transitional treasures @shoeaholics!

Even though we are only just halfway through September there is no alternative but to look towards Autumn and get some of those transitional purchases in....as boy do we need them! At present we seem to be experience elements of all four seasons in one day. It looks as though sandals are wardrobe bound for the foreseeable.....but it's all good as I've a couple of new additions to see me through this treacherous spell. Kicking off with these fab Michael Kors Conrad sneakers....

Michael Kors Conrad Trainers
What I love about these are the fact that the stripes are silver and gold.....I'm still feel like a relative newbie to the mixing-metal gang and these trainers are just the perfect way to get over my matchy-matchy tendencies (I used to even try to match hardware on my jackets to my jewellery, bags, sunglasses....you name it!). These are already earning their pay-per-wear.....thanks to the relentless showers that have plagued us these past few weeks.

Now hands up who knew that Shoeaholics also do a great selection of ladies handbags too?! I'm rather smitten with this gorgeous Versace 1969 bag......the studs have stolen my heart!

What better time to start stocking up on the boot purchases as well.....you can't argue with a price tag of £69.99 for real suede boots with a whiff of the Marant about them can you?! Style and saving yourself a few bucks by buying now and stashing for a bit later......I can't wait to wear these with black skinnies and some chunky knits. In the meantime, it turns out that they also look ace with a maxi dress too!

These boots are superbly comfy thanks to their Ortholite insoles which are designed to retain 95% of their cushioning which is far superior to traditional insoles! The boots are also lined in the signature Ted Baker fabric....they really are boot-i-ful! ;0)
And back to bags! There has been a nude tote shaped hole in my bag collection......which has filled filled nicely by this Carvela Darla grab bag. This is the perfect shape and size to hold all my work stuff and the neutral colour-way means there won't be too much of the usual daily swapping of handbags as this will work with pretty much every outfit and colour combo thus saving me those a few precious moments whilst rushing out the door every morning! Happy days!

Having used the tote at the first opportunity I can confirm that's a great size and excellent quality and is a steal for the £59 price point. It comes with a very handy detachable cross-body strap and it contains plenty of internal pockets and compartments for keeping your bag organised!

So that completes my round-up of just a handful of those trans-seasonal gems just waiting to be uncovered at Shoeaholics....you can shop the collections here. As if the brilliant reductions aren't tempting enough if you sign up to their newsletter you can bag a further 15% off your first order. Don't forget to leave me a comment to let me know what you plump for! ;0)

    Hi there, really stylish and helpful post, re tricky season dressing! Love the trainers, am on verge of stealing yr style and buying same, could you pls advise on sizing and comfort pls? Are they true size, and does the material give? Thanku in advance, have a fabulous weekend - Lin, Herts x

    1. Thanks you so much! I have worn the trainers pretty much non-stop since I got them....I hope that vouches for the comfort! They go with so much of my wardrobe....they are my go-to and probably will be until it's boots weather. They are true to size as well, I'm a UK size 6 and would describe them as spot on!

      Hope that helps.....let me know how you get on if you take the plunge.
