I hope you all had a lovely Easter with your little families ..... we certainly did, a nice relaxing time with loved ones and cousins and finished off yesterday by venturing into Manchester for a little look around and some lunch and I may have come back with some shoes ..... well slip on trainers. 

I have been eyeing these casablanca bow trim trainers for a while now and passing Russell & Bromley I thought I would try them on. I showed them to my hubby and I got a slightly raised eyebrow followed by the comment .... "they look like something you mum would wear" albeit I was showing him the display shoe which was a size 7 in taupe, trust me I said I am going to ask for my size and in navy.  I put them on and I got the nod of approval.

Styled with denim they would compliment some lovely spring/summer capsule wardrobe combinations of a white shirt (I have the linen mix one above from H&M - great for summer), t-shirts and my favourite .... the pretty lace blouse

I felt the need to add them to my shoe collection as I have been wearing my white Adidas trainers endlessly and with the bonus of them being very comfy they make me feel on trend and when I have gone to wear my ballet pumps I just feel a little dated?? So, I thought this dressy type of trainer would be a great addition, they are also a super (and cheaper) alternative to the Chanel espadrilles that we all love. 

Is anybody else in the trainer love mode and tending to not wear ballet flats anymore?


P.S A little note on the sizing they run big - so take a size down. Oh and Dune do a cheaper alternative here



  1. Love the sneakers and the whole outfit. I might give the Dune ones a try. Unfortunately Russell&Bromley make it basically impossible to get their products outside the UK. I personally don't find my ballet flats dated, though. I think they're always in style. Right now I tend to prefer pointy ones over rounded toes but I still love all my ballet flats!
    Love your posts, keep up the good work!

    1. THANK YOU!! Excited wear them ..... the dune ones are a good alternative, I think Carvela have done something similar too. I know ballet flats will never go out of fashion and I suppose thats why Chanel repeat them each year ...... I am just having a moment and loving my trainers. My ballet pumps are safely in their boxes and I will fall back in love with them pretty soon I am sure when I want to feel all Parisian again.. xxx
