My search for neutral coloured wedges continues with Miss Selfridge’s ‘Windsor’ wedges. These caught my eye over the weekend, not just because of the colour (or the lack of colour?), but because of the pretty little bow on the toe, and the woven sole. These say “summer picnic” to me, and would be the perfect sidekick to a sun dress, or even a pair of shorts: comfortable enough for a stroll in the sun or a spot of sightseeing, neutral enough not to detract from the colourful prints we tend to see at this time of year, and pretty enough to satisfy my shoe-loving soul.
One word of warning: although these are described as “nude” on the Miss Selfridge website and look nude in the photo above, I noticed that one of the user reviews on the site says they’re more of a gold colour in real life (Aside: don’t you just love websites which allow buyers to post reviews of the items? I’m always disappointed when a site doesn’t have these now – they can be indispensable if you’re wondering which size to go to, or what the colour/fabric is like in real life). That wouldn’t necessarily put me off, because I have a large space in my heart for gold shoes, but it might mean you’d be better checking these out in store if you think it would bother you.
If you want to go ahead and order online, however, they’re £48 and you can click here to buy them.
