Back to the Present

 With my head mostly in the past like in my last post, i thought it was time i brought myself to the present and dabbled with a couple of new pieces.

 I have been umm-ing and ahh-ing over some sneaker-wedges for a while now. Are they fugly or fabulous? What will i wear them with? Are they actually comfy? So when some lovely Tesco clubcard vouchers dropped through my door and they just so happened to have these grey sneaker-wedges on the shelves whilst doing my food shopping i decided to take the plunge and give this trend a go...

 And the verdict? Well, i kinda love them. They're comfy and kinda funky and easy to do the running around and chores in. They kinda made me feel a wee bit sporty and want to do star jumps and squats, but i refrained, you know, just in-case i pulled something... :-/
So what do you think of sneaker-wedges? Love or Loathe? (and dont worry i wont be defended if they aren't your cup of tea, i do believe they aren't for everyone)

 I also picked up this rather lovely orange knit, khaki skinnies and yellow bag. It was a good shopping day (not so much on the food front, it'll be beans on toast allll week,haha!) Thanks Tesco, every little does help! I am really in to orange right now, i've just picked up recently a bright orange dress too. Who'd have thought it... orange! I mean it's not a colour i normally gravitate towards (normal being red, navy or mustard!) but its fast becoming a current favourite.
 So i'm trying to think of ways to re mix these bad-boys to make it a worthy investment (£19 is a bargain investment even without vouchers dont you think!). Anyone have any ideas? I already i have a dress lined up for them next but feel i need some sneaker-wedge type inspiration. Anyone tried this or have you pinned any styles? I would love to see!

  1. Loving that outfit sis! Think I may invest in some of those khaki skinnies, they're right up my street! You look comfy but stylish - I like, I like a lot :)

    Will look out for remixes with the skinnies :)

  8. I think they look awesome on you! If my feet weren't so persnickety, I would give them a go.

    I especially love your orange sweater! The back detailing is so unexpected and I love it. I, too, have been gravitating to orange lately even though I've always disliked it in the past. Guess you can teach an old dog new tricks after all!

  11. I like them! The neutral color makes them much easier to remix. I really like them with the brightly-colored comfy sweater and trousers. Your yellow bag is adorable too!

  12. I thought I'd hate the sneaker wedges, but actually I don't! I think it's because these ones are a nice colour and not overly 'Sports-luxe' because I dislike that trend.

    LOVE the orange jumper, especially where it crosses over with the stripy top at the back. Nice nice nice xx

  18. I think those wedges have to be on the right person. I mean you definately pulled them off but I'm not sure I would! The yellow bag on the other hand is nice and something I would definately use. Tesco has some great bargains as do the other big name supermarkets.

  19. I have yet to try my own pair of sneaker wedges, but I think this simple pair looks amazing on yoU! So fun seeing you in a different than your norm outfit, you're too cute! I especially love them with those little polka dot socks! Hope you're having a great start to your week!

  20. Hello, Darling Rachel! Thank you for your sweet comment on my post today. I am about 13 weeks along and already sporting a bit of a bump. I've been sicker than sick, which is while I've been a bit MIA from the blogging world. Hoping the ickies fade very soon here! Anyway, I'm loving the bright hues in your look today. I believe Pantone is calling this color "Poppy Red" so you are very on-trend. :) Loving it paired with the vibrant yellow. Hope you are well, Lovely!!! ~Sarah

  24. Love the bright orange and yellow! Gets me even more in the mood for spring. I love the wedges, but I am a flats person through and through! I wish I could wear heels, but I just stumble around and then my feet hurt. On another note, thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting! Debbie @ ilovemylemonadelife.com
