Kate Middleton may love her sensible Stuart Weitzman wedges (already sold out, in case you were wondering!) but thankfully we non-Royals can have as much fun as we like with our shoes, and go crazy with pastel colours if we happen to feel like it. Right now, we're having visions of the beach, with dripping, candy coloured ices, and these lovely shoes from Bertie are just the ticket to seaside fun.

Made from soft leather and available in three classic beach hut colours, the shoes will bring summer to your feet in an instant. We love the rope-style wedge and the cheeky peep-toe that makes these shoes perfect for wearing with contrasting pastel coloured nail polish. Available to buy now from John Lewis, they are yours for £85. 

Wedges are still very much the shoe du jour, and are invaluable when you're wearing the sort of epic maxi-dresses that high summer demands of us all.
