Summer shoe guide!

Well, hello gorgeous!

Like every woman on planet earth, I really love shoes! But heels can sometimes do a number on your feet. Which is exactly why I love summer, because there are so many comfortable options like wedges, flats and flip flops. If you want to update your shoe closet and get your hands on some of this year’s biggest style trends, check out this cool guide to 2012's hottest summer styles:

Flip Flops

Flip flops are the perfect summer shoe because they’re light and easy to wear, but that doesn’t
mean they have to be boring. You can find flip flops in metallic shades, encrusted with jewels or
adorned with flower accessories that will add interest to any outfit while still being subtle.

I love rocking flip flops with maxi dresses, summer skirts or shorts and dressing up legs with a funky


Gladiators are back with a vengeance and these strappy sandals are more popular than ever. This year you can pick up on the tribal, floral and neon trends by choosing some stand-out gladiator sandals in funky colours and patterns. Go for electric blue, metallic or patterned gladiators that will look great with summer skirts, shorts and maxi dresses.

Sneaker love!

Whether you prefer high tops or low tops, or you want to call them sneakers, "chucks" or baseball boots, they are big news this season. Rough up a pretty summer dress by teaming them with high tops, or tap into the 1950s trend with low rise boots and denim cut offs. To give a nod to the nautical trend ,choose red or navy boots or make a statement with a pair in tropical bright colors that will make your feet stand out from the crowd.

I need these in my life!


Wedge heels are ideal for summer because they’re easy to wear but still have a great lengthening
effect on your legs. There are so many different styles and designs to choose from that you really are
spoiled for choice. If you love the tribal trend then choose wedges adorned with beads or jewels and
team them with a tribal inspired playsuit.


The boyfriend look is still hot and a pair of brogues is the perfect accompaniment to any androgynous outfit. Team your brogues with a 1920s inspired drop waist dress or tailored shorts or pants.

Happy shopping!!
