Free 5.0 – Nike
Picked up a pair of Nike Free’s the other day. I’ve worked out in so many different styles of trainers, Air Max Ones, Thea’s, 90’s; you name it! So many people have told me it’s important to wear proper footwear when running so I thought it was time to get round to picking some up. I’ve worn these a couple of times in the gym now and they are unbelievably comfortable. The hint of glitter on the side panels make them a little cute too. Should have bought them sooner but hey ho, you live and you learn :)
A year ago you would have not seen me wearing trainers outside of the gym, but it must have been Adiyam’s influence and I have finally given in for this cute Lacoste pair. They have this lovely white leather so don’t feel sporty at all. Can’t wait for summer so I can pair these babies with denim shorts! Find them here
Better late than never but never late is better I know, but, ‘it’s been a while’ is an understatement! The good girls here at the Coup have done a sterling job keeping you Coups and Coupettes up to date and ahead in this wonderful world we call Fashion. However, just as the old seasons fade and the new ones bloom, I’m back to brighten up the days.
Although I’ve been away, the shopping never stops! On many occasions, I tried and tried and tried to resist temptation and stay clear of the high street. It worked, until I saw this black velvet two tone bomber jacket with leather sleeves from Zara.
It was paid for and packaged (all in my head) before I had even tried it on! It was a ‘must have’ as soon as saw it.
I wore a pair of black ripped skinny jeans from Zara to compliment the bomber jacket.
Now finding these Orange Patrick Mohr Kx1 (sold out everywhere) trainers was like trying to mine gold in England. Search upon search, avenue upon avenue and one lead after the other, I kept coming up with nothing. I finally got my hands on a pair and parted with a lot of my money but it was money well spent! Last but not least, I accessorized with a Michael Kors black chronograph silicone strap watch.
It’s good to be back.

So, these are the new trainers that everyone seems to be caving into. It’s funny because they aren’t actually new. No, not at all: they were actually all the rage when I was in secondary school, a whole 10 years ago…! But then, as always, the trend disappeared and like clockwise came around again.
They are a little usual in the sense that they aren’t the ‘cutest’ pair of trainers. But hey, what is ‘cute’? And comfort-wise, my oh my! I love them; they’re my new go-to pair when I’m on the run. They are quirky, unusual and admittedly, I do enjoy wearing things that aren’t considered particularly pretty or conventional and convincing people otherwise.

Got ’em. And I love them!! I ended up finding a white pair but I really didn’t like them on. So I stuck to these. They are really cute, and make my feet look tiny. Result!
