Loafing Around

 

I'm a flats girl at heart. Not one for tottering around - as much as I can appreciate a fix pair of heels, I stumble over myself on flat ground. And I've been getting into my loafers big time over the past few weeks!

This pair from the H! by Henry Holland range from Debenhams link slot into my wardrobe perfectly. Lots of black, a little bit sparkly (I'm something of a magpie) and not quite smart enough for me to be worried about scuffing them up. I'm a student. And a messy one at that. So the true test for any footwear can't be any tougher than the marathons across Sheffield that I subject my footwear to!


Black Skinny Jeans - Primark
Stripe Jumper - Urban Outfitters
Scarf - Lush

I've stuck to a pretty monochrome outfit with these, save for a lovely Lush scarf. When they first arrived in the post my first thought was how narrow they looked! In the words of my housemate, "if you have toes you can't wear these shoes," and it's true for the likes of my wide feet they were a bit of a struggle. But when lots of loafers tend to give you blisters on a first wear these are soft enough to mould to your feet and they've not been taken off alllllll weekend!

Usually buying shoes online does put me off - no chance to wander around in a shop doing the Trying On Walk which you never actually do once you've bought the bad boys. You know the walk I'm talking about. But these are a pretty good bet.

This post is part of a review Most Wanted Seasonal Staples campaign with Vouchercodes, and I would say that Debenhams have impressed me loads – these should definitely be contenders if you’re looking for a pair. As an added bonus, if you are a Debenhams fan it might be worth having a look at the discount page to see if you can’t get a bit of money off your next spree.

  7. I don't shop in Debenhams that much but when I do, I'm always drawn straight to the Henry Holland section. Such cute stuff. Have you seen the penguin print red top? No use on my shape but I bet it'd look ace on you.

  8. I've never been a pumps girl but I love loafers - suitably interesting and androgynous. And so much easier to run away in than heels! Hope the move went smoothly. x

  13. agree with the trying on rule, this is why retailers need to offer at least free returns, asos makes things easy
