the heeled gladiator

It’d be a tough job, but if somebody asked me to narrow down my favourite kind of summer sandal I think my answer would be the gladiator. It’s a style I usually associate with laid back flats but I’ve recently seen heeled styles everywhere and needless to say they had made their way up to the top of my shoe wish list. When House of Fraser got in touch inviting me to pick a pair of shoes I knew instantly what I’d be searching for.

Dress: Peacocks | Shoes c/o House of Fraser | Earrings c/o Joy

These shoes by Head Over Heels (from Dune) tick all the right boxes- the perfect chunky heel, comfortable and stylish. I can wear these all day at work without feeling like someone is torturing my feet and they go with so many things! I hadn’t heard of the brand before, but with a huge array of amazing styles and fabulously affordable prices I’ll be looking there again.

House of Fraser is full of little surprises like that, brands I can’t find anywhere else, their own Therapy range of clothes and accessories as well as gorgeous home ware (among many other things). I used to skip over browsing in there as I had wrongly assumed it was out of my budget, but actually although there are some designer and high end goods available there is also a huge array of affordable bits and bobs.

For this outfit I pulled on one of my favourite summer dresses from Peacocks last year and accessorised with these fabulous Pineapple Earrings from Joy which just make me so happy. I’ve enjoyed every second of this summer so far, the gorgeous weather giving everyone a much needed boost…I’ll be sporting these in to the Autumn to cheer up the duller days.
When did you last venture in to House of Fraser? You probably really should!

  6. Those shoes are so pretty and they look gorgeous with your dress. Well chosen! I love shoes with heels but I’m too much of a wimp to wear high heels all day, so these would be perfect for me xx
