The sandals you need this season

*Please note I have used some affiliate links in this post*

If you asked me what shoes to buy this season, it would have to be the mid, block heeled sandal. I think they are the perfect pair of smart casual shoes to see you through the summer. They look great worn with jeans and a blazer, but they’ll also work with your dresses and satin slip skirts. I tend to avoid taking heels on holiday, as I never like to look too dressed up, but this is a style I would consider popping in my suitcase as they give me the extra height I desperately need, without feeling too smart.

Here’s what I look for…

  • Comfort is key. For me, this meant trying lots of different pairs until I found ‘the ones’ and I found that the block heel was the easiest style to walk in. Something to think about if you are attending a garden party or a wedding this summer, the block heel won’t have you sinking into the earth.
  • I always try to avoid an ‘over the ankle’ strap. I don’t have long legs, and find that ankle straps tend to cut my legs off at the wrong place. If an ankle strap is unavoidable, then I would opt for nude strap so that it blends in. A black strap across the ankle is a no-no for me. I also find thinner straps across the foot more flattering than thick ones.
