The Vibrant Flats

Talk about bright. These flats literally glow orange. Subtle they are not but it's a nice injection of colour that feels very spring/summer appropriate.

I think I quite like Topshop flats. Those studded ones I blogged about last year are still going strong so there goes my theory that the only ones worth buying are from Tory Burch... :)

They do these in a few different shades - black/cream/fushcia - but orange was something new and something that I thought would look great with denim..whether jeans or shorts.

They are relatively comfortable (no blisters yet) but there isn't a lot of "give" on them as the material is polyurethane. This is important to note as its not exactly the most luxurious feel on your feet.

Still, I do love the little cut out detailing and combined with the colour - a close ringer for that Louboutin neon in the Spring/Summer collection - makes them a fun choice.


The outfit? 

Not much to write home about. Jeans and a white top but in the top's defence, the draped detail makes it a little more interesting. It is also bum covering which gets two thumbs up.

Topshop hasn't massively impressed me yet this season but these two items are simple and casual.


...and yay for me remembering to remove the label on the sole of the shoes :)

If I can take a decent face picture I promise to give you the Diorskin BB creme review next. That's a big "if" mind you :) 

See you soon!

    1. ooh in black...i was just saying above that i like the look of a the mint one but black would be more practical...

      is it quite transparent or can you wear it on it's own?

      Thanks Phoebe!

    2. It can actually be worn on its own. I have the black one on today. I love it.

  14. Amazing colour! and love the whole outfit.. Think I have the top in grey. :)
    I'm quite fussy on flats, I seem to stick to New Look ones, as I find they fit well/they give, as you say..

  15. Ahhh I have that top in black, and you've now convinced me that I need it in white! It's so flattering :) (therefore I must have it in every colour - right? #logic)

    Love the flats, they really brighten up the outfit :) and I agree with you on Topshop flats, my best friend & I bought the Vectras a year ago and they're still going strong... they've survived 3 holidays and a rainy British summer and still look great!

  16. Love the cut out detailing on those shoes, Laura! Funny how cheap flats can sometimes surprise you!

  18. Glad to know that I'm not the only one obsessed with neon! You're so lucky you have the sunshine to wear them in Dubai, it feels a little inappropriate in grey Blighty :(

  19. I love the cutout of the flats! I was actually planning on buying a similar pair but then I thought it wouldn't be suitable to wear as winter is approaching for me so I wouldn't be able to wear it.

  24. i honestly don't think i own a pair of flat shoes that aren't black, grey or navy so buying these would mean the completely stand out in my wardrobe but i'm willing to take that risk ;) they look so beautiful and i'm sure they'd look great with a tan! i love the cutout shapes as well and i really want to treat myself to them when i go on holiday this summer!

  28. Oh wow, I was expecting the shoes to be mega expensive. Are they comfortable enough? I'm a shorty so usually prefer heels but they're just so uncomfortable :(

    Will have to hunt these shoes and I love how bright they are!

  33. "If I can take a decent face picture .." See now, I thought you were being artistic! I know what you mean though .. I usually don't like my photo's either. Every once in a while, a good one comes along and I'll post it. For me, it's rare.

  34. I love the pattern! From far away, they look like your run-of-the-mill bright footwear, but up close they have a beautiful cut-out detail.

  39. Oh my god! the shoes are gorgeous! I love them. I just bought a couple of ballet pumps myself last week. One of them is neon fuchsia! Had I seen these red ones would have probably bought them instead! Check out my blog if you can. I have recently started writing! :)
