Leopard Inspiration from Mildred and some thrifted flat shoes

For UK viewers on ITV3, there is currently a double daily dose of the wonderful 70s sitcom George and Mildred-one in the morning and one about five in the afternoon.

It never fails to make me laugh and I love seeing what outfit Mildred has to offer. After my leopard print post earlier this week, I had to show these pictures of her, resplendent in her leopard print best-I would love to find a vintage leopard print dress and I love how she has styled it with a faux fur leopard print stole on top!!

At the boot sale on Tuesday I was pleased to find some flat shoes-I found some mum style leather sandals-Clark Springers, which will be perfect for wearing with some denim this summer

And for a less frumpy look, I picked up these Topshop tan studded leather Gladiators, ideal for wearing with all my Summer dresses

So thats a couple of items now ticked off the Summer wishlist-I still want to get some black strappy flat sandals and some gold flat sandals if possible.

Whats on your Summer wishlist?

I loved Yootha Joyce as Mildred, I was watching George & Mildred last Saturday and she was wearing the most tremendous leopard print cape with a white collar, diamonte brooch and white stilettoes. What an icon.
Love both pairs of sandals, I've been after flatties at the car boot but keep coming back with skyscrapers. xxx

Ahh, Ms. Mildred looks fab and she always did know that leopard would be stylish forever! Great choice of sandals - especially love the Topshop ones! I love waering flat sandals in summer too. I think I need to stock up on more.

I don't know this show but I'm going to YouTube it!

And my Summer wish list is full of flower skirts and capris pants.

I LOVE her style!! Fabulous.

I am trying to find some mid-heels and wedges for summer: being a bird of extremes, I have sky high and flats and little in between!

Mildred what a legend!

Summer shopping is always such fun.

That rings a bell - I think my Dad used to watch that series when I was a kid - her fashion icon-ness completely passed me by then - what I would do for a leopard print dress like that!

I haven't been in a store in forever! I better see what I want for spring before the fall stuff is out!

Definitely no leopards on my list! Am looking for a Rieker sandals European size 39, preferably light coloured - that's on top of my list at the moment.

I love her leopard ensemble.

Dear Sharon, I adored Yootha Joyce as Mildred. What a great leopard outfit!

I desperately need something sensible to walk in, I can't live in Fitflops.

Your shoes look wonderfully comfortable xx

Winnie said...

Brilliant, all that leopard! You definitely need a big personality to match that ensemble!

I loved George and Mildred! Love your new sandal bargains, I'm on the hunt for some yellow sandals for summer. xx

Ive never seen it will have to watch out for it now. I have to admit I have a real issue with sandals I just cant find a pair I like enough to buy and I cant envision any outfits with them either - I can for other people just not me, weird I know!

MyStyle said...

Hi everybody-really love all your comments, thanks so much as they are much appreciated! xx
