My Favourite shoes from Duchess Kate’s fave brand

I booked my Summer holiday on Saturday, and so I am already planning my holiday wardrobe. And whilst I will shop around for an array of swimwear, pretty sundresses and accessories, there is only one place I head for my perfect summer wedges. And, it seems I am in good company.

LK Bennett shoes have gained notoriety in the last few years for being a favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge and her sister Pippa Middleton. But, for once, I have the beating of Kate, and can happily say I got my favourite LK Bennett shoes before the Royal Wedding, and hence missed the demand for everything that Kate wears.

The Rosie wedges are my summer shoe of choice – I wear them with everything.  They just look great with anything you throw on, from Jeans to a pretty printed dress, with the white leather looking fresh and fabulous against a suntan. I love the adjustable strap, which means the shoe remains comfortable, even if, like mine, your feet swell in the heat. The cork heel is a real 1970s staple, and as a lover all things 70s, this is another huge plus for me. And they are so comfortable, perfect for a day shopping or sightseeing, remaining comfortable even if you spend hours on your feet.

I love my Rosie wedges so much that I am currently compiling a list of other LK Bennett shoes that I want to add to my shoe collection. Top of the list are the Patent Leather wedges in the glossy patent navy shade that I think would make a nice alternative to healed shoes in summer.  I’m also just a little bit obsessed with the Shilo leather stiletto heels in red leather. This is a softer coral/red shade rather than a tomato deep red, which I think makes these the perfect design and colour for adding something bright to your summer pastels.

    I am a fan of LK Bennett shoes. They are more expensive than the average High Street buy, but seem to last forever. Frankly, you can’t beat good quality.
