Last Sunday was Mothering Sunday in the UK, and luckily the sun shone for the whole weekend. From where we live in Dorset, the coast is easily accessible. A half hours drive either to the south or the west and we will be on the beach. The question is not where shall we go but what shall I wear on our feet? My answer is always Summer mules, sliders, slip-ons whatever you call them (I prefer mules) I adore them and have several pairs. This year I’m planning on wearing flat summer mules for the whole season…

So on Sunday we popped down to the coast for a stroll and a drink. G & T for me and a Beer for him. This photos were taken in Pool harbour just down from the quay, it was a busy but happy place on Sunday. All the Mums were celebrating! I wore casual as usual! Jeans a Jumper and my new mules, read on for the details…

New Penhurst Summer Mules

The ultimate ‘wear anywhere’ footwear, casual yet elegant. Van Dal are a lovely British company that have been making shoes in England since 1936, I am very impressed with the quality, and the attention to detail. This beautiful pair was a gift, I chose myself from Van-Dal Shoes They are called Penhurst, in Molten Snake

Also available in a multi coloured pastel print sooo pretty! Both these styles will go with anything and can be worn anywhere. Thats all you need for a pair of shoes right? Did you read my recent post with my Van Dal classic loafers?


“…Penhurst is a classic mule loafer. Featuring a slip on backless design, they boast traditional saddle styling, leather lining and a low block heel for comfort. Finished in metallic molten snake print suede leather, Penhurst is perfect for smart or casual wear during the changing seasons…”
