Happy Monday Sugars!
This post is a little bit exciting (ok maybe very exciting)! I received some news a few weeks ago that got my heart pumping and i’ve been dying to share it with you. The news boosted my blogging spirits and made me scream ‘o yes girl, get it’ in my best American impression ever. You see, there is often a slight look down and nose sniff when one mentions the words ‘i’m a blogger’, some people get it while others are like ‘oh gosh not another one’. So to see a fellow blogger, pushing the boundaries and collaborating with a brand that has worked with the likes of Halle Berry is really motivating. We are no longer just bloggers, we are proving to be professionals in our own right with something to say, with influence and some darn amazingly creative klout.
Lets take this time to congratulate Caroline Blomst on her collaboration with Deichmann. Caroline is a beautiful Swedish blogger who has been causing a bit of a stir in the world of street-style, she is highly rated and quite loveable, attracting around 1.3million readers, find her blog here. The collaboration with Deichmann – Europe’s largest online shoe retailer – see’s the launch of an exclusive 7 pair capsule collection, including flats, heels and trainers (sneakers for my American sugars).
The Caroline Blomst for Diechmann collection is a mix of fancy lace shoe boots and casual trainers, making the line accessible to everyone, from those who like a bit of elegance, to the comfy tomboy, as well as the casual stepper; we can all get in on some of the shoe action.
Staying true to trend, we see some pixel and graphic print thrown in the mix with some lace. My personal favourites would be the pixel print trainers and the lace peep toe shoe boots. I love how Caroline decided not to go wild with the designing and keep things simple, allowing the shoes to fit in perfectly with the Deichmann look and feel but stay true to the laid back rock style she is so famous for.
L-R: Cut-out Peep Toe High Front £27.99, Loafer £17.99
I had the pleasure of getting a closer look and trying out 4 pairs. They are comfortable, sturdy and best of all, they are affordable. You can not go wrong with trainers walking in at £22.99 and sexy lace shoe boots strutting through at an amazing £27.99. The entire collection is priced from £17.99 for the flats – £27.99 for shoe boots, your credit card and bank manager will not be mad at you but you may be the envy of some of your friends.
We all love the high-street for the ability to shop style and trend without the high price tag and this collection doesn’t let us down; we get lace, graphic print, monochrome, peep toe, studs, T-Bar, gold, buckles and sports-luxe; all trends that could be seen on the runway throughout the Spring/Summer ’14 fashion weeks.
Dig out your favourite pair of denim jeans, midi skirts or leather pants and pair them with your favourite Blomst shoe, for work, school or party! …or you could be like me, pop on a mini skirt and let your legs and shoes do the

You don’t often see such a nice variety with only 7 pairs but I think Caroline nailed it. The collection can be shopped now here, it went live today!
