Sometimes a trip to the park is all it takes to give me some perspective. London is so glorious on days like these, it’s almost difficult to remember the crazy awful weather that came before.

We are so lucky to live near some of the best parks in the Capital but Greenwich Park has a special place in my heart. It was the first park I visited in London and I remember going for jogs there in my first year of uni. You should know, I am the worlds worst jogger. Embarrassingly bad. My right arm seems to take on a life of its own. I no longer jog.

Today was unexpectedly incredible weather wise. As soon as Hubby finished work we hit the park, sat on a bench, marveled at the phenomenal view and for a short while I forgot about any worries.

It also was the perfect opportunity to wear my new favourite sandals. When I say favourite, I mean…..I am crazy about these shoes! Whilst I adore saltwater sandals I choose not to wear them because they’re made from leather, so when I found these lookie likey pair in Dorothy Perkins I was ecstatic. They happen to have them in red and tan too and I am sorely tempted to buy both.

Not only are they super comfortable, they also happen to go perfectly with virtually my entire wardrobe. That’s probably a gross exaggeration but the fact remains – I love these sandals.

Sandals. Park. Hubbie. Peace. Bliss.

    Hahaha, due to “Friends” being on in our house every night (hubby is obsessed) all I could picture whilst reading your description of you jogging was Phoebe running away from Satan (the neighbors dog)If you’ve seen that episode you’ll know what I mean 😉

      Yeah, these were the last pair in my size in the store – so annoying, as I wanted the red and tan too, grrr. Maybe they’ll bring them out again seeing as they were so popular!
