5 SHOES YOU NEED THIS SUMMER / 5 ZAPATOS QUE NECESITAS ESTE VERANO

CLICK ON ITEM TO SHOP – PINCHEN EN EL PRODUCTO PARA COMPRAR

Happy Wednesday, my darlings! Summer is almost here and it is time to start getting ready to flaunt those feet! Ha! Does anybody do that! Anyway, today’s post is dedicated to the hottest shoes out there this upcoming season (some of them already going strong during the spring). Out of all the shoe trends happening this summer, these 5 are my must-have:

  1. Stud sandals. This is one of my fave trends. It just add a bit of edge to the look and these particular pair can be worn so many different ways. For a super simple look, pair it with distressed jeans and a white tee. I think that these sandals would also look great with a denim dress.
  2. Pink pumps. I need to get these pair! Such a cool design (and it comes in tons of other colors!), great price and amazing reviews. Total winner. Use these pumps when you want to add a pop of color to a neutral outfit or to combine it with a bold and colorful outfit.
  3. Bow flats. I will confess: I am not a flats girl. But having Lennox has made me a believer. Actually, I think my pregnancy did. Because I am such a shoe lover, any flat that is this original is a flat I love and want. I think the pair I am sharing is just perfect to dress up a bit a casual look without compromising comfort.
  4. Wedge espadrilles. This is not the first time I feature these wedges on the blog, and I hope that you see why. They look comfy, trendy and so versatile. Even better, the one shared is an alternative to a much more expensive version that is pretty much identical. Time to save some $$, my darlings!
  5. Mid-block heels. This is a very retro look and I find the pair I found perfect combined with a super girly dress. Since that is not really my vibe, I would definitely style those with distressed jeans and a cool structured top.

Thanks for stopping by!

¡Feliz miércoles, mis amores! El verano está casi aquí y es hora de empezar a prepararse para hacer alarde de esos pies! ¡Haha! ¿Alguien hace eso? De cualquier modo, el post de hoy está dedicado a los zapatos más en tendencia en esta próxima temporada (algunos de ellos ya lo han sido durante la primavera). De todas las tendencias de zapatos que habrá este verano, estos 5 son mis esencialesr:

  1. Sandalias de tachuelas. Esta es una de mis tendencias favoritas. En seguida añaden un toque más atrevido a nuestro look y este par en particular se puede usar de muchas maneras diferentes. Para un look súper simple, utilizenlas con pantalones vaqueros envejecidos y una camiseta blanca. Creo que estas sandalias también se ven muy bien con un vestido de mezclilla (vaquero).
    2. 
    Zapatos de tacón rosas. Necesito conseguir este par! Diseño fresco (y viene en toneladas de otros colores!), gran precio y comentarios increíbles de sus compradores. Ganador total. Utilice estos zapatos cuando deseen agregar un toque de color a un traje neutral o combinenlos con un atuendo atrevido y colorido.
    3. Zapatos planos con lazo. Confieso: no soy una chica de llevar zapatos planos. Pero tener a Lennox me ha hecho creyente en este tipo de zapatos. En realidad, creo que mi embarazo lo hizo. Como buena amante de los zapatos, cualquier zapato plano que sea original es un zapato que amo y quiero. Creo que el par que estoy compartiendo es perfecto para vestir un poco un look casual sin comprometer la comodidad.
    4. 
    Alpargatas de cuña. Esta no es la primera vez que les muestro estas cuñas en el blog, y espero que vean por qué. Se ven cómodas, a la moda y super versatiles. Aun mejor, las que les comparto son una alternativa a una versión mucho más cara que es prácticamente idéntica. ¡A ahorrar algunos $$, mis amores!
  2. Tacones mediados de bloque. Este es un look muy retro y el par que encontré  me parece perfecto combinado con un vestido super femenino. Dado que este no es realmente mi estilo, yo definitivamente los combinaria con pantalones vaqueros envejecidos y un top bien estructurado.

¡Gracias por pasar!

Besitos,

Sandy

SAILOR SHORTS WITH BANANA REPUBLIC

Banana 2

Banana 1

Hello, my darlings! I am almost sure that you’ll love this post, because these shorts are so dreamy! I love that they are high waisted – which makes them very comfy – and that the fabric is thick enough to hold anything that need to be held, yet light enough not to be to warm. I will be wearing them constantly this summer! I paired my shorts with this basic tank that it is a must! You’ll get so much use from one of those, that you should probably get several 🙂 I recommend to size down if you like your tanks to be fitted, and I am wearing a size XS. Lastly, used cognac accessories because they go with absolutely everything. Both items are from other season, but I also love these sandals and this bag.

10 MUST-HAVE SHOES EVERY WOMAN NEEDS THIS SEASON

CLICK ON ITEM TO SHOP

One of the biggest challenges I face when styling my clients with pieces that they already have is finding out that they do not have the basics. So, quiet often, we find ourselves running around trying to find pieces that are missing to put the look together. In order to prevent this from keep happening, I created a guide for my clients of basic shoes for the spring/summer season that go with everything. Versatility is a must when it comes to shopping and not breaking the bank. To have ALL you need to be able to put a look together beautifully, you need a pair of pumps and sandals in BLACK, NUDE, RED, SILVER and GOLD.

Needless to say, a nice pair of black pumps is absolutely necessary and you’ll use it very much. Buy a nice pair, like the one above. Similarly, a pair of black strap sandals is super versatile and can be used to dress up or to give a little edge to a more casual look including distressed jeans or shorts.

Metallic shoes are a basic in my book because, often times, they can be used as a neutral and also add enough of a color that can also be used to complement multiple colors. I am in love with the gold pumps, and they are only $30!! I also love the detail on the gold sandals. These are a little pricier than what I normally recommend ($60) but they can be worn so often and they are very nicely made, so they are worth the little investment. The silver pumps are so fabulous and only $15!!! Need I say more? My favorite color to mix silver shoes with is navy and royal blue. Try it if you have not yet! The silver strap sandal is only $30 and it is another super versatile shoe. Dress it up or down and you will definitely stand out thanks to the very cute design.

Let’s talk about nude shoes. I am always SHOCKED to go into a closet and not find a good pair of nude pumps. If you don’t own a pair, you need to change that ASAP! These is the color that will save you every-single-time! Because of that, I also chose a pair that it’s not super cheap (they are only $44, though!), because you will wear them non-stop once you start playing with them. I own so many shoes from this brand, so buy without hesitation. They are wonderful!

I want to close with red because 1. they are super trendy right now and, 2. they make any outfit look immediately fabulous. I love wearing red pumps with skinny jeans and the pair I found you may need to find its way to my closet very very soon! The red sandals I included are not so basic, but I decided that they needed to make the list because they are all the rage right now and only $30!!

I hope that you found many wonderful ideas to up your shoe game. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Weekend!

xoxo
