Passion 4 Fashion Linkup

I like to take inspiration from pretty much anywhere and everywhere. I can be out shopping and see someone in a cute outfit and make a mental note of it, it can be a magazine or a fellow blogger, and sometimes its tv. I have major netflix marathons, what can i say i like a little tv action on in the background whilst i work, and a little late to the party i have been watching Gossip Girl (currently on series 4 and completely addicted by the way..) and the outfits...oh the outfits! But unfortunately my life doesn't call for many outings in glam gowns and to be dripping in jewels, more's a pity, haha, but sometimes its taking inspiration and making it work for you and your life. Serena and Vanessa, on separate occasions, wore a gorgeous neon lime colour that just looked so striking. I was instantly drawn to the bright summery colour and decided on a contrast with the black. 

The shoes have been on my want list since the #100daysnospend started back in January, proving that both patience and the law of attraction works. Want something bad enough and it will become yours. 
House of Fraser kindly let me choose a pair of shoes and i was spoilt for choice with their amazing ladies shoe selection, all my favourite brands in one place... thats my idea of mecca;) So i went for the pair i had lusted after for so so long. The two part shoe is hot hot hot this season, whether that be in flat form or heels. And these are ticking all the right boxes for me!

Do you own any two part shoes? Flat or feels?



  1. Rachel I'm totally with you on the neon lime with black (must revisit that look myself) - this really, really suits you sweetie. Plus I love your hair (is it braided at the side?) and the shoes are OMG gorgeous. Isn't it nice to bare a bit of ski in this warmer weather...?!!!!

    Have a fab weekend hun, thanks for hosting :)

    1. A bit of SKIN, not ski. We're not skiing in this weather ;)

  2. I love your bright, summery look. As for shoes... I go for plain, simple, flat... Sounds boring, but I walk a lot, and my feet don't like heels (however much I would like to wear them). Have a nice weekend!

  3. I'm a big fan of lime with black and blue this look on you, really suits you!
