So leopard print is showing no sign of going away anytime soon. I’ve seen a lot style bloggers recently saying that they class leopard print as a neutral.
Whatever your stance on it there’s no denying that leopard print is still a favourite with many fashion retailers. I have to say that I personally cannot pull off leopard print clothes, but I’m certainly a big fan of using it in accessories.
And adding some quirky leopard print shoes or sandals always up your jeans and workwear to something a bit more fun. Even our senior female politicians, like Home Secretary Theresa May, are not immune to a bit of leopard print!
And I couldn’t finish without a picture of the Home Secretary’s feet in full leopard print splendour!
Have a great weekend!

I’m apologising now for the Polyvore posts last week. I’ve just discovered Polyvore and it’s my new addiction! I’ve loved creating outfits and looks for difference occasions. Here are a few I’ve put together for lunch dates and casual outings – like to the park. I’ve used items I already have, some that are on my wish list for AW15 and others that are similar to things I already own from previous seasons.
I hope you enjoyed having a look at my Polyvore sets. It was fun putting them together and will be doing other themes over the coming weeks.
Sounds daft, but every year my friend talks about buying some ‘back to school’ shoes for herself. She works in education too and I think it’s that subconscious idea of getting prepared to go back to work after the holiday. I realise that I’m guilty of this way of thinking too and over the years I’ve purchase several ‘back to school’ shoes.
This year I’ve gone for loafers. They seem to be everywhere I look in the shops at the minute, so I got a great black leather pair in TK Maxx.
The one overriding attribute in all of the ‘back to school’ shoes that I’ve bought in previous years is that they are black and leather. It hearkens back to those days when Mum really did take me to get sensible, black leather shoes for school. However, these days they’re sometimes not so sensible!!
Here are a few from previous years that are still going strong!
Does anyone else get themselves a new pair of ‘back to school’ shoes for going back to work after the summer holidays?
