The Power of Shoes and Bags: With a Striped Hobo and Monk Strap Shoes

What really makes you feel like a million bucks on a normal day?  In particular, which part of your wardrobe satisfies you most on the fashion front, on a run of the mill day when you are not dressed up for a special occasion?

For me, the answer would be a fabulous pair of shoes and a gorgeous handbag. In my opinion, shoes and handbags are the power couple of fashion.  Together, they can command such attention that the clothes in between them can pale into insignificance. The fact that shoes and bags are not influenced by our current size, only makes them more attractive and shining stars in our wardrobe.

It was love at first sight with these double monk-strap shoes and the fact that they were navy was the icing on the cake. I am a huge fan of stripes and the beautiful red, white and blue stripes on this hobo along with the sporty strap instantly grabbed my attention. I have paired them with a simple pair of blue jeans and a denim shirt dress with stand-out pockets.  My long-line grandfather cardigan works perfectly with the outfit and adds a touch of pattern to the overall styling.

I hope you enjoy this lookbook and thank you so much for reading.  Have a fabulous weekend ahead!

    1. So glad to hear you liked them! They are probably not available anymore – if the product is still available, I put the link in and it appears in red under ‘clothes and accessories’. Also, I find Massimo Dutti does lovely brogues and oxfords so perhaps they will do another version this year. Thanks for visiting the blog Navneet!
