Style Resolutions Update |The ‘Oxford’ Brogue

oxford brogues

Cast your minds all the way back to January 2015, I set up some Style Resolutions to work my way to the perfect ‘forever’ wardrobe. I’ve ticked off two pieces already – the ‘All-weather’ trenchcoat (which has served me well during these soggy Autumnal days) and the ‘Day-to-Night LBD’ (which I included in my Rome haul. With only a few months left of the year I’ve been fervently on the hunt for the last three items and as luck would have it I stumbled upon one of them in the sales recently.

I never thought this specific ‘Oxford’ brogue would be so hard to find – especially as I live i n O x f o r d. But it seems this season all the flat shoes trended towards more patented, dark berry coloured, suede or chunky heeled flats rather than the forever classic style. Not to mention the ones I did end up finding were slightly out of reach on my budget (ain’t nobody got time for spending £100 on leather shoes). However this week as I mentioned I completely lucked out on finding this pair from the ever dependable New Look sale (God Bless their teen section for their teeny tiny shoes sizes to fit my pixie feet!). And because it was in the teen section – instead of the marginally more expensive ladies – I managed to score these for an absolute steal of a price. Go me!

So that’s 3/5 ticked off – just the flannel shirt and shirtdress left! Any suggestions?
