A year ago I bought these stunning black suede mules and I haven't looked back! I was weirdly quite nervous about purchasing them, I think mostly because they aren't really a style I'd usually go towards and they were a bit pricey!
I love them. They are insanely easy to wear. I originally worried about how versatile they were but I honestly wear them with everything! They have now seen me through two springs, summers and autumns. They are a great transitional piece, and I know I'll keep reaching for them this season.
If I just want a casual day outfit, I pair them with my Zara gingham trousers:
They are also a great piece to wear skirts or dresses! I've been loving wearing them with this black suede dress from Mango.
And as the weather is getting colder and if I need to look smart for the office, I have been wearing them with these culotte trousers and gorgeous wrap around shirt style top!

If you want to shop sustainably, check out your local charity shop or look on depop, shpock or any other second hand app - I've seen loads of mules on both!
