I felt like I needed to preface this post with an explanation. I didn’t think I was going to take another break from blogging, I felt like I was ready to get back to normal and then shelter in place continued and life got in the way, and then poof its summer. But there are so many summer trends I can’t wait to walk the streets of Chicago again in my favorite summer looks.
And the official start to summer trend alerts has to be shoes. I think the thing I look forward to most when the seasons get warmer is changing over my closet, I’m somewhat of a dork and I love to switch the order of my clothes to make my flowing tops and maxi skirts available to grab on a whim. Along with my clothes, I also switch out my shoes. moving boots to the back of the closet to make room for sandals. I have been wearing the most beautiful and comfortable summer heels for years, tattered and scuffed I have scowered brick and mortar, and the reaches of the internet to find the perfect replacements to no avail. But this season has given me some hope for the future of my sandal collection.
Lately, I’ve seen so many strappy sandal styles crop up I’ve been loving the ease of a slide on and what’s been most appealing is the moderate heel sizes. Being a city gal I walk a lot especially in my heels and I find myself looking to more functional shoes to make sure I’m comfortable all day.
