Learning to love trainers - A few Outfit Ideas

Those of you who follow me on Instagram and Snapchat know that I have recently been diagnosed with flat feet!

I had been suffering from severe heel and foot pain for a while so decided to see my doctor. He referred me to specialist who confirmed it was indeed flat feet AKA fallen arches and I needed insoles. No problem I thought I can just slip them into my normal shoes...think again Kerry...ballet pumps, slip on shoes and heels were out and trainers were advised as my everyday shoe. SAY WHAT!!! I'm 47 not 17 and The ONLY time I wear trainers is to the gym! Okay I do wear converses from time to time but they are DEFINITELY out as they are too flat...cue complete shoe breakdown!

For a couple of days I embraced the Sporty Spice look but it just wasn't me...so I headed over to Pintrest to get some inspiration.

I was surprised at how many stylish looks there were, okay a lot of the girls were young and gorgeous with impossibly long legs but I began to realise that I didn't have to live in tracksuit bottoms and I could adapt some of the looks to suit a more curvy figure.

Cue a shopping trip (I know its a hard life) after trying on a lot of different trainers I finally purchased a pair of Nike Air Max Thea.

Along with a selection of different scarves, wraps and snoods.

Above are a couple of looks I put togther using similar items I have in my wardrobe, let me know what you think.

I'm still finding my feet (excuse the pun) but hopefully I can finally give that 90`s tracksuit to the charity shop!
