A friend of mine has just emigrated to Australia. Lucky thing. Thankfully she’s not near Sydney where the awful bush fires are breaking out everywhere, but its still a bit of a worry. They are about the experience the hottest summer for decades, and no doubt my friend and her little family will be feeling it much more than the natives. I’m not a big fan of the heat – clearly Australia isn’t for me – but I do prefer warmer weather to the recent spell of wind and rain we’re having. As photos appear on Facebook of her settling in with bright blue skies and sunshine it does make me think of next summer. As much as I love winter clothes and boots and coats, there’s nothing like being able to wander around in comfortable sandals and skirts and tshirts. I was having a look on the Lotus website earlier and found some rather nice looking wedge sandals. Maybe something to think about for next year, or maybe I should point my friend in that direction. Here are my favourites.
I’ve never been particularly good with heels. My feet just aren’t designed to wear them unless they are fairly low so the blue pair on the left would probably be the safest option for me, but I do like the beaded peep toe ones more. They’d probably make very good wedding shoes actually, or I see them teamed with a fifties style dress for a special night out. Maybe I’ll just have to convince my feet to co-operate…
