Playing on the summer trends of neutral palettes, animal prints and fun texture – shoes can make an outfit! Shoes are a huge weakness of mine and this season the wedges are stealing my heart! A 4ish inch heel is an instant confidence booster – provided you can walk without falling!
Remember when you used to play dress up? The list included lipstick, hair accessories, a glam outfit and heels that were too big? It started in childhood and continues on. We all feel special in a pair of heels!
This season’s designers have added some fun. Look at these Marc Jacobs! Pair these with a Maxi dress or a simple silky white tee and jean shorts, big hoop earrings and a pony tail…you get the picture! And how sophisticated are the Via Spiga’s! You can find these in fine department stores, but I stumbled across this exact pair called ‘epic’ in a free standing Via Spiga store in SoHo in NYC last month. LOVE THEM! How about the JRenee’s? These aren’t your mom’s flip flops! What a brilliant design team for Seychelles – a cool casual tribal wedge and fun flirty floral print wedge! Who can ever top Tory Burch….she is always one of my top 5 shoe and handbag designers – classic, yet on trend fun stuff!
In case you are more of a classic shoe girl…..here are just a few more I’m loving this summer! One for every budget…come to mama! Now…..I just need a bigger closet!
Do you dare walk on the wedge? Who are your favorite shoe designers this summer?
