Shoes on a Shoestring #1 Tan Military Brogues

Hello! So I am FINALLY getting around to writing my first Shoes on a Shoestring post! I announced that I would be starting this series ages ago (around Christmas!!) and I had such a positive response - see the post explaining what I'm talking about here - unfortunately I've only just got around to starting it, because uni seems to be very good at getting in the way of everything!! Anyway, without further ado, here is my first feature:





 Primark £15

So these are brogue style military boots in tan (Primark shoes don't come with descriptions or names, booo!! So I've had to come up with something myself... sorry!) You can find them in Primark for £15, which isn't too bad! Their true colour is showing up best in the last picture, camera flash does strange things to tan and turns it orange! They're good for the cold season at the moment, we all know it's not getting any warmer in the UK for a good couple of months, and good for protecting your feet from the British rain! I thought these were a really cute take on the military boot as well, there's something slightly girlie about the brogue-style patterning on them, and I love the tartan patterned insides, which although you can't see when you're wearing them, it's still nice to know that the insides of your shoes are on trend.. ;)






































top and skirt topshop, blazer zara, tights m&s, shoes primark.

Here is an outfit that I wore these with a few weeks ago, and I'd just like to point out for my own peace of mind, that I HAVE had my hair cut since these pictures were taken, as you can see, it had got waay too long! But I think these shoes are quite versatile, I like them best with skirts, but they look nice with more flowy dresses and shorts, and probably leggings too! And I'm sorry for the poor quality pictures, it was night when I took them and I didn't have very much room either, my sister was crouched on the floor pushed up against the wall taking them for me... thanks Rach!!

What do you think of these shoes? How would you wear them?

  3. They're gorgeous shoes!
    I'd probably pair with jeans and a button up/blazer. But they could be worn so many ways! xx
