Feeling Summery in bright yellow and Calla Florence Sandals

Well the heatwave continues here in the UK and that means I get to wear all the pretty things! This yellow top is an old favourite and comes out every Summer. I climbed up to the top of the Eiffel Tower in it almost four years ago! I think this is the first time I’ve worn it with a skirt though. I’ve had this floral print skirt a few years too but have never worn it until now…crazy considering how lovely it is. I think I struggled to find a top to go with it…but low and behold, there it was all along in my wardrobe. It was only when I received these gorgeous Calla sandals that the outfit all came together.

I was instantly feeling Summery in the bright yellow top and gorgeous Calla Florence sandals…yellow always makes me feel more cheerful!

You may remember I showed you the Emma shoes from Calla back in March (coincidentally I was wearing yellow then too!). Calla shoes are designed for ladies with bunions (yep, that’s me!) and fit like a dream. When I slipped my feet into these pretty sandals they gave a sigh of relief. Comfortable shoes do not have to be boring, and here’s the proof. The charming frill detail makes them perfect for a wedding or garden party (they are also available in soft pink).  I was instantly feeling Summery in the bright yellow top and gorgeous Calla Florence sandals…yellow always makes me feel more cheerful!

Henry definitely approves of my sandals…he does love to be in the photos! My husband, on the other hand doesn’t approve of my big glittery sunglasses…he thinks they’re a bit too Dame Edna 🙂

I’me keeping it short and sweet today because it’s my little girl’s birthday and I’ve got to make a cake…my first attempt at a vegan Victoria sponge…wish me luck!

    You look absolutely gorgeous in this outfit, Emma! I’m loving that yellow blouse – it’s so unusual (exactly the kind of top that would stop me in my tracks in a shop!). The skirt is so pretty as well. But the Calla shoes – they’re simply the best. I adore mine – they are the most comfortable shoes I’ve even owned!

      Thanks Suzy! You can sometimes find these tops on eBay – I found one in purple there. The sandals are just amazing, so comfortable 🙂

    Oh my that top is stunning! I love all the pretty ruffles on it and on your shoes!

    And just to think-you had those two wonderful pieces in the closet just waiting to play together. I love that skirt. You have pulled off what I think is the hardest color combo of yellow and violet to perfection. You are so gorgeous in this. Bravo!!!!

    I wrote on Fb, Happy Birthday to your daughter! Enjoy the day! and good luck with the cake! Ive never made a vegan cake before either. This outfit is beatiful on you, love the colors with your complexion. The yellow top is so pretty with your hair, and the ruffled shoes look lovely and go so perfectly with your feminine skirt. I love with outfits from the closet come together!
    Have a great day!

      Thanks so much Jess! The cake I made on Isobel’s birthday turner out great, but I made another for her party and it was a disaster – it was so hot the buttercream curdled and it all ran out, along with the jam. I had to dash out to the shop to get more jam and salvage it…just as the first guests were arriving – talk about stressful!

    Emma, I adore this skirt so much! And the color combination is so perfectly summery and ever so beautiful. Such a pretty outfit! Wishing the happiest of birthdays to your little beauty!

    Those shoes are adorable—I’ve never heard of Calla, but will definitely check them out. I have a bunion too, and it’s sadly getting worse the older I get!

      Thanks Cheryl! Mine is getting worse too, which means I can’t wear a lot of my shoes now. But at least I have some pretty sandals that are comfortable and hide the bunion 🙂

    Those sandals are adorable! And what a beautiful colour! Love the hole outfit! Congratulations on Isobel. I now you succeeded on the cake!

    This skirt is so pretty. I think the mesh detail in the skirt is unexpected and so pretty! Definitely a fun skirt to style!

    That yellow is gorgeous on you. Really, just beautiful and the cut of the blouse is so flattering. XO

    This is such a gorgeous outfit, Emma! I especially love the skirt. I love the sunnies, too. Definitely NOT too Dame Edna! Haha 😉 Hope your daughter has a fabulous birthday. Good luck with the cake! XXX

    That ruffly yellow blouse is so gorgeous! And what a great memory to have worn it to the top of the Eiffel Tower!

    Will have to check out that shoe company, I have a friend who is really suffering from bunions! Thanks!

    And congrats on the vegan cake! I know I saw a picture of it somewhere, maybe Instagram? And it looked lovely!
