I'll start with the important information first. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SIZE UP.
If you value your feet at all, do not, repeat do not, order your size.
I think my feet died a little when I first squeezed these on. They came up so impossibly tight that I had to check whether or not I had made a mistake and ordered a 4. No, they were a 5, they were just so BLOODY SMALL.
As time has passed they have loosened up a tad and I predict in about a month's time they will be an ideal fit. This all sounds a bit too much work for a pair of high street shoes but….do you know how rare it is to find a good leopard pointy toed shoe that doesn't cost the earth? As someone who categorises herself as a stalker of said shoe type I can tell you, it's really friggin' rare.
The print is nice, the quality good…it's just that the fit is a little off. This is definitely a shoe to buy in store where you have an opportunity to see if you fit the slipper, Cinderella style.
I like to wear them with a slightly cropped jean. This pair are also from Topshop (#notsponsored) and are what I would deem a plebby fit. Medium wash, medium rise and straight leg - they make a nice break from impossibly skinnies and unflattering boyfriends. I will also say that the denim is a very sturdy, reliable quality. I am kind of sick of having a saggy arse after wearing lycra-laden jeans for a few hours and pleasingly, these have a good strength and stiffness to them that avoids that from happening.

Loafers: Topshop - Link! but do go in store for these and don't order online is my advice.

I am VERY excited as I write this post as I am just about to start packing for my mini break. I need to pull all my exciting white, black and grey clothes and figure out what last minute washing needs to be done. The husband has suggested that we share a suitcase - LOL! What a joker!
See you soon! :)
