Today I'm linking up with Erika and Andrea for Favorite Things. Today's topic? Summer shoes! I normally live for boot season. I get sooo excited the first day of fall weather (I get so eager that sometimes it's as early as August, if I get lucky and there's an overcast day--but I usually overheat all day and decide to not wear boots again until about October). But this spring I found some awesome spring and summer shoes and I don't know if I'll ever be ready to go back to boots! (Most of these photos have been shared on this here blog already, so I'm sorry for the repetition!)
My first favorite pair is by Vince Camuto. I bought them back in March for about $80 (I think they were 30-40% off). They were well worth it. They also came in red and black, but the red sold out, then my color, and now it appears they are all gone! Below are just a few of the times I've worn them. These are crazy comfy. I got 103 active minutes (thanks, Fitbit!) one day walking to brunch and then from brunch to the library and back...wearing these shoes! I love that the heel is chunky. The leather is super soft and doesn't rub too!
I found a similar pair by Vince Camuto here!
I also ordered these black sandals in March. (I ordered these and the above sandals for my Mexico trip!) Nordstrom featured the black sandals on their Facebook page and I fell in love. I could've purchased these in both black and tan or the above shoes in both black and tan, but I like that I have both great neutrals in totally different styles! I love the chunky heel on these. Again, no rubbing! I can walk a lot in these.
My gold sandals are great! I'm not much of a flip flop person, so these are my substitute. When I first got them, they rubbed the inside of my foot. That stopped after the first wear, which I thought was weird. But anyway, I love the support that the footbed shape provides!
These wedges are by Dolce Vita and are from last year. They had so many different color combos, but I was drawn to the jade green and cognac pair. I don't wear these nearly as often as the above three pairs, but I adore them and they don't hurt my feet! And of course I can't wear them as much since they aren't completely neutral like the above pairs.
This is the most similar pair I could find by Dolce Vita.
I get tons of wear out of my faux Keds through pretty much all the seasons. I have a polka dot pair and a leopard print pair. All currently available colors can be found here.
I had to include these sandals. I don't even own them and I think I've blogged about them at least three times now. I mentioned in this post that they are the only pair of shoes I'm allowed to buy for the foreseeable future. (Maybe if I buy them I'll finally shut up about them!)
Can't wait to see everyone else's summer shoe picks (and not buy any because as I said I can only buy the above sandals)!
