I love yellow shoes. I know the colour is one that a lot of people dislike, or feel won’t be easy to style, but, along with red, it’s one of the few very bright colours I’ll wear on my feet these days – and I find it surprisingly versatile, too. Actually, with a few exceptions, I find I wear yellow shoes with almost the same outfits I’d wear red ones with: I wouldn’t wear it with red itself (I know some people who could pull that off, but I’d feel like a children’s TV presenter from the 80s…), but it looks good with all of the other “nautical” styles I love (It works particularly well with stripes, I find), and it’s also great with black, white, and even green, if you’re careful enough about the shades you’re wearing.
I like it, in other words: and I also like these New Look sandals, which are just £29.99 – and also available in black, if you’re slightly less enthusiastic than I am about the colour yellow.
This style is one that I’ve shown you a lot recently: it’s that chunky, mid-height heel that’s so ubiquitous right now, and while I do wonder if we’re all going to look back on shoes like this in a few years time and think they’re SO 2016/17, the price-point, plus the delicate fabric upper, makes me think they’re probably not the kind of shoes you’re going to look on as an investment purchase, and still be wearing many years from now, so maybe that won’t matter too much to you. My biggest issue here would be resisting the impulse to just quickly take look at the rest of the New Look website while I was buying them, and end up adding a few little things to my basket, on the basis that, “Well, if I’m going to be paying for shipping anyway, I may as well make the most of it!” Just me?
