ZARA Ankle Strap Heels / ZARA Strappy Ankle Strap Heels w/ Buckle / RIVER ISLAND Ankle Strap Heels
I’m not ashamed of my current obsession with minimal ankle strap heels! They are so sleek and stylish, and go well with a number of outfit looks! These ones I love, and I will be wearing throughout the summer! Just have a look at some of my favourite ladies rocking the ankle strap!

    Haha I’m not ashamed either ! I feel like these heels have become a summer essential. I mean, they really do complete an outfit ! Thanks for sharing them Shirley. I recently did a post featuring a white pair from Zara. I’m obsessed 🙂 xx

    Ohhh, they are amazing! But how to walk in them? ;( I think my legs would be killing me in these!

    • Reply Kimberly Route March 24 2015 at 6:44 pm

      Yes they do. Oh how I wish I could by them. I wear 41/2 in a heel. Can someone help me. Small feet delima.

        I mean buy them. Mind moving to quick. Lol

    God, I love those shoes they are so elegant and sexy. I wish I was able to walk in these. I just can seem to picture myself in thin heels like these. I’m such a wedge kinda girl.

    OMG those heels are gorge! I need a pair. OR FIVE!
    lol 🙂

    im obsessed with them too !! especially the zara ones !! nice !!

  • Reply Axe Axea May 12 2013 at 12:46 pm

    I agree, they are very feminine, stylish, go with lots of styles of outfits and they make the legs appear longer 🙂 Love all of your choices.

    I wasn’t a fan of this trend just because I could not bring myself to pay so much for something so minimal but I think I might reconsider and invest in a nude pair. Much love from across the pond. XoxoX

    I love those heels. I am looking for some to buy. Now I need to go to Zara ASAP.


  • Reply Hollie Galvin May 14 2013 at 4:41 pm

    The black Zara ones are my favourite! I have quite wide feet so I have to go for a chunky heel and covering more foot space haha. I always go to Zara for mine too x

  • Reply theaadisa May 14 2013 at 10:46 pm

    I love this! I have your red and nude ZARA ones in black…looks like I will be getting the red ones as well! Great chic collection, excellent for summer! I hope to get other colours too…on the hunt for orange and blue.

    If I could actually withstand wearing heels, I think I’d also go for a minimal strapped heel!


  • Reply Rosie Cumberlidge May 16 2013 at 8:53 pm

    They are so gorgeous, I need some of these. I lovee the nude ones.


  • Reply Nkechi May 17 2013 at 7:47 pm

    I am in LOVE with strappy sandals this summer! I currently only have one pair but I’m sure that’s soon to change lol. I’ve had my eye on the ones from River Island for a while now…

    A girl can never have too many heels but im impressed on how you are not afraid to stock up on the same style shoes, different colour. Kudos!!
