By this point in the year, I’ve normally ear-marked a large number of Zara shoes for possible purchase. The brand is one of my all-time favourites, and the fact that their footwear is normally pretty affordable (These sandals, for instance, are just £39.99) makes it all too tempting to convince myself that one more pair won’t hurt.
This year, however, has been different: I’ve seen plenty of shoes I like, but not many I absolutely LOVE. (The clothes, on the other hand, are another story…) These pale blue sandals fall into that category: I do love the colour and the shape, and I’m fond of a t-strap or two, but something about them prevents me from adding them to my basket and racing to checkout. I suspect if I saw them in real life, that might change (Note to self: I’m long over-due a trip to Zara…): they’re the kind of shoes I think would work well with tons of colours, and would look particularly good with all those floral prints that are everywhere right now.
In fact, here’s one of the other items from my Zara wish list which would look good with these:
This floral midi skirt is so pretty, and although the dominant colours are red and orange, there’s also enough green, blue and yellow in their (not to mention the white background) to allow this to work well with just about anything. If it doesn’t sell out in my size before pay day, I can’t promise I’ll be able to resist it. In fact, I’m pretty sure I won’t. The same print is used on this dress:
This boat-neck style is one which Zara have done before, and I’m a huge fan of the shape. When pay day comes, it looks like I’ll have a dilemma on my hands…
