Summer Sandals - Black / Neutral nudes / Embellished detail / Comfort styles under £40

Summer is here and one of the essentials is sandals. I for one go for comfort and style as there is little point in limping around just so your little tootsies look good and lets be honest hobbling and wincing because your feet hurt due to your uncomfortable shoes is never a good look!

I've had a look around and found my favourite sandals:

BLACK:
Black with silver detail flowers flat sandals for summer - Dorothy Perkins £20
Black gold bow detail flat sandals with slight wedge- Dorothy Perkins £36
I love black sandals. They are versatile to dress up or dress down, go with everything and a classic colour. The top pair has ultra cute flower detail and the bottom has the bow with patent leather which is girly and summery but not too much. They are both not 100% flat which is better for your feet and more comfortable and I think both of these look pretty comfy. I actually have a pair from Kurt Geiger that are very similar to the second ones but instead of the gold bow they have a brown suede bow and small gold buckle detail. I wear them all the time as they go with jeans or maxi dress or leggings.

COLOUR:
Mint Green flat summer sandals with gold flowers and sparkle detail - Asos £28
Coral red flat summer sandals - New Look @ Asos £7.99
Blue Watercolour Fabric & Chain flat summer sandals - New Look £17.99
Stud zip back flat summer sandals - New Look £19.99
We all need a bit of colour, especially in summer. Even if you are wearing a simple neutral outfit or black etc, coloured sandals give a colour injection and spice it all up and make it summery. Oh I love the mint ones. They are so summery and pretty with the flowers. The coral ones are simple yet still give some colour and the blue water colour ones are very beachy with the gems, beads and blue colours. The studded red ones I also love. They are simple but have just enough detail. The colour is gorgeous and I love the covered heel area as it gives more support. I have a pale pink pair with diamante detailing that runs the length of them.

NUDE:
Nude patent T bar flat sandals with gold toe detail - Steven Madden @ New Look £34.99

 Pieces Cathie Light sand nude Leather Flat sandals - Asos £34.00 
Nude, like black goes with everything. Nude is light and airy and looks classy and classic. I adore the second pair. They have the cream and black detail that adds that little extra and I think these look really expensive, much much more than their price tag. I don't own a nude pair, but I do have a light brown casual  pair which I wear a lot but they need replacing.

COMFORT:

Papillio by Birkenstock Turin Wide Fit Toe Post Sandal - Birkenstock £39.95

Those of you that don't own Birkenstocks really need to. They are so uber comfortable and like no other 'sandal' you will have tried. I wouldn't go sightseeing or for a day trip in any of the others but Birkenstocks I would. They feel quite hard when you try them on but you have to 'break them in' and they mould to the shape of your foot and soften a little.  The support is fantastic. My pair has a bronze strap and they have been worn and worn. When I lived abroad they were the only shoe I wore in the summer when I knew it wasn't a short little trip as I could rely on them to support and be comfortable. I've had mine over 3 years so the investment is worth it. This pink pair is very tempting and there are lots of other colours, patterns and styles to choose from! The men's ones are nice too as they are clean and simple and give great support, so check those out for the men in your lives.

  1. I love colourful sandals in summer however black and brown sandals need to be a staple in ones wardrobe. From your wish list I love the Mint with chains and flowers New Look sandals. I see my self really rocking them. The coral ones are also cute - those spikes give them an edge.
