Spring shoe dilemma

Please help!

Am on annual leave this week and have been sorting out my wardrobe. I really want to make the transition into more spring/summer workwear when I go back next week. I have several lovely wrap dresses which I would like to wear, plus cardigans to wear with them as it is still chilly. I am stumped by footwear though.

I've been wearing brogues all winter, with opaque tights and above the knee skirts/dresses. But as I bought my spring/summer dresses to wear with bare legs or very sheer tights they are a little bit longer and look really frumpy with brogues. I think I need a bit of a heel. Is it too early for sandals with a heel? What else would you suggest?

I have a £50 M&S voucher so anything from there would be ideal. But I also have Clarks and Next. I'd rather buy shoes from a physical shop rather than online as I have large, narrow feet and struggle to find something that fits.

So far I like these but don't know what to do re bare legs and open toes

I'm afraid I can't help as I always have a problem with footwear in these transitional seasons.

I'm just bumping to see if anyone has any good suggestions

Thanks for the bump smile

I've ordered the sandals I linked to plus some closed toe espadrilles into store. Unbelievably M&S don't keep size 8s in stock! I like the idea of the closed toe espadrilles as I could wear tights with them.
