Burgundy jeans and (another) striped tee...

Guess what? It's another burgundy jeans/striped t-shirt combination! There's something about burgundy and navy together which I love and when these beautiful shoes arrived, I knew that I would be pairing them with these jeans, I can't be the only one who plans an outfit around a pair of shoes right?! I love wearing sandals with jeans and trousers as you can show off your new shoes whilst avoiding that awkward 'bare legs at work' scenario. I never feel comfortable with bare legs unless I have a midi dress on, it just feels too exposed otherwise!

Cardigan: Dorothy Perkins, top:H&M, jeans: Miss Selfridge, shoes: Clarks sandals c/o Spartoo
 I bought this stripy top from H&M a few months ago and it has been a much needed addition to my work wardrobe. I love the longer length and  the fact that it is sleeveless and as I already had the white version, I knew that it would get a lot of wear as the weather warmed up... Paired with this draped cardigan from Dorothy Perkins, it is the perfect top for work!


 You all know how much I love Clarks shoes and despite my best efforts, the lure of these navy suede beauties left me powerless to resist . I didn't quite make it through the whole day with them but I think this is mainly due to the fact I haven't worn heels in ages,rather than the shoes being uncomfortable.  I will just have to break them in slowly I think...


Any tips for breaking in my new heels?

I'd sometimes break heels in with a pair of thick socks on - usually around the house.

It's a winning combo!! Those shoes (and your necklace) are really nice. Love the colour and the heel height is perfect.

I don't do bare legs either, got about three drawers of tights. I wear my heels around the house with some socks or pop to the shops in them xx

I am addicted to stripes at the moment too :) Those shoes are so cute but I hate wearing them in, I second the thick socks around the house!

I definitely plan outfits around shoes too! ;) I need more burgundy in my life I think, and it looks so beautiful with navy & the stripes too.

I love coloured jeans. You're wearing your so well. I need to dig out some of mine.

those shoes are gorgeous, I'll be delighted when I can wear heels again!

Those shoes are stunning! And you cannot go wrong with a striped tee imo, so wear away!

Hey! Nothing wrong with a striped shirt! I love a striped tee! I love the look of your necklace too, does it have a bug in it?

love the shoes :) i find that stretching new shoes by pulling at them can help, just be careful not to break them! x
