As well as searching for a new cut of trouser, I've also been on the look out for new trainers. I'd originally set my heart on the khaki suede Stan Smiths. They're more beige than green in real life. However it wasn't to be as I couldn't find a 5.5 anywhere, my perfect Adidas size.
And then hurrah, I found these in Marks & Spencer which I liked rather a lot. Except they're not leather so I walked away. Right back to the car park in fact. And then I thought sod it, if they fit and they're comfortable, I'm getting them. So I went back. Smelly feet is a small price to pay (I don't have smelly feet really, well not yet).

And do you know what, they're really rather comfy, trying them out today and so far so darn good.
Of course a seal of approval from the son was required and as I walked in to his bedroom to open his blinds (at 12.30pm but we'll skip over that point), he lifted his head from the pillow and said 'nice crepes Mum'. Bingo, they're keepers. We won't tell him that they're not leather and they're from good ol' Marks & Sparks. Sometimes mums have to be economical with the truth.
Now the question is, could I get away with the other colourways too? The gold are lush but I already have a pair of platform trainers from last year that are very similar.

By the way, the pink I'm wearing are much less pinky-pink in real life, more of a nude colour, just the way I like them 👍
