Spring and Summer 2018 Shoes

When the weather starts getting warm out, I get so excited to wear my spring and summer shoes! They are so much more fun then my winter pairs. This spring/ summer there are a few must-have styles that I think every woman needs to try out. Some are trend driven while others are everyday essentials. Plus, I've linked some of my favorites at a great price for you to easily shop below. 

White Soles:

White shoes/ booties are the "it" shoes for spring/ summer! They look clean, cool, and are a great option to wear instead of the traditional black. Don't worry about getting white shoes dirty either because there are simple ways to clean them. Take an old toothbrush and some baking soda then rub them down. Rinse and repeat and your shoes will be sparkly white again.

Try untraditional materials like patent leather that up the 'cool' factor. Shoe styles like kitten heels, sling backs, pointy pumps, block heel, mules, and booties are all great options for white shoe styles. Shop some of my favorites below! 


Denim Shoes:

Denim fabrics go way beyond clothing these days. I love denim accessories like shoes and bags. These peep toe booties are a great example of denim shoes because they are a light color denim, which make them more spring forward. Look for special details when looking for denim shoes like tassels, frayed edges, hardware, and heel shape. Denim is a staple in the U.S. culture and goes well with everything so you don't have to worry about mis-matching. Shop these exact pair HERE!


Peep Toe Booties:

It's not quite summer, but not winter so what do you wear that's perfect for in between. These booties keep your feet warm but you can show off your pedicure too. Booties these days are an all year round kind of shoe. The only difference once the weather warms up is showing a little extra skin. I recommend looking for booties with a little extra detail like lace up, metal buckles, interesting heel shape, and cool fabrics. Shop these exact pair HERE


Floral Flats:

Floral Flats Betsey Johnson Spring Shoes

Flats are an everyday essential, especially if you live in a city where walking is a must. But flats don't need to be so boring or basic. This spring/ summer, look for a fun printed pair. I love floral pairs like this Betsey Johnson pair because the colors are great and they have a little extra something with the crystals. Floral, stripe, animal, and polka dot prints are also another fun alternative. Shop some of my favorites below



More Mules:

Mules are still going strong so grab another pair this spring or even your first! Trust me, I lived in my mules last summer. I recommend investing in a pair that are 1-3 inch block heel. The block heel style makes it much easier to walk in all day and keeps your balance. I also love mules that are embellished! Whether it’s pearls, crystals, or a broach spice it up. Another alternative are getting a pair with a fun fabric. Today, mules come is satin, linen, patent leather, and suede. Shop some of my favorites below!


Platforms and Espadrilles:

Fashion always repeats itself and platforms are back and here to stay for a while. Surprisingly, platforms are also easy to walk in. They provide the foot an extra cushion of support. They also give you height (which I have no problem with haha). Platforms are great flat shoes as well as fancy party heels.

Espadrilles are a summer classic! Perfect for vacations, the beach, or just a weekend walk. The natural earthy looks gives an instant summer feel. Plus they are comfortable and let your feet breathe. 


Kitten Heels:

A trendy heel that is actually walkable. I have no complaints about that. Kitten heels were very trendy back in the 40's and 50's and they are back! Kitten heels today have been modernized and come in cooler heel shapes like a cube, clear, or even a ball shape. They are a great heel option for the office or any other event.

Summer Vacation Looks

I've got five reasons for you to keep scrolling down! They consist of tropical floral prints, ruffles on ruffles, off the shoulder, lace, stripes, major statement pieces, shoes that speak for themselves, and accessories that you'll die for! Have I convinced you yet? These are five looks that I believe you must take on your summer vacation this year! A bonus, most of the pieces I'm wearing are all under $50!! Shop all the pieces below. 

Look 1: 

This summer, it's all about ruffles and linen skirts! You want to be easy breezy while on vacation and a fun stripped ruffle skirt is definitely a piece you want to pack in your suitcase. Pair the skirt with a basic crop top. I love a white and black garment because it can be worn as a basic with just about anything! Last but not least, finish a look with a great pair of sandals with pom poms!

Look 2: 

Shoulders should be sun- kissed during the summer. I love a nice off the shoulder top, but this one outdoes everyone I have ever tried! It fits perfectly, is comfortable, the shoulders actually stay in place, and the top just makes you feel good! Printed skirts are the perfect match with a cute top for dinners during vacation. Finish the look with a pair of basic black wedges that will go with everything and you're set!

Look 3:

A statement top to keep those heads turning is necessary on vacation. This top is my favorite top I've bought this season! Construction is amazing and so is the color! Wear your white jeans while you can this summer and top it off with  espadrille wedges. To complete the look, add some color through you accessories and even a scarf on your bag.

Look 4: 

A little white dress is an absolute must for vacation!! Swap it out for your typical lbd. White dresses will bring out that gorgeous glow you've been working on. I love this little off the shoulder white dress because it is super comfortable, the lace details are great, and it's not sheer! You can wear it belted or just as is! I paired it with my favorite summer gladiator shoes. This is the perfect look for a day filled with a lot of walking and doing touristy things.

Look 5:

Tropical printed skirts are a must on vacation! The print just makes your feel extra summer-y which isn't a bad thing. Top it off with a cutout crop and floppy straw hat and your set. Bring out the colors in the print through your accessories from jewelry, shoes, and bags.
