Summer Sandals

I stumbled upon the most magnificent mismatched pair of sandals this week (featured image) and after hunting them down (they live in Australia…)  I have come to the realisation that I may not be able to own a pair, down to tricky sizing, getting them here, risking them not fitting after getting them here, not being able to return them and having a lovely pair of incredibly expensive sandals sitting in my closet. And on second thoughts, maybe all that would be worth it in the event that they do actually fit, in which case the mission and cost would totally be worth it.

Whilst I feel none of the below even slightly compare to these beauties (in my eyes) here are some pretty cool easy going summer sandals that can be found on the high streets of SA.  I personally love a tan coloured sandal, I think it complements “a tan” and goes with the entire wardrobe, style permitting.

These knotted slides below are extremely comfortable and look way better on than off, I LOVE them! Link to UK site but can be found in SA stores.

Winners for comfort – Solillas. They come in a massive range of colours I do love these sparkly ones.  I haven’t come across this brand in SA yet but I have seen replicas in other stores (can’t guarantee the comfort of the non- Solillas however)

Looking forward to perfectly pedicured tanned feet again 🙂

Outfit Goals

Wherever you are in the world, I think February is a bit of an odd month! Shopping wise your’e neither here nor there.

If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, you’re desperately praying for signs of Spring and warmer days.  You can’t bare the thought of purchasing another jumper as you feel that summer is around the corner (although it’s not!) but you find yourself holding out for the Spring essentials which will start popping up around the stores as early as Feb/March.

In the Southern Hemisphere, you’ve done your summer shopping, you’ve had your beach holiday (December/January).  Easter is coming up but that can be so touch and go weather wise so you never know what your’e going to get!

This is a great time to revisit your wardrobe and go through what you have used this season and what you have not touched, if there has been something that you have not wanted to wear, be ruthless and chuck it out while it’s all fresh in your mind .  Once you have done a major (or minor) cull you know you can pack your wardrobe away, knowing that when this season comes around again you’ve sorted it already whilst it was fresh in your mind.  At this late stage in the season whatever you buy should be transferable to the next season.  Examples below are two items I would pick being in a summer country.

This raffia clutch is great for a summer lunch with denim shorts and a kimono and would work brilliantly with a pair of black jeans and shirt in the winter.

I also love this grey skirt, pair it with a tee and espadrilles now or with an exact grey tone match jumper and boots in winter – LOVE!
