Every year, 31st August makes me sad. As much as I try to deny it, I know it signifies the end of summer.
Come 1st September I develop a sense of bullishness that NO, it’s is STILL summer, and I definitely WILL NOT give in to pre-ordained seasons and the associated expectations, and I will damn well WEAR MY SANDALS.
The last couple of years I’ve taken it a step further, not only wearing sandals but actively still buying them, as though this extra step will in some way push back Mother Nature and her creeping leaf changing and temperature drops. And this year is no exception.
Since getting back from holiday I’ve bought not one but 3 new pairs of sandals! Yep, while most women are getting excited about new season clothes and counting down the hours to pumpkin latte o’clock I’m still buying summer sandals, baring my toes and pretending that we’re heading towards high summer, not the depths of winter.
So, here they are!
Silver crackle lace up gladiator sandals – Everything 5 Pounds
Camo cork sole flatforms – Everything 5 Pounds
Purple pom pom lace up sandals – eBay
This year, for good measure, I’ve also bought some summer dresses, because why not!
Red flounce sundress – H&M
Snakeskin 2 layer sundress – H&M
Blue flounce dress – New Look
Do you try and cling on to summer? Or are you firmly in the “bring on autumn” camp?
Thanks, as always, for reading! x
