Coral stripes...

It is always lovely when you spot a gorgeous pair of shoes that look cute, give you some height whilst still being comfortable and only cost £5. It sounds like I am talking about the impossible, but I found them in New Look the other week. I am always really impressed with New Look shoes and I love these but I cannot work out a way to tie them so that they stay on my feet without feeling like they are going to fall off...any ideas?

Dress: H&M, bandeau top: H&M, shoes: New Look, necklace: charity shop
I love this H&;M dress and it has been featured on here before but I have always found it difficult to know what to wear underneath it as the drapery is lovely (and it reminds me of the drapery on the East pediment from the Acropolis!) but far too low cut to be decent. I bought a pack of two bandeau tops in black and white from H&M a while ago and they have proven themselves invaluable when tops or dresses are more revealing than you might like, I really cannot recommend them enough! 



I was really impressed with the colour match with the dress and the shoes, especially as they were from different stores. I normally find it impossible to match things but these shoes seem to have ticked that box too!
How cute are the little bows?!
Coral has to be one of my favourite colours, it works whatever the season and looks particularly good in the sunshine... so this dress is definitely one of the cheeriest items in my wardrobe!

Do you find it difficult to find matching accessories? What colour is your favourite?

How I love New Look shoe sales :D Looking at them I'd say you probably had the way to tie them but I'm not sure, someone else could have a better way.
My favourite colour is pink :) But when do you see me matching? I'm the crazy pattern lady.
Your shoes and dress look really nice together, it's a good colour.

I lovr those shoes! I hate buying shoes, I have such wide feet, nothing ever fits boohoo.
Maybe you could sew one of those little popper clips onto the strap? you could clip it in place and then tie it up x

aww those shoes are dead cute! so impressed with new look shoes right now. their sizing is weird though, maybe some insoles would help? lol idk but they're nice anyways :) xx

I'm a recent convert to bandeaus, too, although it is ingrained in my to be wary of anything without straps - which is rather silly, considering the entire point of such things is to release us from the strap problem! I really love the colours of this outfit, the dress is killer!

Wish I could assist with the shoes, but they already look perfect from here.
