Summer is itching to appear (promise), we had our sunny spell and now the rain refuses to go away.

More than being very upsetting and rather annoying, it makes it difficult in choosing the appropriate footwear. It is morally wrong to be wearing boots in the months of July and August but unless you want soaking wet feet, sandals are not an option.

Step forward the ballet pump, a hidden gem of a shoe, chic for work and play, they can be formal in black or add a summery splash of colour in a gorgeous array of brights. My favourites have to be the Chanel-esque quilted flats, in black, they are perfect for pairing with jeans, vest and blazer for that preppy casual look or a skirt and shirt for that smart office outfit.

These Lanvin, available at Net-a-Porter, are just divine but at £325 they may be beyond your price range, instead why not opt for these bargains courtesy of Linzi at just £12.
