Clarks Anniston Vale Outfit – Competition

Clarks Anniston Vale Outfit – Competition

White shirt and ripped jeans

Recently I’ve been talking a lot about how I’ve been wanting to downsize my wardrobe and invest in good quality items that I can get plenty of wear out of – less is more as they say.

These jeans were a recent purchase and so far I’ve been getting plenty of wear out of them but the star of the show with this outfit were definitely my Clarks Anniston Vale loafers.

Clarks Anniston Vale loafers

I’m no stranger to Clarks shoes and over this past year I’ve accumulated a number of different styles, each which I am glad to say I’ve been getting plenty of wear out of. I think there is often a misconception with Clarks, as many people are often surprised after they compliment my shoes and I tell them where they are from. Yes Clarks are known for their comfort and quality but they should be known for their style too. Whoever said you can’t have style and comfort.

I’d been eyeing up these particular loafers since I spotted them at Clarks A/W press day earlier this year. I’d spotted them in black and a gorgeous burgundy shade and knew I’d have to have a pair. I was over the moon when I was given the opportunity not to only have a pair but to choose my own unique colourway for them too! I’d spotted the brushed animal print on another pair of shoes, so chose that to go on the top part and there’s something so classic about patent black, so that made up my mind for the rest of the shoe. I excitedly ripped open the box when they arrived and I could not be more pleased with them.

    I’ve been trying to downsize my wardrobe too, and stick to versatile pieces. I love your Clarks, they are such a great subtle pop! I don’t usually wear leopard print but those are fantastic! <3

    You look gorgeous! I love simple outfits like this. I’ve definitely been trying the ‘less is more’ approach to shopping and while I probably still shop more than I should I’ve got a lot more classic pieces in my wardrobe now. And Clarks are so good now, their loafers and brogues are the best! x

    Already following you on Instagram, just followed Clarke’s shoes. I swear by them!!! One pair of desert boots and 3 pairs of the shoes!!! #neverleavehomewithoutthen

  30. October 16, 2015 / 9:52 am

    They are such stunning loafers! I love the hint of leopard print in them too. I feel like the last time I went into my local Clarks was when I was in primary school, so quite sometime. If I’d have known, definitely would have made a pit stop in there much sooner.
