|REALM sandals: Topshop|
Although at one point in time they used to be one of my favourite places to shop for shoes, it's been a while since my last Topshop shoe purchase. Well, we all know where this is going...
As soon as someone sent me a link to the flamingo version of these shoes, I knew I was going back to an old favourite. And then. Well, then I saw these in the "related items" tab. UNICORN SHOES! I knew as a respected member of #TeamUnicorn, I'd have to make some space for these on my shoe shelves.
When they arrived, I couldn't wait to take a closer look at them. The shoes are a kind of cracked metallic silver leather effect, with ankle straps and a lovely big chunky heel, which is nice and sturdy.
The fronts of the shoes are different with a unicorn on the left shoe. whilst the right shoe is adorned with a heart, horse-shoe and a lightning bolt. I think I'd kind have preferred unicorns on both shoes, but they're cute nonetheless.
One thing which I am super pleased about is the fact that the front strap, which goes over the toes, is thick enough to be not only comfortable but sit in the right place on my foot so as to hide the part of my feet I'm most self-conscious about. This is always something which worries me with sandals or anything strappy!
I absolutely think these are going to see a lot of wear over the next few months - I'm envisaging all kinds of cute ankle socks combinations as well when the weather turns, so they're not just for summer.
What do you think?
