Topshop ‘Glory’, £58
Every season, Topshop creates a perfectly shaped pump, which they then proceed to taunt me with by releasing it in every colour imaginable. Last season it was the ‘Gwenda‘; this season it’s the turn of ‘Glory’, which, to be completely honest, looks just like ‘Gwenda’, only under a different name.
These shoes are (so far) available in three colours: black, white and this lovely checked mint pattern. The mint version is, naturally, my favourite of the three, and I think it would be a wonderful choice for springtime, with its muted colours, and a pattern which is interesting without being overwhelming. They have a lovely, fresh feel about them, which inspired me to create an equally fresh, spring-like outfit to wear with them:
What to wear with Topshop ‘Glory’ pumps:
The combination of green and yellow can seem a bit “daffodil-like” at first (Although what could be appropriate for spring than daffodils, I ask you?), but I wore these two shades together a few times last year, and I think that as long as you opt for the paler, pastel versions of the colours, it can work really well. With this outfit, I’ve also broken up the effect slightly with the white jeans, which are a summer staple for many of us (And which I’m on an apparently ceaseless search for, as the perfect white jeans are even harder to find than the perfect blue ones!). As I’m fond of saying, however, most pastels will work well with most other pastels, as well as with block colours like black, white and navy, so I don’t think these shoes would be difficult to style, even if you don’t want to go for the “human flower” effect!
