Then I was dandering through Next last week returning a rug (WHY oh why is is so hard to get a nice round rug?!!) and I spotted these...
Three things caught my eye straight away. Firstly, they are cream and I'm drawn to everything cream. I have way too much of it in my wardrobe. So I'm wondering, would a cream converse style trainer be a good idea..could it funk up my cream-heavy wardrobe?
After a few days of trying on with labels attached, I decided Bank Holiday Monday was decision day - with photos. First up, I tried them with indigo Maison Scotch jeans.

Trainers - Next
Now I know readers tell me that Next footwear can be a bit hit and miss but I do think that things have improved greatly in the past couple of seasons and these trainers are testament to this. Size-wise, I bought the 39 and they're perfect...a tiny bit snug on my wider foot but nothing a few wears won't sort.
Only gripe? The laces!
I've clearly been spoiled by my slip-on trainers for too long...
