Shoes: Ben Sherman @ Solestruck
Belt: Dorothy Perkins
This Jeanswest cardigan has been languishing in my wardrobe for at least a month now – I’ve barely worn it twice.
I (impulse!) bought it because I was on the hunt for a new green cardigan, and I liked the whole Town & Country feel of the cable knit. I pictured it with jeans and knee high brown boots, a woolly scarf and a snuggly beanie. But it just didn’t seem to work right on me.
I think I’ve cracked it though.
I particularly like wearing it with my bluebirds of happiness; which I inherited from my Mum when I was a little girl and have mercifully never lost – I need all the help I can get in the happiness stakes at the moment, and these always give me a little smile.
Another thing that’s giving me a smile is my new pair of Ben Sherman shoes!
The wonderful Danielle at SoleStruck sent these to me and I’m thoroughly in love. They’re so on trend at the moment, with the different leathers, the tweed detailing, and even a tiny little tassel that ornaments the side of the heel.
They’re really comfortable – the wedge heel is genius – and though I had a bit of a fit issue (alas, they were a size too big) Danielle offered some really good advice (gel innersoles and heel grips) that has enabled me to wear them. She also offered a different pair of shoes, but they didn’t have these in my size, and I couldn’t part with them 😉
I was really impressed with the service at SoleStruck – shipping was fast and easy – and YES! They ship Internationally! (Boo to you, Zappo’s!) They even ship for free if your order tops $199. They also offer no problem returns, have an easy to navigate site with lots of different pics and angles and have some of my favourite shoe brands (Irregular Choice, Sugar, Rocket Dog, Sam Edelman, Camper). I’ve already picked out my next pair, now to find the rest of the $199….
