OK, so I might be getting a little ahead of myself, possibly even jinxing us, but can we please all agree that this gorgeous summery weather means that we are finally going to get a great summer. I’m feeling all positive that this week’s Friday Favourites is dedicated to the 7 summer shoes that you are going to need. We have a new style from Converse, more feminine and in silver, we have the effortless cool flatform wedge, the classic espadrille sandal and there’s even a bedazzled pair of comfortable loafers in the mix. Basically, I’ve put a list of my favourite summer shoes to cover most occasions.
Summer Shoes: 1. Asos, Mermaid Embellished Loafers, £35 // 2. Warehouse, Wrap Around Flatforms, £55 // 3. Boden, Espadrille Sandal in Coral, £49.50 // 4. Topshop, Wave Flatform Espadrille Wedge, £56 // 5. Public Desire – Tessa Knee High Strap Sandals in Black, £29.99 // 6. Public Desire – Chloe Perspex Heeled Ankle Boots in Baby Pink Patent, £39.99 // 7. Converse, The Chuck Taylor All Star Gemma in Silver Foil Leather, £59.99 via Office //
Top of any summer shoes shopping list for me is always a new pair of trainers, whether that’s a new pair of New Balance or Keds, this summer it’s all about the new Converse style, the Chuck Taylor All Star Gemma, which has been given a feminine update, so a little thinner and pointer, with extra comfort inside, plus they come in cool metallic foil leathers. I’ve gone for the silver, as they appear in a style post next week, but the gold and red are also stunning, I’ve added them in the shopping panel below if they are more your thing.
When it comes to summer I live in flats and these classic espadrille sandals from Boden are perfection, I do love the delicate cross-over ankle strap, and the coral colour is divine. Plus as always with Boden shoes, these are comfortable and come in other colours including gold and navy.
My favourites and if you only buy one of these seven summer shoes it has to be these gorgeous Topshop flatform wedges, seriously how lush do they look in the tan colour, FYI they also come in black. The flatform cork sole just gives this shoe something extra and I love the ankle tie-up laces. I think these beauties will look hot worn with flares denim jeans, or even cute denim shorts when it’s really warm.
You guys know how obsessed I was over the Public Desire Dior perspex boot dupes, well they’ve been updated for the summer in some cool patent colours, I’m in love with the baby pink version, but there’s also coral and baby blue, seriously swoon-worthy boots.
For festival season, why not try these updated gladiator style flats, with multi strap detailing all the way to the knee, just be prepared for some rather unusual tan marks on your legs!!!
Most of the styles I’ve chosen are a little casual, for me summer shoes are about comfort, but I’ve found a pair with sparkle and comfort built in, these exquisite embellished pink loafers from Asos. Seriously how comfortable and uber-pretty are these, plus they are only £35, bargain right. Pair with skinny jeans or a midi skirt.
