I recently treated myself to a new pair of booties and I’m so besotted with them I had to share. I was initially drawn to them because they reminded me of a Gianvito Rossi pair I desperately wanted but simply couldn’t justify. These beauties are from Sam Edelman and less than half the price.
For those that don’t know Sam Edelman he is an American designer but is stocked by a number of UK boutiques and online stores including Netaporter, Very Exclusive, Harvey Nichols and Next to name but a few! Now you know him you’ll probably see him everywhere, particularly as he has now expanded into ready to wear, handbags and jewellery! Although he still remains most recognised for his shoes. The price point sits somewhere around the mid price bracket, think Dune, Karen Millen or Nine West pricing. However, his fashion forward designs, which are influenced straight from the catwalk all put quality at the forefront and you are definitely getting more than what you pay for. I would prefer rather a pair of Sam Edelman shoes over any of the listed competitor brands.
I would never usually refer to a heel this high as a daytime shoe but these are so comfortable and supportive around the ankle I know I’ll be strutting around in these a lot. Plus I think these kind of boots are best styled down and kept casual, so thank goodness they are comfy!
The other thing I wanted to talk about was a super fun jewellery brand discovery! I think it is fair to say I’m currently obsessed with Wanderlust + Co. I initially found them through Instagram and instantly fell in love with their fun and quirky designs. Plus they have plenty of rose gold pieces which is always a good sign! I went a little OTT and bought quite a few bits.
Some my favourite pieces are my Alphabet Rings. I got DOM in sliver and also my initials in rose gold. They are so much fun but still very subtle and delicate. If you’re looking for Christmas presents for friends, this could be a great option (plus they’re adjustable so you don’t have to worry about ring sizing)! I’m also really loving my Dreamer bangle, which is available in silver or gold. You can expect to see a lot more of Wanderlust + Co popping up on the blog from now on!
I’m in my favourite and now VERY well worn Topshop Joni jeans. These are my absolute favourites in terms of comfort and look and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. However, I find they never last more than 6 months, as once they’ve been washed a few times they look so worn out! I’m definitely due a new pair but if anyone has any tips onto how to make their jeans last a little bit longer, I am all ears!
