Gladiator sandals are a perennial Summer favourite, and each and every year I find myself drawn to all manner of glam glads.
I have been spending like an absolute crazed lady of late, treating myself left right and centre, and I have now settled upon THE sandals of my Summer wardrobe.
I have a tendency to opt for over-elaborate sandals and those with all sorts of twinkling trinkets attached. However, my experiences with such sandals always seem to end in tears when the gems fall off. And yes, it's as traumatic as it sounds.
This year I have been more than a little bit smitten with these Isabel Marant sandals at Matches and Aimé on Ledbury Road, but my student/intern budget is certainly not going to reach to these Elvis sandals any time soon, unfortunate as that is.
When I spotted these tan studded sandals in Dune (not my usual shoe stop) I simply had to treat myself. Though they are not quite as dazzling as the Isabel Marant, they have a similar shape and style complete with a block wooden heel to elongate my less-than lengthy legs.
I was tempted by the white alternative, but managed to resist temptation and opted for the simple tan shade. If you're not one for studs, try this alternative from Office. These Roman sandals are flattering, simple and effortlessly chic.
My sandal collection just got sensible.
