There’s so many shoes in this world and so little time to try and buy them all up. In the words of Carrie Bradshaw, “Men I may not know, but shoes I know.” Really I know enough about men, (sort of) and I love them, but I may love shoes just a tiny bit more. Yes, shoes won’t hug you, but they’re always there to brighten up your day when you need them. Men too..sometimes. Haha!
Anyway, with so many options today, it can be hard to decide what to buy and where to buy it. Yes, we want to spend, we have that part down, but if you’re like me, and you have to shop wisely in order to still be able to eat, you can’t buy any shoe that strikes your fancy. 😢😬👛👠
To be honest, you only need 5 pairs of shoes to get you through the summer. They go with everything and they’re easy to pair up with outfits and accessories. Here are my top 5 picks for the summer:
- 1. The lace up sandal, as shown above. These are by Steve Madden. I’m so in love with this sky blue color right now. I painted my nails that color and have bought so many blue things this summer. Serene and beautiful. 💙 The sandal looks great paired with jeans and dresses.
- 2. The slide sandal.
These sandals look great with literally everything. Mine are from Gap. They have an easy casual cool that’s so perfect for the summer. Here’s how I styled them:
As you can see, pink jeans, slide sandals, and flowy tops make me very happy! You can find them at gap.com. 😉👡
I also love this simple and cute slide by Michael Kors & here’s how I styled those. (Digging tropical vibes right now.) 🌴 ; You can buy the sandals on Macys.com & the romper at UrbanOutfitters.com.
- 3. The espadrille. These cuties are by Sam Edelman. Funny, comfy, and adorbs. What more do you want? Espadrilles in every color? Me too. 🌈 You can buy these at shoebuy.com.
- 4. The espadrille sandal. Seafoam sandal and all accoutrements by Urban Outfitters.
I love this pretty seafoam green color. Gorgeous and so summery.
5. Vans Authentic Low.
Nintendo is a throwback to my childhood and Vans are a throwback to my high school days, not to mention being forever cool. Pefect with shorts and a t shirt.
Loving the simplicity of this look. California through and through.
Cute & whimsical. 😀💜
So those are my 5 summer shoe picks. Is my list different than yours? If course there’s always room for more…😉
