As soon as spring officially arrived a couple of months ago, sandals suddenly became a surprisingly viable option – despite the fact that it was still only March.
But it’s June now – with the start of summer just seven days away – and if you’re anything like us, amongst the myriad of more serious worries and anxieties that have plagued us all recently, you’ve likely also spent a lot of the last two years in varying degrees of isolation wondering when you might actually be able to board a plane again.
Now that travel restrictions have eased off, and people are actually able to travel (slightly) more freely, our hearts are longing for some sun and a far-flung holiday.
But, thanks to a quite bizarre turn of events, the British weather looks set to actually cooperate over the next few weeks. With temperatures predicted to reach 32°C at the end of the week, you’re not the only one retiring your beloved trainers and chunky boots in favour of something altogether more fairweather.
Footwear is often one of the most enjoyable aspects of fashion, and one of the few wardrobe items that won’t betray you if your appetite through lockdown(s) was anything like ours…
