There’s no denying the Gladiator sandal is king when it comes to trends this season! Chloe, Valentino, Tibi, Boss and Erdem (& many more besides) all incorporated these Grecian statement flats in their Spring/Summer 15′ collections. I say flats but Chloe added a slight wedge to this pair making them the must-have shoe amongst the fash-pack. As always I’ve done my very best to compile a little edit of my top picks and no matter what your budget, there’s something here for everyone, from Primark to Valentino and everything in between!
Today I’m re-visiting the age old (ok, maybe not) debate of flats vs. heels. I’m very much pro-heels, I’ve always been a heel wearer and I love the how a pair of heels can instantly transform a look. On the flip side, flats clearly have their pros…comfort and practicality being their main selling points. So in today’s look we have a pair of Valentino butterfly espadrilles (perfect for summer, and soooo pretty!) vs. these brown leather platform sandals (the epitome of 70’s style) by Sante. I’d love to know your thoughts on heels vs. flats and which look you prefer?
Well this past week of glorious weather has been nothing short of immense, that said it has caught us all off guard. One minute it’s freezing, next minute it’s 18 degrees! This leaves us all very unprepared in the wardrobe stakes. After a couple of days of this ‘heat wave’ I rummaged through the summer section of my wardrobe to see what I could find and I came across this Ganni wrap dress which I wore just short of a year ago on holiday. I knew instantly that I was going 70’s-the-shiz out of this dress so I layered it over a pair of flares and there we have the perfect 70’s silhouette.
Time to check out my weekly ‘Wish List’. With spring now in full flow and summer fast approaching my wish list is growing rapidly with all kinds of new season goodies. Each week I’m going to share with you a few of my favourite items and this week I’ve created a £50 and under edit, score!

This white blazer has quickly turned into one of my favourite pieces, it’s so versatile but turns even the most casual of outfits into a more crisp and sleek look. In today’s outfit I’ve worn it over a basic white tee from ASOS (from the ‘Forever’ range – FYI: the best basics around at an affordable price!) and paired with these busted knee skinnies (seen earlier this week here). You might have seen my collection of new shoes from Sante which I posted on Instagram and this is one of the pairs I received from them. The leopard lace up design gives them a very Senso-esque vibe wouldn’t you agree? The heel, mid-height and blocked in shape is going to make the perfect go-to sandal for summer!
Today I’m off to shoot with John Lewis for an ‘all white’ edit they’re putting together, which will be perfect for Spring/Summer. And over the last few days I joined Snapchat and I’m just starting to get the hang of it so why don’t you come and join me (username: ejstyle) for a little insight into my daily life and of course…lots of random crap
Today’s casual look combines some of my favourite go-to pieces; a Breton stripe tee, blazer, pointed flats and boyfriend jeans. It’s a look which you can’t go wrong with. Last week you might have seen my post on Aquazzura dupes, well these ones didn’t make the edit but they certainly are a front runner at only £10!
