OK: I want to know where these shoes were last summer, when I was hobbling my way around every shoe store in the greater Miami area (including more than a few Nine West branches…) desperately looking for a pair of shoes that would look good, but not shred my feet. Where were you, Nine West ‘Leggy’?
I’ve said it before (and I’ve no doubt I’ll say it again), but cork wedges are my summer shoe saviours. I absolutely swear by them when I’m going on vacation, and I know I’ll be doing a lot of walking: I’ve never been one to go down the Birkenstock/sneakers route for that kind of thing, and I find that a cork wedges are one of the best options for me, because they’re generally comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time in, but they also add a little bit of much-needed height to my short little legs.

This would be a really typical vacation look for me. I spotted the playsuit a few days ago, and although it’s not something I would ever dream of wearing at home, for some reason it feels far easier to get away with something like this when I’m on holiday, and in a hot climate. (Oh, and it’s also available in red, if you’d prefer something more colourful.) As I said, however, these shoes would work with so many of my other outfits that I’m just cursing the fact that they’re £95 – here’s hoping for a summer sale!
