seeing red!

These past few weeks I have gone from zero colour in my wardrobe to no less than three new red dresses.....even a touch of pink is in on the colour action! After a couple of dodgy weather days over the weekend I've turned my attentions to the looming transitional change in the forecast and what I might buy to bring a bit of life to the more muted colours I usually wear come A/W. For me the quickest way of uplifting your wardrobe is new shoes....so it's may not come as that much of a surprise that I'm looking at red trainers. As always I've turned to Pinterest for a bit of inspo!

Rather handily Grazia magazine currently have a 25% off discount! There is a voucher in the magazine....however I took a chance and used the code GRAZIA25 online.....and it worked! Get shopping! These are the styles that made my shortlist......I've specifically plumped for red suede!

First up is the classic Adidas Stan Smith......I would infact heed the advice of my lovely mate @susiesoso and change the laces on these from red to white. I would have loved the red and white Gazelles....but sadly I had a bad experience with the fit of some navy ones last year....at least with the Stan's I know they are comfy!

The husband has just got a pair of these in black suede....so I'm not sure it would be such a great idea for us to have matching trainers so these are out of the equation as much as I love them!

I have actually gone with my signature trainer but gone for something different to my usual chuck low style and plumped for these gorgeous Converse One Star's. Fingers crossed they will arrive tomorrow.....judging by the weather forecast I could well be road-testing them over the weekend! ;0)

I now have a couple of A/W purchases under my belt....and there are a few other bits on my radar that I will share with you next time!

Back soon! 


  1. Those Converse are the perfect touch of red! I have a pair of superstars in my basket that I keep havering over. I must take the plunge! And I have the husband scouring Gap stores on his travels for that horse print tank - i know I'm at risk of doing a proper Single White Female on you, but I bloody love it! xx

    1. Yep....I think the red will be fab for jazzing up some of my A/W wardrobe Becky....there is bound to be lots of black and grey purchases so a punch of colour is much needed!
      I love that Gap top....I went into my local store and tried it but put it back thinking summer is nearly over but I couldn't get it out of head so I hot-footed back the next day to get it! So glad I did!!

  2. I love the Gap tank too - no wonder you hot footed back for it! And I'm loving all the touches of red - it's your colour! Thanks for the mention! x
