Summer Lovin’ {The Shoe Files}

You don’t have to be a shoe addict or collect Manolo Blahnik’s to agree that shoes make or break an outfit. When I look at an outfit on someone, my eye almost instantly goes down to the shoe! I love, love, love shoes, but my shoe collection is actually quite modest. I choose my shoes more based on versatility so my closet isn’t necessarily overflowing with shoes.

BUT, I do love a good pair of shoes! I am currently swooning over the “summer bootie” and fringe detailed sandals.  The summer bootie is perfect to transition from summer to fall, especially when summer lasts 6 months! Where are my southern sisters?? Can I get an amen? And the fringe detailing that seems to be everywhere these days, from sandals to funky key chains, makes my heart go pitter patter.

I’ve handpicked a few of my faves and have linked where to purchase these beauties if they too make your heart skip a beat. Enjoy, darlings!

I’ll start with my favorite shoe from this round up, which is the Skye Fringe Sandal from Nordstrom. It is the perfect marriage of the summer bootie and the fringe factor. Hello, cuteness! And a major plus to Nordstrom shopping…free shipping and free returns. Hooray!


Next up in the line up is the Ferris Block Heel Sandal from Sole Society, another one of my fave online shoe retailers. The suede material makes it perfect for transitioning into cooler temps (whenever that may be!), so scoop this beauty up and prepare yourself for the compliments to come rolling in. For those edgier shoe lovers out there, I’m crushing on the Ferris in black. It looks like a completely different shoe in the “ink” color!


For those funky fashionistas out there, let’s talk FRINGE! Admittedly, this is a trend I’ve had to warm up to and I will only wear it in small doses–no Pocahontas fringed ponchos, please! That said, I’m loving these fringe detailing on sandals. It’s the perfect boho addition to your summer shoe collection.

With just three sizes left in this brightly colored fringed sandal, the Pandora sandal in sunflower is sure to fly off the shelves soon. If you’re looking for a dressier, more neutral option, look no further than the Delilah in taupe {also available in black and oh so spicy paprika}. Lastly, I’m loving the simplistic edge of the Wekka. It’s currently sold out but get on the wait list to scoop it up soon!
