As I may have mentioned, I'm going on holiday in less than two weeks =] I'm super excited because this is something I pretty much never do. GOODBYEEEE BORING LONDON! (I'll be missing home by the time it's over, heh.) So, and I don't know how, I STILL have no pairs of sandals e_e
I've already posted about hunting for the right sandals. I've finally got some now! For real!
- cannot separate my toes.
- MUST be easy to slip on and off. Seriously. NO buckles, NO tie ups, NO strappy crap. Meh.
- must be a bright colour. It's SUMMER! =]
- preferably flat.
- not a fan of my toes so don't want them completely bare, but not covered either, I guess that would defeat the point of 'sandals'.
This is what I bought!

White Chunky Strap Cleated Sole Sandals [ Here ]
Purpose: a good pair of sandals to wear with pretty much anything - short skirts, loose trousers, kaftans, all my maxi stuff, even skinny jeans, whatever really. This was a really bizarre pick for me because I NEVER wear stuff like this. I usually find them really unattractive!! But this caught my eye when I was out with Miss Lovely, I tried it on and thought WOW. The stock picture really doesn't do it justice so here's some of my own;

Crocs Huarache Flat Fuchsia/Grapefruit [ Here ]
Colour: Pink, Orange and yellow. perfect.
Purpose: to wear with my maxi dresses and skirts, maybe down to the beach. EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY comfortable. I've never had Crocs before (the standard ones I find ugly. Sorry, but it's true!). I never knew Crocs were so satisfying for the feet :3

Bow Mule Nude Sandals [ - ]
Purpose: flip-flop substitute (I don't like actual flip-flops, may have guessed from the Criteria above...). Something cheap to wear to the beach, my sister said, so I wouldn't ruin my two other good pairs of sandals. Primark Sandals - reliably cheap.
My first choice were these New Look sandals, £17.99, very cute, though I would say a little expensive considering that there isn't much to them.
What are your favourite pairs of sandals like? :3
