Having an organized and stylish place to keep your weed that you can leave out in plain sight is an option any adult deserves.
Zara is one of my favourite high street stores for shoes; time after time I've been searching for something specific - classic riding boots or a simple pair of ballet pumps - and while other shops have produced versions that are quite frankly a little too clever for their own good, Zara has just the thing.
Which isn't to say they don't do directional, fashion-forward footwear too - there's plenty of that (and some slightly more, shall we say, 'eurodisco' stuff which is best left firmly on the shelf.) Just look at these neon beauties, which I have a horrible feeling have sold out already as they're nowhere to be found on the Zara site. Sigh...
Amazing neon sandals from Zara which I can't find anywhere on the site (this is a campaign shot) which is really annoying as I WANT them.
Nevermind, there's plenty more where they came from, for example these orangey-red suede platforms, which would add a satisfyingly chunky counterpoint to a floaty summer frock.

I couldn't decide which of the three colourways I like most for this 'basic' sandal. Each is a dainty example of colourblocking and all w0uld work with cuffed blue jeans, a full skirt or a shift dress. The heel isn't terrifyingly high so they'd be a smart choice for a summer wedding too. And LOOK - they're the European cousin of xoJane.com's Julie's black basic Zara sandals and she wore hers for 10 hours so they must be good!

Oh but wait, I saved the best for last... Ta-da! Raffia! Stripy! T-bar! Chunky heel! They make me think of coconut-smelling suntan lotion and wicker beach baskets and Negronis and crisp cotton shirtdresses and bougainvilleas trailing down plaster walls; basically, they're summer holidays in sandal form.

Now you may be starting to realise that I'm actually a bit stingy when it comes to fashion (did the fact I have a regular feature called The Stingy Shopper give it away?) and at £59.99 these woven sandals are towards the top end of what I'm prepared to pay on the high street. But dear reader, I'm only human and sometimes even I can be persuaded to sacrifice my penny-pinching principles for a little bit of loveliness.
So what do you think - should I buy the sandals? And which item in your wardrobe made your heart beat a little faster the moment you saw it?
