Click here for the first post in my Summer Fashion Picks series – dresses.
Ah, shoes! They usually rank high on the addiction list when it comes to women and fashion.
Because I’m 5’8″ I’ve had a love/hate relationship with shoes. As in, I love looking at ’em and love a lot of styles, but so often they just make them so darn high I know I would end up feeling like a giraffe wearing them!
Either way, I still love window shopping for shoes and do get daring and buy a pair of high heels from time to time. Plus, I know there’s a lot of lovely petite readers who enjoy their heels so today I have a mix of flats and heels that are totally summer appropriate and completely adorable to get us all in the mood for summer!
I love the mixed colours on these wedges from Old Navy:
Women’s Mixed-Strap Color-Block Wedges, $34.94, Old Navy
And these faux snakeskin wedges are made so much better by the buckles! Such a cute addition 🙂

These flats are SO adorable – part chic/officey and part casual thanks to the espadrille. Just love ’em.
Shoes, $14.95, H&M
I am ALL about the boat shoe this summer. My feet are size 8.5 and quite long, so Tom’s always looked kinda ridiculous on me due to the length of the top of the shoes. Boat shoes tend to have a shorter top and that doesn’t make my feet look so big or ridiculous (is this just me?? anyway…). Therefore, I LOVE this pair from ALDO:
Shuart, $50, ALDO
I’m also all about this simple yet elegant sandal (it comes in turquoise, black and ‘cognac’ [brown] too – but the mustard was calling to me for some reason!):
Zyppora, $50, ALDO
Here’s a great example of what I was talking about earlier, with shoes I look at and admire but would never wear because they’d make me too tall:
Yeah. Exactly. But I really do love the colorblock idea!

Love how glitzy Jessica Simpson made this sandal – it could totally be worn on a night out, despite being a flat:

If you’re a ballet flat lover (they’re great for work!), then go seasonal by incorporating some brights into your wardrobe! These Jessica Simpson ballet flats are perfect for doing just that:
