With autumn now in full swing, the weather can be unpredictable to say the least, ranging from cold, crisp days to windy conditions with heavy rain that leaves us craving cosy nights at home.
September not only signals the beginning of a new season but it also marks the start of a new school year. Even for those of us who left our school days behind long ago, September retains the feeling of a new start as we say goodbye to lazy summer days and hello to fresher weather.
September is here, which signals the end of a lazy summer and the official start of autumn.

When it comes to summer footwear, comfort is just as important as style. Warm weather and activities such as holidays, day trips, picnics and barbeques mean that we spend more time out and about during the summer months, so a pair of comfortable sandals is a footwear must-have.
