Summer Sandals

It seems the phrase 'heatwave' has been latched upon, but personally, I call this summer. I love the warmer weather, and my only regret presently, is that I got rid of my tired old Primark sandals last year when they fell apart, and haven't bothered to replace them. Good news though, not only is the warmer weather set to continue, but I'm off away on a sunshine break in September, so I've been a browsing for shiny, new, strappy sandals and shoes. Here's my front runners currently:

Rodi Roccia Sandals Spartoo
I like the grown up take on summer sandals these with the tan and snake skin effect. They are pefect neutral colours to go with all sorts of colours. But these particular Alberto Gozzi sandals do need to be versatile. These are my most pricey choice at £130.34, in the sale. Eeek.
Cristofoli Silver Flower Sandals Spartoo
These fabric embellished sandals are my second favourite on my hitlist. I love the subtlety of the flowers and the metallic would take these Cristofoli sandals from shorts and shirt in the day time to dress and bronzer in the evening for a girly shoe with a bit of an edge, how am I supposed to say no to 50% off in the sale?

Esska Heeled Wedge Suede Sandals Grey and Red Spartoo

I'm usually a fan of a flat sandal, but from time to time, a heel is useful, and as summer heels go, these are perfect. A good, stable wedge, perfect for afternoons with one (hic) too many Pimms, and work friendly in neutral tones but with an interesting flash of colour. I think these Esska shoes will be insanely comfortable, and, oh, look, more 50% off sale prices.... shame.

Apepaza Multi Coloured Bright Sandals

And the best to last. These are my absolute favourite of the bunch, and are sitting in my basket as a payday treat. Love the flashes of colour, which are varied enough that they will work with most of my wardrobe, love the jewelled front, love the strap around the heel for supper and love the streamlined, glamour of these Apepazza sandals. Come to mama

It's kinda scary to think that the new AW stock will be coming around before too many weeks, I've barely bothered with buying summer clothes and shoes this year, since I can't wear strappy sun dresses to work, and I didn't think I'd be getting a sunshine holiday. I did manage to dig out a few essentials that remained in storage at my parents' house last week though, and I'm definitely on the look out for dresses now, that I can wear comfortably with bare legs and no cardigan now, but that see me into the cooler autumnal months with tights and jackets. Hit me with any suggestions!
