Let's face it, strappy high heeled summer sandals are fabulous, but they're not exactly practical, and realistically you might only wear them a few times over the course of a whole summer, especially if a major part of your summer in spent on a caravan site in Donegal. Harsh but true, peeps, harsh but true.
Saying that, I absolutely REFUSE to go down the hideous clog Crocs route, despite buying them in bulk for all my boys. Quite simply, it's a step too far, and even on a caravan site certain standards MUST be maintained, from a shoe point of view, anyway.
(I should disclose at this point- for fear my sister outs me- that I DO actually own a pair of clog Crocs *sharp intake of breath* HOWEVER they are fur lined, and are therefore technically slippers. They're also NEVER under any circumstances worn in public AND are pink leopard print, which I do realise redeems them only slightly....we will never speak of this again)
My lovelies, wedges are my go to sandals-comfy, pretty and practical...and most importantly, not flat. Much as I can admire and appreciate ballerinas and gladiators on others, sadly they're not for me. Personally, I'd go as far as to say that the wedge is the new flat, and no one does it better than Fly London. (And no, this post isn't sponsored. For some inexplicable reason, my recent review offers have only included nursing bras and almonds.)
I have two pairs of Fly sandals in my wardrobe- a white pair and a green pair, and despite several summers' heavy use, they're still going strong. Dress 'em up, dress 'em down -they work with shorts, capris, dresses, jeans.....these are hard working, very pretty shoes my lovelies. AND they come in lots of different colours and styles-here's just a taster.
|I've my eye on these bad boys myself!|
If you only buy one pair of shoes this summer, (Puh-leese), then these are the ones for you.
They normally retail in or around the 80-100 quid mark, which admittedly is pricy but totally justifiable when you think in terms of cost per wear. (And I absolutely recommend that you do-it's soooo liberating)
But even though I say so myself, I MAY have outdone myself this time, because Amazon is doing 25% off summer shoes with the code ESCAPE25 until 11th May AND if you go through Topcashback you'll get a further 8.4% back!
Who's the Mammy?? For goodness sake, it would be rude not to-go work that wedge, baby!
