Ssssssnake skin shoes and boyfit denim

I’m getting my shopping mojo back…I think? I still can’t get very enthused about much, I blame the search for (the perfect) green sequin dress before Christmas. It sent me over the edge. The £100 Debenhams gift voucher remains firmly in tack, in my back pocket. Listen to this… I actually considered putting it towards a new hoover! Things are really that bad.

Today however I’ve picked up a fab little bargain in the form of a pair of flat snake skin lace-up shoes. They were all of £8.00 from Primark!

I love them


I’m probably late to the table ( I usually am) but I do love myself some snake-skin and have been hankering after a pair of shoes for a while now.

As you are probably aware I love my leopard print, with Jackets, boots and dresses making up the majority of my wardrobe (along with denim dresses!) but what it lacked was some sssssss -snake (See what I did there!)

Until today that is!



I had seen these beauties from Aquazzura a while ago, probably last summer if I’m honest  (they appear to have sold out everywhere) but at £224.00 that’s all I did look… or rather lust after.

I actually have a similar looking pair in plain black from New Look. I love anything that ties around the ankle, I find them very flattering. The only negative with this particular pair – they make my feet look HUGE.

I’m only a size 6 but while wearing them my feet have been referred too as  two barges, clowns feet, flippers … by the Mr of course. Who else??!!

But yes… I  think I actually prefer my Primarni ones. At least my feet look a  normal size.

H & M have some great little loafers in that would look great with my skinnies . Yours for only £9.99. Great price.


Not shoes but worth a Mention are these beauties. River Island Pointed Boot in Snake – £65.00.

A bit too shiny and new looking for my liking . They will look so much better when they’ve been worn a few times. Lived in I think they call it. I hate anything that looks too done, I always have. When I was younger I would get new shoes, I’d screw them up, scuff them anything to take away the ‘nasty’ newness. Mum says I was and still am a heavy footed filthy beggar…

She just doesn’t understand.

leo bootsI only popped into Primark on my way to Next to collect the  jeans I had ordered on Saturday. My plan was just to have a quick look what was on offer, if anything?

These shoes literally popped off the shelf and said “hello lady – buy me”  For that price it was a no brainer. They’re not even in the sale, this is the full price?!

and so it was Tracey got her first pair of snake skin shoes and the world was a better place 🙂

I’m pleased to report that I’m really happy with the relaxed boyfit jeans from Next – £26.00. I saw them on their instagram feed a couple of days ago and decided I had to have them. You know like you do…it becomes your soul mission in life. Tell me that it’s not just me??? (Note to self shopping mojo is definately returning)

I find Next jeans, along with River Island, are a really good fit.


If anything these jeans are ever so slightly too big (around the waist)  but I think that’s more to do with them being boy fit than anything else as I’m still sporting my mince pie belly from Christmas. I plan to wear them with a belt so its not a problem.

Suffice to say I love them and (I think) they look great with my new shoes.

I’m proposing to wear them both with my white Alice Temperley pussy bow blouse, grey belt and a grey or black jacket. I’d jazz it up with a pink or turquoise handbag and accessorises.

I also think these jeans will look fabulous with heels as pictured above. Luckily I have loads of heels!

I’ll have a play  later but I’m sure the choices will be endless…I’m already liking the idea of them teamed with my (newish) ASOS plum victoriana lace blouse.

It’s a shame its forecast bloody snow tomorrow!

    Loving your new shooooz and also the boyfriend jeans. I have absolutely no business buying any more shoes, but I can totally justify those jeans. They weren’t on my radar screen, so thanks for pointing them out! xx

    Love the boyfriends and the new shoes Tracey…..two fab purchases that will indeed look great with your Victorian blouse! Have to say I am really tempted by the H&M loafers, they are gorgeous, it’s a shame the weather has decided to get so cold but they’ll be fab for Spring! xx

      Thankyou Michelle. You have great taste so that’s good to know. I’m hoping to get away for a week in March, somewhere hot… I’m thinking these and the loafers would be ideal to travel in. That’s my excuse anyway 🙂 yes the snows coming…. Now what to wear? Xx
