Lotus Sandals - for a special occasion.

Hello, and how are you all feeling on this Thursday morning?


If you're living in the UK you'll know we're experiencing 'Flaming June' at the moment. Phew!!!
I'm not going to start with the ... "It's too hot"... "we need cooler/wetter weather" I love the hot weather, and all too soon this could be over and we'll be reaching for our woolly jumpers and the heating button!!  I can hear you shushing me now - sorry.
Let's not start thinking of that just yet!

So what are we all thinking of? 
I expect like me, you're thinking of special occasions that normally happen when the weather is warmer; weddings, christenings, days out and the like, a special event that we can dress up in our finery, feeling delighted and resplendent in our 'special' dresses.

That being said who nearly has a melt-down because they can't get shoes to match an outfit or comfortable fitting sandals to pleasure your feet on these long and eventful days out - see, I'm not the only one lol.
Well ladies look no further here's where Lotus shoes can help in your hour of need!
With a sensational choice of footwear, colours, styles and matching bags your quest will be over long before any pushing, shoving and pulling in the stores has begun! AND there's free UK delivery on orders over £40!  Here's where you can see my first encounter with the established brand of Lotus Shoes.
With a wide range of unique styles influenced by current trends & traditional designs making long lasting collections you'll adore through-out each season.



When I spotted these Cute peep toe sling-backs* in pastel pink I fell for them straight away.  I've got endless garments that will match these stunners, but wanted to show them off with both these two dresses that have been long acquaintances with me and my wardrobe.
One very formal from Jacques Vert the other more casual from my favourite store TK Maxx.









Sling-backs are always a stylish & comfortable option so along with the peep toe and heart cut-out motif detail they are just that little bit different to make you stand out from the crowd.  The clutch bag compliments these sandals & gives a really elegant finish to both my outfits.


With a spongy sole plus the mid-height heel both will have my feet purring all day, looking dainty and trendy at the same time.  My heart is all over these hearts - ha ha ha!
 

The Matching bag* will be a great addition to my bag collection and I can see me using this time and time again throughout Summer and into Autumn too.

Visions of tan or navy blue outfits married with blush pink come to mind - pure pink - perfection!
Featuring an internal pocket and chain strap, the lazer-cut detailing this clutch will bring to life so many styles.

Here's the second dress from TK Maxx, it's a heavy jersey that drapes rather well over the inner petticoat - hopefully skimming any lumps and bumps!
The hanging neckline works well with a necklace & cap sleeves cover the top of my arm, which again I feel is a flattering look and quite the opposite to the first dress, but which one do you prefer?






Having been to Ascot a few years ago & remembering the fashions and outfits - both dresses would have been suitable for the Royal Enclosure on Ladies Day at Ascot, these sandals and bag will be right at home stepping out among royalty and celebrities the like, only thing missing is a hat, so maybe it's just as well I didn't attend this year. Lol.

Switch over to Lotus Shoes and have a gander on their site,  where you're sure to find plenty of shoes, sandals and bags, that will be perfect for YOUR special occasion whatever it may be!

Please leave a comment and let me know what and where your special outfit is for - I'd love to hear from you. X

A big 'Thank you' to Esther Ruby for taking my photos again - they're super. X

Bye, bye for today see you Monday...




Disclosure: Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however my opinions are 100% honest and my own.

  2. Looking lovely, Jacqui and great photos. Those shoes are perfect for summer, almost nude so the perfect leg-lengthening shoe (and I could do with some of that!).

  3. I quite adore the second dress, cap sleeves are just one of those things on my never-wear list so that effectively put garment #1 on the back burner in my eyes, Jacqui :) and your slingbacks are DELIGHTFUL. What a delicate shade of blush and those little hearts are cut-out is such a visual treat that could easily pass for scalloped edges, braided accents, and everything pretty :)

    1. Good lord, I really shouldn't write in such haste. I meant to say that those little cut-out hearts are such a visual treat. And how easily they could pass, at first glance, as scalloped edges, or braided accents, everything sugar and spice and all things nice essentially :)

  5. These are the best sandals that I liked the most because these are not too much heavy, light weight and give an attractive look.
