#PrimarkShoeDiary with Nuala Gorham

Fact: you can never have too many shoes. That’s why we were super-excited to welcome award-winning blogger Nuala Gorham (Penny and Polaroids) for a week-long challenge: 7 days of Penneys shoes! Each day, she shared a different look, and we got to ogle some new style inspiration. Did you miss it? Read on!

Since starting Penny and Polaroids, Nuala and her blog have gone from strength to strength- aim high, ladies, it’s possible! We assigned her the task of styling seven pairs of Penneys shoes, to get you all inspired and dreaming up your own amazingly affordable wardrobes.

leopard print shoes

Monday: Leopard-print Trainers, €7/$8

tan lace flat shoes

Tuesday: Tan Lace-up Flats, €11/$13

Nuala says, “My style revolves around basic styles and neutral hues so I adore an interesting print shoe. These leopard design trainers are just perfect for that and will make any outfit look amazing this spring.” Athleisure always wins in our eyes!

Nuala says, “I love teaming these tanned lace-up flats with ripped jeans and nautical stripes for an effortless look.” Isn’t this perfect for the transition from spring to summer?

aqua trainers

Wednesday: Trainers, €13/$15

ankle boots

Thursday: Ankle Boots, €25/$29

And for her third day, Nuala took a sporty stance with our bright and cheery aqua trainers. She says, “While I tend to stick to neutral colours for everyday wear, I can't resist bold and bright workout wear!”

Nuala says, “I adore the harness and tassel detailing of these black pointed ankle boots. Ankle boots are a staple for me all year round as I love how versatile they are. Suede is a big trend this year so these are a must-have.” We couldn’t agree more!

snake print ballerinas

Friday: Snake Print Lace-up Ballerinas, €11/$13

fringed heels

Saturday: Fringe heels, €21/$26

Nuala says, “These lace-up pointed flats are everywhere for SS16 and I adore the snakeskin print of these. I'll be wearing them with my Penneys skinnies in spring and cute dresses through the summer months. Perfect for a casual Friday!”

Ah, the weekend! We all know this is when the show-off shoes can come out! Nuala says, “I love peep-toe shoe boots plus some fringe so I couldn't resist these for some Saturday night dancefloor action!”

fluffy slippers

Sunday: Slippers, €5/$6

For her final challenge day, Nuala took advantage of it being a Sunday, with our fluffy slippers! She says, “While I love heels on a Saturday night - I love my memory foam slippers just as much!”

A week of back-to-back Penneys shoes- did you love it as much as us? We can’t wait to see you sharing some shoe styles on #PRIMANIA! Keep an eye on Nuala's Instagram for more of her styling tips and lifestyle blogging, and check out her website. Thanks Nuala!
