Shoes that are HOT for the Summer

Shoes that are HOT for the Summer

We all know I have too many shoes. But let’s also be real, I’m going to buy more shoes. I’ve been stalking the trends, fashion-y girls on Instagram and what’s been hot in the stores. Some of these shoes I’ve already nabbed up, others are on the wishlist, but regardless these are what shoes are HOT for summer.

Flatforms

Flatforms

Flatforms – Flats + Platforms = Flatforms.  These have been around for the last few years and are still going strong.  Basically because you get the height of a heel and the comfort of a flat making them versatile and walkable.  I like these for summer events like concerts and fairs.  They look good with summer dresses or casual shorts.  I picked up these raffia ones from Shoedazzle.

Vinyl

Vinyl

Clear Vinyl – I’m not sure what the exact name of this trend is but basically a shoe with a clear vinyl strap, usually in a 2 strap design one thick one thin, but there are a couple variations.  I’ve seen more of these in a heel but also some flat sandals or even wedges if that’s more your gig.  I’m stalking these ones from DSW but I’ve also seen some good versions at Express.

Square Toed Sandals

Square Toed Sandals

Square Toe Sandals – Carrie Bradshaw fans unite!  The square toe sandal circa late 90’s is updated for us now.  This version from Zara has been dubbed the “it” sandal of the summer but honestly I’m seeing more of that vinyl trend IRL!

Slide Sandal

Slide Sandal

Flat Sandal Slide – This has been big for a bit too, and also mega functional.  I was OBSESSED with this look at the end of the summer last year and picked up two key versions; A  snakeskin slide from Sam Edlerman and a crystal embellished slide from Express.

Athletic Slide

Athletic Slide

Athletic Slides – Or pool slides, whatever term you like.  If you are an athleisure kind of person then you need this.  I personally want to get those old school Adidas ones that I had in the 7th grade, Adidas Adissage.  Confession, I only got rid of them like 2 yrs ago because they were warped from the hot CA sun.  Oh brings back memories of obsessing over them in the Delia’s catalog and finally convincing Mom to get them for me from Kohl’s.  To bring things full circle I better order them for in-store pickup from Kohl’s right now, I’m sure they have a coupon ;  *UPDATE*  The husband got me some!  Score!

Ew... crocs...

Someone has a case of the Mondays…

You know what’s even hotter than these summer shoes?  Summer shoes on sale!  Because I’m JUST now getting around to this blog post most of the summer fashion is on major sale to make room for back to school shopping!  Between Amazon Prime Day and all the other retailers trying to match them you can DEF score some major deals.

Trending Tuesday: Iridescent

If the world of alicia was the internet #iridescent would totally be trending. This holiday season I’m totally digging on all things iridescent.  Its like capturing the twinkle in the twinkling lights; capturing that glimmer in St. Nick’s eye.  Either way… sparkle!  And ’tis the season to sparkle!
