Tuesday Shoesday – My Jelly Shoes

My little sister is a super-star. She treated me to this funky pair of white jelly shoes this week, spending her hard-earned Saturday-job cash on her big sis. What an amazing girl! Not only is she super-generous, she is also really intuitive, picking up on the fact that I love jelly shoes despite me hardly giving her any clues; I only used phrases such as ‘those are SO amazing’, ‘I’ve always wanted jelly shoes’ and ‘I LOVE them!’ when I spotted her own jelly shoe collection last month. I don’t know how she knew about my jelly shoe obsession, but nonetheless she handed me a bag last weekend with a shiny new pair tucked inside.

After 20 years of longing, a childhood of saving-up my pocket money in the hope that I’ll be able to buy some myself (which never happened), and beach holidays passing yearly without a pair of jellies, my lifelong yearning for jelly shoes has finally been fulfilled. And they are everything I hoped they would be; soft, pliable, comfortable, and bloomin’ cool! Yes, I am funky and I don’t care who knows it. If my teenager sister thinks that I can pull them off, I chuffin’ well can and I’m going to wear them at every opportunity.

Her own collection spans a range of colours and styles; from summery mint green and classy nude to bright white with neon soles and, in truth, I was super-jealous of my little sister’s footwear wardrobe. Even though I love all the colourful sandals she owns, I am really chuffed that she chose white for me; they are the perfect go-with-anything shoe and will make any outfit – dress or jeans – look really summery and fresh.summer footwer trend white jelly shoes-2 summer footwer trend white jelly shoes-5

I actually can’t wait to wear them on my beach holiday later this summer as I know I’ll be able to run into the sea wearing my jellies without fear of stepping on a sharp shell. I may end up with ‘interesting’ tan lines, but I don’t care – that’s just how cool and young and hip I am.

My little sister treated me to a pair of cute white jelly shoes & now I feel like a child again! Love them 💕
