Details: Did someone say trainers?

On Saturday I made the conscious decision to introduce more colour into my life. I love a good monochrome look but, according to my mother, there are only so many grey jumpers allowed in one's wardrobe.

I came across this jumper/sweatshirt in Zara (I can't find it online yet) and fell in love. It's not necessarily my usual style, but it's my two favourite colours (after grey, obviously) and so it came home with me.

In keeping with things that aren't my usual style, the other week I purchased a pair of trainers. Shock horror. I'm the kind of person for whom trainers never see the light of day. I do own a pair for the gym, but considering I've not stepped foot in one for almost a year, they don't get a lot of wear.

Never have I looked at my ankles in such detail.

I came across these ones whilst I was out looking for loafers. These are definitely not loafers, but I really liked them. Me. I liked trainers. Who'd have thought?! The cork heel definitely played a part in swaying me. Plus, y'know, they're grey.

Don't worry. Next week I'll be back to chelsea boots and breton stripes.
