I have real difficulty when it comes to buying flats. I can buy trainers, I can buy boots, I can definitely buy heels but flat shoes are a real hurdle. I don't know what it is but I just can't bring myself to part with my cash when it comes to heels under 4 inches. However, being a uni student, it makes so much more sense to invest in comfy, chic flats than to keep buying high heels that I won't wear. So, I thought making a little lust list would help kickstart my flat shoe fetish (hopefully).

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know that I am on a never ending quest to refine and define my personal style. Every fashion aficionado knows that horrible feeling of "I have nothing to wear" or rather my wardrobe no longer inspires me. Every style enthusiast knows about those mental list of items to buy or trends to try that will apparently change your life. However, when shopping, it is almost inevitable that something will catch your eye making you completely forget about the mental list or creating an inspiring, cohesive wardrobe. So with that in mind, I decided to start a little blog series to help me Focus.
Focus is my attempt at focusing my mind on key pieces that will help me to create a more cohesive and versatile wardrobe. As you may know, I'm a sucker for stand out pieces, often falling in love with the item and buying it before realising I have nothing to wear it with. On a student budget, however, this capricious manner of buying is just not acceptable. It's time to focus.
With Spring in full swing (if we're following the calendar and not the weather) and summer just around the corner, the boyfriend/mom jean has to be the first on the list.
The boyfriend/mom jean and I have always been arch enemies, a small waist to larger hip/thigh ratio means these types of jeans often hang of my waist but cling to my thighs - not the nonchalant look I'm going for here - but I am not one to shy away from a challenge (or a decent belt).
The mom/boyfriend jean are versatile wardrobe pieces. They add a little bit of edge but are still easily mixed with other pieces. I envision wearing mine with a flowing kimono, some chunky sandals and a printed leotard in the day, swapping the sandals for a barely there heel for drinks or a casual night out. Now I just need to find the right pair!
