There are some occasions when less is more, and (in my case) sometimes more is more... quite often when I'm putting an outfit together I just fancy piling it all on. However, this hadn't actually been my intention here but I love how much busier it looks in the photos than it did in the mirror.
The outfit started with these faaaaabulous red and grey court shoes with a chunky heel - I've totally been embracing the block heel trend this year and these are no exception! If you look closely you'll see that they tick so many trend boxes: blocked heel, colour blocking, pointed toe. Not only that but there's a metallic chrome strip (see below) that continues on the inside of the heel. If that's not a statement heel, I don't know what is.
The shoes were from UK shoe company Pavers, and I have to commend them for such a comfortable pair of heels (I went shopping in them for a few hours and my feet were fine - first wear). The block heel does help with comfort, and I'm always thankful for a trend that's comfy as well as stylish. I love the fact that the red, grey and black pick out the colours in my blazer - this is me at my autumnal happiest!
Are you a 'less is more' or 'more is more' sort of person? And have you found the block heel trend is for you (like I have)? Do you find it makes them more comfortable - let me know in the comments...
