Did you ever wear Clarks shoes as a child? A trip to their store punctuated my every September and if you were a little girl in the 80s I am sure you remember my very favourite pair - the Magic Steps. They were amazing. They had pictures in the heels and came with a little key brooch. Seriously, they were the stuff of dreams!

Fast forward well...quite a few years later...and here I am wearing Clarks again.

They have been on a bit of a reinvention path these last fews years and they are pushing more fun and modern designs.

I was sent a couple of pairs and I thought I would give these heels a whirl today. I wore them to brunch, paired with jeans and a white shirt.

The shoes have a a subtle pattern and a metallic ankle strap. Initially I wasn't sure on the strap - I have stumpy legs already so I don't need any more help in shortening them. But I think when worn with black jeans it works. I love the way the metal peeps through and when worn with a plain outfit - it adds some much needed "extra".

Shirt: H&M
Jeans: Current/Elliott - Link!
Sunglasses: RayBan - Link!
Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim Medium Pashli- Link!
Shoes: Clarks - Link!

...as I look at these photos I see that I still have my brunch tag/bracelet round my wrist. Nice little extra there :)

So tell me...would you/do you/have you ever worn Clarks shoes? :)


  1. Clarks.....I don't know if I'm being snobby.....but Clarks....doesn't hit the spot for me! ;))


    1. haha no worries Jessica - I get what you're saying :)

      Tuy hắn đang ngủ nhưng tiên lực trong cơ thể vẫn điên cuồng tăng trưởng. Tốc độ vận chuyển của tiên lực kinh khủng đến mức nếu Thiên Vận Tử đứng bên cạnh nhìn cũng phải cảm thấy cả kinh.

      Khi tiên lực trong cơ thể hắn đạt đến một mức độ nhất định thì Yêu Tinh trong đan điền vỡ vụn không một tiếng động rồi tan ra, yêu lực trở nên dày đặc nhưng lại lập tức bị thôn phệ rồi trở thành một bộ phận của tiên lực.

      Trong phạm vi mười trượng quanh cơ thể Vương Lâm, từ khi hắn bắt đầu ngủ say, từng tia tiên khí từ trong cơ thể hắn bay ra bao phủ khắp bốn phía. Một năm trôi qua, trong phạm vi này tiên khí đã trở nên cực kỳ nồng đậm.

      Vương Lâm vẫn đang ngủ nhưng tay phải hắn vẫn cầm chắc bầu rượu.

      Vào một ngày, Vương Lâm chậm rãi mở hai mắt ra, hắn ợ lên một tiếng, trong mắt lại hiện lên một tia mê man. Hắn theo bản năng mà nhìn khắp bốn phía, lúc này vẻ mê man trong mắt hắn lập tức biến mất rồi được thay thế bằng vẻ thanh tỉnh.

      Vương Lâm lập tức đứng thẳng người lên, trong mắt hắn lộ ra vẻ tỉnh táo. Sau khi cẩn

  2. I haven't worn clark shoes in a while but I have got one of there bags recently which I like

  3. I actually think those shoes look nice! Clarks has a bit of a reputation for being an "older" brand, no? My dad loves their shoes for work, haha.

    xo, alison*elle

  4. I personally never owned or used Clark's footwear but my mom is an absolute loyal customer! She loveeee their footwear and can go on and in about how comfortable they are....


  5. I love clarks shoes, I have some flats for work, heels and two pairs of boots, my three children also have all their shoes from clarks (at least 4 pairs a year each!) I love these heels, so simple and elegant, yet something different!

  6. I don't think I've worn Clarks since primary school, I imagine their shoes are really comfy and would consider them in the future.

  7. Clarks do have some gems every now and then :)

  8. Looking so gorgeous Laura. Loving the color of your Phillip Lim bag. Such a beaut of a bag. I also like the brunch tag bracelet. ;) I didn't notice it until you mentioned it.

  9. Hmm, I PURCHASE and wear Clarks all the time .. if that sounds like I'm jealous that they sent you free pairs .. well, yes I am.


  10. Those are probably some of the nicest Clarks I've seen. Even last year I would never even consider them, but those shoes, I would! Also, I absolutely adore your bag!

  11. I recently bought a pair of snakeskin wedges from Clarks. The wedge bit is wooden and goes beautifully with the snakeskin leather. They're incredibly comfy too - I was absolutely gobsmacked that this was the same Clarks brand my grandma wore! I really like these on you, Laura - very chic and classic!

  13. I love the shirt, is it recent? I want one!

  14. Your pastel blue Pashli looks fabulous!
    Happy Saturday Laura xoxo

  15. I blogged about the Magic shoes the other day, the key on my Paddington reminds me so much of them. I found the old tv ad, I spent hours dreaming of those shoes before I got them. They were probably the first item I ever really yearned with such longing for. www.essjay23x.blogspot.com

  16. My mum wouldn't let me wear anything other than Clarks for years! Magic steps were the bees knees. It's somewhere I would never look for shoes. I think if it as somewhere my mum shops but I have a good friend who regularly shops there and I've commented on how nice her shoes are. X

  17. I only like Clarks Originals. The Desert Grace boots are my fave pair!

  18. I have a feeling Clarks are to Brits what Kickers were to my little French self. Needless to say, Clarks is doing a lot better now. Also, how amazing is the Pashli in pastel blue?!!!

  19. I LOVE these! they're so chic and so not like the Clarks I've worn in the past haha. I might actually have a look since they're usually comfortable and who can say no to a pair of stylish but comfy pair of heels? And that bag is such a beauty :)

  20. Clarks do amazing winter boots (obviously not that vital in Dubai!) but I love the way they look and they are so well made! x

  21. I love that bag it will go perfect in winter and spring :) ❇♥ Blog written by two friends: http://teenagewastelandbyhd.blogspot.com/ ♥❇

  22. I certainly can relate to the school days! I remember spending ages persuading my mum to buy me a pair of rather expensive black boots with star and heart things hanging from them haha, I quite like these! They look really chique, but then pretty different in a good way too ^_^

  23. I totally remember those shoes and I actually still have the scroll and the little gold plastic key somewhere, I'm sure the soles had a keyhole that the key fitted. Wow we were cool, our parents served us well :) xx


  24. the shade of this bag is just amazing
    It would mean the world to me If you'd check my blog

  25. I love them, show us the other pair!

  26. The colour of that bag is nothing short of incredible. Looking through this post, it was love at first sight for me. I must have it, of course. Would you happend to know if it is a limited edition shade? I will have to save my pennies for a few months.

  27. I just bought the Pashli from your link. I have been dreaming of a pale blue bag forever. So today was the day!
