Florence is quite possibly one of the most adorable shoes in the collection, maybe because there is something almost nostalgic about it- it almost reminds you of the shoes you had when you were little. That said, it isn’t too ‘little girly’, and at the same time as making us feel slightly sentimental, it also manages to be beautifully elegant. This is largely down to the carefully designed almond shaped toe, which isn’t too round or bulbous, which makes all the difference. The front of the shoe is made from an ivory floral mesh which not only looks really pretty, but is also rather practical as it allows your foot to breath when you wear them, making Florence a perfect choice for warmer weather. They feel really lightweight too, as there is no lining on the front of the shoe. The flowers on the top are made from a romantic mix of ivory and pale pink suede, with tiny leather leaves in gold and silver leather.
As with so many Rachel Simpson designs, there is some really lovely detailing on the back of the shoe- in this case a soft scalloped V-shape in ivory leather which adds to Florence’s subtle vintage vibe. The shoe ties around the ankle with an ivory ribbon, again demonstrating the shoe’s definite vintage influence, and also means it’s a great fit whether you’re ankles are thin, thick or somewhere in between. It’s a slightly quirky shoe, and one to fall in love with whether for a wedding, party or summer event.
Fits true to size, take your regular size.
