Shoe Crushing!

I have a slight addiction to cute shoes. My daughter always laughs at how many shoes I have and she’s right I really don’t need any more shoes…seriously!  I’m still dedicated to my buy one give one promise that I made to myself several weeks ago so before I started looking at shoes that were on sale, I made a mental list of what I have and what shoes I want for fall.  Let’s start with my two biggest shoe crushes at the moment…

Animal Print Slides & Black Leather Espadrille Wedges


In the summer you are likely to see me wearing my favorite white tee and jeans or denim shorts a lot.  I love adding leopard print slides or a fun clutch to give this basic look a little something extra!  These Cross Strap Leopard Sandals are still available in a few sizes and have been a huge hit. I also found a few pair that are similar in case they are out of stock in your size: Leopard Print Gigi Y Sandals,  Tory Burch Natural Leopard Gemma Sandal,  and Leopard and Black Suede Halogen Corbin Slide (currently on $60 as part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale).

7 Fayna Calf Hair and Leather Foldover Clutch and Oak Platform Wedge Espadrilles

I was not looking for these little black Franco Sarto espadrille cuties when I ran across them on my last trip to Nordstrom shoe department while looking for boots!  Trying them on was a bad idea, because once I put them on I didn’t want to take them off!   I am so sad that I decided to wait for them to go on sale because I just checked and they are sold out online everywhere.  If there is a fairy shoe mother out there, please find and deliver these shoes to me! I linked a pair of Steve Madden Espadrilles that are similar and available in most sizes.

Grey Suede Booties

Vince Camuto Grey Suede Booties

Last year I really wanted a pair of grey booties but I couldn’t find a pair that I loved for a reasonable price.  I was so excited when I found these Vince Camuto Fileana Booties in the color Greystone Suede.  I have several pairs of Vince Camuto boots and they are well made and run true to size. These booties are just under $100 during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and are an investment that I know that I will be able to wear for several years to come.

Pink Sneakers

I’ve been on the lookout for a pair of pink tennis shoes…I know, so girly!  This pair of Caslon Camden Sneakers are just what I was looking for.  The mix of suede and leather give them a unique, dressy feel and they are so comfortable. They also come in black and grey.  If I wasn’t on a budget, I would probably buy all three colors….for the love! What can I say, shoes make me happy.
