Shoes of the Month | April

Yippie, yippie yay! I'm doing my Shoes of the Month post today!

This month's shoe post has been pretty late - mainly because I bought two pairs of gorgeous shoes. My big mistake however was that I bought two SEEMINGLY gorgeous shoes from a really cheap store. 

Did I mention 'BIG' mistake?!

Both shoes that I bought have already broken. What a waste of money.

So... as Autumn is in full gear now and winter is looming closer - I thought why not actually go to a REAL store and buy some boots that will get me through not one month, but perhaps actually a few winters and years!?

So without further ado...


I love them. They are snug and warm - comfortable.. padded on the inside, good quality and an amazing brown color. I love the buckles and zips - they're just great. 

It is more than I would EVER spend on a pair of shoes to be honest - a whopping R 650.00. But, that being said, it is so worth it. They aren't going to fall apart like my last two did. I think rather saving your cash and spending it on something of better quality is the right way to go. Goodbye cheap shitty stores. I will not miss you. 

I'm really not usually the type to buy nice shoes or spend heaps of money on glam clothing etc. I'm a traveler.... a bit of a hippy... so what's the point, right?? Well... every once in a while, spoiling yourself is nice. There's no doubt about it. 

I've worn my new shoes nonstop for the last few days. 

Here is what I wore them with this morning:




I paired my new boots with some jeggings (leggings that look like jeans.. yes I love them), a creamy sequenced vest and my peach blazer that I bought in Amsterdam last year. Oh, I'm also rocking a darker hairstyle and I've snipped my fringe. Hey, it's my birthday soon.... spoils ahoy! 

These shots were taken just before I left for work. My nephew has been coming to visit all week long because of all the holidays here in South Africa. So every morning before I drive my little blue Micra along the lagoon road to the gallery - I get to steal some of his gurgles and smiles. Blessed!!!

  1. Ohhh how lucky!! Those boots are absolutely gorgeous. I loooooooove them. 650 .. I'm trying to convert that into dollars. I wonder how much that would be..! Sounds like a lot but if you have them for a long time it will all be worth it.

    1. Thank you lovely lady! Uhhh - well I can't be assed to go onto the online converter right now... but R 650.00 is enough for a reeeeally fancy dinner for two plus a GOOD bottle of wine. Probably.

  4. The boots are so great, you will wear those for years. I agree, you get what you pay for, cheap shoes usually fall apart and even end up messing up your feet and lower back. Happy Wednesday!

  6. Love the boots :) I agree -- I'm starting to invest more better quality shoes (that will never go out of style), versus having a bunch of cheap trendy stuff that last for one season and end up being outdated.
