Shoes

Model and blogger Aoife Walsh shares some insights into her life as a lover of shoes!

A typical day in my shoes involves a whole lot of craziness with a little bit of fashion thrown in for good measure. I couldn’t say I have just one typical day as my work week varies hugely. Working as a fashion influencer means I’m usually out of the house most of the day so I need an outfit and shoes that could take me from day to night.

My day usually starts out with a breakfast beauty event followed by meetings with Brand Marketing Executives and PR Agencies. The afternoon I would squeeze in an outfit shoot followed by an hour or two of admin and emails at some of my favourite cafes in Dublin city centre. I top off the day usually with an Evening Launch event or Spring/Summer Fashion Show. With all of this I’ll be getting my photo taken for the press photographers so I always want to look my best and my shoes are a very important part of that.

For me shoes are one of the most crucial parts of a well put together outfit. When I feel I’ve got my shoes right it’s almost like I instantly feel taller, more confident and ready to take on the day!

The shoes I’ve chosen are a Carvela open toe white and gold sandal. They’re quite a glitzy sandal but represent my personality completely. The strapping creates a super flattering and feminine feel to the shoe. I adore anything with a bit of sparkle too so I’m completely sold! I’m quite an outgoing and girlie person so I think these shoes are a perfect match for me.

I’m getting married next year and right in the midst of my Wedding planning at the moment, which is so exciting. I can see myself wearing these shoes a lot over the next while and styling them up differently for all occasions. I think I will wear these heels with a pair of white jeans and cream jumper for meetings with my Wedding Planner & suppliers or paired with a floral sundress for Wedding dress shopping over the summer. They are such a neutral tone and dress up any outfit, the possibilities are endless!
