The Top 5 Shoes to Invest in for Spring/Summer

2 Mar

There are many things in life you can skimp money on; mascara, t-shirts, even jeans. But one of my fashion rules that I stick by 98% of the time is to splurge on shoes.

Think about it: cheap shoes make your feet hurt which in turn make you cranky, give you blisters and can make your overall outfit look cheap. And who wants that? Here are my ultimate favorite shoes for spring/summer and why they will take you beyond the seasons:

1) Chloe Raffia Ballet Flats

Although I love a classic ballerina flat, this is an amazing twist on the wardrobe staple. First of all they are raffia, which basically coaxes you to book a flight to a warm destination (I’m thinking Italy when I look at these but let your imagination do the talking). But most importantly they are pink, tan and cream which resembles, you guessed it….Neapolitan ice cream! Anything that looks like ice cream is worth investing in. Now they are $600 dollars but if you wear them on every single vacation, they pay for themselves.

2) Missoni Flat Espadrilles

Nothing says “jetsetter” like Missoni. And of course, espadrilles are a summer wardrobe necessity. If you always wanted a piece from Missoni but your budget never allowed it, you might want to consider these. The craftmanship is incredible.

3) Yves Saint Laurent Leather and Stingray Sandals

I know these are super-expensive but I couldn’t resist including them. They are just so gorgeous. I absolutely love stingray. Not only is it unpredictable but it adds texture. Ans don’t even get me started on the crispness of white. Overall, my fantasy shoe for this summer.

4) Sam Edelman Gigi T-Strap Sandal

My favorite shoe for summer is a simple metallic t-strap. Metallic, whether gold, silver, rosegold or bronze will go with everything from shorts to a summer dress. I love these because they are only $65 and look just as pretty as K.Jacques.
