In Brogue...


It's happened, I've invested in flats...Something that's not my running trainers, Converse or flip flops...

If you have been with Mission;Style for a while you'll know that I'm barely 5 foot 1 with backcombed roots so, flats are usually a NO GO in my world! 


The whole brogue/masculine style thing is really on my radar at the moment for so many reasons and dare I say, there's an element of needing some practicality!! I'm a long way off ditching my heels but, chasing around after my 1 year old (and increasingly mobile) nephew, isn't easy in 4 inch spikes!


I've been researching the choice out there on the High Street and (much to my mum's surprise and, quite possibly mine), the best selection has to be in Clarks!!! 


The last time I went to Clarks I was being fitted for school shoes and had my feet measured in that weird machine which, I can only think was my first experience of claustrophobia! 


After much deliberation (and not a feet squeezing machine in sight), I settled for the Hamble Oak in Wine however, these little lot were also on the short list and let's be honest, at least one of them will be mine one day soon...;


These ones are from the Mary Portas (who I love BTW) collection, called La Promenade. Buy here.


The black patent and leopard print Hambles, buy here.


These, these are gorgeous on... I was sooo torn by Hotel Diva! Buy here.


(Hotel) DISCO, that's what they're called, a happy medium and so wearable! Buy here.

The black version of mine....Buy here.


The new brogues went on their maiden voyage today, a quick (honestly) trip to the shops (because I forgot to take my 25% off H&M voucher yesterday and it runs out today...). I have to say on the comfort front, 20/10!!! No rubbing and (this is happening) the comfort sole is like walking on cotton wool!!!
