Summer here in the UK keeps creeping in and out, but it’s safe to say another sandal season is upon us. Though you might see rain in the forecast, on the day, it could be sunshine and in abundance too. The perfect weather to pull out those pretty sandals you bought since February. The only thing that may hold you back is if your feet aren’t summer ready. How disappointing right? That might be the only opportunity you get to wear those pretty sandals all year long. You’ve been eager to get them out and you can’t wear them because your feet haven’t seen a good tlc all winter long.
Talking about pretty summer sandals, I am all about the cute bow/knot trend this season. So, between the crystal embellished shoe trend and the bows, I really can’t tell which I love more. I had to tap in on one of the good stuff, opting for the bow sandals with these flat slider mule sandal from Moda In Pelle. They also come in other colours including baby pink (eeekkkkkk! tempted much).
A pair of No.21 slides are high up on my wishlist, only if I didn’t have a wedding to pay for later this year. Here are some options for the bow obsessed lot, or if you just want to get with the movement, splurge or stay on the budget…
…so, how do you get your feet summer ready for those pretty bow sandals this season? Here are my user-friendly and not overly complicated tips
Let’s be realistic, not everyone can be 100% all year round. Am I right? In between juggling real life and the life we really want, we all tend to neglect certain things. Sometimes when my nail polish starts to chip, it could take me a week to sort out. But, maintenance is key and here are my tips…
- Learn how to DIY your nail polish and squeeze in a session every month
- Choose nail colours that complement your skin tone. I’ve found mine. I tend to opt for deep or dark reds like this Little Ondine in Red red Wine, which I’m currently wearing.
- Opt for a proper pedi during winter. At least, one session. I would normally get mine done in December. Right before the party season. After a good pedicure, all you need is low maintenance.
- Maintain your pedicure with a ‘feet grater’. File away dead skin as often as you can. The quicker you get rid of dead skin, the less build up you get. They are so easy to use and I swear by the cheap and cheerful one I got from Boots a while ago. Finally…
- Get a good pedicure right before summer. April/May is always a good time. So maybe set a date in your diary if you haven’t done so already… (Luckily, I recently discovered Shumaila’s Beauty with a number of beauty salons dotted around me)
The golden rule I live by is to keep those feet moisturised!In collaboration with Moda In Pelle
