Book your pedicure now because open toed shoes are the only option for this unbelievable weather

Book your pedicure now because open toed shoes are the only option for this unbelievable weather

Who would have thought it, but it appears the good – I mean amazing – weather is set to continue… indefinitely. So book your mani pedi now and shop one of these pairs of gorgeous (and breathable) open toed shoes.

These sandals are pure Cos; simple but with a twist. The knotted detail adds a flourish without being too girly, while the butter-soft pink leather is feminine without being sickly sweet. Cos always strikes the right balance.

Knotted leather sandals, €99 at Cos

A touch of animal print always looks chic. Zebra print can often look a little fresher than leopard. The cute pom-pom embellishment on these sandals creates a nice balance with the sexiness that’s associated with animal print.

Simple, chic and a wear-with-anything staple, these white shoes will make dressing for the extreme temperatures a breeze.

Samba sandals, €50 at Topshop

These Massimo Dutti sandals are such a great option for work. The neutral shades are chic and understated for the office, while the raffia texture brings a lovely sense of summer to these shoes.

I love these shoes from Dune. The croc-effect leather and raffia trim adds texture, while the blue and white stripes give them a fresh maritime feel. A perfect daytime shoe when temperatures go sky high.

Spanish online retailer bimbylola.com always offers something a little bit different. I love the cobalt blue, patent leather offered by these flat sandals – the combination feels unexpected and modern in a summer shoe.

There’s a little bit of disco fever about these strappy sandals, so they’re perfect for celebrating the warm weather in.
