Founder talk: Jenni reveals her favourite summer heels

This summer season, the Iris pink heels have been one of the Calla shoes I have been gravitating to the most when styling my outfits. When designing this model, my goal was to create a statement shoe: the type of shoe that could turn even the dullest of outfits into an eye-catching one. Without a doubt, these heels have successfully secured a place in my Top 3 favourites of the SS2019 collection.

I made the decision to have my shoes handcrafted in Portugal, which I love because the quality and the comfort of my shoes are factors that are very important to me. What I enjoy about the Iris is how versatile they are. With a beigey pink tone for their base and the velvet plum bows, these heels can take on any style of outfits and any colour! And, most importantly, I can walk comfortably in them without having sore feet by the end of the day. The shape of the Iris panel hugs my bunions, my feet feel secured, almost as if the shoe was carrying me.

I have been wearing many skirts and dresses with the recent heatwave. The Iris heels and my maxi pleated pink dress was a match made in heaven. The velvet plum bows added a touch of colour and texture to the overall look. Furthermore, my bunions were completely concealed, which is a definite bonus.

I went to the races last weekend and loved how the shoes added that “wow” factor to my outfit. I knew that I would be on my feet for most of the day, however, I really wanted to feel chic and classy for the event and could not imagine my outfit without a pair of heels. The Iris did not let me down and I was very happy to combine both elegance and comfort in this look.

The yellow from the lower part of the dress really complimented the pink tones of the shoe, I was pleased by this colour palette.

As a mother of two young children, I am often on the go, so sometimes slipping on a pair of jeans is an easy day-to-day look. I found that the Iris really added that “put together” effect in this look.

These heels are a real trick into making people believe you’ve put some thought in your outfit when, really, you just threw on a tank-top and jeans last minute before leaving the house.
