Walking Glitterball Tall

This pair of Kurt Geiger Snakeskin Salem boots (see previous Geiger Counter post for more details) are fantastically appropriate footwear for unpredictable Spring weather (if I’m allowed to call it Spring yet?!).
The perfect foil to any unexpected shower, these fakey snakey bikers look funky and fresh with any outfit – and give my smart pink 3/4 length Karen Millen coat a suitably subversive and casual twist.
I live on the South coast where it’s invariably brisk and brrreeezy, so along with the rest of Brighton I’m still wearing my winter woollies (which maybe answers my Spring question above!).
Today’s long, silver-grey glitterball-style sequinned jumper is by Fenn Wright Manson. Its delicate colour and scalloped edges remind me of oysters – and lovely lady parts, which is perhaps why subconsciously I find it so appealing! It’s lovely and long and wonderfully warm, and it belts up beautifully. Plus, when the light shines on the sequins I become my own little glitter ball – which the kids just love! I’m not one for muted colours, but this textured top magically lifts my spirits every time I put it on.
Unable to avoid my favoured colour-clash fashion entirely, however, I’m wearing these KG snakeskin boots, FWM silver-sequinned jumper and KM pink coat combination with an flippy orange dress from Dorothy Perkins.
Thus attired, I am ready and prepared for any meteorological eventuality, and fashion-forward whatever the weather!

Today’s school-run shoes are a departure from my usual brightly coloured footwear, being as they are a pair of nude Carvela heels from the Kurt Geiger store in Brighton.
They incorporate hidden platforms under the balls of the feet, which make walking more pleasant. But I’d be kidding if I said they were my most comfortable shoes, as their rounded fronts make them serious toe squeezers!
I’ve also noticed that being both nude and patent they mark extremely easily.
So all in all, these are neither my most practical or comfortable heels, but they’re rather pretty none the less – although perhaps a bit too safe and inoffensive for my liking, which is why I like to pair them with my usual bright and questionable clothes, just to shake it up a bit!
And since nude heels make my legs look endless, wearing tasteful and unadventurous footwear is a sacrifice I’m willing to make – for once!

Today’s school run shoes are these fakey snakey Salem boots from Kurt Geiger – the first KG footwear you’ll see on here, but certainly not the last!
From the Kurt Geiger pre-Christmas sale, they’re fast becoming a firm favourite. I think they ROCK (in my usual so-bad-they’re-good questionable-taste way), but would perhaps have preferred them in a cowboy boot shaped style, just to increase the doubt-factor!
