Bright beaded pom pom sandals that lace up to the knees are so going to be the must-have item of the summer. They’re the perfect addition to a beach day look or to your favorite city sundress. Luckily, for all of you sun worshipers and aspiring California girls, there are pom pom sandals in every price range. These are two of my favorites.
Though it still doesn’t feel much like spring in NYC, the season is in full bloom in the store windows with florals, sundresses and bright colors. As much as I love my over the knee boots, I simply can’t wait to trade them in for a pastel pair of heels or some strappy sandals. Whether you’re in the market for a spring neutral or something a little bolder, here are a few of my favorites:
Until now, I’ve never been a huge Crocs fan. I’m all about casual chic comfort, but the classic Crocs just weren’t working for me. This summer, however, I became a believer! I love their latest designs of summer sandals and flats. These trendy new designs stay true to the Crocs original style using the same comfortably waterproof materials that keep feet happy. As I put together my summer 2013 wardrobe, I’m hung up on my new Crocs Huarache Mini Wedges in multicolor. I can’t wait to pair them with a red sundress, chic swimsuit, or my favorite white capris for a burst of color.
Summer 2012 is almost here and I couldn’t be more excited! As much as I love the warm weather, I love living in a land of four seasons because the change in weather always marks a new beginning. Plus, it’s always a blast to buy new pieces for your wardrobe and rediscover old seasonal styles that have been in hiding in the back of your closet for the past six months.
Here are some of my favorite summer picks for the 2012 season:
1. Kenneth Cole Reaction Adjustable Printed Brief Shorts Swimsuit: A far cry from the string bikini, this year’s swimsuits are reminiscent of the 60s and far more conservative. In a year where major stars have been seen wearing long sleeves on the red carpet, women are finding that they ironically feel sexier when they are a little more covered up.
2. Kenneth Cole Reaction Ruffled Skirted Swimsuit: I’ve always wanted a skirted swimsuit, but have yet to own one. I’m pretty obsessed with this one. Not only are the color and the ruffles adorable, it acts as both a swimsuit and beach coverup in one.
After this crazy winter full of snow and ice, New York desperately needs a touch of Miami. With the arrival of March, I could not be more excited to trade in my UGGs and leggings for a mini skirt and bright platform heels. However, as a fashionista with flat feet and a bad back, I have experienced the distain of high-end bouncers everywhere by showing up at trendy clubs in flats or flip flops. I always get in anyway, but I would really like to someday wear heels for a long period of time.
Thankfully, breakout shoe designer, Xiomara Lisette has finally found a solution to my never-ending fashion crisis. As the wife of a Miami Heat player, Xiomara Lisette, created her own line of shoes to give her height, comfort, and most of all hot Miami style. As a sizzling Latina, much of Xiomara’s inspiration comes from Latin culture and her world travels. Her line premiered in New York recently at the Empire Hotel during Fashion Week where women came in from the cold and took off their clunky winter boots to try on these brightly colored shoes. As the days get longer with the approach of summer I look forward to seeing Xiomara Lisette’s line of sexy shoes expand from South Beach to Sag Harbor.
