There’s nothing I love more in the summer time than cute, comfortable and breathable footwear. We have been having what seems like the LONGEST winter Calgary has seen in a while, and it has me dreaming of strappy sandals, sneakers and open toed booties. I’m a sucker for anything with a heel lately, even though I’m less than graceful while wearing them; that being said, when you work in a mechanical shop full of men over 6 feet, you tend to start liking heels more and more. Check out my favourite picks for a little bit of height, and a whole lot of cute this spring and summer! Click the pictures below to be redirected for purchase.
My first favourite for spring is a strappy sandal with a chunky heel. I bought this Steve Madden pair last summer and I absolutely LOVE them. They are effortlessly cute and comfortable enough to wear going for long walks to the coffee shop, around the mall on a shopping sesh, or sight seeing on vacation.
My newest love is one that I never thought I would like let alone wear, but girls I swear if you pair them with the right outfit and attitude, they’ll change your sneaker game for life. I’m talking about the heeled sneaker! I love wearing these with a pair of Freddy jeans or a cute baggy jogger pant. They’e comfortable to walk in, and they look super cute, too.
I will forever and always rock a heeled, open toe bootie in the summer. I pair these with anything from a cute dress to a pair of distressed denim jeans. My favourite pair happens to come with a stiletto heel, so if I’m being honest they’re not the most comfortable for long walks, but comfortable enough that they work well for a night out to a fun club or pub, or an easy going morning out for brunch.
A total classic and a totally easy choice for any outfit, is the pointed toe heel. These don’t have to be reserved for a fancy outing, they can be worn with a cute mini skirt, distressed capis or really anything you want to dress up a little bit. These, like the stiletto booties aren’t necessarily comfortable enough to wear all day, but are 100% doable for a club night or breaky with the girls. I’m opting for colours in two of this seasons hottest shades- yellow and pink.
Let me know what you guys think, and if you have other ideas I would love to hear them!
