“I never wear flats. My shoes are so high that sometimes when I step out of them, people look around in confusion and ask, “Where’d she go?” and I have to say, “I’m down here.”
Can anyone relate to Marian here? 😉
As much as we love a good pair of heels and are forever dreaming of owning more towering shoes in our collection, they aren’t always practical. Yes, nothing says style and sophistication like some pointed courts every now and then but there’s something very laid-back and effortless about throwing on a pair of flats or ankle boots. They’re comfortable too! As always we’ve a mixture of heels, ankle boots, and seeing as it’s the 1st April, some sandals to feast your eyes on.
#1: The metallic trend is one that is here to stay for the spring/summer season. These silver mock croc pointed courts from River Island would look perfect paired with some patterned trousers, simple cami and blazer or even a cute jumper to dress it down ever so slightly. You really can never have enough pointed courts in your collection, we say.
#2: These pink leather ankle boots from Office are what we’d class as ideal for spring wear. Not only for the subtle light colour, the pointed toe add a bit of girlies to the shoe and we can’t help but imagine them with a light summer dress for the warmer weather or light wash skinnies and a slouchy tee. What do you think?
#3: As mentioned here before on pippa.ie, nude heels are a great cheat to elongate your legs. H&M have jumped on the strappy nude sandal bandwagon and we can’t complain. They’re suede and leather look version is only €29.95. Whether it’s for a special occasion in the day, or a night out for drinks, these are definitely a must have.
#4: Yes, the time has come for sandals to start making an appearance in Tuesday Shoesdays. While the weather in Ireland might not exactly be sandal appropriate, there’s nothing wrong with being prepared, eh? This week, ZARA brought out these unique lace up leopard print sandals. Absolutely in love with these!
Hope you enjoyed this week’s Tuesday Shoesday.
