Military Blues

20120305-162841.jpg

This is one of my favourite coats: a Karen Millen cobalt blue military 3/4 length, with twenty shiny black silver-surround buttons paired down the front.
I always get really positive comments on it, which is great, especially since it’s lost colour every time I’ve had it dry cleaned, so I don’t feel it’s quite as smart and crisp as it once was.
It’s still a stunning military-style coat though, despite the fact it’s had a helluva lot of *general* use (see what I did there?), kiddie muck on its cuffs and baby snot on its shoulders!
I’m wearing it with my chunky brown G-Star Raw biker-jackboots (more on these later)…

Leopardprint Love

20120302-114519.jpg

Friday’s school-run shoes are simply outstanding – to my mind at least!
Dizzily high platform heels with leopard-print, furry ponyskin (or some such), they’re made by Deena & Ozzy and were bought in the Urban Outfitters pre-Christmas sale. For me it was love at first sight.
Surprisingly, despite their height, they are both comfortable and easy to walk in, presumably because of the chunky rather than stiletto heel, and of course the luxurious cushiness of the platforms. Which makes them the most perfect, fantastically funky footwear for the school-run. Who’d’a thunk it, eh?!


Möbius Moves

Today’s school-run shoes: my United Nude brown leather Step Möbius Hi boots from a few years back. They’re a bit big for me (that’s what happens when you buy things in online sales), but at least it means I can wear my thick hiking socks inside them, and my toes are stylish and TOASTY! 🙂
