For the love of leopard


I got so many messages and questions about these loafers that I thought I would address them with their own little blogpost.

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! :)

  1. I never used to be a fan of leopard print but I've slowly started to incorporate it into my daily outfits. This is all thanks to a pair of loafers from Zara that I picked up in their summer sale :) Gorgeous outfit! I love how you've incorporated this print into your outfit. Also, enjoy your mini-break away X

  7. I'm so used to shoe sizes being much smaller than advertised so I would never dream of sizing up if I were to buy these. The way your pair the shoes is lovely.

  10. Haha, your husband really is a joker! My husband suggested that once too, but after seeing that there was only space for one pair of socks left for him, he quickly pulled out the second suitcase.

  14. Love everything about this outfit, and the shoes just make it - they really look designer. Kind of loving the idea of "plebby" fit jeans too - might have to look into those! Every time my husband and I go anywhere we have the same "one suitcase" conversation, and every time he's astonished when I fill said suitcase to the brim before he's started packing. He just doesn't learn! x
