MMM {weekend} Twelve days of party feet with Next

As my bio suggests, I quite *like* shoes.

Over the years I have amassed quite a special collection – the leopard print Jimmy Choos I wore to my wedding that one day will be Lila’s, the cork Louboutins that meant rent went on the credit card. I’ve even kept my 8-hole DM’s (with the rainbow stitching) bought with money earned babysitting every weekend aged 16.

So yes, I love shoes.

I also love the fact that the British high street offers some of the very best in fashionable, stylish footwear choices out there, meaning you really don’t need to spend a fortune on your feet.

One place in particular kept cropping up as I admired the shoes of fashionable friends – and that was Next. Once the preserve of sensible suits for work, it’s gradually become a destination for the style conscious – with cool little picks that would surprise anyone.

After seeing one particular pair crop up everywhere, I had a little look online myself and was actually spoilt for choice. And yes, I was surprised.

So here – in conjunction with Next – I have come up with twelve days of party feet to showcase their party wear collection.

Because if now isn’t the season to treat yourself to a couple of new pairs of going-out shoes, I’m not sure when is.

And no, they’re not all heels.


Silver D'Orsay pointed flats

Silver Pointed Loafers worn for Sunday lunch with the in-laws
Mono Spot Yellow Sandals worn out with the girls
Star Dorsay Point worn to an afternoon-to-evening tea with friends


Black High Front Block Sandals worn on my trip to Vienna
Metallic Block Heel Mary Janes worn to dinner with my husband
Ghilly Sandals worn to a festive dinner event
Silver High Vamp Sandals worn to a friend’s dinner party
Black V-Cut Shoe Boots (feather gilet here) worn to a birthday drinks


Navy Jewelled Bow Shoes worn to my daughter’s nativity
Leopard Scatter Jewel Loafers worn to a work meeting


Navy Jewelled Bow Loafers (same pair twice, but I think these are perfect at-home-over-Christmas flats!)



Thanks to NEXT for their help with this feature.


Have a lovely weekend everyone xx

    And can I ask where the jumper you’re wearing under the red coat is from? Thanks!

      Hi Maretta! It’s from Zara – they have them in a few colours x

    You look amazing in all of the pics but I must say I adore your hair in shot one! Just had my hair cut to a similar length as yours. How do you style it? x

      Aaah thank you Nicole! It varies – if I am in a wavy mood I wash it, add some serum (I like Moroccan oil), leave it to air dry and add a bit of Bumble and Bumble Sumo cream once it’s dry to define the wave. I have had quite a few requests for a hair post so will definitely put one up in the new year! x
