Summertime brings with it so many new and exciting fashion choices. While we are forced to hide our fabulous outfits under heavy coats and weather-friendly rain/snow boots during the winter, during the summer we can proudly show our fashion sense off to the world as we walk down the streets. It’s a time for adorable cropped tops and tiny shorts, cute dresses and skirts of all sorts. It’s also a time for new shoes.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I love boots – knee-high boots, high-heeled booties, furry boots that are perfect for the cold – they’re all drool-worthy. But I REALLY love summer shoes. From flip-flops to gladiator sandals to wedges to open-toe pumps, the possibilities are endless. And the best part of it is, I don’t have to worry about stepping in a puddle of dirty slush or ice cold snow.
When I was bored the other night, I started browsing the Steve Madden website. Bad idea. I have a huge thing for floral prints this season, and I absolutely love the look on shoes. Here are several shoes that I absolutely need for the spring and summer season:
Steve Madden WILDD wedges, for $149.95
Too precious for words.
Steve Madden BEVV suede pumps in Royal Blue, for $89.95
Although suede isn’t normally considered a warm weather material, I can’t get over how much I love the color of these blue pumps. They’re so bright and fun that I can still see myself wearing them during the summer and kind of getting away with suede factor. Also, because they’re suede, they’re perfectly appropriate for fall and winter. They would just add a nice pop of color to any outfit.
Steve Madden Karmenaf platforms, for $129.95
I am so in love with these platform shoes. I love the print and the color and the fact that they will make me nice and tall.
Steve Madden Cynthea espadrilles, for $129.95
Is there a more perfect shoe for summer than espadrilles? I think not. These would go with almost anything, and the print adds an adorable component.
