Finally summer is in full flow and the heat is at the perfect temperature. Warm late night walks, cocktails with the girls and hunting for new places to dine have all been on my summer to do list and I must say, as a summer baby, I am in my element. But nevertheless, the summer is about being comfortable in your own skin and owning it with confidence. During this time of year we all get a tiny bit more body conscious as holidays are around the corner, healthy eating becomes a bit of a trend and not to forget bikinis and “perfect” bodies are in our faces constantly.

In my previous post on Practicing Self Love I mentioned a point that most of you quite liked the sound of and that was walking with your head held high. Now… I’m someone to avoid heels in summer so, when I saw girls when I was out for a few cocktails and I’ve even seen a few on holiday in killer heels, and all I could think is “babe, I applaud you”.
Walking with your head held high is so much easier with heels on and I must admit this because there’s just something about being taller that makes you feel a hell of a lot more sassier! So I’m not going to take all the credit for the bright idea that I should have come up with a long time ago, I’ll give that to Lydia Millen who set off a light bulb in my head with this photograph on Instagram – HERE
ESPADRILLE WEDGES – they are the answer, the given and godly shoe, the heavenly idea and mix of feeling like you are walking in flats but actually in heels. I do believe they are the answer to all my dreams. I always thought espadrilles were old fashioned and for older women that needed comfort but my views have definitely changed and I will never make the mistake of pre-judging fashion again. And I mean, how gorg does Lydia look in them! Instantly sold.
These wedges can literally go with absolutely anything. A long summery dress, jeans and a cute top or even just your bikini if you’re lucky enough to have a getaway this summer – why not?! I cannot stress enough how comfortable they are, along with how much they add that tiny bit of sass and class to your outfit. It is definitely my top must have this summer.
For you all, I have linked below my favourite wedged espadrilles that you can shop straight away to get that same confident summer feeling!
