Lotus Sandals with Bright F & F Jumpsuit - #chicandstylish #linkup

Morning lovelies.
Hope you're all well.

With it being 8th August already I thought I should get this post, featuring my latest jumpsuit out before the weather changes and the Autumnal transitional period begins - although fingers crossed there'll be an Indian summer on the cards for us in the UK!
I picked this bright floral number up in my local F & F, needing an extra item to take on holiday.  This one ticked all the right boxes for style, colour and length - it's just got me written all over it!
So it was a real bonus when I realized my latest heeled sandals from Lotus Shoes complimented it perfectly!

 Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.



When you slip on comfortable footwear you know you're onto a winner.  This was just how I felt when trying out my final selection from Lotus Shoes (here's my first look and my 2nd choice).  My pick of the Robertia Open-Toe* sandal came up to my expectations for not only the design, but the shade too.  It's nice to have a coloured sandal, and as they're a bit thin on the ground for me I jumped on these as soon as I saw them.  As did the lovely Catherine - Not Dressed as Lamb who sported the nude pink version earlier in the season.
The Robertia has a double faux leather strap which has attractive laser cut-out and stud detailing on.  Also the sturdy ankle strap is adjustable for a perfect fit, and big enough to look trendy but easy to do up!  There's nothing more daunting than fiddly little fastenings don't you agree?



Back to the flowery jumpsuit.  Purchased back in June, I'm not sure that it's still in store, and unfortunately F & F aren't available online as they've still not got that part of the system sorted - they must be losing so much with this silly choice!
I paid in the region of £20 for this all-in-one, drawn by the colours - I love anything bold and strong.  It has buttons down the front with a high halter-neck style.  The wide legs finish at midi length, with a big wide belt to draw everything in at the waist for a flattering finish.



**Late edit, thanks to Laurie - Vanity and Me Style for pointing out F & F have some pieces on the Next website - here's a very similar bright yellow version as my jumpsuit is now out of stock!


Nothing better with a tan - vibrant florals on a bright blue background. You'll definitely get seen in something as showy as this.


The Robertia* comes in sizes 3 to 8 and is also available in two other colours - pink and tan.  I can vouch for the 6.5 cm block height to not only walk in but dance in too - I've worn mine ballroom dancing and they are just right!  The go-to summer style is on the website for £45, now isn't that a bargain!
