In today’s post I wanted to share with you the shoes I’ve been enjoying wearing to the office now that I’ve been back for a few months. And while back in my 20s I used to traipse (…or rather, clomp) around in my 10cm+ high heels in the office, aside from the fact that they weren’t the most practical of choices, I’ve found that they’re just not really necessary anymore. A low-to-mid heel works just fine and they’re comfortable enough to walk around in all day and give that extra bit of height.
In this post, I’m going to share three styles of shoes that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed wearing recently.

Sarah Flint Perfect Pumps
It should come as no surprise that I kick off my list of favourite work shoes with these pumps considering how often they’ve featured on my Instagram feed lately! You can read about all the incredible features of the shoe in my comprehensive review having given my Taupe-coloured Perfect Pump 85 a good go. But in short, I love the shoe so much that I’ve since added the Black Suede version to my collection in the exact same style! It’s packed with considered features such as anatomical arch support and extra padding for comfort while being an aesthetically beautiful shoe. It’s the perfect work shoe.

The Fold Isola Pumps
Another pair of my favourite work shoes are these croc-embossed leather heels are absolutely divine. They’re an elegant take on a loafer featuring a statement point and a very walkable 45mm heel. There’s foam padding in the toe and a gel insert in the heel so they feel lovely and spongey when you’re walking. Aside from being comfortable, the Italian craftsmanship is impeccable and they’re made from a lush croc-embossed beige leather. I’ve had no trouble matching these heels with all the neutrals in my wardrobe, but I especially love how they look with navy.

Nicholas Kirkwood Beya Loafers
I added these loafers to my collection late last year having had them on my wish list for the longest time. While they cost a pretty penny (which is why I was hesitant to pull the trigger for so long), the wait was very much worth it. They’re exceptional quality loafers and I’ve got a ton of use out of them, particularly to the office when I want to keep things casual, but still polished. The loafers made of grained calfskin leather with a gold-tone plaque at the beveled heel. They were comfortable from the get-go and elevate the most basic of outfits putting them right up there with my favourite work shoes. I’m very keen to add different colours to my collection!
