In recent years I have become more and more aware of the need for comfort in the heat. A month in the Mediterranean each year, plus at least 6 months of 70 degrees Fahrenheit necessitate comfy, cool feet. I love my flat simple sandals, but there are still times a girl needs some good heels. Espadrilles fit the bill perfectly for height and comfort – and the added practicality of a wedge means you can glide along the lawn at those summer gatherings.
I love this nude taupe pair and the slight platform is perfect – these will look hot as hell with denim shorts and a white shirt.
Kurt Geiger are another high end option – here in the US they are even more – why can’t brands just use the exchange rate?! Having said that these are so unique that they might be worth the extra $$$. The Mimi in snake skin is gorgeous and they also come in a gold glitter which will be great for a high summer party.
For those of you in the UK you may already be aware that Kurt Geiger now sell Vince Camuto – a brand I have bought on several occasions here. These platforms are lovely.
TheOutnet.com is well worth a good browse on a Sunday evening. Soludos is a brand that I have worn regularly is and promoted by many bloggers including Sincerely Jules. I have a couple of pairs of their smoking slippers that I love. Right now there’s an abundance of the brand on TheOutnet.com heavily discounted.
I ordered this pair last night – I love the pink and orange together. Again reduced by almost 50%.
Others that caught my eye on TheOutnet.com include these by Tory Burch. What a perfect color for summer and these are leather. Discounted by 55%.
These are by Iris and Ink – TheOutnet’s own brand – I really love the red but they also come in brown.
These are a bit of a curve ball but I bloody love them! For some reason I think they would be a great travel shoe – I know that sounds daft/pretentious having shoes for traveling – but take it from me you need flats, easy on and off, and stylish shoes for that jet-setting lifestyle 🙂 The Rag & Bone Gena espadrille.
Also available in khaki.
These white eyelet espadrilles are really pretty and feminine. Keeping them clean might be a b*tch but thats where clorox gel pens come in handy!
Oh and these – yes I love these – I know many of you will hate them – but hey that’s what makes fashion fun!!
We had a lovely family day today – out for a lunch of burgers and ice cream. Unfortunately I am having real trouble moving after 30 laps in the pool yesterday. Seriously getting dressed was a real problem this morning 😉 That’ll teach me to work out.
