I can’t be the only one who’s struggling to keep up with the Great British weather. One minute we’re slapping on the SPF, and the other we’re layer-caking cashmere like there’s no tomorrow. Something’s gotta’ give! I left the house without socks on, and cursed my exposed ankles all day long...

No two days are the same for me at the best of times (inclement forecasts, notwithstanding), and a versatile rotation of practical but stylin' footwear proves invaluable in tackling both the demands of the day and the escapades of an evening.

Elegant kitten heels with low-cut collars are, in my opinion, the kindest thing you can do for your calves this side of summer; in verdant velvet, aeydē’s Camilla pumps stand out as a refreshing alternative to the classic black, and work wonders when dressing-up distressed jeans. Plus their deep green works for days that feel more like November than May! Even better? Play it tonal with a complementing colourway (Alexa Chung’s mid-rise flares will do the trick) for a casual yet curated finish.

Caroline wears Álvaro metallic pink sandals and Mother Superior jeans.

On the rare occasion that the weather does play ball, statement (and comfortable! *ehem*) open-toe, perfectly flat sandals mean I can run around town accomplishing things. Álvaro González’s metallic pink versions are a beautiful counterpoint to pared-back denim (via Mother Superior), and convey a look that’s less ‘lounging on the beach’ and more ‘getting sh*t done in the city’ – while working perfectly for both!

Caroline wears Boden Spot Hollie trainers and FRAME trousers.

Trainers that are NOT meant for the gym are never far off my radar when I’m dashing here, there and everywhere; Boden’s embroidered Spot Hollie pair come into their own when teamed with clashing printed pants (like these from FRAME), while Camper’s high-top twosome and M.i.h’s yolk yellow jeans are the epitome of 'off-duty with a twist'. 

Do your worst, Great British weather! I’m ready for you.
