With the warmer days upon us, I've been on the search for the ultimate summer sandal. As the above photo demonstrates, I managed to break my favourite pair of tan coloured sandals (let that be a lesson not to dance in them in the back street!) And to top it off, I had only just broken them in and started to avoid the inevitable blisters on the back of my heels.
As I'm going to be working a fair bit this summer, I needed some shoes that would work for both the office, as well as out and about in the town over Christmas and New Year.
I'm still on the hunt for a pair of leopard-print gladiators, but in the meantime, here's what I've managed to find.
First things first, here are my lovely new pair of golden flats that I bought off Urban Outfitters. I was a bit nervous as I've never bought shoes off the internet before because you usually need to try them on, but thank goodness, they're a perfect fit and extremely comfortable too. They also remind me a bit of the golden Jiffies I used to have when I was younger!
As mentioned, I need a bit more officey-type shoes as well. These shoes were very soft and practical because you can wear them with basically everything.
And the most inexpensive of all, a pair of tribal-style sandals that add a bit of colour to any outfit.
Speaking of the summer break, I've already managed to fit in a number of things of which I've learnt some valuable lessons:
2. Geese are very large and very intimidating when you're trying to eat a picnic.
3. Wear a full piece instead of a bikini in a beach renowned for dumping waves or you'll prioritise keeping your top up over actually swimming.
But back to the real issue at stake - have you found your perfect summer sandal yet?
