Keep calm and carry on wearing sandals. That’s my (not-very-catchy) motto, anyway.
I’ve been wanting to wear these black lace-up sandals c/o Sarenza for AGES, but the rain just wouldn’t stop and they’re clearly not suitable for navigating the muddy Yorkshire countryside. So I waited. And waited. And waited. After what seems like 20 billion years of rain and grey skies, I finally caved and just bloody well put them on. In your face, Mother Nature!
Okay, so my feet were cold. And a bit wet. But at least these sandals are more substantial than most, and I love how they look with my ever-present Disco Pants.
The scarf is a recent Zara purchase – lightweight scarves are a staple in my summer wardrobe and Zara has the best range. A light cotton or soft silk adds just the right amount of coverage to keep off the chill, and a bright colour or cool pattern will add detail to a simple outfit. Teamed with a chiffon blouse and classic black blazer, I felt fine flitting from the police station (handing in my driving licence after a speeding offence – argh!) to the studio then out for dinner and drinks in the evening.
Oh, the bag? I know. It’s a beauty. It was a very expensive impulse purchase from Zara (where else? J’adore that shop) and I love it like a child. Maybe a little bit more. Don’t judge!
Have you had a chance to wear your favourite summer pieces? Are you soldiering on in flip flops and maxi dresses or are you back in boots and a coat?
