I have bought many a shoe in my time, but the one piece that works in summer is a simple nude sandal. There is nothing like a ”one shoe’ packing dilemma to focus your mind. So which heel, will I be packing this summer?

Yes it is my nude sandal- my top pick  is a super reasonably priced pair by Schutz from Shopbop or the divine  Shoescribe, I have to admit have become addicted to this online shoe emporium .

It goes with everything and it doesn’t look like you are trying too hard. I also think a thinner heel, though not as practical just makes your legs and ankles look thinner. I always keep a pair of flats in my bag and swap over if there are cobbles to be negotiated. Checkout Cocorose for some great options or I have a pair of Newbark flats that I fold up in my handbag.

I know you will all be dismayed at me citing a Kardashian, but they have nailed the nude heel. I am wearing the Alexander Wang pair above, they are so comfortable and the perfect height.



So to find one?  It’s not easy as they should be super simple and the heel must be thin, but not too thin.

Saint Laurent, Stewart Weitzman or Alexander Wang are the Holy Grail and worth a splurge.

I think as this is a shoe you can wear with everything that it is worth investing in, as you want them to be comfortable and be your go to shoe!
