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: Tory Burch Satin Smoking Slippers

I love all the holiday-esque fabrics and colors that the designers are offering this time of year.

Tory Burch has a rather extensive collection of smoking slippers this season and I’m in love with these Tory Burch Mayada satin slippers. I love the rich emerald color and bedazzled-ness of them – not to mention they’d go with my entire wardrobe. (Black pants, black sweaters, black skirts and black dresses!)

These would be absolutely lovely on a festive neighborhood walk, at a holiday party or for Christmas dinner. And if green isn’t your thing – try out the most royal looking slippers you’ve ever seen in purple!

Daily Covet: Leather Jacket with Peplum

I’m a fan of leather jackets, and always have been.

I think there has been maybe one jacket that I actually got rid of.  The rest of my jackets hang on a rack in my basement or in my coat closet until they are needed.

When I found this Imogene leather jacket from Tory Burch, I immediately fell in love.

The color is unique, the peplum is so right now, and I love the collarless style too.

Oh, and it matches an absolutely delish leather pencil skirt too.  YUM!

Daily Covet: Give Me the Boot(s)!

It’s that time of year again.  The time of year when it’s still 5000 degrees out, and I start making my list for fall.

I do it every year.  And every year, the things I buy sit in my closet for months until it actually gets cool enough to wear something for fall.

Needless to say, I have started combing the virtual shoe department at Neimans, and although most of these are way out of this girl’s reach… I heart them anyway.

Take a look at some beautiful fall boot styles I would prefer not to live without…

Get Into the Stripes of Things

There is notshortage of stripes this spring.

You will find them on throw pillows, dresses, wedge sandals, iphone cases and pretty much anything else you can think of.  So because I love them, and because there are so many to be found, here is a little bundling of some stripes I tracked down.  (Complete shopping info via Polyvore.com too.)
