Word on the street is we’re going to be treated to some beautiful spring weather here in London next week, and about time too! We can’t wait to ditch the layers, say goodbye to the coats and embrace the new season. We’re absolutely sick of the cold temperatures and rain here in the YCB office and we’re ready to welcome spring with open arms. Lighter evenings, cherry blossom, pub gardens, bare legs, cute dresses, what’s not to love?
Whilst we make an effort to pack all of our winter clothing up until at least October (we hope…), we’re refreshing our wardrobes with a few new exciting buys. We’re stocking up on polka dot skirts, striped jumpsuits, chic blazers and summertime footwear! We’re oh so excited to finally be able to wear open-toe sandals again. Our feet have been hidden in boots for way too long now and are craving a few rays of sunshine! We’ve got our pedicures booked in and we’re ready to rock a pair of gorgeous wedges with a breezy summer dress.
Top of our wish list at the moment are a pair of beautiful Zaccys wedges, these not only look good but they’re super comfortable too. Thanks to their unique deep high-density memory foam insole, a sturdy wedge is definitely needed after a few too many pimms, are we right ladies?! Handmade by master craftsmen in Spain, Zaccys focuses on quality and attention to detail.
Founded by former eye surgeon Meg Cope, Meg took a career break back in 2012 to look after her youngest son Zac when he was diagnosed with leukaemia. After the incredible care Zac received, Meg decided to name her new venture after him and for every pair of Zaccys sold, £5 is donated to Children with Cancer, CLIC Sargent and Karinaki charities. Fashion that gives back? We love this, and we love Zaccys.
The leg lengthening styles are an absolute summer must-have and should be in every ladies holiday wardrobe this summer. Here are our favourite picks from the website:
Espadrilles are a summer staple, and we adore these Tamara flatforms in faux snake print. Lightweight and luxury, this is the perfect daytime shoe for those warmer temperatures.
Looking for a leg lengthening style that isn’t too high? The Margarita low wedges are your new best friend. Available in a range of gorgeous colour ways including gold faux snake, black, silver and plain gold. Whether you’re doing the school run, heading to lunch with the girls, or heading out for dinner, this super versatile style has got you covered.
Knock em dead with the high wedge style that offers legs for days and an injection of confidence. We are obsessed with these and all of the YCB girls are ordering a pair up for their summer holidays, I mean, can you blame us? We’re torn between the classic black or the fun and vibrant snake gold. Can we take them all?
The slide has been around for a few years now (if you aren’t counting your dads pool slides from circa 1980) and it’s not going anywhere! Ideal for lazy beach days and hanging around by the pool, these are a holiday must-have. Show off your pedi with these beauts, available in both gold and silver. The slides feature a detachable upper which means you get two styles for the price of one! That’s the kind of fashion math we like.
So what are you waiting for? Delivery in the UK and Europe is FREE and you’re donating to fantastic causes, we couldn’t think of a better reason to treat yourself to a gorgeous new pair of shoes. Happy shopping!
