Lola Ramona flat shoes, £83.99
Stripes. Polka dots. Bows. You don’t need to be a long-time reader of this blog to know exactly why these shoes appealed to me, do you?
Actually, if you’re a fan of any of the aforementioned shoe features (but the dots in particular), Lola Ramona is a brand you should probably think about checking out. These aren’t the most “grow up” styles out there, sure, but they’re packed full of fun, bold prints, and although I can’t speak from experience, never having tried the brand personally, something about these shoes suggests they’d be comfortable to wear, and good quality, into the bargain. While many pairs of flat shoes can have a bit of a flimsy look and feel to them, these look sturdier than your average ballerinas, and that fact might make the £84 price tag seem a little more reasonable.
If you’re not into flats, meanwhile, the brand has a similarly-stripey pair of heels available at the moment, too:
These are both chunkier and strappier than I’d wear personally, but if bold stripes are your thing, well, stripes don’t get much bolder than this.
