Isn’t it great that the weather is cooling down and we can switch our sandals for loafers?  I have a love for these flat sole kicks, something comfortable to walk down the street in whilst still looking stylish.  I found a great pair of patent monochrome flats New Look last week, very Bugsy Malone with the black and white contrast, great for smartening up the simplest of outfits.

I picked these up in New Look at The Dubai Mall and they cost under a hundred dirhams.  Yes you read that correctly, they’re practically free! - and with that philosophy you can perhaps see why I spend so much on shoes (whoops). 

To be honest, the leather is very hard and initially I bought these as a fashion piece and wholly expected them to give me blisters – but I am delighted to report that I made it nine-to-five in these without a single red mark or cut.  So far, I have styled these with black mock dresses and bold pink accessories for work and am looking forwards to trying a denim/shirt/trench combo come winter.  For the more fashion courageous, I think these would be the perfect loafer to wear with lace dolly ankle socks.
