A Quick OOTD and some New Look sandals – my new favourite purchase of the summer

Shirt: John Lewis weekend (last summer); shorts: Gap, Belt: Boden (previous seasons); Shoes: Aldo (previous seasons); Basket: Guernsey Boutique (similar here)

Stars, hearts, neon, flouro, metallics, stripes, sequins, flamingos, palm trees, smiley faces and pom poms – I am a sucker for them all. Stick them on an item of clothing, preferably all at the same time, and I’m there like a shot.

So tapping into merely the stars, hearts, metallics, sequins and the tiniest bit of flouro means that there’s a lot left for another day. Note to self: Must try harder.

Before I go, I wanted to share with you these pink leather beaded lace up sandals from New Look (currently available sizes 4 to 8) which I bought today for £11. I’ve been on the hunt for some “proper” summer sandals for a while. It started with some pom pom ones that I saw at Matches. Unsurprisingly it finished there too. New Look had a less expensive version but they had sold out and having looked a few times I’d decided that it was going to be a project for next year.

But then I spotted these and the deal was done. I’ve worn them around the house this afternoon and they are really comfortable, plus the ties don’t come undone – which is always an added bonus. I painted my toenails especially to take a photo of me wearing them, then trashed my handi-work, tried again, trashed it again and gave up as I had to go and make a lasagna for dinner. To be honest I think that the family appreciated that more anyway.
