A High Street Hidden Gem…


An unfortunate turn of events recently led to a very fortunate fashion discovery. Arriving for a meeting I looked down to see that one of my favourite leopard print loafers was without a heel ( I had walked in them a lot). Aside from being gutted I was also lopsided and had an exposed heel that was not going to sustain the journey home so an emergency pair needed purchasing…

My wardrobe malfunction happily led me to H&M (any excuse) where I snapped up these grey sling backs and I am so glad I did. I have always loved the brand for myself, their kidswear is great and the homewear fills most of my house but in all honesty I had never really given their shoes a second glance. And I don’t know why, it’s such a hidden gem! Since buying these shoes not only have I worn them to death, I have received numerous compliments on them too – my favourite one came from the doctor as she examined me for a sinus infection! Not bad for an accidental shoe purchase.

Shoes, H&M (sold out)

Sadly their popularity was shared and they sold out quickly but regularly checking the shoe section every time I ‘pop in’ has become a bit of a habit. Naturally the hunt for bridesmaid shoes for Daisy took me straight there and saw me leaving with a coral pair of ballet pumps for her and a pink velvet pair for me – oops. Luckily it’s not an expensive habit but it’s fast becoming an addictive one. The children’s shoes are just as gorgeous and affordable as the women’s – the ballet shoes that were only intended for one use have now seen Daisy through many a special occasion this summer and won her just as many compliments.

I’ve put together my current favourites but next time you are in store why not have a look…
