I thought I’d do something a little different today and write about something loungewear-adjacent – slippers!
The weather in Barcelona right now is an odd blend of warm, sunny days, and bitterly cold mornings and evenings. I’m still not totally used to living in a country that shuns carpet, and I hate the feeling of freezing tiles under my feet first thing in the morning.
I do have slippers, but they’re getting old and so I’ve been researching a replacement. My current ones are also booties which, cute as they are, don’t really fit the vibe when I’m at home in a silk slip or a velvet and lace dressing gown. ‘Boudoir slippers’ are a thing, but they’re not really slippers in the usual sense. They’re mules with kitten heels or wedges (or tall stilettos!), often designed with a peep-toe, and are rarely lined with something soft. They’re pretty, but not exactly comfy and cosy.
What I am looking for, really, is something that looks chic or even glamorous, but which will also keep my toes perfectly toasty. And I found so many tempting styles that I kind of want a whole slipper wardrobe now…
I’m leaning towards the bejewelled and fluffalicious River Island, Zara or Pretty You London slippers as the ones I’ll purchase, but which are your favourite pairs?
