I think it’s finally warm enough to break out the summer flats, lately it’s just been that little bit too warm for boots and sneakers although I’m loathe to leave my winter wardrobe behind – when it comes to style, I have a winter personality. Do you find that too? So this weekend I went shopping for a new pair of sandals to update my capsule wardrobe and have been trying to make more informed choices about what I purchase and how everything I buy can be useful as an ensemble and go with everything. I’m not one for glitz and fuss these days so I spent a good evening hunting online for the perfect every-day pair before I hit the shops on Saturday and today I’ve put together my definitive edit. Of course, I plumped for the simple and minimal, focusing on this season’s neutrals – navy, nude, white and tan.
|1| You can never go wrong with a Birkenstock, particularly when they come in navy – this summer is all about deep blue.
|2| Love the pale taupe leather with white trim and double sole in these K Jacques St Tropez Barigoule sandals at Net-a-Porter. A definite wardrobe staple.
|3| A barely there style with a detached toepost. Minimal to a ‘T’. Aralia in white at Whistles.
|4| My champions (I ordered these on Saturday and they arrived on Sunday!) are these black fringed leather beauties with ankle buckle at Zara, drawing on the fringing trend with a little more structure and a little less fuss.
|5| I will always love nude as a colour and these double buckle Sol Sana Fosters are the ultimate in in simple, feminine style. Do it.
|6| The height of a platform without the potential for twisting your ankles. Get the best of both worlds with these two tone leather and rubber platforms at & Other Stories.
At least, if nothing else, my feet are ready for our trip to France next week where we’ll spend ten days with my husband’s parents at their home in the Midi-Pyrenees. Now I just need to find the rest!
How are you going about tackling your summer wardrobe this season? Have you spotted some flats for you?
