I am a clothes finding ninja. {bows slowly}

As we sat down for coffee a couple of weeks ago, my friend Katie said to me “you like looking at websites for children’s clothes, right?” It was disappointing to hear this from a woman who has become a great friend of mine over the last three years (we paid to be each other’s friend we met at NCT classes) as when she said that, I felt like she DIDN’T KNOW ME AT ALL.

friday focus – Donna Wilson for John Lewis

Ugh, it’s Friday. TFIF. This week has been a bit of an up and down one in the LKS house, with stuff that I wouldn’t dare bore you with, otherwise you’d never come back to visit me. And I can’t have that, so I won’t go into any more detail other than to say TFIF and this week is over 🙂

That’s too many for one post (even for me!) so lucky you gets another post from me!. In the meanwhile, I managed to find sooo many more cutesy and cool pairs of shoes and boots, that I felt the shoes deserved their own post, and the boots deserved another, so now there’s going to be a part 3! A veritable trilogy of shoes and boots, if you will! Can you imagine anything any better?!
