Step Into Spring

Melbourne's weather has finally warmed up a little. Which means I need some motivation to show my extremely pale winter legs, hello new shoes!

I bought these cork wedges at Aldo last week. I went in only to say hi to my friend who was working...but she's a good sales assistant and I walked away with these. Luckily even though they were new in they only cost $59.95.

I was deciding between the Aldo ones and the Sportsgirl Paige Wedge. Do you prefer cork or espadrilles? I still can't decide. I might buy the Sportsgirl ones too.
I wore them with this outfit to work, they're high enough that I can wear longer skirts but not too high that my feet get sore (well I can last about a 5 hour shift). Will be perfect with all the summer dresses coming in.

This post is also my attempt at showing Estelle from Ash & Belle Blog how to wear a 'mullet skirt' without it looking horrible! haha I hope I achieved that, I know it's not everyone's thing though.

Since this was a work outfit, every piece is Sportsgirl apart from the shoes.
Wearing - archers blouse, asymmetrical skirt in black (sold out online but still available in store), washed vintage owl necklace, new inlay leaf ring and subtle mixed set of bracelets (both available in store)

ps. I've been sick all this week so hopefully you can't tell in these photos x


  1. I'm loving your skirt!! Its so cute and those wedges are adorable!!! Would you like to follow each other?



  2. yes I'm already following you too :)
    thanks for the comment. This was my first pair of aldo shoes, I'll have to go back now.

  3. I'm following you too!!! Aldo is amazing! I love their shoes, especially when they go on sale! :]

  4. your skirt is fabulous!!!

  5. I like a "mullet skirt" although that name is not flattering! I think the shoes are too similar, so you probably don't need both. Do the Sportsgirl ones come in another colour?

  6. thanks :)
    haha yeah I know I don't need both, I'm so indecisive and sometimes that means I buy more than I should...
    these sportsgirl ones don't come in another colour but theres similar ones coming in the cork later this year but with cobalt blue straps! I love that colour.

  7. Great new shoes and I LOVE your hair! So pretty!
