Shoe Diary with John Lewis

7 day shoe diary

The Breton

EJSTYLE - Forever 21 faux leather biker moto jacket, Zara Denim shirt, F21 breton stripe t-shirt, Forever 21 lace up black skinny jeans, Zara black suede pointed toe pumps heels, Balenciaga le city bag, OOTD

In today’s post there’s quite a few of my favourite wardrobe staples, pieces that I continuously buy slightly different variations of and wear all the time.  The Breton Stripe tee; literally a piece that I couldn’t live without!  This particular tee is from Forever 21 and was under £10, so incredibly inexpensive…but very valuable to my wardrobe.  Secondly the denim shirt, which you’ll have seen in so many of my posts, and that’s simply because it is so versatile.  SS15 brings back the love of denim and double denim so no doubt you’ll be seeing it next season too.  I bought this shirt from Zara for £29.99 about 2 years ago but you can find so many similar options (linked below).  Thridly, the biker jacket.  Again this is another inexpensive purchase at under £30 (faux leather) but I do have over 10 faux and real leather biker jackets, and I would wear one every day if my conscience allowed me ;)  The black skinny jeans are also high up on my list and I always tend to have ‘stock’ of about 5 or 6 pairs but with slight varations in style.  These lace up skinnies from Forever 21 are one of my Isabel Marant look-a-likes and can add a real designer feel to an outfit.  Lastly, black pointed toe pumps; I would say they can be suede or leather but there’s just something I favour about suede, despite how impractical they are.  These ones were a Zara sale purchase over a year ago and they’re still going strong!  They great thing about these shoes is that they automatically amp up an outfit.  If I’d worn converse or even boots with this outfit it would be a completely different look.
I’m toying with the idea of creating a capsule wardrobe from say 10-12 of my wardrobe staples so if you’d like to see a post like that then please leave me a comment below :)

Black ‘N’ Stripe

Happy Friday folks!  Opting for all black today with a spot of colour (or should I say a stripe of colour?) on these amazing Zara sale trousers which I picked up for a mere £20.  Warning to anyone who is errrrr “vertically challenged”, you’ll definitely need these taking up because I’m 5ft 9 and have 4″ heels on here and still touch the floor!  I’ve gone for simplicity and paired them with this Topshop high neck jumper, a biker jacket, heels (obvs!) and my Boy.  It’s not a particularly adventurous ensemble due to the abundance of black but I love the slightly sports luxe feel about it.

Green Envy

EJSTYLE - Fashion Union teal green faux fur coat, balenciaga classic city bag, Black skinny jeans, Zara lace up ankle boots SS15, winter outfit, influential fashion bloggers, london street style, Emma Hill

Currently the only thought on my mind is keeping warm!  temperatures have plummeted here in the UK and it bleedy freezing!  The cold weather is a huge pain in the arse for me because I refuse to wear Uggs and a Moncler parka coat (urgh the cliche!).  This incredible teal faux fur coat (last seen here) has been a firm favourite of mine this season because it really is so warm.  It’s synthetic so it literally doesn’t let your skin breathe, and this is very much a positive thing!  I kept the rest of the outfit pretty simple with this Zara grey jumper (please note: worn over several thermal t-shirts!), black skinny jeans and some Zara heeled boots with thermal socks.

DIY: Ostrich Feather Trim Jeans

EJSTYLE - DIY Ostrich feather trim jeans, customise jeans, old boyfriend jeans

I did promise you guys some more DIY posts so here we go!  Like most girls I had loads of jeans, most of which go unworn because I have my faves and I wear those to death.  But I pretty much live in my jeans so I figured why not re-vamp some of my lonely, forgotten pairs?  I’ve actually customised a few pairs already and I’ll be sharing them with you over the next few weeks.  Today’s jeans have been customised with an ostrich feather trim (bought here) which is super inexpensive but a really cool look.  So let’s get crafty….

EJSTYLE - John Lewis myshoestory, wedge nike sneakers trainers, Acid wash black jeans asos, Winter OOTD, london street style

Today marks the first day of my 7-day Instagram shoe diary with John Lewis.  Each day on my Instagram account I’ll be sharing with you my chosen footwear of the day as part of the John Lewis campaign #myshoestory.  When JL approached me to take part in this campaign naturally I jumped at the chance, as you all know, I love my shoes!  This week you’ll see a whole range of different footwear that I’ll be wearing and it’s not just heels as you’d expect.  Today my twist (ok with a heel!) on a casual outfit donning these awesome Nike wedge trainers with a longline grey coat, chunky knit and skinny jeans.  This is the perfect outfit for running errands, maybe doing the school run if you’re a mum and even a great travel outfit!  The slight wedge on the trainers still add a little height but as they’re Nikes, they feel like you’re walking on air.  Make sure you follow me on Instagram to catch all 7 days on my shoe diary.
