Getting Festival Ready? Then grab the PERFECT sandals - Sail Festival Metallic Womens Smart Sandals by Clarks

It's no surprise that I like these. The shock about these is that they are made by Clarks. They are absolutely your go-to silver strappy sandals that are comfy enough to wear all day. They look equally fantastic when paired with jeans, fluted floral dresses or short shorts, and they might just be the best value you will get in return for £40 all year. My only small personal gripe is that they are not genuine leather, as I love the style and would have been happy to pay £60 and have them in real leather uppers instead.

They are super flat and feminine, wear with a maxi dress on holidays for easy to wear evening glamour. If you can wear non-leather shoes, then I'd highly recommend them.

These women's T-bar sandals combine a high shine silver meallic non-leather upper with an unbelievably lightweight Cushionsoft sole resulting in a sandal that mixes style and comfort. An adjustable strap keeps feet secure while a classic silhouette and studded detailing means that these sandals can be styled up or down this season depending on the occasion.

BAG PORN ALERT! - Featuring Pieces Large Worn Leather Bag

I'm currently on the look out for a huge leather carry all bag. One that is smart enough for work, durable enough for my daily commute, large enough to safely carry an array of fantastical things that I have upon my person at all times (a-herm!), AND looks bloody good to boot. This gorgeous leather holdall seems to fit the bill on all counts, and how I wish that ASOS had stores sometimes so that I could do meet it in person rather than buying it for £120 and hoping that it's amazing. I do love it, but I would love to be able to see it and feel the softness of the leather first.

If anyone knows where I can view this in a store ahead of ordering it then PLEASE let me know.

I think it's rather lovely, and just LOOK below at how roomy it is too!

Shopping the gorgeous new heels @ASOS - featuring HATCHED Heeled Sandals in black or pale pink (nude)

I was browsing the new in section over @ASOS, and then saw these gorgeous new heeled sandals which are unbelievably not only INCREDIBLY sexy, but also less than £50. For that price you might just want to pick up a pair of each colour.

The cross strap front reminds me of a flirty little halterneck dress, and they come in the very best two colour options that I can think of. Although, if ASOS were to bring out a third then a liquid shine silver metallic would also become something of an eveningwear shoe staple for me.

As seen in the pictures above and below, they also look fantastic with a light natural tan and a white pedicure. That is a look I shall openly steal for SS15. Tech details below if you want to know more!

Heels by ASOS Collection
  • Suede-look upper
  • Crossed ankle strap
  • Pin buckle fastening
  • Peep toe
  • Tapered high heel
  • Wipe with a soft cloth
  • Upper: 100% Textile.
  • Heel height: 11.5cm/4.5"

Small site notice - slightly reduced posts this week!

Just a quick note to say there will be 3 posts rather than the regular 5. I may add to that if I get time (and subsequently remove this post) however due to prepping and planning for adding an extension to the downstairs of my home, I've not had as much time as I normally have at the weekend.

But there are gorgeous posts planned for Monday, Wednesday and Friday as it stands. Update to follow later if I manage to get more time to write, but right now I've walked over 10 miles today and I need a well-earned shower and pamper session!!!
