I cannot wait for the summer to begin. Even though we are still in early spring, I am counting down the days until I can pack away my winter woollies and bring out my sandals and dresses. I have started to look for shoes that will be great for summer time.
I am in love with the loafer pumps. These shoes are so versatile, and come in so many different colors and designs. Perfect for dresses, shorts, skirts, peg-leg trouser, you name it; these shoes will look gorgeous with anything. Marc Jacobs, Charles Philip, Alexander McQueen, Paul Smith, Sam Edelman all gave their versions of this classic men’s shoe.
Next up is the summer essential, the sandal. Sandals are the number one shoe for the summer. This summer, I’m looking for sandals with a thin t-bar strap and lots of bling on them. Burberry Prorsum, Jimmy Choo and Tory Burch designed some fantastic sandals. Burch created a sandal with a floral sole with a simple strap. Beautiful.

They look so effortless and chic. At the spring/summer fashion weeks, wedges and espadrilles were spotted in Ralph Lauren, Mulberry, Burberry Prorsum and many others. The Classic Espadrilles, with their trademark rope sole, were huge last summer, and will be another big hit this summer.

Writing this I’m getting even more excited for summer. These are the style of shoe I’ll be looking for this summer. Have you been inspired? What type of shoe will you be sporting this summer?
