Shopping my wardrobe and comfortable shoes

Today I want to talk about shopping my wardrobe and comfortable shoes. I keep a small collection of clothes here in France. Often they are pieces that I have worn and loved in the UK and then semi-retired down here. I tend to buy fairly classic good quality clothes. Many of which are several years old. The navy print dress I am wearing above was originally from MarksandSpencer. They still have very similar styles in stock this season. I have put a selection below.

The shoes I am wearing are from Hotter. These are the first pair of shoes that I have tried from this brand. They were gifted to me to test. I wore them for the drive down to Grimaud. The journey is about twelve-hours long in total which we divide over two days. Sometimes my feet tend to swell on long car journeys which means that any shoes I am wearing tend to rub after a few hours. These lace-up shoes were so comfortable that I hardly noticed that I was wearing any shoes at all.

Shopping my wardrobe and comfortable shoes:

I am wearing the Gravity 11 lace up trainer. They have the comfort of a trainer yet look smart enough to be worn with a dress as shown above. It can be hard to find shoes that look good and fit well. We all have different needs when it comes to shoes. Whether you prefer a wide or slim fit there is something for everybody with Hotter’s precision fit.

I also found these shoes excellent for negotiating the uneven cobbled streets in our village. Here I have teamed my shoes with a pair of wide-leg cotton trousers originally from Cos. If you like wide-leg trousers I think that Cos offers the best selection. My light green sweater is many years old originally from Jigsaw. Scarf and hat from St.Tropez market.

Above you can see a close up of the shoes. They are slightly perforated at the front and have a very thick sturdy sole. We took this photo outside my friend’s house.
