Summer is the time for shorts, crop tops, and open toe shoes. In honor of showing skin, I thought it would be neat to blog about shoes that I am loving this Summer.
2016 is all about platforms, wedges, and chunky heels. We are bringing the 70’s back! I’m not going to ignore that I love nude and cognac colors. I feel as if my whole closet is brown with a mix of black and white stripe tops. I’ve tried to venture out and purchase different colors, but I can’t help what I like.
Marilyn Monroe once said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” I believe that shoes give us confidence and compliments. I am a short girl, but with the right shoes I can feel six feet tall without the literal height.
These are very 70’s Steve Madden “Lavii” Platform Sandals. I purchased these ones from Tilly’s online. These are in the color Cognac Size 7. They run a bit small so I went half a size up, I’m usually a 6 1/2. These shoes go with everything and are my favorite shoes by far. They aren’t shoes I would walk in for hours but they are okay for a night out. They are simple and perfect for summer. They are only 4 inch platforms which are shorter than I usually wear but I am finding that I like shorter heels vs tall heels that are straining and uncomfortable. I wanted the Natural Leather color which is more flesh tone but they were sold out, but I think these are just as beautiful.
These shoes are just a cute and perfect for any summer dress and pair really well with white clothing. They are comfy and have a 3 inch platform making them wearable for errands, brunch or whatever! I purchased these beauties at Nordstrom Rack. These run very small so I got these in a whole size and half up. The brand of these shoes are 14th and Union and are a 7 1/2. I love the ankle accent twist as well as the beautiful detailing on the platform.
For black sandal lovers, I found the perfect pair. These sandals are a bit out of my comfort zone but I fell in love! I think the detailing is unique and I love the white soles. I think white soles are really in this summer. Not only did I fall in love with the style, I feel in love with the comfortability. They have an extremely comfortable padded soles making walking around the city a breeze! These are from the brand “Soft” I purchased these sandals at Nordstrom Rack as well. My mom and I loved these so much we got a matching brown pair.
Last but not least and back to what feels like more my style and color. These are Adrienne Vittadini “Charlie” Sandals in the shade “Bone”. I purchased these adorable and comfy sandals at Marshalls. When I first saw these sandals, I was drawn to the braided detailing around the sole and I liked that they had a mini wedge to give me an extra inch of height, what short girl hates height? They are so comfortable and wearable with every outfit and give off a summer beachy vibe. These are my go to sandals when I want to run errands and still go out after.
