Looks like Topshop are at it again: creating amazing items of footwear and clothing which are proving almost irresistible to a certain shoe blogger.
If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that “irresistible” isn’t a word I often associate with flat shoes. I’ve actually found quite a few pairs to covet lately, though, and pointed slingbacks seem to be the common theme! I really like the elegant shape of this style of shoe, and think it has a real “Audrey Hepburn would wear this” quality to it, which is always a good thing as far as I’m concerned. These slingbacks are particularly attractive to me because of the fresh, mint colour – it’s still a very fashionable shade this summer, and it has a very fresh feel to it, which will work really well with all of those floral prints and pastel shades that are around right now.

I didn’t have to look too far to find some outfit inspiration for these shoes: this gingham skirt is also new in at Topshop, and if I hadn’t already sent a chunk of money their way this week, it would have definitely gone into my basket. As it is, it may not be in my ACTUAL closet (Er, yet…) but it IS in my virtual closet, teaming up with the mint slingbacks to create this outfit:

Nothing says “picnic” like gingham print, and with this outfit I was inspired by the kind of thing a young Brigitte Bardot might have worn on a hot summer’s day. All it needs is a tousled updo and some smoky eyeliner for full effect: oh, and maybe a picnic basket – ideally containing some strawberries and champagne!
