I'd been keeping my eye out for the release date of the Orla Kiely for Clarks collection since they announced their collaboration last year, but when they were put up for sale a few weeks ago they didn't include international postage - I assume because Clarks wanted to keep all the Orla Kiely loveliness to themselves* and not share it with Australian Orla lovers.
*Not actual reason, I just made that up
But with thanks to my sister-from-another-mister Nicole, I was able to have a pair forwarded from the UK to me and when they arrived I put together a little outfit to wear to work to compliment my adorable new shoes!
Jumper - Supre
Blouse (collar only shown) - Top Shop
Mini Skirt - Self made
I'm so in love with them - but after a long day, they really did hurt my feet a lot sadly. Mainly along the top of my foot - under the navy strap where the vamp ends there seems to be a fold of fabric that keeps pressing into my foot. My feet were a bit tender afterwards, but once the leather stretches I think they'll be ok.
All day I walked around staring at my feet - colleges kept asking me if I was ok, and I would tell them happily - I'm looking at my new shoes!
My birthday is coming up in just over two weeks and I asked my boyfriend to buy my the navy pair, but sadly they are sold out! Oh well! I have one and that can be enough for now
I know 60s and 70s style shoes can sometimes look chunky and ugly to some people, but the block heel and bright colours are exactly what I love about this style of shoe. If I ever save up enough money, I'd like to get a custom pair made from Milk and Honey shoes in patent green leather - but for now I'll just stare are all these lovely block-heeled babes

Which one of these do you like the best? Are you a fan of colourful shoes with a sensible heel?
Enjoy the rest of the week fabulous people!
