Summer’s Must-Have Shoe Trends

My mother has declared me a shoe girl, after my Granny. She says that my shoe collection triumphs her, but is equally matched with her mom. I am pretty sure that my love for shoes is never ending & when new trends emerge or old ones unfold I tend to want to own each & every shoe I come across, which is not exactly good for my bank account. 

As I mentioned on Friday, DSW is one of my favorite places to shop for shoes & they never dissapoint with keeping up with new trends or being overly expensive. A couple weeks ago, I went shopping with my mom & it was her first time in a DSW store, so you can say that my mom had a great time browsing. She was amazed at the shoes they had to offer & the sales that were going on. She ended up leaving with a cute pair of blue converse & there were plenty more that made her wish list.

Today I wanted to chat about some of the current shoes trends & share a little outfit inspiration along with some of my favorite shoes available at DSW right now. 

DSW SPRING TREND: The Jeweled Sandal

The jeweled sandal is a fun way to dress up your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans or classic maxi dress. They can literally go with everything & the Jessica Simpson Javon Flat Sandal is perfect.


I styled the classic white converse on Friday & like I said, this trend is by one of my current favorites. You can style this classic white sneaker with a bright red summer dress for date night or with a pair of denim shorts for a baseball game. This classic white converse sneaker is back in full force & if you haven't already picked yourself up a pair, you def. should!

DSW SPRING TREND: The Birkenstock

Birkenstocks ARE back & you may not be a huge fan of this trend, but I am. I have been wearing Birkenstocks since I was in High School & I am lucky that my mother made me keep them during that time when they were considered 'hideous'. I have both the clogs & Arizona sandal from way back when, but am hoping to add a fun white sandal to the mix. Are you a fan of the Birkenstock trend?

DSW SPRING TREND: The Fashion Sneaker

The fashion sneaker trend has been making a come-back for some time now & I am def a fan. These Steve Madden Leopard sneakers are super adorable & extremely comfortable. They are fun casual shoe that can be paired with a simple look & remember leopard is the new black! I hope to be able to add these to my current shoe collection before the summer's end. 


I am the girl that owns wayyyy too many wedges & believes that a wedge should be worn even to run errands (even if I don't abide by that rule 110%). I love a cute wedge - 1) they are easier to walk in & 2) they are way more comfortable then a stiletto or high heel. DSW always has THE best wedges. These Report Signature Elayna Wedge Sandal are super comfy & under $55.
