OLIVE AUBREY WHO ? ? ?


I was really excited when I clapped eye's on this new shoe brand.....




Olive Aubrey shoes have just launched and I know they are going to be oh so popular. I was lucky enough to be gifted these bright yellow Diana Slingback beauties. Then I wondered ? what do you wear with something so bright?.....

 This new shoe brand has been masterminded by Susan Aubrey Cound, a lady who knows her stuff. After looking for something a little different in the form of a lower heeled shoe that was super stylish, comfortable and not your everyday run of the mill boring flat shoe set about designing her own brand. So being inspired by the sixties, Olive Aubrey was born....

 I do love my high heels, but every woman has a couple of pairs of flats, if not all flats in her wardrobe right ? I love everything about them. The vibrant colour, a new fresh design,and  they are so eye catching.  I decided to test drive them on a long walk round the park before lunch to see if they stood up to being comfortable.

But getting back to what I'd wear .....




I chose to wear my new navy culottes with this multi coloured top . Nothing monochromatic here! it's all a bit of a colour clash, but I think it works...



And boy those shoes did not disappoint in the comfy department ! When you think of patent leather, you would imagine it to bit a little stiff. These are super soft, pliable and supple. I felt like I went out in my slippers.



So what do you think of the colour? I was stopped twice on this walk by women asking where I'd got these beautiful shoes from. " Oh there a new brand called Olive Aubrey" I said chuffed with myself. I can tell you ladies, this brand is going to go far. Comfort and great design for women on their feet all day, is winner in my book.

 What else would I wear with these? .....
Before I chose this outfit I was thinking of wearing my lady like black dress or my white cigarette pants. Skinny jeans - coloured or white. A pencil skirt and twinset in winter will be fab. So when I got to thinking about it, there are many colours and outfit choices. I have listed below a couple of other pairs I have my eye's on...

                                           Patti Block Heeled Sandal In Antique Gold



                                             The Jackie Patent White And Gold Pump



                                                      The Diana Patent Blue And Silver

Pop over to Olive Aubrey's site to have a look. There is 15% off your first order when you sign up to the Front Row. Let me know which colour you would choose & how you would wear them, I look forward to hearing from you !
