Weathered leather shoes

blue inc retro trainers Recently Mr Style Eyes recieved some tan lace up trainers from Blue Inc. I am currently loving weathered leather for shoes and bags. These look great as they have a retro look about them and the leather looks slightly creased and battered. I am not usually a big fan of trainers, especially white ones and I don't think white trainers have any place in an outfit (for men or women) unless they are exercising. Even worse brand new shiny trainers, they just don't look right. These tan leather trainers are the perfect alternative and great for the summer as they go with so many light weight casual outfits.

That got me thinking about some weathered leather shoes or boots to go with my new white dress. I was also inspired by Style of a Fashionista's recent Old Boot post. I have a great big stack of accessories and a rail of clothes in my office/ spare room which I have been meaning to swap, sell, donate to charity for quite some time. For some reason I have procrastinated and much to Mr Style Eyes disgust they have been there for nearly a year. I keep taking stuff back out of the pile and putting it back into my wardrobe. The latest thing that has managed to sneak its way back into my wardrobe is a pair of old cowboy boots the didn't fit me for a while after having my second child but seem to fit again now, the funny things that pregnancy does to your body. They are not vintage but they are well loved and I have had to stop Mr Style Eyes polishing them up to make them look new again (he says you can tell a lot by peoples shoes!).

I was really excited to recieve a package from Brazil yesterday. It was two skirts, one tie dye, one dip dye, that I swapped on Posh Swaps what seems like forever ago. I already have some outfit ideas in mind and hope to post them soon.

Finally, congratulations to Jasmine from the Girl Under the Stairs who won the Yumi Birdcage Dress Giveaway and thanks to everyone who entered.

Hey! Your white dress is lovely. I hate myself coz I do not even own one and just can't seem to find the right one for myself. Thanks for visiting my blog :)

The boots shouldn't go. They are perfect with white dresses, as your outfit proves :)
