NEW SEASON FLATS (FOR THE FLIP FLOP FATIGUED)

There’s something so very September and back-to-school about a shiny new pair of autumn flats that never fails to hit us around about now. The sandals we’ve been wearing for the last four months are all washed up, on their last legs, and the new season ensembles we’re putting together just don’t feel right somehow with half-chipped toe varnish and fast fading tan lines.

No, what we need right now is a brand new pair of boxfresh boy brogues or some Peaky Blinders Chelsea boots. Shoes that gets our louche summer feet back in line and say they mean business when we’re pounding the pavements of this fair city. So, never ones to shy away from a bit of virtual shopping, we’ve rounded up our pick of the best that are tantalisingly only a mouse click away. Some make us want to don mannish tailoring, others just feel so AW’14 it hurts, but mainly, they just absolutely hit the spot for how we’re feeling now… somebody pass the Clarks measuring contraption, we’re off to shop shoes!

Bella’s hankering after these petrol-esque lace ups from & Other Stories. They’re pretty Beetlejuice.

Selina is seriously considering a second pair of these butter-soft brogues (and woops, they’re on sale, so it would be stupid not to, right?).

Emma loves these glossy beauties from J.Crew because they remind her of the part in Breakfast at Tiffany’s when Holly says, “Would you be a darling and look under the bed and see if you can find a pair of alligator shoes?”

Celia can’t shake her Chelsea boot crush and is loving this pared-down version from Whistles.

Clementine’s love of Liberty print has no limit and she now wants needs a pair of these.

Finally taking after her father, Margherita is lusting over these super elegant black Church’s (and is wondering if one year is enough to save up to buy them before they go out of season?).
