Happy Feet

Summer time means beach, bronzer, maxi dresses and sandals!!



No, the above picture is not my closet ( one day...yeah right!)

I actually realized this year, I had a pretty pathetic summer foot wear collection...I owned 1 pair of sandals that didn't even fit properly, so I decided an upgrade to my collection was needed


The shoes I have been LIVING in, courtesy of Sam Edelman and Zara


The top two are Sam Edelman Gigi's? I think most people will recognize these, as they are quite popular. I had never owned a sandal in such a style where all my foot is exposed but I have been wearing these to death! The padding is quite thick, unlike most where it is so thin, it can wear down in a few uses. I will note that the name on the bottom in gold "Sam Edelman" starts to wear away within a few uses, so that is a bit disappointing. .

But overall very comfortable and satisfied with my purchase.
Sam Edelman sandals are true to size but are narrow so if you have wide feet
( like me ) I would order half a size up so your pinky toes dosent hang!!

The bottom two sandals are from Zara.
The blue and brown ones are the ones where I mentioned that they don't fit properly. My feet are a bit too wide for them, and I wore them all last summer so the backing is very loose now and keeps slipping so I may have to poke an extra hole to tighten up the heel strap because I really do love the look of these.

Lastly are my new animal print sandals. These are new in Zara currently and while I was looking for the leopard version which I had posted about in my last post, they don't seem available yet, but these were.
They have quite a comfortable padding, and the animal print adds interest so this was an impulse buy, but I still quite like these.
(Still waiting for the leopard print version!)

While on the topic of tootsies, I picked out some of my favorite pedicure colors for summer

L to R: OPI Mod about you, Essie's Fiji, Essie's Bahama Mamma

Mod about You, and Fiji are shades I absolutely hate on my hands but for some reason but are true favorites in the summer for pedi's. They both seem to create the illusion of more tanned feet. Bahama Mamma actually is quite complimentary to just about every sandal I have tried it with, and works with all my outfits, so this was a surprise but a pleasant find!

Summer prep for shoes, check that off as DONE!

  1. Did the exposed style take long for you to get use to? I've been wanting to get sandals like those but it feels weird when I try first them on :X

  2. i have always thought these sandals would be uncomfortable but to be honest it felt pretty ok after the first 15 minutes where i just needed to adjust a few things!
    The front was not painful but i felt SOMETHING for about 15 minutes, then it just went away and fixed itself, and sometimes the back hurts but i then realize the hook part just needs to be adjusted so from this brand i can def rec these sandals! i think from maybe slighter cheaper brands, it may have a more pain wear time.

  3. I really like the animal print Zara sandals :) I love sooo many of Sam Edelman's designs but I can't afford to shell out the money right now -_- I only have three summer sandals right now (just acquired one pair last week) and I feel like I have no shoes to wear :( Bahama Mama looks really gorgeous!

  4. I need a shoe cabinet like this one, my shoes are kind of in a disarray state like the bottom right cube...I love butter London Teddy Girl on toes in the warm weather.

  7. AH, that is a dream shoe closet. I don't think I could pare down my shoes to fit in there. I have such a hard time parting with anything. I'm ALWAYS looking at the gigi shoes. One day I'll get a pair... I keep telling myself next summer though!

  8. lol I totally thought that was your shoe closet until I scrolled down. That's one SERIOUS closet! And I have the black patent Gigi's too. I don't wear them as much as I used to because, as you said, I think I just felt like my foot was a tiny bit too naked :P

  19. I love your sandals and before I read your review, I had never heard of Sam Edelman let alone the Gigi thongs! Cue me googling it and have finally bitten the bullet and ordered a pair in nude leopard print yesterday! :) Thanks so much for the recommendation! I also love the Zara sandals as I seem to have a thing for leopard prints this summer! Also loving your nail polishes and your OPI polish reminds me of the one I have from the Pirates of the Carribean collection, I should break that out and use it! :)
