What: Dorothy Perkins nude peep toes
When: Sunday, May 29th, 2011
Where: Some last minute holiday shopping
With: Red jeans (J Brand, c/o Shopbop), stripey sweater (H&M), blazer (New Look kids department); Classic Q Little Ukita satchel (Marc By Marc Jacobs c/o Shopbop)
Today’s a public holiday here in the UK (I know, another one!) so I hadn’t actually intended to put up any posts, but since I have so much ground to make up with the Shoe Challenge, I figured I’d just sneak on these photos from yesterday, so I can head off on holiday safe in the knowledge that another pair of shoes have been saved!
These shoes are far from the most exciting pair I could have chosen for a last-minute save, because they’re just one of my many pairs of nude(ish) peep toes, but this outfit was really all about the jeans:
These jeans are a bit of a departure for me, and a little more “fashiony” than my usual style, but I’d wanted a pair of red jeans for a while, so when I saw these at Shopbop I decided to use some of my store credit to grab a pair. And then I decided to wear them with stripes, because, well, that’s what I do.
I’m really liking the trend for brightly coloured denim right now: in fact, I’m tempted to get some of the pastel colours that are out right now, just in case the weather declines to ever warm up again. After the gorgeous April we had, we’ve had non-stop wind and rain for May, so I figure pastel coloured jeans could be a good solution – summery, but still warm. (I’m not really complaining about the weather, though – we had more sun in April than we normally have all year, so we didn’t do too badly!)

As those of you who read my personal blog might know, my hair is currently trying to kill me. This was the latest step of its dastardly plan. Further Shoe Challenge posts will depend on whether I manage to survive its attacks…
