pomtastic pom poms

shoes: ASOS

I'm not much of a shoe person. I have flat feet and tendonitis, which makes most shoes painful, and I also have short legs and cankle issues, meaning that dainty shoes usually look hilarious.

I'd been lusting after a pair of pom pom shoes for AGES, but was worried that the ankle strap would become a cankle highlighter, and a pointy shoe would look ridiculous on my size 6 feet. Then these ASOS beauties hopped into my life, and I've never looked back.

Keep reading to see how I've styled these shoes in two different ways...

shirt: Lazy Oaf, jeans, Topshop

I'm one of those people who has a NIGHTMARE with jeans. I have a small waist and a big butt, and I'm also really paranoid about getting baggy knees. This is why I live in tights. Jeans are not worth it.

I do love these shoes with denim, though, as the ankle grazers really show off the shoes, especially paired with a quirky top for a unique look. Mom jeans would also be a great option with these shoes, especially if you tucked in a plain tee and added a statement necklace.

skirt: JW Anderson x Topshop, top: Topshop, necklace: I Love Crafty

Pom poms also work really well as part of a cute work outfit. I've added my JW Anderson x Topshop pencil skirt from a few years ago with a plain black top and mirrored parrot necklace. If you're an unlucky gal who has to wear business wear to work, a pair of unique shoes can add a great twist to a plain, smart outfit, or a suit.

This is the most dressed up I've felt in AAAGES, but I really loved wearing this outfit! 

As usual, I couldn't resist matching my nails. This was a really easy look to create - I just used the gradient technique and a mustard, orange and navy. Although I'm always matching my nails to my outfit, I don't think I've ever matched my nails to my shoes before. Hello, new obsession!

I'm going to a wedding reception next weekend and I'll be wearing the poms with my cat party dress. Take a look at my Insta next weekend to see the result...

How would you style these shoes?


  1. These are the absolute cutest and love all the ways you've styled them! ASOS have seriously been making me question how many pairs of pom pom shoes are too many to own haha xx

  2. Ahh, thanks so much lovely! I think the answer to that is you can never own too many! Xx
