Thrift Inspiration....Autumn Classic Must Haves, The Brogue

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend and what a mix of weather we are having at the moment! The sun is out in spurts and it's really quite nice and warm- those extra layers have been held at bay for the foreseeable future. So when layers are not necessarily needed the next logical style step to think of is footwear. After indulging in some skate shoes and wearing these in between trainers and sandals, I was really pleased to find some long lusted after pair of  shoes last week which are ideal for all seasons- the classic black brogue. Here are my picks of the best this season:


Saint Laurent patent leather, £530



TODS, £270


ASOS Millionaire leather brogues, £35


ASOS brogues, £25

Here are my version- they are vintage Loakes, bought as new and unworn in my local Salvation Army charity shop for just £15. Brogues are such a versatile and stylish alternative to a trainer or skate shoe and can so easily smarten up a jeans and jacket combination too:


To what I wore one day last week for a day out in London- my newly thrifted Monsoon blouse in one of my recent posts, some Reiss skinny jeans which were thrifted last year from my local Sue Ryder charity shop for just £1 in their sale and my Primark skate shoes:


I can't believe how comfortable skate shoes can be, if I'd realised I definitely would have bought some in Spring, but better late than never, huh!


Wishing you all a fabulous week ahead and I do thank you for your continued reading, support and comments- they are so much appreciated and I look forward to visiting you as soon as I can!

You look so cool and casual in that outfit, and I love your skate shoes! Not sure I will be wearing brogues though, I'm not leggy or tall so think they look much better on others.

We sell lots of vintage gents' brogues to men and women alike. Jon's a fan although they're not something I'd wear.
Such a pretty blouse. x

Oh Sharon those Brogues you got are amazing, truly gorgeous and well worth the £15! I must confess I have two pairs of skater shoes and have hardly worn them, it's been Birkies all the way for me! x
