We have gotten to the last part of my shoe collection, my summer shoes. Now, the shoes I tend to wear most in the summer are my Converse, and probably my Adidas this year as well, but a good pair (or two) of flats and some summery sandals cannot be missed, and every girl needs at least one pair of summer heels for those fancy evenings, in my opinion that is. And you can’t forget about flipflops. You just can’t.
So without further ado, let’s take a look at my current summer shoe collection.
A little warning beforehand, since this is all about summer shoes you will see a lot of my toes. So if that’s not your thing, I am so sorry.
Let’s start off with my one pair of heels. I used to be such a heels girl, but now, as you have seen over these past few weeks, I only own 2 pairs of heels: my Dune booties and these Van Dalen wedges. I got this pair in the Van Dalen sale a few years ago, and I fell in love with their neutral but still fun design. They are so comfortable because of the high platform and the wedge, and because of the colour they go with so much. They are casual but can also really dress up an outfit, like most heels, and I think I will get a lot of wear out of them again this summer.
Moving on to flats,a staple in any summer wardrobe. I love flats, and always need at least one pair. They are so simple to style, so easy to just throw on, and if you buy a good pair, they are so very comfortable. I have been in love with the Van Haren (Dutch shoe store) leather flats for years now. I used to have a baby pink pair, and now since a few years I have this plain black pair that I will wear until they are falling apart. These babies are so cheap and also very comfortable, and like I said, they pair with everything. If you are in The Netherlands, just try these flats on next time your in Van Haren, they are so worth it!
My second pair of ballet flats are a bit more fun, but let’s be real, leopard print is still neutral. So these babies from Primark (a few years ago) still go with almost everything. I like the big black bow on the front, it makes it a bit more interesting. These, again, are very comfortable, and I cannot wait to wear them when the weather is warm enough (although the weather here in Holland has already been absolutely amazing!). I do love me some leopard print every now and then, and I think shoes are a great way to incorporate it into your outfit.
Next up: sandals. Another staple. I have this black beaded pair from Ella Cruz that are elasticated on the back, which makes these so easy to slip on. They, again, go with everything (I sense a theme here), and the slightly raised sides make them very comfortable, even though there is not a whole lot keeping my feet in place.
These might be my oldest pair of shoes. I have seriously had them for years and years and years. I have bought other sandals and have gotten rid of them again, but I just can’t seem to pair with these ones, even though they have pretty much lost all their beads and are so very dirty. Maybe it’s the fact that they’re white, which makes me look really tan, or the fact that they are just so comfortable, but I will tell you this: I will not get rid of these until they are truly and utterly falling apart.
Last but not least it is time for a pair of shoes I think everyone needs. Whether you are young or old, male or female, you need a pair of flipflops. Just to slip on for a beach trip, to take with you on holiday, to quickly grab when you need to run out of the house. You just need a pair. I got these last summer, I can’t even remember where, but I just really liked the colour (makes me look tan, you know 😉 ) and I think these will see me though next summer as well.
So there you have it, the last part of my shoe collection. I hope you have enjoyed getting a peek inside my (shoe) closet and hearing a bit about each pair.
I have a few more shoes on my wishlist, and when I do buy them I will definitely share them on the blog, but for now I am pretty happy with what I got.
Now all I need is a place to store them..
Anyways, thanks so much for stopping by, hope to see you here more often 🙂
