Retail Therapy

Today I woke up feeling a bit ‘meh’. I had loads of jobs to do, my sister is coming home with my nieces this evening for a long weekend, but still when I woke this morning I just felt meh. I have days like this as we all do, and I had a particularly stressful day in work yesterday so I’m sure that didn’t help.

I needed a pick me up, something to distract me, and then I realised yesterday was pay day. Score! So I decided to take a trip to the shops and see what I could treat myself to.

I have been on the hunt for a pair of studded Saint Laurent espadrilles for quite some time now but they are sold out EVERYWHERE! Much to my disappointment, even though I had given myself permission to buy them this month, I can’t get my hands on them. So when I came across these little Michael Kors babies my inner fashionista did a jump for joy. Two legs kicking in the air kind of jump for joy!


Although they aren’t the same, they come pretty close. The top toe part of the shoe is a black leather, and the back half is a kind of silvery metallic leather. They are super comfortable (well what I have worn of them so far), and they didn’t have the steep price tag of Saint Laurent either.


I now feel giddy and excited to take my new shoes out for a stroll. And even picked up as few bits in ZARA too as you do.

Morale of the story? Never underestimate the power of retail therapy when you’re feeling a bit meh!
