so I had never dreamed that such a style would be leaping into my shopping basket but with the wearing of heels becoming increasing difficult, they seemed like the perfect solution to wanting a bit of height during the day. Ballet flats may be chic with your jeans and mac but come summer its all about the sandal for me and to have a pair that adds an inch or two without making me look like I have the calves of a Russian weight lifter has to tick my box, not to mention that the black ones are reduced to £15!
Limited Collection at M&S £15 in black.
Then with summer on my mind, I had a browse through the swimwear as I have officially decided it is high time I introduced more one pieces into my swimwear collection in the absence of an Elle McPherson bikini bod and naturally a striped bandeau style caught my eye. Now you don't need to be a stylist to know that an apple body shape like myself should never wear a stripey swimsuit and if you came to me for style advice, as many of you have, I would not be pointing you in the direction of this candy coloured beauty, but you know I am a sucker for stripes and the cut out detail on the back is so cute, disregarding any weirdo tan lines you may get whilst sunning yourself in it, but what the heck, it will probably be returned but it does have body shaper tummy control so that will help right?
Swimsuit was £29.50 now £17.
I will share them with you when they arrive but will not be modelling the swimsuit obviously, but meanwhile if you are looking to grab some pieces for your holiday wardrobe at bargain prices there is a nice selection of beachwear.
