Super Superga

By Sarah Redman

The sun is officially out and for once it doesn’t seem to be going away. Yay.

So I have take the bold step of putting my boots away – even if they are still within easy reach and out come the summer shoes. I’m that person who is permanently cold even when the sun is shining so I have left the sandals alone but instead have dug out the Superga.

My Superga are only a year old but already looking a bit tatty, covered in an array of scuffs, alcohol and nail polish (don’t ask) – I really should take care of the more! My lovely pair are their 2750 Cotu Classic’s in grey sage, retailing at £45.00. These shoes were a great purchase last summer, I can’t believe I’ve never had a pair before they are so comfy and go with everything.

My lovely shoes – you know i’m rocking the spotty socks…

The brand Superga, known as ‘the people’s shoes of Italy’ is over 100 years old and focuses mainly on its classic 2750 style, with various remixes and fashion designs each season. It also has an impressive celebrity backing with everyone from Alex Chung through to this seasons Suki Waterhouse endorsing or wearing a pair.

So in true Sarah style I am eyeing up another pair and I thought I would share my top three contenders for this summer with all our lovely readers:

Superga 2750 Cotu Classic – Dark Bordeaux – £45.00

Secondly, these are just because a bordeaux or burgundy is just a very me colour – so I just love them.

0bc99736e98aa04151bc1febb074274dSuperga 2750 Cotu Classic – Fresh Salmon – £45.00

Lastly, I’m in the summer frame of mind and this fresh salmon hue is a great way to add some colour in your wardrobe even if you are not ready to let go of your jumpers. It’s also a really fun colour!

What do you think of my top three, do you like their classic styles or is it their metallics or animal print ranges for you? Let us know and leave a comment below, Tweet us @thesarahsblog or post on our Facebook page

By Sarah Redman This is a concept, that to be honest, I never liked. The higher the better, besides i like my legs in ‘Standing Shoes’. However, saying this I was wondering through TK Maxx the other day and came across the … Continue reading

Spring / Summer 2013 Style Guide: Boden – Great British Style

By Sarah Redman

Boden - Great British Style

Boden – Great British Style

Loving this brand at the moment, having grown up with my mum wearing it most summers in France, I feel at home in its comfortable chic style.

Having accepted a few hammy downs recently (student budget) – personally i prefer to call it ‘vintage clothes my mum bought when she had more money than i probably ever will’… has a bit more of a ring to it don’t you think? I was happy to see this Jersey Maxi Dress (WH504) – £89.00 in their spring /summer range for 2013.

This style is so easy to wear and has been used for a similar dress a few seasons ago (vintage mum dress), last summer I wore with gold  sandals and a floppy hat, never belting as it is too much on the print – however with this SS13 number, there are two plain versions  which would work perfectly with a thin metallic belt, like this ASOS Metallic Aztec Metal Keeper Super Skinny Waist Belt – £6.00. Hey – you’ll have already bought the dress give your purse strings a break… besides we all love ASOS and aztec metal print is just a bonus!

Or if you are going all out Boden I suggest the following to mix and match as you wish:

  • Floppy Felt Hat (AD126) – £39.00
  • Metal Disk Necklace (AK212) – £29.00
  • Peep Toe Espadrilles (AR576) – £59.00 to £79.00
  • Chelsea Bag (AM170) – £149.00
  • Cat’s Eye Shades (AV063) – £49.00
  • Suede Demi-Wedges (AR574) – £69.00 (Please chose the bright blue if teeming with the black maxi – it’s summer – you can’t be head to toe black, not even in the evenings! Show a little skin or get your brights on)
  • Boho Boots (AZ162) – £110.00 (To be worn in England – where summer is never really summer) #TheSarahsLove #WeWant

Boden always have great summer essentials, for when it’s too hot to think of something ‘super awesome, totally chic, fashionable and now’ to wear – because seriously who has the time? I will be sporting a few pieces from them in my summer wardrobe for those days when i just feel like minimal accessorizing.

One more added bonus to Boden – If you are a first time buyer they will send you a FREE scarf worth £19.

My thoughts: It would be rude not to buy really…
