Nothing quite says ‘hello summer’ like a picnic in a park with the sun shining and summer heels. Not just any summer heels but my Kate Middleton-esque espadrille wedges. And who doesn’t want to look like Kate while walking through beautiful gardens and sipping on pimms?
Enough about Kate, I’ve started to wear heels more often, thinking it’s better to show them “the world” than have them sit collecting dust in my cupboard.
These nude heels are simple with small stand out features like a dash of red and a bow tie at the back. Small aspects like this make a plain navy blue dress and heels a bit more interesting.
It’s actually silly how comfortable these wedges are – I walked on grass, pavement, up stairs, down hills and didn’t complain about my feet once. An accomplishment of note I tell you. Things only took a turn for the worse when I stepped in mud, which I’m sure Kate Middleton has done before as well.
Rumour has it Urban along with other brands under the Platinum Group are closing down so you probably won’t find these heels, but I have posted links to similar ones below. The links are to my two favourite espadrille shoes, need to get a flat pair of them for summer asap!
Not only were my heels super comfy but my dress has these cool pockets too, which give a bit more shape and form to the ensemble. This dress is from H&M, who are opening their two stores in South Africa soon; find out more about that on my blog here.
Starting my new job next week, eeek 🙂 hopefully the sun is still shining. Have a good week.
