British Summer Appropriate


The past week parts of the country have recorded temperatures the highest so far this year.. just parts of the country, though. I live in the North West, which has been extremely dull, cold and raining most of the week too. As much as I love England, the major downside is the weather; it's incredibly unpredictable, meaning you can't rely on usual summer attire, including footwear.

I picked up a couple new bits from Betty London, which are one of my favourite brands for shoes. First I got a perfect pair of summer sandals, the 'Carolet' style in black. These are seriously comfortable and easy to just clip on with everything. They're quite similar to the 'slider' style of sandal that are everywhere at the moment, but with a little support around the heel making them a little easier to walk in. I've really wanted a pair of suede boots for ages, so got the Bertope boots which I really liked the look of, although I did have to get them in a whole size larger as my size had sold out at the time and I'm impatient! I think they'll be okay if I wear them with a thick pair of socks though, apart from the whole clown feet thing. I haven't actually worn these yet, but they're on hand for the rainy days.

Have you been buying any new shoes for summer?

    I think the English weather is very comparable to the Dutch weather. It also gets very humid in summer. To be honest, I'd rather have one year of winter and I'll find my summer elsewhere. I really like the sandals! They'll go with everything x

  4. Gorgeous boots! I love black ankle boots, they're so classic - I got a lovely pair from ASOS a few months ago and they're becoming such a staple :) I'm also from the North West so I definitely get the whole weather thing - definitely no record highs for us yet! Xx

  6. Over here we have a couple days of sunshine, followed by a few of rain, then some where it's mixed! I wish it could just stay sunny.

  7. Thank you! I'm a little unsure if they really suit me but I think paired with jeans and a simple top they'll become a bit of an everyday uniform :)

  9. Haha, what?! As much as I complain I'd rather have it like this than winter again, I'm almost dreading summer being over!

  11. Summer is in full swing here in southern California, so I'm on the search for some sandals and those look lovely! But honestly I wish we had some different weather here.
