Summer 2015 Shoe Buys

I’ve actually put a semi-halt to makeup buying as of late because the more I stare at all the lipsticks, blushes, etc. that I have collected over the years, I realize I need to chill out a little. I just can’t justify buying anything new unless I run out of something at this point. Of course, since I’m not buying makeup I need to fill the void with something else. Shoes.

1. Steve Madden Donddi Sandals. I’ve been on a little bit of a minimalist kick lately and these sandals fit the bill. I’d been looking for a pair of sandals with a slightly wider strap because my feet are on the wider side. I’ve been wearing these non-stop since I got them and they are super comfy. It is a little annoying having to buckle in and out of them, but I still say it’s worth it.

2. H&M Sandals. These aren’t on the website anymore, but may still be in stores. They’re again very minimalist and easy to just throw on and go. I will say that the sizing for H&M shoes is weird. I wear a 7.5 typically and they only carry some half sizes and mine is not one of them. I ended up getting the 8 and they’re a little big, but not too bad. I’m pretty sure they were only around $12 so I really can’t complain.

3. Forever 21 Faux Leather Espadrilles. I was channeling my 90’s teen years hard here when I picked these platforms up. I’ve never bought a pair of shoes from Forever 21, but these are surprisingly comfortable. I wouldn’t wear them for long distances, especially since there’s no ankle strap and I’m fairly clumsy. I wanted to buy into the trend again, but not spend a ton because I don’t really wear anything other than flats. I will say that they do make my legs look super long, which is a plus when you’re 5’3″.

4. Topshop Lace-up Gladiator Sandals. This was a trend that took awhile for me to come around to, but the more I saw people wear them the more I wanted a pair. These were actually really affordable and I liked the snakeskin print. Obviously, because they’re so inexpensive the material is synthetic and I worried they’d rub my skin in a bad way. But, they’re surprisingly comfortable and look great with dresses, shorts, and jeans.

5. Topshop Lace-up Pointed Toe Flat. These are basically the Aquazurra flats with a much more affordable price tag. I haven’t had a chance to wear these out yet, but they fit well and also pair well with a variety of bottoms. I don’t have any shoes in a leopard print so I couldn’t resist these.

What shoes are you loving this summer?

    • Thanks! Haha I don’t know if it’s really a no-buy per se. I’m too scared to commit to a true one! I wanted some Sperry’s a couple of years ago, but never got them, I’ll have to check them out again!

  1. Haha you say you’re done buying for now, JUST wait until the Fall collections start popping up, lol! 😛
    But yes, shoes is a great way to fill the void! I really like those Steve Madden ones – but yeah, I’m lazy about having to do up buckles – I like those fake buckles where they’re elasticized lol.
    Oooh not really my style but those Topshop lace up pointed toe flats look super sexy yet COMFY.
    I’m boring, I wear nude flats and 2 pairs of wedge sandals: one black, one brown! 😀
