I'm hooked on these Vionic sandals! #chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hi there lovelies.  How are you my friendly over fifty bloggers?

Are you on a summer holiday, looking after children/grandchildren, working or studying?  Whatever it may be I hope you're having fun.
I'm just about surviving the boredom of drinks on tap, delicious food, sunshine (hopefully) laughter and playtime with the kids.  Yes you guessed I'm still on holiday with hubby, my eldest and her family.  Sorry if I'm rubbing it in 😋  Do stop by next week to find out how it all went. X

Today I thought I'd give another look to a recent acquisition to my shoe-collection, these Vionic espadrilles.

Since I took these beauties on my last holiday they've been on my feet quite a lot.  You know when something is just so comfortable they're what you turn to without even thinking about it.  That's just what these Vionic espadrilles have become - a firm (get it) friend for sure.
A couple of weeks ago I visited my best friend who's been re-cooperating after an operation.  The sun was shining, I was wearing THE sandals and I just so happens my best friend's daughter is my photographer, yes I know it was cheeky, but I asked her to take a couple of shots in said outfit with new sandals.
She actually used her new phone camera, I'm just so impressed with the outcome - what do you think?

Finding all the blue options in my wardrobe, purely to wear with my pretty blue sandals.
I pulled out this fabulous floral skirt and tried to find a top to match, I've normally paired it with pinks, but thought about the deeper blue in the skirt's flowers.  I've worn this bold cobalt blue box top before and felt sure it would look good.  Grabbing the dainty beaded three tier necklace, I was good to go.

Not until I saw these photos did I realise how lovely these pieces look together, pleasing to my eye and comfort on my feet - win win!

Thanks for joining the #chicandstylish #linkup today, I appreciate your support.

My favourite from last week is Claire who can be found at Claire Justine.  I was so taken with Claire's dress, who she met and what the cause was.  Going through the menopause now, I'm seriously going to be looking into this product - sometimes we need all the help we can get.  Pop over for a read, you'll be impressed I'm sure.

  17. My oldest son swears by Vionic flip flops; he has flat feet and they give him all the support he needs so his feet don't bother him after a long day of walking. I've been tempted to try a pair myself but have only found women's flip flops. I definitely need to see if I can find some cute shoes like yours.

  18. Classy and trendy. I love how this outfit came together and the shades of blue, top and shoes, work so well together. I could totally see myself wearing this to the office.

  19. I love those espadrilles Jacqui, they'll go with so many outfits. Really pretty skirt too! Thanks for linking up!
