Designed by Meg O'Donnell
At the beginning of the year, summer felt like a false memory. Having spent so much of our time inside, the idea of warmth and sunlight hitting our skin felt too good to be true. Thankfully, the sunshine has now officially arrived (along with the easing of restrictions), meaning we can now enjoy all the delights that the British summertime has to offer.
So what better way to celebrate the arrival of the warm weather than with a new pair of sandals?
