It’s this seasons most coveted shoe, pom pom sandals are everything! I’ve been hunting down a pair for my vacation next week, yay! New Caledonia, Fiji and Vanuatu, here I come in my pom pom sandals…

After searching high and low for the perfect pair, I’ve discovered there’s a fine line between cute and crazy… so today I’m sharing the best of the best. As a style seen on countless celebs, top bloggers and fashion’s It Girls around the world, pom pom sandals are a must-have. You’ve been warned though, you’ll constantly get asked “Where are your amazing sandals from?”

The original and the best are without a doubt the Penny Lane Pom Pom Sandals by Elina Linardaki. You should check out her Etsy store here, ooooh my gosh – she has the most incredible collection of summer sandals, I literally want them aaall!

Gladiator Sandals

Gladiator sandals are major this season! They’re perfect to wear with shorts, skirts, dresses and even your fave skinny jeans (choose white, it’s stunning for spring).

This week I’m rounding up the very best and this pair from Gentle Souls are divine (and almost sold out). They are sublimely comfy too. I also adore these Michael Kors Sofia Gladiators, tall lace up sandals will instantly give your outfit the ‘it girl’ factor.

Last, but definitely not least, these Michael Kors Jocelyn Gladiators are a classic summer style staple. The tan color matches everything (seriously, I mean everything) and looks incredible with whites and brights. I love tan sandals because they make any outfit look effortlessly stylish (and not like you’re trying too hard).

Sam Edelman Azela Tassel Lace Up Sandals

Lace up sandals are everything right now and I absolutely adore these Sam Edelman Azela Tassel Heels. How beautiful is this soft pink color? I also adore the nude suede shade, they’re the perfect wear-with-anything pair of shoes for spring.

When I was at New York Fashion Week, tassels were a huge trend and we all know lace up shoes are here to stay. These beauties have it all!

Style them with a simple white tee and distressed jeans for a gorgeous mix of tough and pretty. They key to creating an effortless look is including high and low elements, it also allows you to easily take an outfit from day to night.

They’re also fab with spring dresses, skirts and shorts. I personally love the pink color, rose and blush shades are major this season and these heels are a fun way to easily work that trend into your existing wardrobe.

Do you guys own a pair (or two) of lace up heels? I have a few, but live in my nude color ones – it’s so easy because they just match with everything. I wore them to catch up with a friend on the weekend and we were talking about how much easier it is walking around in lace up heels, they’re comfy and just feel so secure on. Have you found this too?

This Seasons Best Wedge Sandals

Wedge sandals are definitely a style staple for spring and summer. Whether you’re off to brunch, running errands or away on vacay, they give a relaxed stylish vibe to almost any outfit.

I find sometimes heels can make an outfit seem over-done. However with wedge sandals, you still get all the leg slimming benefits of heels, but it seems so effortless. Oh and we all know how comfy they are to walk in! When I know there’s a day of walking ahead (and sneakers just won’t cut it), wedges are a brilliant option.

What do you think of wedges, are you a fan? Do you own a pair? If you have a favorite brand, I’d love to hear about them – I am always looking to add to my shoe collection, especially when they’re comfy and cute!

Today I’m sharing a few of my absolute favorites – you’ll notice they are all neutral colors, which means you can wear them with anything. I adore metallics and tan hues for spring and summer, they don’t weigh down an outfit and will never go out of style…

Steve Madden Drexel Gladiator Sandals

I have been hunting down the perfect pair of lace up sandals recently and found three pairs I absolutely adore! These Steve Madden Drexel Gladiator Sandals lead the pack. There’s something so effortlessly cool about lace up sandals and gladiator sandals. Whether they’re heels or flats, this style is a must-have for spring.

Neutral tones are definitely my go-to, they match anything and everything, plus they look stunning with all the whites, denims and colors of spring and summer.

Shoe of the Week – Sam Edelman Dayna Pumps

How fabulous are these Sam Edelman Dayna Pumps! I often just go browsing online (window shopping if you will) and lately I’ve been checking out shoes in a major way. Spring shoes are always gorgeous, but they’re already running out the door… lace up shoes are the hottest trend this season and selling out fast!

You may remember a few weeks ago I shared these Steve Madden Eleanorr lace up ballet flats. I couldn’t believe within a day they had completely sold out of the pink and barely had any sizes left in other colors. They only just got more back in stock, but they’re almost sold out again!

I have a feeling these Sam Edelman Dayna Pumps will encounter a similar fate, particularly the fuchsia color (below). I snapped up a pair for myself and they are truly gorgeous in real life!

What I love about heels like this is how they up the ante on any outfit. They are the perfect piece to create that coveted mix of feminine and tough… think distressed jeans, a classic white tee and these beauties! Or wear them with your favorite dresses and skirts, all spring and summer long.

We know soft blush pinks are really popular this season, but one color that will never go out of style is a bright fuchsia pink. There’s just something about it that says “I’m perfectly polished and elegant, but utterly in control”. If the essence of a “girl boss” was wrapped up in a pair of shoes, I think she’d be these…

Shoe of the Week – Gold Glitter Heels

My sister recently got engaged and and I’ve been planning our bridesmaid outfits, it’s been so much fun! For as long as I can remember, Georgia (my sister) and I have been obsessed with metallic shoes, particularly glitter heels – they truly match everything and are so fun to wear. If you’ve never owned a pair, trust us you need to – they’re ahhmazing. So of course, we’ve been searching high and low for the perrrfect pair of pumps. This week, we struck gold. Literally.

The most coveted of all the metallics are definitely gold glitter heels (these gold heels are on sale under $50 and ship internationally). There’s something really fun about wearing them, plus you’re guaranteed to have every woman say, “oooh where are your shoes from?!”.

Gold exudes such a beautiful warmth and is divine for spring. The reason metallic shoes make such an incredible choice is their ability to make a statement without being heavy. They aren’t too dark and they aren’t too light, so they’ll match with anything.

The key to styling these shoes is to keep the rest of your outfit clean, crisp and minimal. It’s about balancing something super feminine and fun, with structured and sophisticated elements.

Opting for a point toe style gives a polished and chic vibe to balance this whimsical, playful style. I think every girl needs a fab pair of gold glitter heels in her life! But if you want to tone things down a tad, choose a classic metallic style without glitter and it will be perfect for any occasion.

Here are a few favorites below… I’d love to know if you’re a fan of metallic shoes too? What do you think of these gold glitter heels? Oh and please leave a comment to answer the age old question – gold or silver?

Shoe of the Week – Lace Up Sandals

How cute are these Jessica Simpson Basanti Lace Up Sandals! I’ve been delighted with all the gorgeous new shoes for spring. The beautiful Eleanorr lace up ballet flats I shared in last Wednesday’s Shoe of the Week basically sold out within a day, so I’m really happy I snapped up a pair when I did

I feel these lace up sandals may evoke a similar frenzy. If there was ever a shoe that oh so elegantly screamed sunshine, effortless luxe, warm days and fun nights, it’s this pair…

They boast all the hottest trends too… lace up, fringe, tassels, neutral tones and vibrant aztec style prints.

My personal favorite is the honey brown tan color… I absolutely adore this simple shade, it’s classic and so stylish. Oh and it looks incredible with the spring / summer staples of white and denim.

Want an amazing outfit in an instant? Style these tan heels with a relaxed white shirt and distressed jeans. That’s it! Complete the look with loosely curled hair and a few thin gold rings. Hello, gorgeous!

This style also comes in the cobalt blue and black colors below. It’s amazing how they are the same design, but have such a different vibe.
