I know this post may seem a little late to some of you given that it’s about sandals and we are well and truly into Autumn now. But let me explain why. This Summer was all about the Pom Pom sandal, if you were going anywhere sunny they were a must have accessory, but I only managed to get my hands on a pair recently, hence my delay.
I’ve been very lucky this year to have been on some great trips, but as many of you know, my biggest trip of all is coming up in just a few week’s time and therefore I have spent the last two months or so trying to get my hands on the perfect pair of Pom Pom sandals for my trip. Finally I found them!
Back in June I spotted this very cute, colourful pair in River Island and loved them, but when I went to buy them they were sold out everywhere in my size. All over Ireland in stores and online – I even tried the UK stores but nothing. Nada. So reluctantly I had to admit defeat, believe it was not meant to be, and start looking elsewhere. But much to my dismay, none of the ones I could find were anywhere near as nice as these, or if they were, they were WAY out of my price range. Don’t you just hate when that happens?
I had all but given up until a few weeks back, when I decided to do one last search, a final desperate attempt to fill a longing, when low and behold out of nowhere, they appeared back on the River Island website. What?! I don’t know how it happened, maybe they had extra stock lying around somewhere, or the Pom Pom gods were just being extra kind that day, who frickin’ knows. But all I know is I bought them, they arrived, and I am thrilled!
They are just so gorgeous, super comfortable, and I can’t wait to start pairing them with all my travelling outfits as soon as we get to Bali. I just love it when a plan comes together!
