Boden Florence Flats | The Perfect (Wearable) Statement Shoe
Shoes are our friends - even if I am not feeling that great, I can almost always fit into my shoes! Oh, wonderful, loyal companions that they are.
As you know, I'm all about wearable trends and style. I love seeing what's on the catwalks and the fashion radar, but what I also love is taking elements and fitting them with my own style. The lace up flats trend has been a big one for a while now, but it's not hard to see why. Heels are beautiful, powerful, feminine and magical, but for all their majesty, they aren't always the most comfortable or practical of options!
BUT, a statement shoe like the Boden Florence Flat is totally wearable for anyone - with all the style and femininity of heels, but zero pain! Yes, they beautifully capture a massive trend, but they certainly aren't faddy and they can totally make an outfit and have anyone feeling fab. And, they do that even more so at the moment, as, they're currently on sale! Check sizes and styles here.
I know I'm not alone with those times when I don't know what to wear (too much or too little choice?), or I am just having one of those days where my body doesn't seem to be feeling right in my clothes. It's at these times that I want to retreat back to a tried and tested model: All black everything. But, what always makes me feel better, more put together and adds a spring to my step is just adding a simple but effective touch - a statement shoe. The perfect distraction!
As much as I do love a bold block colour, especially red, my all time favourite is Animal print, which I love for its versatility and because it really never goes out of style. Reflections of nature are always the most beautiful prints and that's why they stand the test of time.
I think there is something so effortlessly stylish about a pop of print. And, yes you can (and should) wear animal print after the age of 30. Confused? Read this article and then ignore it and get your animal print on with joyful abandon!
To whomever wrote that article, you've inspired a movement, so thank you! Yes, I'm over 30, I love animal print and, quite frankly, #iwillwearwhatilike!
And, boy do I like these shoes!
