I LOVE Skaters!

Hello Lovelies. Welcome back to Beautiful You!

So as you all know I am blogging every single day this week to celebrate my blog's first birthday last week. I will leave a link to my giveaway below which is open for another week seen as I am blogging everyday! Anyway on to the actually post...

The title of this blog post sort of makes it sound like I am going to be talking about boys who ride skateboards but unfortunately I'm just going to be talking about shoes! I know these types of shoes have loads of different names, plimsolls, slips on and so on but I call them skaters so hey ho!

I bought my first pair a while back when I went shopping in Cardiff with Abi and Harley, we bought the blue and white chequered ones from Topshop in the sale for £10 which I thought was such a bargain! You do have to wear them in around the house to make them comfortable but I have worn mine so much that they are the best shoes ever, I wear them with those 'invisible socks' so that they don't start to smell!

Then the second pair I bought were also from Topshop in the sale and those are the pink floral ones, I know these are a bit out there but with a plain cami top and jeans they actually look really nice! These were even more of a steal at only £3, they were reduced further at the till and I literally could not believe it! I haven't worn these quite as much but for £3 I couldn't really say no!

Lastly, I bought the black pair from Next last week for £22 and I can tell that these are going to be a staple for me in A/W. One good thing about the skaters from Next is that they have cushion pads around the back of your ankle where they usually rub so they are the comfiest shoes ever! I have been loving Gabby from Velvet Ghost's fashion sense at the moment and I love when she wears these shoes with tights as I never would have thought to so I am definitely going to be trying that out when it gets a bit colder.

I know this post is slightly different from normal but I am trying to branch out into fashion more so let me know if you liked it or not and if you would like to see more! As I said in my post on Friday, I am going to be blogging everyday this week, this being a first of many so keep your eye peeled for more coming in the week. I hope you all had a lovely weekend and here's to a great week!
