My Summer Footwear Update

When it comes to the summer, I can mostly be found wearing flip flops and sandals with a great pedicure.  Every year, as soon as my two favourite shops for footwear on the high street, Primark and New Look, put their sandals on sale, I go mad and buy up my favourite designs.  Today I'm going to share with you my new sandals from Primark.

This is my summer (and I use the term loosely...) footwear update...

Primark Footwear Haul
I'll get the less summery pairs out of the way first, starting with these metallic rose gold and black flats.  These were reduced to £4 in the sale and I picked them up as I loved the quilted design and they are a great way to jazz up a plain work outfit.  I adore the colour of rose gold and I am really looking for accessories to match my DKNY rose gold watch, so these will go really well!

Now I'm just putting this out there as I know many girls will have experienced this but sometimes when I wear shoes like those above, they end up smelling badly and dropping to pieces after a month or so.  I've been wearing these footies with my ballet flats recently and they have really stopped this from happening- my shoes are in great condition.  Anyway, moving on...!

Another pair of metallic shoes I treated myself to were these gold glitter trainers........ now before you all think I've gone mad, I honestly think these Converse style shoes would look great with some skinny jeans to add a little sparkle to an otherwise plain outfit.  These were in the sale also and an absolute steal at £3.

So now moving on to the hot topic in this not so hot weather we're having- sandals.

If you're a regular reader of my blog then you'll probably know by now that coral is one of my favourite colours.  I wore it constantly last summer and my website featured many WhatLauraWore outfit posts wearing some gorgeous coral clothes.  My latest shopping trip was my opportunity to spring into March with the purchase of a new pair of coral sandals.  These are a faux suede coral cross over sandal with a gorgeous rose gold band that sits behind the toes.  These were the most expensive sandals that I bought but at only £8 they were still a bargain.

Studs are everywhere once again this season and I found some gorgeous ones in Primark.  The first pair I picked up were these rose gold studded sandals with a rose gold bow on them.  The faux leather is a pinky cream colour which would look incredible with a tan.  I can't wait to wear these this summer.

Another studded pair I got were these tan faux leather sandals with gold spiked studs.  Tan and gold are just amazing colours to wear during the summer.  These aren't as good quality as the other shoes that I bought but they're still lovely enough for the summer and will look great with maxi dresses and shorts.  I have seen some very similar to these in Topshop and they were far more expensive than the £6 that these cost me.

For the last two years, I have literally been obsessed with Primarks fabric flower sandals and this year is no exception.  I picked these up in each colour- coral to wear with my summer dresses, white as they will go with any outfit and black as they will be perfect for work.  They have a large fabric flower on them with a diamante flower in the middle.  At £6 a piece, I'll

The last pair of sandals that I got were these gorgeous nude and silver diamante flip flops from the Sole Desire range.  They are slightly wider than the other sandals that they sell, making them a great option for girls with wide feet and they have a cushioned insole making them super comfortable to wear.  At only £6 these are such great quality.

So that's all of the shoes I've bought recently, I haven't had a chance to look in New Look yet but the shoes in Primark are to die for at the moment!  I'd always recommend buying the ones you like as soon as you see them, if that's possible for you, as going off past experience, they get bought up quickly.  I've been disappointed in the past when I've seen some sandals I've liked and gone back to get them a couple of weeks later only to find they had sold out in my size!

  1. I love Primark flip flops - can't help myself from picking up a pair every time I go there! Last year I found some I liked and bough 6 pairs - one in every colour.
