Weekday Casual: Boyish Items with Polka Dot Details

DSC07228 (2)I felt in love with Boden’s shoes department since my last purchase. Those orange lace-up flats are my go-to shoes at the moment. And the next thing I knew it was another pair of Boden shoes showing up at my doorstep…

These beauts are called Alice High Heel. They are one of Boden’s best selling shoes which are also available in a mid-heel and a flat versions. The colour I picked is `Vanila China Blue Spot’ which features an off-white suede with blue polka dots on it. The mint green bows with coral tassels give these vintage-inspired T-bar heels a very refreshing modern twist. If you are not sold by this colour, these cuties also come in three other amazing contrast colours and another spot print option. 😉

Although the fit predictor on Boden’s website suggested me to get these in 37.5, I went with my usual size 37 anyway. They fit me fairly well but I’d say go up half a size if you have wider feet.

I understand some ladies may hesitate to get funky colour shoes as they are afraid of not having anything in their wardrobes to go with them. But I found it quite the contrary. In my humble opinion, quirky looking or funky print shoes go with a lot of outfits as they are so `out-of-place’ to begin with. The easiest way to style them is to pick items that share the same colours. In this case, anything in the blue, white, red or green family would do.

I paired these heels with a quilted shoulder bag and some of my usual boyish items to create a dash of feminine details in this otherwise very masculine look. Here’s my first attempt with these fun polka dot heels, and I can’t wait to re-style them!
