If there is such a thing – fall sandals!

It’s almost half way through August and everyone’s focus is now on Fall.  The back breaking September issue of Vogue will soon be hitting my door mat, undoubtedly full of fabulous temptations.  As you know I’ve already been lured into a couple of Fall purchases, though I did return the Zara pointed boots – too goblin-like for me in the end – but I filled the suede void with the fabulous pink Boden desert boots which are on their way to me as we speak (I may also have sneaked the pink skinny jeans in the order too)!

I do struggle here with the Fall releases being so early – it really doesn’t get cooler in Atlanta till early November.  Most years we are trick or treating in shorts and t-shirts with the kids sweltering in their costumes.  I know few of you have sympathy for me – but I am a girl that loves sweaters and boots so I long for the cool temperatures!

To ease my pain I’ve been browsing sandals as at least I can show off my pedicure for longer!  I may even have made a couple of sneaky purchases:)

These heels have caught my eye – and a couple of them resemble those I’ve seen in Zara over the summer – but these are fabulously priced!

Clockwise from top – Black snake print t-bar – New Look £19.99 // Black strappy lace up – New Look £24.99 // Yokono cut out sandals – New Look just £27.00 in the sale // Pewter snake print ankle strap – New Look £19.99


As for flats here are my favorites from Nine West at Zappos.com – and both are in the sale!  I’m a sucker for an ankle strap and a bit of animal print but they also come in solid colors too.

Sync or Swim

Here’s hoping a couple more sandal purchases will prevent me from prematurely leaping into the ankle boot pool before they are all released!

Today’s outfit is all about comfort I’m afraid!

      Aww thanks Melanie! I had a fabulous day! Aren’t the desert boots great – if you keep an eye out this week they may get included in a catch of the day – you never know! x

    I’m still cursing that I missed the pair of black Zara ones which you picked up and wore a lot on your hols. I would have loved those. Ah well … September around the corner now :o)

      I love those sandals – I wore them a lot on holiday. I returned the nappa ones like Kat’s as they were HUGE! Yep September – time to start drooling over ankle boots and sweatshirts:)

    Glad you sent back those goblin boots – I was not a fan! But loving what’s en-route to you – can’t wait to see! x

      I know – I really wanted to like them – but I just couldn’t – they were way too pointy…I’m excited to see the desert boots too! I love my classic Clark’s desert boots in the Fall:)
