Next came the trainer wedges. I bought these from Primark as they're pretty fashiony so not something I would want to spend much money on; they are proving a pretty useful alternative to high-heels though. I prefer to wear them as a 'casual heel' with jeans and a jacket rather than 'a smart trainer' with hareem pants and a zip-up but that's just me. They were definitely a bargain at £17 and are super comfortable. Again, I feel pretty ridiculously happy stomping around in them.
I've got fed up of getting dressed up all nicely for work each morning and then putting on plimsols or trainers, which I wear to travel in a bid to save my feet from traipsing around all day in cheap shoes. So the final purchase has been my first pair of adult 'sensible shoes'. It's been a while (I'm pretty sure the last pair involved a Start-Rite foot measurer) and I've had to shop around a bit but I eventually landed on this pair of black patent ballet pumps. They're not my faves but they came in a 6.5 (love a half size) and a wide fit - perfect for my (odd) feet. Even better still, they're from the wondrous Clarks.
So as you can see, a bit of a splurge, the purse is feeling a little light especially with all the other summer goings on. So, in a bid to redeem myself I have made the effort to say goodbye to some old faithfuls at the back of my cupboard (dustyy!) and tried to get organised.
