Love is... his and hers Lotus Shoes

Are you old enough to remember the ‘love is…’ cartoons from the 70’s? I am, therefore all I could think about when Marc and I were discussing how to photograph our new Lotus shoes was that sweetly illustrated funny little couple!

‘Love is’  is the name of a comic strip created by New Zealand cartoonist Kim Casali in the 60’s.

Why am I talking about love is cartoons? Take a look at these photos and I think you may see what I mean?

Love is... his and hers Lotus Shoes

Lotus Shoes

Back to the Shoes. Marc and I were kindly sent a pair of shoes each by Lotus Shoes. His and hers…

I chose this pair of sparkling flat beauties: Wren Gold Multi Leather Ankle Strap Sandals


Marc chose this handsome, casual leather pair: Men’s Mackinnon Brown Smooth Leather Loafers


The Verdicts…


5 Things I need for my  perfect shoe…

  • Can they be worn as both casual and smart? Definitely TICK
  • Are they comfortable? very! TICK
  • Soft good quality leather? Oh yes TICK
  • Fit well and true to size, Absolutely TICK
  • Go with at least 70% of the outfits in my wardrobe? a resounding yes TICK

Plus everytime I wear them someone asks where I got them.

I think I may have just found perfection in a pair of sandals! (insert all the heart emojis here)

Now men dont feel the same way about shoes do they? So I was lucky to get a few syllables on the subject… and I quote…

‘Very comfortable, you know you could walk around London all day and still be comfy”  Not bad eh (for a man)

He bought a pair of Vans and the last time we were walking around in London, he came home with a couple of blisters!

Let me tell you his shoes have memory foam in them. They are beautifully made and come in black or brown leather.

    Ashley, this is an adorable post! I’m impressed that you could get your other half to take part. I remember the “Love is…” cartoons fondly. Your choice of sandals is spot on and exactly what I would have chosen too. I may just have to take a look at the rest of the range…

    Have a lovely weekend x

    hi love how you are doing this together. My hub tries to get in on the act but I deter him, vehemently. Those that know my Anna blog will understand:) I have one pair of Lotus sandals and they are very comfortable wedges that I wear in the office. I do love your choice, and how you’ve styled them with the cropped flares.

      Hello and thank you!
      He did take some persuading, but we had lots of fun! My sandals too are suprisingly comfy.

      Thanks for popping by
