Finding the perfect summer evening shoe

At the moment, I am obsessed with the strappy caged style sandal. Everywhere I look, they are on the T.V, celebrity feet, all over social media, everywhere, but on MY feet!

A couple of weekends ago hubby and I went to Abu Dhabi, to meet up with an old friend of hubbys (seriously, everyone seems to pop up in the UAE, but that's for another subject, lol). We went to one of my favorite bars on Yas Island called the Y Bar. It's fun, trendy, great location and they do a gorgeous steak!...

Wanting to wear my new maxi (see here), but when looking at my shoes they all seemed to 'wintery' and closed toe. Thinking a caged sandal would look amazing with the skirt! Unfortunately, time (and budget) was against me, lol. 

In our local mall, there's a shop called Max Fashions (which really is, the Middle Easts version of Primark). I managed to pick myself up a lovely black, strappy, sandal.

Not exactly, the 'oh so fashionable caged sandal all the celebs are sporting at the mo and fashion magazines seem to be featuring, but for me, they're Perfect.

I love the straps around the toes, the wooden heel gives them a little edge and the closed back keeps them looking chic. The patent finish really gives the shoe an evening look.

At only 52 aed (£8.50/€10.30/$14.15) They are a serious bargain and surprisingly comfy too.

Sadly, I haven't got any photos from the night in Abu Dhabi, but they did look really good with my new maxi skirt. I'm sure I will be wearing the outfit again (hey, I'm no celebrity and can wear an outfit more them once! lol!) So, I will make sure to get some pics of it and be sure to update you all with ootd posts!

Have you found yourself the perfect shoe for those glamorous summer evenings? 
Would love to hear what you're all lusting after at the mo!

Keep Sparkling
