Recently the sun has come out and I have really been enjoying it. There is nothing nicer than sitting in the garden on a warm night reading a book in the sun. We also have a couple of bank holidays coming up and with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee approaching I am sure there are going to be a few parties. I had a look at my collection of shoes but I seem to be sadly lacking in summer footwear.
I wanted to have a look for some sandals and see if I could find a pair that would look elegant, go with a number of different outfits and keep my feet nice and cool. I know that I will be going to work, going to barbecues, sitting in the garden and going on holiday over the summer. Ideally I would like a pair that I can wear for all these different occasions. The reasoning behind this is that when I go away I do not want to have to bring lots of pairs of shoes with me.
The first pair that caught my eye were these turquoise and fuchsia Cialeo sandals made by Bocage.
I really love the bright summery colours that they come in and the little tassels at the front make them look elegant. I can imagine sitting in a sun dress at a garden party sipping a glass of wine in these. They would definitely look lovely with a dress but I also think they would go well with a pair of shorts and a sun top.
The next pair I noticed were these gorgeous sandals from Bronx, they are called Glisoc and again come in lovely summery colours of blue, green and purple. These have a wedge heel which makes them slightly better for walking on grass, I find smaller heels can sink in. I love the blue detailing on the heel, it makes them a little bit more unusual. I can definitely see me wearing these to work or sitting outside the pub having a meal on a lovely sunny day.
My final choice was these gorgeous royal blue Bridgette sandals made by Buffalo. I really like the fancy blue ruffling on the front, its an extra bit of detailing that just catches the eye and makes them look that little bit more special. I think these would be ideal shoes to wear for that Jubilee party, you could team the blue shoes with a red skirt and a white top. They also come in black as well if you want something more classical.
I must admit I have still not made a final decision about which pair I am going to buy, I am having so much fun looking and every time I think I have made a choice I find another pair I like. I’d love to know which pair you would like, it may help me to decide.
