Daily Covet: Summer shoes for all occasions

Hey bloggy friends!

School’s been out for us for weeks now, but Summer has yet to officially begin. So in anticipation of more sun and less rain, I’m looking for some fab chaussures to grace my feet. Here are a few of my favorite styles for every occasion:

I love the juxtaposition of the glitter and the butter soft, casual style of these flatforms from H&M’s premium shoe collection. Jeans, shorts, sundresses and more would be the perfect pairing for these sandals with a lift!

Or how about these sexy, little metallic numbers? I love all the straps that still leave your pedi in full view!

Got lots of sightseeing to do on your summer vacation? Make sure your sneakers are as comfy as possible. New Balance has made a major comeback in the past few years and the color combinations mean they’ll go with just about anything!

Want your sneaker to be a little less “sport” and a little more “sleek?” Check out these slip-ons from No. 21. The rubber platform sole means extra comfort, and the glitter-finished canvas upper means extra va-voom!

There’s nothing plain about these black, heeled sandals from Stuart Weitzman. The heel is high enough to make your legs look great, but low enough to dance the night away. The simple strap across the front elongates your leg while the ankle strap keeps them secure.

Need something with a little more color? There’s no better way to show off a summer tan than these pumpkin-colored sandals with the wide ankle strap. And they’ll take you right into fall too!

Let’s not forget, summer is high time for sand, surf or a crystal blue pool. These hot pink PVC sandals from Tory Burch (reminiscent of the “jelly” version you wore as a kid) are waterproof as well as totally adorable. And let’s face it… they’ll take your black bikini up a notch.

Can’t get to the beach this summer? Slip into Havaianas that won’t let you down. Wear these palm-tree printed flip flops on the pool deck to channel your inner surfer girl.

Daily Covet: Classic Vans in Checkboard

Vans were as common, if not more so, than underwear when I was growing up in Southern California.

Classic Vans were worn by skateboarders, BMX riders and surfers starting in the early 70’s.  And although, Vans have always been popular, they have had a resurgence the last few years as they have put out more styles and colors.  And as J.Crew picked up Vans for their Crewcuts line for kids, Vans are once again a household name all over the country.

Of course, I have always loved the look of vans, but now I am thinking practicality too.  My youngest son is a few weeks away from starting preschool.  In order to save myself and his teachers some time and angst, I’m thinking I want to order him these adorable checkerboard Vans in bright blue and orange.

As I mentioned in my blog several weeks ago, color is king.  And these Classic Vans slip-ons definitely boast some color.  What a cute addition to a little boys wardrobe, which doesn’t have the option of fun, frilly details like a girl’s would.

My hope is that he’ll love the independence of putting on and taking off his own shoes as needed.  I know I will!

Daily Covet: Nautical Stripes and Bold Jack Purcell Sneakers

Knit dresses with stripes and bold Jack Purcell sneakers are a great summer uniform.

You can look put together, fashion forward and a little classic all at the same time.  And what’s better, your feet won’t hurt after a long day of museum hopping, running errands or lunching with the ladies.

Add a straw bag or a nylon cross-body bag, and your look is complete!
