OOTD: The wedge trainer

After posting a pic of my new purchase on twitter I had lots of lovely responses requesting an outfit of the day post featuring my new shoesies.
If you are a regular visitor to this blog you may have noticed that trainers are not exactly a wardrobe staple for me. This may stem back to the fact that I absolutely lived in the trainer/ jeans combo in my teens until I discovered fashion and the fact that actually I could wear anything I wanted, not the same uniform as all my friends. I will be the first to admit that the wedged trainer is a bit of a ridiculous trend, but as soon as I saw the Isabel Marant number I was immediately lusting after them, quite despite myself. So after much umming and indecision I finally decided to purchase the next best thing - meet my new love The Ash Cool Suede Strapped wedge trainers in clay!
Excuse the awkward pose and face in this photo. We were on our way to the cinema and running late so a quick iphone snap on the stairs was all I could coax from the bf (after the dismal attempt below).
I paired my new super comfy trainers with an equally comfy pair of American Apparel disco pants, a vest from Zara and an oversized boyfriend shirt from Topshop.

I got my Ash trainers from Asos for £139 here, but you can also find them on the Ash website here.

Have you given into the wedge trainer trend? What will you be wearing yours with? xxx


  1. I love your outfit. But I don't think I like the wedge trainer.

    I haven't commented here in a long while. But you're looking beautiful btw x

  2. THose are very cute sneakers. My sister just purchased some jeffrey campbell ones with spikes coming out of the back.

  3. You'll definately fit in if you come to Italy...they love their wedge trainers here! (I dont think I've ever seen you in jeans before!)x

  4. I saw the ones they have in River Island when I was shopping the other day. I thought they looked a bit weird at the time but yours look cute on you! Maybe I'll have a closer look next time! x

  5. I love these, been lusting after a pair for a few months now!!! x x

  6. I love the wedge sneakers trend but not all them are so nice like the ashes. I own a pair of Ash Alex and a pair of Steve Madden Hilights and that's all I've been wearing for the past few weeks. They are so comfy and they make me feel and look taller... I usually wear them with skinny jeans or leggings and a chunky over sized sweater. Favorite fall/winter outfit.

  7. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I
    know this is totally off topic but I had to tell
