#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 weeklong challenge: 7 days of Primark shoes! She shared a different look each day, and we got to ogle up some new style inspo. Did you miss it? Read on!

Blogger Nuala Gorham

Since starting Penny and Polaroids, Nuala and her blog have gone from strength to strength - aim high girls, it works! We gave her the task of styling seven pairs of Primark shoes, to get you all psyched and dreaming up your own amazingly affordable wardrobes.

Leopard-Print Shoes

Monday: Leopard-print Sneakers, $8

Tan Lace-Up Flats

Tuesday: Tan Lace-Up Flats, $13

Nuala says, “My style's about basic pieces and neutral hues so I'm crazy about an interesting print shoe. These leopard sneakers are perfect for that and can make any outfit look amazing this spring.” Athleisure always wins it for us!

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

Aqua Sneakers

Wednesday: Sneakers, $15

Ankle Boots

Thursday: Ankle Boots, $29

And for her third day, Nuala went all sporty on us with our bright and happy Aqua sneakers. She says, “While I usually stick with neutral colors for everyday, I cannot resist bold, bright workout wear!”

“I'm totally adoring the harness-and-tassel detailing on these black pointy ankle boots. Ankle boots are my year-round must-have - I love how versatile they are. Suede is a big trend this year so these are absolutely essential.” We couldn’t agree more!

Snake Print Ballerinas

Friday: Snake Print Lace-Up Ballerinas, $13

Fringed Heels

Saturday: Fringed Heels, $26

Nuala says, “These lace-up pointy flats are everywhere for SS16 and I'm loving the snakeskin print on these. I'll be wearing them with my Primark skinnies in spring and cute dresses in the summer. Perfect for casual Friday!”

Ah, the weekend... We all know this is when we can take our hottest shoes for a spin! Nuala says, “I love peep-toe shooties with fringe, so I couldn't resist these for Saturday night dance floor action!”

Fluffy Slippers

Sunday: Slippers, $6

For her final challenge day, Nuala took advantage of the Sunday vibe - and went for our fluffy slippers! She says, “While I have to have heels on a Saturday night, I love my memory foam slippers just as much!”

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