Boden Serrana Sandals - Something sparkly for your spring Wardrobe on a non-sunny Sunday!

 

With our son having been poorly, I have spent quite a lot of time recently watching survival programmes, together with programmes about sharks, crocodiles, snakes and "Bakery Boss." With our daughter, I have watched many bridal, and toddler and tiara, type programmes. Enjoyable as it has all been, I am so grateful that they are both now better. 


It was during one of these many TV sessions that I decided to try on my new Serrana sandals from Boden (£52.51 to £61.41) which come in a variety of colours including gold, aqua, black, hibiscus, navy glitter, tan and zebra. I didn't like the shots against the carpet but thought that the ceiling made quite a good backdrop, which explains the spotlights. It must be gravity that makes the sandals look slightly too big - but they are fine when my feet are where they're meant to be i.e. on the ground!


I can't wait to wear them and this is exactly where I would like to take them with me - Shell Beach on Herm - my favourite beach in the world.

  1. Please stop photographing footwear with your legs crossed - it makes it really difficult to get a proper sense of what the shoes look like! (plus it looks as though you don't know left from right....). Nice sandals though!

    1. The first photo with my legs crossed was to show the heel height (unlike the one straight on) so it was meant to be helpful. The second one was just achingly hard to do on the abs! Hopefully the one with un-crossed legs gives a proper sense of what the shoes look like. And most of the time I don't know my left from my right, or which way is up, so that's fine. Glad you like them!

  2. I think they look great waving around in the air. So funny.
    Glad everyone's better and you can get your feet back on the ground.

  4. Brilliant idea posing agains the ceiling! I have coral toes just now - so nice to have one's feet looking good again (even though I have not worn sandals yet!) Btw, several of the Boden reviews on the sandals say they come up narrow - your views? (although I think you look as if you have narrow feet...?)

    1. Hi Carol - there's something about painted toes that makes it feel like spring isn't there? I meant to mention that yes, they are fairly narrow but I wouldn't say overly so.

    1. Hello! I think that they are used to me now. The one with the beach was slightly trickier as it involved a stomach crunch and lots of wriggling around to avoid the door frame and various bits of furniture. That got them slightly wondering!

    1. Thanks Fiona - I think having a chandelier in the bedroom would have been even better - but we're not really chandelier kinda people!!!

  9. Hi,

    Are these sandals true to size in your opinion? They are just what I am looking for and look great on you!

    Thanks!

  10. Jewelry gives you that classy and sophisticated look especially if you make it complement and blend well with whatever you choose to wear. Whether it for a wedding or for that special occasion, it will completely change your look.
