As much as I love wearing heels and boots there are times, like mammoth shopping sprees or coffee with the girls that being in heeled shoes all day just doesn’t work. I love wearing ballet flats and have lots of pairs but one thing I have taken to wearing with my long skirts or jeans is trainers or deck shoes.
I have written about my love of Hotter shoes before so when I was given the opportunity to review the Chase trainer I was eager to find a pair that could work with a few different styles. At the moment I adore wearing long pleated skirts as they can be dressed up with a blouse and heels or dressed down for during the day with a t shirt and trainers.
The Chase is available in 4 colours and both standard and extra wide fit. The great thing about them is that although they have laces they also have a zip fastening making them easy to open and quick to wear. The white and pink Chase have shimmer inserts at the sides and the grey has floral pattern insert. I opted for the pink because well, pink and shimmer, what’s not to love!
For the first look I styled them with a long animal print pleated skirt, grey and pink are a great combination and always work well together. A simple grey t shirt and minimal make up made for a relaxed day time look that could be worn for a trip to the shops or visit to the park with the girls.
My second look was pairing them with jeans and shirt, the clean look of blue jeans and white shirt look great with the little pop of colour from the shoes. Great for a casual look for coffee with the girls or school pick up!
I am off to Bongo Bingo next week and have been told it is a very active night so heels are discouraged – I am thinking wrap dress and my Chase trainers, lets hope they bring me luck!

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
