We need to talk, step into my office baby

Top: Topshop. Skirt: Matalan. Shoes: c/o So You Shoes

I have a secret. This is my first ever pair of slingbacks. So today you can call me Slingback Susan.
This may seem a little strange, I mean surely everyone owns slingbacks right? I don't know if I'm the only one who cringes at the word slingback. And think of some wrinkly heel in a grim kitten heeled silver shoe. But yeah that's what I do. 
And then today, these popped through my letterbox...and when I arrived home, the inner child in me ripped open the box. 
And right there, I saw, that actually, slingbacks CAN be sexy.
I literally am in love with them. I'm not sure if that's possible to have feelings for a shoe? But I really do. I want to marry them. They're a soft suede material, which always makes them look far more expensive than they are!
Considering how sexy they look, I really don't help them. I managed to make it down the stairs in them, and out to the garden. But boy did I look like I had an egg growing in the wrong places.
So before I plan a night out with my tall friends, I need to have a few training days in them. I think they may also just be the highest shoes I've ever owned. And maybe next time you see me, I'll be in a plaster cast.

  36. Eee, Belle & Sebastain love <3 The shoes look mega, but crazy high. Definitely practise walking in them, or just wear them somewhere where you won't have to walk much, like out to dinner or something? Love how simple, but dead cute your outfit is :)
