I attended the Boohoo press day a good few weeks ago and was very kindly given a voucher in the goody bag. As soon as I spotted these shoes on the website they went straight in my basket. I love the snazzy gold heel which helps make them look a little bit different. I was a bit worried about them giving me sausage legs - ankle straps can be a bit unforgiving - but I think they look ok. This strappy sandal seems to be my shoe of choice at the minute and I'm snapping up far too many different variations than is necessary. Primark have some cracking choices!

I wore this outfit out over the weekend for a girls night out with my mum and nan in the local noodle bar followed by numerous jugs of cocktails in Wetherspoons. Who says we're not  classy birds eh? I think we're going to try and make it a monthly date as what's better than having the chance to get dressed up and stuff your face. Maybe next time I'll give the crop top a miss as the food baby did not look attractive!
