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.

Leather sandals with raffia bow, €39.95 (were €89.95) at Massimo Dutti

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.

Espadrille trim stacked flatform, €160 at Dune

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.

Blue strap sandals, €96 (were €160) at bimbylola.com

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

Silver strappy sandals, €29.99 (were €49.95) at Zara
