I'm doing a very alternative French style look for this month's La Redoute brand ambassador post. This time I took elements of French style and mashed them together to make a look that's, well... not that French at all. But a Breton striped top (someone peel them off me!!) paired with dungarees and these much-lusted-after buckled monk shoes from La Redoute results in a simple, tomboyish outfit to add to my masculine chic arsenal. It couldn't be more different to this recent outfit - talk about a contrast.
I have to point out that these shoes are incredibly comfy - top marks to La Redoute for style and comfort. When I first got them they were so kind to my feet (and I loved them so much) that I just wore them round the house like slippers. Not the tiniest bit of rubbing anywhere - how good is that? And in case you're wondering: I kept my reading glasses on for the photo. The outfit just didn't work without them...!
Anyone else sporting monk shoes (either buckled like mine or lace up)? What are you wearing them with - do share in the comments!
P.S. Don't miss August's brand ambassador post (distressed patchwork jeans and sheer neckline top) or July's (camouflage jacket and Paris tee)!
