Sometimes, the high street really gets on board with a mad catwalk trend. With sporty embellished sandals it’s taken them a while – Christopher Kane debuted them in his spring/summer 2012 catwalk collection – but man, have they got it right this summer! When you’re investing in something silly like a sporty embellished sandal, you probably don’t want to spend a fortune on it, so I’m thrilled that there are so many reasonably priced options around this season.

You see, I recently went to Bicester Village and tried on a pair in the Marni store. Even at the discounted price, they were still more than Β£300, so although I really REALLY loved them, I left them behind and returned to London with a heavy heart.

But look what I could have instead, and for a fraction of the price! I’ve already featured the Zara pair once but they are so good I had to include them again. And I’m very tempted to invest in a glue gun and some massive glass stones and just customise my own pair of Birkenstocks…

One thought on “ Stone me! Brilliant high street jewelled sporty sandals ”

  1. Well, Hannah, I have to be honest: I would have gone for the embellished Marni… They will definitely still look fantastic next year. However, as always, you have very good choices on your blog. Good luck with the book.
