Summer Shopping at Westfield Stratford City

When it comes to shopping I am typically an online type of girl. There is no better pleasure then being able to surf every brand you could think of without leaving your bed – or pyjamas.

However, Westfield Stratford is my exception to that rule. With an array of shops that would make any girls knees weak, Westfield Stratford City is the perfect destination for anybody who loves shopping – and has a budget to blow.

Daniel Footwear – Black Court Shoe

A simple pair of shoes are most often the hardest to find! I cannot being to explain the amount of time I have spent looking for the perfect pair of black flats – I just want comfort and style, but for some reason that seems hard to find!

The same applies to my search for a pair of black courts. I don’t tend to wear heels on a daily basis because, to put it simply, they slow me down and I just can’t be bothered to attempt struggling in to the office in them when I can walk twice as fast in flats!

However when I attend events or go out of an evening naturally I like to don a pair of heels, and a simple pair of black heels will go with everything and look great too.

My search led me to Daniel Footwear and from there I found this pair that were exactly what I wanted!

These Aysgarth Pointed Court shoes are gorgeous. Not only are they really well made and comfortable, but they were under £60 too! From looking at the Daniels Footwear range of shoes I am actually impressed over all – there are some really great styles and they are all reasonably priced too. Plus if this pair are anything to go by then the quality is definitely on point too.

Since these beauties arriving I have been able to pair them with a variety of outfits. Whether it is a pencil skirt and blouse for work, or a dress on a night out. They haven’t let me down yet and I think I will have many years wear out of them yet!

I am really trying to add a lot more classic pieces to my wardrobe that are timeless and I can wear again and again – and these courts are the perfect addition to this wardrobe.

Coast Formal Dress

Whenever I have a special event to prepare for, or just want to treat myself so something extra special, Coast is always at the top of my list. 

With such a vast array of formal, and some slightly more casual dresses, I know that they will not disappoint and that I am more than likely to find something that I like. 

That was definitely true when I spotted this beauty on the Coast website – and it was in the sale too. 

I cannot even begin to explain how beautiful this dress is. The ombré shades subtly fade in to each other, and the multitude of colours within the dress means it is easy to accessorise too. 

   
 Teaming this with a neutral colour like silver or gold would look great, alternatively pulling out a shade from the dress itself would keep all your accesories aligned with this drop dead gorgeous piece. 

I would say when shopping at Coast that their pieces are true to size. Although whenever buying anything particularly tight, such as a pencil dress, I might look to size up just to give me a little bit more breathing space – and room to eat! The most important part of most formal events. 

This dress has me completely besotted and I cannot wait to wear it. In fact, I might just spend the day at home in it!

Michael Kors Sunglasses

Sunglasses – the summer essential that I tend to wear more as a hair accessory than actually on my face, well a girl has to keep her hair off of her face one way or another. 

These Michael Kors shades are my pair of the summer and I absolutely adore them. I always struggle to find a style of frame that actually suits me face – although when you’re hungover or the sun is shine directly in your eyes you would be forgiven for no longer caring!

However these wide, square edged frames are the perfect size and shape for my face shape and because of that they are a season staple. 

The best part? Instead of the usual ~£100 RRP these babies where just £49.99 so an absolute steal!

The tortoiseshell colouring and pattern of the frame means that, in my opinion, they don’t sit so harshly on your face as a block colour. They also go with a wide range of outfits being in such a neutral tone. 

  
So, if you are looking for the perfect pair of designer shades (because who doesn’t like to treat themselves to a little bit of quality now and again) then take a look at Discounted Sunglasses – they came super fast, in a luxury case and where exacrly what I had hoped for.
