Straight to the Point(y Shoes)

Would you believe my c.100-pair footwear archive was, until a week ago, sorely lacking at least 2 essential types of shoe? Now, I'll admit that, at a pinch, although my podiatric landscape would be significantly poorer, I could probably survive without many of the last month's other tootsie-related purchases - the heavenly knee-high glads featured in my last post, the two-tone monochrome strappies, the multi-buckle peep-toe ankle boots snatched up mere days ago, even those long-awaited white courts... But I don't know how I reached this point with neither pointy-toed flat nor mini block heel to bear me aloft.

A far more elegant accompaniment to tailoring and structured skirts and dresses than the ballet pump or flat sandal, but far kinder to feet that actually need to function outside the realms of taxis and chaise-longues than higher heels - how had I missed the holy grail of accessorising all my life? Thankfully, by the time our anomalously searing temperatures and unfortunate lack of chaise-longues forced me out of my heels and into realisation of my shoedrobe's gaping omission, M&S was ready and waiting for me with not one, but two servings of monochrome goodness.

The sweetly sailor-y striped pumps are fairly new in and cost £25, whilst the '60s-meets-granny-chic slingbacks are £15 in the sale - both a great fit and crazily comfortable for points, but the sizing does differ slightly - I'm a 5.5, and needed a 5 in the flats, and a 6 in the slingbacks. Regardless of numbering, my shoe collection life is officially complete - for today, at least.


Are you staying sharp in the heat?
