laura-lees-wedges.jpgSummer is the time when we're all allowed to embrace our inner hippy, or so the commanding voice of fashion tells us, so it's time to go for the colourful, the child-like and the hand-embroidered. These super cute wedge shoes by queen of the sewing machine Laura Lees have all those qualities and more, and they're on sale at a reduced price at My Sugarland.

What makes these shoes more than a pair of throwback platforms is their sizeable wedge, which brings them right up to date and will help keep your patchwork maxi dress from scraping on the floor. We love the alternately coloured raffia embroidery, and would love to see it contrasted against our tanned feet.
