Red Superga

Good Friday to you! Hope you are getting your bellies ready for the chocolate fest that will be Sunday!

I am super excited to feel sick. I am going to eat Malteaser bunnies, Mini Eggs and Lindt Eggs to my heart’s content. And of course the lovely bakes Natalie will be arranging!

We’re in Scotland this weekend with dad’s side of the fam…but thought I’d share some outfits with you seeing as it’s Friday.

 

So thought I’d round up two outfits wearing my red Superga. As you can see this is the toilet at my work…very nice. I always take these pictures really quickly before someone comes in so they don’t think I’m a FREAK! (Most people already do think that anyway…)

I’ll normally wear trainers on a Friday as it’s ‘Dress down Friday’ and just try and be as comfortable as possible! I would say red trainers are definitely a must. I really like a red converse as well…but there’s nothing wrong with just buying some pumps from Primark or H&M for the same effect.

Casual Fridays

So most of what I’m wearing doesn’t belong to me. You must think I’m a massive pikey. Well I’m not. My mum’s a carer and she got given some clothes from one of the old men she was looking after. FYI – HE’S NOT DEAD. So one of the things in the bag was this lovely big jumper.

I just wanted to be cosy and comfortable today, so this jumper fits the bill perfectly. My hair was being a big frizzy shit ball this morning so I’ve tied one of his handkerchiefs round my head to hold it back.

The jeggings are MINE (you’ll be pleased to know) and so are my Superga trainers/pumps whatever you want to call them. Socks belong to my boyfriend who is starting to moan about my ‘borrowing’ haha!

Have a good Friday whatever you get up to! I’m excited about my sofa.

Superga

I’m embarrassed it has been nearly a month since I last posted. Excuses excuses excuses – here are mine: I went on holiday to Spain for a week and a half (it takes a few days to get settled back in), I got very busy at work (someone left so I got given some of her responsibilities) then I got ill for a few days…I’ve been busy on the weekends for friend’s birthdays, a university reunion and spending a night double dating in Southend. IT ALL ADDS UP!! I’m not exactly the best at keeping record of these outings. I feel like a pleb taking lots of pictures and posing for the camera but it’s something I’m going to have to bite the bullet and get used to!!!

 

 

Let’s rewind to August bank holiday weekend…I was in London for a friend’s birthday and Nottinghill carnival – which was fabulosoo the drum and bass soundsystem was sick!! (Yes I do talk like a hood rat in real life) I bought some Superga trainers that weekend from their Covent Garden store. £45 – it’s quite expensive and know I could find a cheaper pair online, but I couldnt wait! I needed them for Nottinghill. I couldnt wear my woven leather pumps as they would have got murkled. I have wanted a pair of Superga for a while now. I was just going to buy a £2.50 pair of white pumps from Primark but even the size 8 was too small! The thin sole would have worn down a hole in no time anyway. I’ve had to throw away 2 pairs of Bensimon pumps because they had holes in. Not too happy about it considering they are supposed to be really expensive (I worked in a shoe shop that had them in the sale so I got them super cheap).

 

Bensimon | £46.90

 

That’s the reasoning behind my black Vans I bought years ago. Thick soles you can trust. I still LOVE Vans but it makes me feel sick seeing the amount of people that have them now. They have gone viral!!! Its understandable as they look good, are comfortable and good quality. But SO COMMON. Eurgh. So Superga are less common, and still comfortable. I’m yet to see how their quality matches up. My boyfriend ended up getting a pair in a different style for £20 in the sale!! Jeaaalous. Here are some photos from the bank holiday weekend and some with me and my Superga.

 

  Not bad after carnival!

 

 

Sad but true, we are a Superga couple.
