Shoes: Lusting after chunky shoes from Shelly's

Hi guys,
Spring has sprung which means it's time for thoughts to turn to pretty sandals and floaty summer dresses: and when I saw these chunky block heels from Shelly's I knew they'd be just perfect for clomping along the sea front in, ice cream in hand, whilst wearing a floral tea dress.

Of course in reality, I'll be spending the bank holiday weekend in jeans and flip flops with a pot of paint and pureed carrot in hand. But a girl can dream! And right now my dream is of bottle green heeled shoes.

It was the colour of these that grabbed my attention first, followed by the chunky wooden block heel. I love chunky heels because they help make your legs look slimmer: and when the sun comes out and the leggings come off I need all the leg-lengthening help I can get!

These shoes have a very retro '70s feel which is the perfect antidote to the paired back, minimalist shoes that are so in vogue at the minute. I'm really not a fan of minimalism: my motto is that over-the-top is so much more fun!

These beauties come in at £110.99 and you can buy them here. What do you think?

I really like them. The colour is good and I much prefer chunky styles to delicate pretty stilettos.
