Dear Daffodils: Golden Shoes

Golden Shoes

The other day I went for a winter walk, which I thought was a great idea to get some fresh air and to walk off all that chocolate I ate over Christmas, but it rained and it rained. All day. Never the less, I had a great day with my boyfriend and got to show off my new shoes.

I have wanted some brogues for ages as I really believe they're a timeless classic and last year my sister bought a pair like these and I immediately fell in love with them! Through my sister purchasing Grenson, I found my golden ones and I knew I had to have a  pair and bought them with my Christmas money.

They're so different and I think that's why I like them so much, I haven't seen many other metallic brogues around. The rubber wedge sole on them is quite thick and makes me about an inch taller. At least I know I'm not going to wear any holes in them anytime soon.

I must admit that I am a bit of a magpie and I'm attracted to anything that sparkles. These are so shiny you can see your reflection! At least my Granddad can't say I'm scruffy anymore (not that I ever was).

I'm really pleased that I got these shoes from Grenson! They were quite expensive for my pocket, but the quality of them is excellent and these will last me for a long time and you must always treat yourself to something luxurious once in a while.

Please let me know what you think. Are you a fan of them? Do you own a pair of brogues yourself?

I hope everyone's 2014 started off well.
