Trainers & A Tiny Clutch - Throwback Thursday



Today's post is a quick appreciation and throwback post to two statement pieces in my wardrobe that I often run to if I need something to make my simple outfit pop.

Last year I was very lucky to receive these beautiful trainers and its matching clutch bag from Ted Baker as a 'well done you passed your A Levels' gift. (*Side note I know some people don't receive gifts/think it's gimmicky and I'm not one to preach or scream for pity, but I had had a very difficult 12-18 months and honestly leaving sixth form was more than enough- I'm still grateful and I probably would have purchased them myself, my family just got around to it before I did!*)

The clutch bag is a rectangular shape made up of two compartments separated with a zip in the middle. It is small, and I can fit my essentials in comfortably- although I will often choose to carry my phone so that it doesn't stretch as well as there being room in the bag still! 

The trainers are made up of a combination or leather and fabric, and in my opinion this is what makes them so versatile, as they are easily paired with jeans for a daytime look, or can be paired with a skirt/crop trouser for something more formal. They are also super comfy and I have found the more I have worn them they have naturally bonded to my feet making every future where even comfier. 

Naturally, I also became obsessed with the floral and citrus print, and as the two statement colours of pink and yellow 'clash' with the neutral black background I knew that these colours would work perfectly all year round.

Sadly I don't think this specific print is available anymore, however every season Ted Baker kills it when it comes to prints (they seriously know how to make a poor student like myself even poorer!) and also always having stock in clutches and matching trainers.

Be sure to have a look- I've already got my eye on my next pairing...
