You see sometimes you need bad weather to, first of all, get you to think a little bit outside the box and secondly, to give you a ‘petal shower’!
I have been admiring these cherry blossom trees on my way home daily. While I was having the photos taken the crazy weather and wind helped the already weakened petals to fall all around me in a magical petal shower 🙂
What does that have to do with the clothes you say?
Well in this case there’s actually a bit of a link. I happened to be wearing the Orla Kiely for Clarks platforms which are graced with Orla’s famous print underneath (petals? leaves? close either way!). The location and timing just seemed to come together.I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pair of Orla’s shoes from Clarks, the collection is absolutely amazing and it wasn’t easy to choose just one pair! (See lots more styles HERE). I needed a fun pair of summer shoes though and these more than fit the bill. They’re super comfy as you would expect from Clarks.
When thinking of what to wear them with I flicked through some looks online and everywhere I looked there were platforms paired with tea dresses or shirt dresses in a very 70s take on the look. The shoes are in a retro style so I thought I will try something different and I went for a very modern, very simple ensemble.
70s, I hope you forgive me but I like my 2015 take on your platforms better!
