Leopard print loafers...

 It has been a while since I last wore this dress, it is too nice to wear for everyday really but I wore it out for a meal with my best friend and her fiancĂ© (I still haven't got used to saying that!) to celebrate my recent promotion. You may have seen my excitement over on Twitter last Monday and honestly I am beyond pleased, I have only been at my job for 5 months so to have that kind of recognition is a really big deal for me, especially as I worry so much! I am now a marketing executive (!!) and one step closer to ruling the world...

Dress: Motel, necklace: Accessorize,  flat shoes: Clarks c/o Spartoo
 I love this dress as it is so low maintenance and requires very little embellishment, the gorgeous jewel colour speaks for itself, but this brown stone necklace helped to pick up the colour of the shoes...

I LOVE the waistline detail on this dress!
And what beautiful shoes they are! I think every blogger and their dog has these leopard print loafers but after I unwrapped them, I could definitely see why. They are ridiculously comfy and look way more expensive than the price suggests, especially when you know that they are designed to last. Recently I have found that my feet simply cannot cope with ill-fitting shoes and I'm glad that brands like Clarks are making more fashionable footwear than I remember from school! 

Please ignore my legs, my mosquito bites from holiday still haven't healed, stupid diabetes!
For someone who first wore leopard print just over a year ago, I am amassing quite a collection,  I was always put off by the potential tackiness of leopard print but I guess never say never!

What have you been celebrating recently? Are you a fan of leopard print?

P.S. This post was done in collaboration with Spartoo

Congrats on the promotion :) first cocktail on me when I see you next!
I lvoe this dress on you, such a lovely shape and it's nice to have sleeves so you don't need a cardi if it gets chilly.
I'm a big leopard fan, the more the better! I like that it's a bit tacky... I blame the manics for my leopard love xx

Congratulations! That's an amazing success. :) The dress is beautiful. Turqoise is my favourite colour and I think goes so well with brown and earth tones to match.

Congrats on the promotion! Amazing news. Love that dress. The sitting is perfect. And I love those flats! I need them. I think I'm the only person without a pair like that.

Looking rather fabulous darling, LOVe the shoes, I opted for the safer ballet flat version of these shoes, they are just so easy wear, and I'm not sure I'm ever going to be able to wear anything less than Clarks these days!

Once more, many many congratulations on the promotion. I look forward to living in a world ruled by someone as fabulous as you!
