Ss17 Trends -Must have Mules 

Guys Mules are still the business.  They are even more trendy today than ever so they are definitely a MUST have! 

I love the cross mules and you can find a pair just about everywhere.  Well… unless your tall and have big feet then you might need to be a little more strategic about where you get your mules from.

I have been shopping the Dorothy Perkins, Primark and New look mules range for 2 main reasons.

  • They are affordable
  • They offer wide fit and size 9 shoes.

I reviewed the cross mules from my recent purchase. I love the vibrant colours which all three retailers offer in this style. I must say the yellow mules from Primark wins hands down.

Newlook have a slightly wider range of colours. However, I was a little disappointed that they only had size 8 available in the style I wanted and unfortunately it was very pinchy on my little toes. These shoe must have just been made small because I was able to fit into Primark and Dorothy Perkins size 8.

 I was please to find that Newlook do have other styles of mules in wide fit and size 9’s.  This  clip on pompoms add some fun to my mules. You can buys yours here.

Although the Dorothy Perkins crossed Mules are a little bit more expensive, they are worth the extra £££’s. These go up to a size 9 and probably have the highest heel of them all.

The cheapest of them all was of course from Primark, it cost a jaw dropping £10. These have been my most worn pair of shoes in the last few weeks and it is holding up pretty well.

Have fun shopping for Mules this season.  The New look and Dorothy Perkins style can be found here  and here.

See you soon.

Travel diaries -Discovering Africa Sierra Leone lookbook -day 2 pt 1

I woke feeling so tired today. I think all the travelling and excitement has caught up to me.

I took a well  needed nap after breakfast before heading out to the sea front.

I can not get over these cute mules. I will soon be sharing how I customised this.  For now am just going to leave this right here. 

We had dinner at Montana by Lumbly beach. The breeze here was so refreshing. Apparently Sierra  Leonians are night crawlers.  Despite leaving the venue at 9.15pm there was hardly anyone at the restaurant. However at 4am when we passed the area again it was a road block.  

I am still making the most of this Zara dress. The hem is so much fine and it moves with the wind.

NEWS- Dorothy perkins goes plus size

Three cheers for Dorothy Perkins. woop woop woop.

I hope I am not the only one that’s excited about this new development.  I have been a HUGH fan for Dorothy Perkins. I remember being in school and never being able to get trousers to fit my long legs. Dorothy Perkins was the only shop that could save me from wearing skirts in the winter because I could not find black trousers to fit.  I remain loyal to them for that very reason.

Check out some of my favs from the new range.

dpYou know I love sparkly things so this top is so up my street. Looks a perfect length too.

I have chosen this dress because checks are totally trending this season.  The model wore it exceptionally well.

A Tall and plus size thumbs up to DP for this fabulous collection.  The only down side is that I would have loved to see more colour in the range.  If you ask me they played it safe.

Till next time xx
