If I could only shop for one thing for the rest of my life, it would most probably be for shoes. Well, as long as I had a good wardrobe to choose from. I always believe that the most simplest of outfits can be made into a whole new look with different styles of shoes. If you have a neutral outfit on and jazz it up with a pair of bright or patterned shoes, you’ve got yourself a jazzy outfit. As the old saying goes, you can tell a lot about a person by their shoes… that’s right, right?
Anyway, let me tell you why I’m really here.
Growing up as a girl who wasn’t really into many shoes, I am now making up for that loss of touch by shopping for shoes over any other item of clothing. When I go into a shop or go online to look for some new bits, 99.9% of the time you’ll find me heading for that shoe section first.
I’m not fussy with styles as I like trainers, flat, heels, boots and all of that, but I am particular with what shoes go with what outfit. I typically style my outfits around what shoes or bag I want to wear for that particular day, which I think says a lot about how much I care for accessories over clothing. What’s also great about shoes if that if you buy a good pair, one quite neutral but fun, they can go with so many outfits. So you get the best of both worlds, right?
That being said, I’ve rounded up a whole lot of goodness with a selection of shoes from Simply Be. Ones that I’ve discovered that are perfect for summer whether you’re after some new shoes for a summer party, holidays or just to treat yourself (the latter is my fave excuse). So, if you’re a shoe fiend like me, you’re going to love this roundup of shoe heaven. P.s. there is a lot of good picks here so don’t blame me if you make an impulse buy or two (I’m right there with you).
I’m a high heel girl through and through. But more recently I’ve rekindled my love for the kitten heel as well as the high shoes. I think kitten heels are great for the summer heat if you want to look a little fancy but still want to be comfortable. The kitten heel also suits so many styles from cropped trousers to mid skirts and mini dresses. I save those higher heels for the summer parties and dinners, because in this heat I’m all about the low but cute heels.
This summer I’ve tried to find more and more flat shoes that are my type. Once upon a time I lived in flats and you wouldn’t see me in nothing but. Now, with age and a new love for shoes, I do steer towards heels a lot more. That being said, I’ve fallen in love with so many flat shoes (especially mules and pointed toe ones) because they are indeed a lot easier and I really did need to invest in some because lets be honest, who can live in heels? Not me. Well, I would if I could but that’s not the point here. Let’s get onto the cute flats I’ve fallen head over
heels flats for.
There you have it, my summer shoe wishlist. 14 gorgeous pairs (all which I want but simply can’t have them all) that suit all summer activities. Whether you’re heading to a party, to the beach or popping down the shops, there’s something for all occasions here.
Which summer shoe is your favourite?
