I nipped in to York yesterday and the first place I dived in was Mango and the first thing that caught my eye were the strappy sandals which have been getting a lot of love all over Instagram and blogsphere. I did have my eye on them but as I couldn't decide on which colour was the best and I was too lazy to order four pairs of sandals and having to return three pairs, I basically did nothing. As it was, all four colours were in store. The colour of choice for most is the black. I chose the snakeskin. Why? Because they immediately struck me as the most expensive looking out of the batch with black coming a close second. And on top of that, the greyish colour is more flattering on the foot for me and better for elongating the leg-line. Depending on the style of a shoe or sandal, black footwear quite often cuts my legs off at rather unflattering points and make them shorter and stumpier than what they already are. Why add to that eh?
And you know these are staying right? And that I'm not going to change my mind and return them. Because guess what?
I've cut the tags off!

Last Note :
- For the record, I tried on a few pairs in the different colours - the zip can be a little stiff at the back but I've found that I don't actually need to undo the zip anyway for putting on the sandals as you can loosen the laces enough to slip your foot in.
- As these are not leather, they can look a little plasticky in certain finishes - pick carefully.
- They come up quite high on the ankle and may be a little uncomfortable for some. I tried on different colours in the same sizes and some were more comfortable than others - go figure.
- For once, I'm glad I didn't order online. I definitely needed to see the four different colours in real life as what I thought I was going to go for ended up in fact being my last choice.
