Hey everyone!

If there was one thing that I could come out of writing a blog with, it would be to take more risks in what I wear. Although I'm happy that more and more a start a blog post with 'I thought I'd try something new', the one thing that I've always been kind of conscious with is shoes. I don't quite know why, but I always end up wearing the same 3-4 pairs despite having well over a dozen, and typically stick to either black or tan colours, and colour barely ever gets featured (maybe due to my many teenage fashion disasters with colour during my nu-rave days!)

So when Hush Puppies contacted me about their new Life is... campaign, I thought it would be a great opportunity to try out a style or colour that was slightly out of my comfort zone and hopefully show you guys that life is about trying new things and taking these risks.


What I really like about these shoes is that it gave me an opportunity to really think about what to pair them with outfit wise. Although I love a great shoe, because the colours I wear are always similar, the shoes are sometimes a bit of an after thought so to be able to plan an outfit around a shoe was kind of refreshing to do. Luckily, I had just bought a similar coloured suede jacket from Zara which worked as a perfect combo with the shoes, and I really like the outcome of it! It's cool to be able to try out a slightly left field colour in shoes be able to let it shape what I wear, as opposed to the other way round, so I strongly recommend adding a bit of colour to your footwear this summer, you won't regret it!

  1. My boyfriend is the same exact way with his shoes! He always gravitates towards the same few black and brown pairs, even though he longs to branch out. I love the color of these, and think they paired perfectly with your outfit! Will def be showing him these shoes (:

  5. Really digging the jacket Joe, and I definitely agree with you on sticking to black and tan. I think one pair of metallic silver Nikes is enough for me when it comes to shoe experiments.
