With summer just around the corner I've been assessing my footwear options. My favourite ankle boots and lace-ups are slowly getting less and less wear, and I've resorted to wearing the same patent black sandals over and over again. I also came to the sad realisation that many of the sandals I had religiously worn for the past few summers were well and truly past their use by date. You know what that means? Time for new shoes! I finally jumped on the Salt Water Sandals bandwagon and bought a pair from The Happy Cabin. I was pondering buying them online but I'm so glad I bought them in store because I got to have them properly fitted plus it's always nice to support local businesses. On the other, completely consumerist, end of the scale are these Topshop slingbacks I bought on sale. I love me some metallics and I think they'll be a nice way to smarten up a casual outfit. So, I think I have my dressy and casual footwear options sorted for now.
