The Best Bargain-Priced Sandals for Summer

Hi everyone, and happy Saturday!

I feel like the weather skipped right over Spring and now it’s suddenly super hot every day.

I’m certainly not going to complain about nice weather, or the opportunity to wear all of my new sandals on a regular basis.

With Summer basically upon us, I wanted to share all of the great new shoes I’ve been wearing lately and where you can find them.

As usual, I got all of these on sale and they’re still priced really well.

These Valentino dupes from Amazon are perfect, and such a great bargain at under $20. Valentino is one of my favorite Luxe brands because of their more edgy styles. The rock stud is one of my favorite design elements they use, and these sandals look just like the real thing for a fraction of the price.

My sister actually gave me these Franco Sarto wedges because they were a little too small, and I happily took them off her hands! I’m building quite the collection of wedges lately, but I can’t help it. I love the cute but laid back style that wedges have.

These Steve Madden slides are my favorite new shoe! I love the spikes and I’m also pretty into white sandals this year. I’ve always been a fan of Steve Madden, so I’m not at all surprised to find myself obsessing over something of theirs this season.

Speaking of Steve Madden, these Madden Girl sandals are so sparkly and pretty. I’ll definitely be wearing them on warm Summer date nights this year. I love a versatile shoe, and I could see these pairing well with both casual and dressy looks.

This pair of Sam Edelman sandals is another one I’ve been giving a lot of use so far this year. I do own other Sam Edelman shoes but this is my first sandal from the Circus brand. The first time I wore these, I was pleasantly surprised by how cushioned the sole was. Super comfy and cute!

Those are my Summer shoe recommendations for today!

All of the shoes shown above have lower price points and are really stylish.

I’ve worn and will continue to wear all of them for the rest of this Summer and, most likely, many Summers to come.

You’ll definitely see more Summer fashion finds from me soon, so be on the lookout for future posts.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂 ❤

Top Picks: Spring Shoes

Hi everyone,

Spring is finally upon us and I’m excited to change up my wardrobe a bit.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the winter and the snow, but I tend to buy a lot of warmer-weather clothes in the offseason and it’s nice to be able to finally show them off.

In addition to new Spring clothes, I’ve got plenty of Spring shoes to wear and I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.

All of these are pretty cheap, which is always a plus in my book! I’ve included links for everything below the pictures.

Espadrilles

This is actually the first pair of espadrilles I’ve bought for myself in years, and I’m excited to wear them all Spring/Summer.

When I purchased these online, I didn’t notice the sparkled heel (does this happen to anyone else when online shopping, or is it just me who fails to look closely enough at the pictures?) but it was a nice surprise when I unboxed these because I really like that extra detail.

The neutral pink of these shoes can go with many different outfits, and because of their style and extra sparkle they work well with both dressy and casual looks.

Sneakers

You have probably seen these Nikes all over my Instagram and even in some pictures on my blog.

I love the unique color of them and they are so comfortable.

I can’t recommend these sneakers enough and they are available in a variety of fun color combinations.

Sandals

As I mentioned in my Intro post, I definitely have an edgy side when it comes to my style.

I love anything with skulls, studs, or spikes, so I love that these sandals combine a bow with cute little spikes.

I also love the unique color of these and wore them constantly on my honeymoon in Hawaii a few months ago.

Sandals

This is another flat sandal that’s more plain but looks really nice with a summer dress.

These shoes are definitely a great Spring or Summer staple and (as you can see a little bit in the picture) I’ve already been giving them plenty of use.

Sandals

A heeled sandal is a great way to dress up any outfit.

I included these shoes in my February Sales Haul post but wanted to mention them here again because I think they’re so pretty and versatile.

The block heel is also great because it’s easier to walk in and doesn’t make my feet hurt like other heels often do.

Heels

These lavender pumps are beautiful in any season, but the color is especially perfect for Spring.

I’m already thinking about what outfit I can pair these with for Easter, but I’ll undoubtedly find other events to wear them to all season long because of the pretty, light color. Bonus—they have a slightly padded sole so they’re very comfortable.

I’ve tried to include a variety of shoe types rather than just all sandals or sneakers, even though that is what I gravitate towards most often.

The fun thing about fashion is that there are so many ways to change it up and every day or activity is an opportunity to wear something new or different. 

Are there any new Spring shoes you’re excited to wear, or any old ones that you bring back every year?

As you probably know by now, I’m always on the lookout for great new styles. 🙂 ❤

On Trend: Top Picks of Snakeskin

Hey all,

Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite snakeskin pieces.

I wasn’t too into snakeskin in the past, but now that it’s more popular and there are so many different variations, I find myself really liking it as an outfit accent.

Here are 3 of my favorite snakeskin pieces, with links to buy!

Purse / Similar | Sweater | Pants

This purse from Express goes well with any outfit that includes black, and I love that the pattern is just on the top flap. The chain detail also adds extra character.

Sweater / Similar | Purse | Pants

This is one of my favorite sweaters that I own right now. It’s super comfortable and flattering, and is a great price since it’s from H&M.

Sandals | Jeans

I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear these. I love how subtle the snakeskin is on these Muk Luks; they’d add a nice touch to a basic outfit.

I’m probably going to do a few more On Trend posts. Comment below to let me know which trends you’re loving, and want to see my top picks from.

Thanks for checking out this post and I’ll see you next time! 🙂 ❤
