Wanton Wantin'

From net-a-porter
I've been wanting a new pair of flats - mainly for wearing on the weekend. I want something more formal than runners, don't want ballerinas and I already have a pair of flat brogues, so this narrows my options down significantly. I think I want loafers/moccasins.

I then saw a girl wearing these lovely skinny flood jeans with a pair of black and white python-print loafers and I began to very actively seek something similar, realising that whatever I buy must have an animal print. This was further cemented by these amazing shoes posted by Kit-Cat-Kitty-Cat - I know they're not flats, but I still want them because they're leopard and would look brilliant with jeans - cropped, boot-cut, light, dark - almost any pair of jeans.

I found my absolute dream pair, not only are they snake-print, but they are yellow/chartreuse. I can see myself wearing them with a pair of black flood-length trousers, a white tea shirt, big black sunglasses and some chunky bracelets. Sadly, they are not a budget-friendly item, or well they're not very friendly to my budget, so I'll just have to dream or keep my eye out for something similar on the high street.

  1. Ahh they are gorgeous - I love little details like the laces. CHeck out Urban Outfitters for some flats that are on sale for €18 at the moment - perhaps not as amazing as the one's above, but cute ones nonetheless. I invested in 2 different pairs at the weekend - black ones with tiny gold studs on the toe and cream patent ones with criss-cross straps that make them look slightly like ballet slippers.
    I've made a pact with myself to start buying better quality flats as I was always impulse buying cheap ones in Dunnes or Penneys that just ended up jaded within a few weeks & leaving me heartbroken!
    Thanks for the mention too m'dear x
