A couple of days ago, I had to attend a training day in Central London.
I was very excited both by the prospect of a great training (of course!) AND the opportunity to work from the City to i) indulge my Starbucks addiction, ii) wear a casual outfit and iii) read Metro on the tube. (I want to add that taking the Tube on one of the hottest days so far was probably not a great experience courtesy of the overcrowded wagons but hey ho!).
Now, there is one thing I don’t like quite as much when working in the City: being isolated from my trusted car and by car I mean its boot, packed with shoes.
As you all know by now, I drive in my Uggs (winter) and flats (summer) for comfort and then pick up the right (high heeled) pair later, to match my humeur du jour.
The only problem with a meeting in the City? I have to wear straight away THE right pair of shoes. So what to wear that is flat, springy and work appropriate?
Nothing in my wardrobe apparently. Which is bad. As failing to pick a shoe equates to failing to pick up outfit.
After a way too long ponderation on the right pair of shoes (and outfit), I decided to go with my newAsh suede boots (very thankful that I gave in to temptation and bought them last week!).
Then, once at the training and whilst having a chat with a couple of friends at the coffee break (what I really should say is Cake break), I couldn’t help but notice the super cute “pocahontas” inspired flats both of them were wearing. This observation triggered a soul searching question…why didn’t I invest on such a timeless, super comfy yet elegant shoe yet?
The answer: my big feet. The word boat comes to mind…No further comment.
Anyway. I can’t wear these shoes but it doesn’t mean that I can’t till admire them on others who have better fitted feet (read smaller feet).
So I am giving you my friend H’s gorgeous shoes… AND cute little feet
