Today I went with my parents to a local nature reserve to scout out a small pond where you're allowed to go pond dipping. I wore my new favourite shoes, these awesome jelly sandals - or jellyfish shoes as I usually call them, which I think comes from this book which I read as a child. Of course they're not vintage style at all (unless you count 90s as vintage) , and I don't normally buy modern things that aren't vintage appropriate, but I had an idea in my head of how they'd look paired with a 1950s dress and socks. I'm pretty happy with the look although I have worn the same shoes with other 50s dresses and I think I actually have other dresses which look even better with the shoes. I'll be wearing them all summer anyway, as I like to have a cheap pair of shoes to wear over the summer which go with everything and don't matter if they get messed up. Last year it was these blue lace-ups which I wore until they fell apart.
The socks I'm wearing were a Christmas present from my mum and I've been saving them to wear in the summer because they are too cute to be hidden away underneath trousers and winter shoes. Hopefully you can tell from the picture that the pattern is of some cute little sheep.

Edit: Sun Jellies seem to have been making jelly shoes since 1946, albeit without the chunky heel (according to their website), so maybe these have more vintage credentials than I first thought!
