I got these Carvela ‘Australia’ peep toes courtesy of Sarenza back in 2012, and I think it’s fair to say they very quickly became one of the most frequently-worn pairs of shoes in my collection. In fact, I love them so much that I actually ended up buying a “backup” pair, because I was worried my existing pair would wear out through constant use and then – horror of horrors! – I’d be left without these wonderful shoes in my life.
Why do I love these shoes so much? It’s mostly because of the pale pink colour, which is the perfect “nude” for my skin tone, allowing me to wear them with absolutely everything. But quite apart from that, these also have a lovely, curvy shape, and are really comfortable to wear considering the height, so they’re now one of my go-to pairs. When it’s warm enough for peep toes, I wear these shoes at least once a week, and they’re also one of the pairs I often take with me when I travel, knowing that they’ll work with everything in my suitcase (and everything I pick up while I’m away, too).
I’ve already saved these shoes in the current shoe challenge, so here’s a quick look back at some of the ways I’ve worn them over the past couple of years, in no particular order. These shoes are still available at Sarenza, where they’re now on sale for £84, and also available in blue. If you like nude shoes and high heels, I promise you won’t regret buying them…
