Without wishing to sound like anyone's mother, a pair of grey suede sandals really does come in useful for the latter part of summer, particularly when it comes complete with a nice chunky cork  heel to lift you up in those ultra-long maxi dresses you insist on wearing!

I'm wearing my own pair right now, and find that they team up nicely with my high summer garb, which is why I'm recommending this timely bargain from Miss KG. Originally £65, the sandals made from real suede will stand you in good stead from here until (at least) September, and they'll look good with tights too after that as part of a colour blocking look.

So if you're a size UK 5 (and I know that's a fair few of you), you might want to head over to Kurt Geiger and snap up one of the last remaining pairs. I can guarantee this will be one purchase you won't regret...

£19 (was £65) at Kurt Geiger
