Welcome to SHOETOBER (shoe #giveaway)


Welcome to SHOETOBER people, the month that i am officially making all about shoes!
As you all already know i love shoes of all shapes and styles, from flats to sky scrapper heels. Gimme a pretty shoe and i will be your BFF forever.
So this month I have joined up with 4 fantastic Shoe specialists to bring you an amazing shoe giveaway for each week of October  Shoetober.

Are you ready fellow shoe lovers?
 So before i go on to today's Shoe Love, i just wanted to talk briefly about this coat.
After asking the question of pretty peachy pink or camel on Instagram (here) & on twitter here, the lovely social people answered. Lots of people said go for the pink, some said the camel. My heart said pink and fluffy, my sensible head said sensible camel.
Completely confused I turned to my dear hubby and with very good rationale we came to the conclusion that camel colour would be more practical for me and my wardrobe (i wear a lot of reds! which just wouldn't go with the peach)
I'm still totally longing for the coral peachy pink fluffy coat (it was SO pretty!!) but i am super pleased with my new camel coat also. The quality is fantastic and the fit is lovely. I can see me and this coat having a winter long love affair.... (unless i convince my hubby to buy me the pink peachy one too, then i may have to have the occasional fling with it ;)

Today i opted for a little Parisan- esque chic. Breton top, simple black skirt and some tan accessories in the shape of a great (rather large) bag and what shall be known from now on as the most-comfy-loafers-ever-ever (also known as The Neo Tan Leather Loafer from the lovely people at  Lotus Shoes , i just can't resist any shoe with my son's name in it!! can you blame me?)
before i move on to the shoe thing, 'cos it is Shoetober, I have to mention my problem with skater skirts. Does anyone else like the style of them, but dislike wearing them?  I don't know, i just feel like i could potentially expose myself at any point in it, bend over, gust of wind and Bam! Some innocent passer by gets an eye full.. I feel a little bit of a liability in a skater style skirt.. Anyone else? Just me maybe?




 Oh these shoes... they are exactly what i wanted from a tan loafer. I've worn them so much already and i am looking forward to wearing them with tights and dresses through the winter also. They are just great for throwing on for the school run,/shopping/lunch out or anything else where you just want a smart comfy shoe. Do you remember in the summer where i got a nasty infection from wearing in some new shoes? Since then my poor tootsies have been rather delicate when it comes to wearing in shoes and i have to wear new shoes in for short periods at a time, well prepared with plasters and spare shoes at all times.
Well Not with these loafers! uh -uh!! Lotus Shoes have made such a soft comfy shoe that even my delicate feet can wear them all day without hurting. And let me tell you, my tootsies are pleased as punch with this!
Want to win a pair of Lotus shoes like these or even a pair of your choice? Well my friends, you are in luck!


 Top & Camel boyfriend coat: Tesco (breton top from the girls section!)
Skirt: New Look
Bag: New Look via Asos



So with these lovely loafers in mind i now present the first giveaway of Shoetober to you!

  26. Well hello lovely lady! Please forgive my silence lately; I've just been so out of sorts since returning from Europe. Vacations tend to throw me off :) I am just amazed that every time I see you, you're looking so incredibly chic, and stylish, and just so polished. Really, really gorgeous. (Also, I think you made the right choice with the coat, but I know if you wind up buying the pink one you'll pull it off beautifully, too!)

    Now, on to this fabulous giveaway. I really really (reallllllly) would love to win this one because I just popped over to their site and found the boots I've been searching for for *years* And they are these beauties: http://www.lotusshoes.co.uk/boots-c3/lotus-blizzard-burnished-tan-leather-knee-high-boots-p5167. The color is just right, and I mean, boots. I'm head over heels for them (no pun intended)!
