New Look nude/pink sandals, £24.99
OK, so I think it’s pretty obvious by now that I have a bit of a “Thing” for pink right now. In my defence, I’ve lived my entire life up until now without paying much attention to pink, so I guess I’m making up for that now, because it currently seems to be all I want to wear.
Anyway, it’s been ages since I last checked out New Look’s shoe section, and actually, I only really noticed these sandals because they appeared on ASOS. I think you can see from the product shot that the £24.99 price tag is justified, and these aren’t real leather, but if you’re looking for an affordable summer sandal, in a cotton-candy colour, they could be a good option. The two-part sandal, as I mentioned last week, is still going to be big this summer, and while there will probably be no shortage of shoes similar to these, I’d hazard a guess that not many of them will set you back just £25 – or be quite so sugary sweet.
So, what to wear with pink, strappy sandals?
Look, I’m not even going to pretend that I tried to play down the pink here: in fact, I ALMOST went for a pink cardigan instead of the gold top, and while I personally LOVE the “mono-blocking” look, which is very dramatic (especially with a colour like this), and can look incredibly stylish, it can be a hard one to pull off, so I made a last-minute decision to go with one of my other favourite colour combinations – pink and gold – instead. I may have just added this entire outfit (minus the coat, which I love, but which is out of my price range), to my Wish List. Coming soon, to a Shoe Challenge post near you?
