Hardware, accents, beads, detailing… Call it what you want, but there is one consensus among shoe-nistas*: this season’s shoes are all about the details.
Easing into the trend with $29 flats from Charlotte Russe. the stud and stone embellishments down the center strap terminate at the split toe strap. I love the green color on these.
Aldo has a great pair of contrasting flats for $60. The blue is a perfect compliment to the rich leather color of the sandals. I could totally see myself walking on Ohio St Beach in these.
I hate wedges, but I try to be fair.The tiny bead detailing makes these not too terrible. $49.99 from Spring Shoes.
Wedges just are not my thing, so I’d rather have these similar heels from Charles by Charles David. $144.95 isn’t too expensive for well-made shoes like these. Beads and baubles dress up this hot heel, making it a great day-to-evening summer shoe.
Like the look of the last one, but want something lighter? Try these heels from Bakers. The cork platform and the white upper look like something straight out of Miami. for $89.95, I could rock these shoes all summer long.
I am really loving the light-colored upper on those Bakers heels, but sometimes I don’t want to spend a bunch of money on a trendy shoe, which is why I love this look from GoJane.com. Just $31.30, the extensive beading takes these simple summer sandals to an entirely new level.
If you liked the above shoes but want them in a darker color, GoJane also has a similar pair in a brown color for $31.30.
Last but most certainly not least, Miu Miu!! In case I ever had $755 to spare, I’d pick up these Miu Miu heels. I’ve been somewhat obsessed with them since the first time I saw them at Bergdorf Gooman. I am in love with the green/brown contrast and I like h0w the circular stones look kind of nautical. I could ask for them for my birthday, only 355 days away!
*Everyone else seemsto get their own “nista” term, “fashionista,” “recessionaista,” so now it’s my turn to name my term(s) which is “Shoenista”
