Seeing as summer is just around the corner I thought I would do a little post on sandals, not just any old sandals - chunky ones.
When I was about 11 (we're going back quite a few years now!) I found the most amazing bright blue platform sandals in New Look. This was when I was massively obsessed with the Spice Girls to the point where my entire wardrobe looked like I could be mistaken for the 6th member of the popular 90's band..... just kiddiiiing!
I thought I looked really cool, but in hindsight my ridiculous stick insect legs made me look like a giraffe with blocks of wood stuck to the bottom of my feet. Maybe now that I've got some extra padding on my thighs with some added cellulite these shoes could actually work for me.

I'm really loving the vast array of sandals out at the moment, so many different styles and colours to choose from and I want them all! I have chosen a selection that would suit all different tastes and styles. If your a sporty kinda gal then the Vagabond Dioon Sandals would be perfect teamed with some plain black joggers and a white boxy tee for a chic minimal look, or wear the La Moda chunky buckle sandals with a bright kimono, denim cut off shorts and your best sunnies for a festival look! Alternatively if your still channeling your inner Baby Spice then the white platform gladiator sandals from New Look would look super cute with a baby pink co-ord!

 Unfortunately this new chunky sandal craze is not ideal if like me your wardrobe space is limited - do Ikea even do space saving solutions for chunky sandals?! Probably not. I will just have to limit myself to a few of these beauties so that I can pretend to be a 90's Spice Girl wannabe again!
