Tuesday Shoesday – Summer sandals & twinkly toes!

Is it finally summer? Some days I open my curtains to see a bright blue sky, searingly hot sunshine and fluffy white clouds, and other days I’m immediately disappointed by grey skies and drizzle. In fact, some days alternate between hot sunshine and cold showers in quick succession: I’ll be too hot one minute, soaking wet the next and back to sun-burn-city only moments later. What is up with this weather??

But I’ve decided that, summer or no summer, I want to find some perfect strappy sandals, because everyone needs a pretty pair of comfortable summer footwear by their front door, ready to run outside into the sun at a moment’s notice. Solange Knowles has recently been spotted cycling in a pretty pair of Azzedine Alaïa sandals (above) and although they’re gorgeous, they are a little out of my price range! So with this in mind, I’ve been hunting for the bargains of the Internet and I’ve come up with a couple of must-haves for (what’s left of!) this summer season.

Plus with strappy sandals like these you’ll need to get your feet ship-shape with some pretty polish – maybe try out this sparkly & floral effect on your toes or get MUA’s special effect nail polish to do all the work for you – add Nail Quake in purple ‘Broken Arrow’ over a turquoise blue for a summery peacock-feather effect (check out Nail Newbie‘s blog):
