Sunday Shopping: Summer Shoes

I am always looking to pare my wardrobe down to just the necessities & there is nothing like 2 weeks of living out of a suitcase to really help you wrap your head around what you really need vs. the extra stuff you are just lugging around! This Summer I really would be all set for my activities with these 6 pairs of shoes:

Metallic Sandals - I own this pair from Jack Rogers & absolutely adore how much the "platinum" color goes with!

Black Wedges - Mine are old from Target, but I am looking to upgrade to these this season.

Nude Heels - I have this pair from Steve Madden & the are the perfect base to any outfit. Carrie Bradshaw might have her "naked dress", but I call these my naked shoes, they make your legs look a mile long!

Birks - I have had this pair since college, the "Arizona" in suede & love that I can give them a second life this Summer (& one that is hopefully slightly more glamorous than my granola-hippie try hard days of yore). Not ready to make an investment in real Birkenstocks, try one of these fashionable Fakenstocks choices below:

Lace-Up Heels - If one shoe is OMG so hot right now it is these! My basic nude pair is from ShoeMint, but I also have my eye on this leopard pair.

Tribal Sandals - Not sure if this is a trend that will stick around for long, so I am going to scoop up this Target pair & love them all Summer (but not be distressed if they don't make it to next year).

What are your shoe necessities?


  1. I just bought those Nine West lace up heels in nude, I'm SO excited to wear them! If I could actually walk in 4"+ heels, I would get the blue ones in a heartbeat. Looking at your list also made me realize that I have white and cognac wedges, but no black *gasp*


  2. i want some of those tribal sandals!



  3. Love all your picks ... except the Birkenstocks. I just can't hop on that train!

  4. Have you ever tried them on? Talk about comfy and supportive!

  5. GASP! Although, cognac wedges are pretty darn versatile too!


Thank you for your comments, they make my day!!
