When someone told me black and white was huge for spring I almost peed my pants I was that excited. I like colour. LOVE colour. But I’m a classic black and white girl at heart. It’s just so chic, so simple and so very cool. The longer it’s considered “in” the better for me. Though you won’t see me calling it “out” anytime soon.

Something else I don’t seem to tire of lately is the old pattern clash. Dani reminded me once of pattern clash week for last year’s Aussie Curves set of challenges and how squirmy I was about it. I like matchy matchy, I said, clashing just doesn’t make sense to me. It turns out though that I love a monochrome clash and I love a stripes with anything clash.

 I know you’re all looking at the heading, then at my shoes, then back to the heading, right? Maybe not, but now you are. Party, you say… In THOSE shoes? and let me tell you that yes indeed these babies are great for a night out on the town. This was a dinner out for a friend’s birthday and some drinks at a bar. But this weekend just gone for my sister’s birthday I danced the night away only peeling them off well after 4am.

Yup. You read that right.

Wedges, what can I say. When it comes to being on your feet, dancing, trekking around and all that, they are essential. More and more I walk away from my pointy, wobbly shoes and choose wedges. I love the height, the curve of my leg in heels but what I don’t love is tripping or slipping on an unknown surface. That’s such an issue for me going anywhere in my big heels. And it’s solved, mostly, by wedges. I love that. And you may have noticed how heavily featured these babies are… Well they’re the best.
