Gold Brogues - are they past it......or am I?

bought myself a very cool pair of Rose gold brogues from Russell & Bromley this week and was thinking of wearing them with boyfriend jeans and knits for the spring and summer

But every time I see them in the box I get a bit scared. A quick search on here brought up lots of threads about gold brogues from 2011-2013, so just wondering if this is a look that is already over. And if not, given that I'm 40, am I past it too?

Just worries I'm going to be out there looking like something out of Justin's House grin

Do you have a link to them?

I like the sound of them but I'm also of the attitude of I don't care what people think as long as I feel comfortable and like it...

Is it these?

I love them but I do think you'd have to be careful what you wear them with!

I have mine from last year. Love them and are a great alternative to ballet flats!

Wear them just as you describe.

I'm past it and I like them. Hope that helps grin

Metallic accessories very S/S14. With footwear, you are only past it if you can't walk in them or if they expose your bunions/ horny toenails/ leathery heels.
Which these, being brogues, won't.

They are lovely, I would wear them with jeans too. I like paler coloured brogues in the warmer seasons when my black and brown pairs look too heavy and wintery.

OK thanks so much for the replies. I've decided to keep them.....although am still shocked every time I open the box for a peep!! Before DCs I used to spend a lot on shoes - as not really into bags or jewellery and so nice shoes were my thing. But all those shoes would cripple me now and totally not suitable for pushing the buggy through town! So am thinking these are the way forward, albeit in a different direction

Thanks for all the links - very helpful
