The Perfect Sandals from Clarks!

When Clarks asked me 3 weeks ago to pick a pair of sandals from their 2014 summer range, I looked out the window at the raging storms and wondered would I ever wear sandals again...last summer's heat seemed like a distant memory! But then over the past week, spring seemed to make an appearance and I started to think that maybe, just maybe, the toes will get out for some fresh air soon. Also, the team at Clarks told me that their sandals are selling really well as many people left it too late last year to buy. All in all, it seemed like a good time to share these photos.
Having read and obsessed over Sue's sandals last year, I didn't have to think too hard about what kind of style I wanted. I was looking an ankle strap, plain front, black and with a small block heel. Endlessly wearable and comfortable too..

The best thing about these sandals is that they come in regular and wide fit. This style of shoe with a strap across the toe can be a nightmare for anyone with a wide foot - I speak from experience! But these fit perfectly - they also come in half sizes too.
I took these photos when I was going out a couple of weeks ago so you've seen this outfit before but I just wanted to show a complete body shot so you can see better what they look like:
I just know they will be worn so much this summer. Roll on the sunshine!! If you're in the market for some new SS14 footwear, the Clark's range is available on this link, also loving these beauties..

    1. Thanks Jane - yes the wide fitting is a big issue for lots of us when it comes to sandals. Nothing worse than overspill in sandals! x

  8. I think I like your version more than mine - I will definitely take a look at them as I like the small heel which gives us shorties that little extra inch height. They look very flattering on as they don't pinch your feet like some do when they are too narrow across the foot and your foot is a bit squished. I likey :o)

    1. Thanks Sue - I think I love them more now they have your approval I was very conscious of any gapping at the heel but I think you'll agree that's not an issue with these! x

  11. They are a fab pair of sandals, so versatile, a perfect heel and a perfect height, safe for a heel-o-phobe like me!. I love Alex's from The Frugality too they look so cool on her but being a lot older than her I think I may just make them look a little frumpy! xxx

    1. Thanks Frances...I think you could totally rock these. Sue tells me the ankle strap and the gap between it and the toe strap gives more petite ladies a longer looking leg! #fact from the guru of sandals! x
