Wish I could actually wear them.

All my new sandals that is.  It’s chucking it down here again in Bury.  I thought I’d bought enough foul weather clothes – but I forget how foul it can get.  I have zero waterproofs and zero waterproof shoes with me.  Same can be said for the kids.  We are completely unprepared for cold, wet, rain.

I think I might have enough sandals for Cyprus though.  I’m hoping that wearing them there is pretty much guaranteed.



Here’s a closer look at the lovely bow cage M&S nude sandals – they really are lovely.  Some reviews say size down but I ended up with my usual UK 6 – maybe it’s due to my wider feet – but just be warned you might want to try a size down.  The nude have a suede heel rather than the metallic heel on the other two colorways.

As much as I love my sandals, my favorite purchases are these Autograph peep toe booties – in snakeskin and black – they are perfect.  The heel height is about 3″ so perfectly comfortable and ideal for day wear too.  As I’ve mentioned before, my toes have a mind of their own, so these keep them nicely encased and on their best behavior.  I wish they came in nude too.

Now for what I’ve been wearing for the last couple of days.  On Wednesday night, after my day out with Sue, I needed some comfy clothes.  I know – the bra is bright blue and can be seen – but the photo is more so you can see the new Mango trousers.  I LOVE them.  The t-shirt is Gap and the bright pink looks great with the neutral trousers.  Size down in Gap tees – this is a small.



Yesterday I wore plenty of brights – begging the sun to appear.  Obviously it didn’t work.  The nail polish is Essie Lapis of Luxury and complements the colors in the t-shirt really well!

    WHAT an amazing collection of sandals! What an utter shame you are unable to wear them – it must be torture! Here’s hoping you get a chance in Cyprus to wear them all!

    Will you be able to get them all home along with all the clothes?!!

      At least I get to wear them all the time in Atlanta too. OH is only bringing his left flip flop and his speedos so I should have some space in his bag:)

    I popped into M&S last month with a gift card expecting to have a hard time spending it but their shoe collection was fantastic! The cage flats are gorgeous. It’s raining in Hampshire too at the moment but I hear brighter weather is on the way for the weekend!

    I know the weather is miserable isn’t it? So different from Wednesday. But take them all to Cyprus and dazzle each day with a different pair of sandals! And I love the Mango pants but I just look so bad in pants like that – I just can’t rock them. Believe me – I have tried many pairs on.

    I’m loving your sandal haul!! Hoping you get to wear them all in Cyprus, but I’m sure you will. That yellow jeans outfit is stunning Joanna, you look very happy and healthy in it! X
