The arrival of summer

The littlest member of our family has been embracing our recent May sunshine in a new pair of navy Saltwaters.  I know Saltwaters are 'having a moment' but they are great sandals. I first bought some last summer (Eloise in pink and mine in red) and being waterproof, they were brilliant for rock pooling on the beaches of Cornwall.

We bought ours from our fave and now nearest (yay!) shoe shop, Oddsox. It's a lovely independent children's shoe specialist that sell great shoes.  One of the owners, Jo has children at the same school as Z and E and whilst we never manage to catch each other for more than five minutes at the school gates (she has 3 children too) I often see her whizzing by on her bicycle. 

Oddsox is very much my type of shoe shop (you'll never have to take a numbered ticket and wait 20 minutes to be called and the girls shoes don't just come in pink - hurrah!).  They also sell Campers, Birkenstocks and Pom d'Api summer shoes too.  They're the only Bristol Salt-Water stockists (size 3 - 8) but are selling out fast (I was too late for a navy pair so have gone for tan this year).  Look out for them on my Instagram!


  1. I got tan last year and keep looking at the red ones in the toast catalogue. Paid on Monday so...

  2. I have been looking at these sandals for a while now. Didn't realise there were any stockists near by. Might just have to pop along soon x

  3. My boys and I have a deep love of salt waters too! We now pop off to the beach or stream not worried if our feet get wet! Natalie xxxxx


Thank you so much for leaving a comment, they brighten my day.
