Spring style

Today I’m happy to share a very helpful & informative sponsor post covering the latest shoe trends to chic spring/summer styling tips.  All the fabulous shoes featured in this article are from Daniel Footwear where you can find an extensive collection of designer shoes and more.  The rest of the accessories & apparel featured below could be found by simply clinking these links  – shirt, pants, bangles, coral tint for lips & cheeks.

Now is the time to break out the sunglasses and dig the summer clothes out of the wardrobe.  Women’s shoes can be a mine field; what exactly should we be wearing this season?


Well, one trend which every woman can pull off with ease is the jewel clothes we have seen all over the fashion press.  A brightly coloured pair of wedges or heels will add an interesting twist to any outfit.  The bright colours we see on the high street have of course been inspired by the high end designers.  Jil Sander brought back jewel colours in a big way with her colour blocked collection.  Red, blue and purple are a great colour combination if you are stuck on where to start.

Prada’s Perforated Slingback Wedges look amazing worn with denim jeans as Sienna Miller rocks them herself.  These perfect warm-weather wedge sandals are now mostly sold out.

Here are three similar pairs you can indulge in for much less!  Perforated wedges let your feet breathe while adding a fresh look that is perfect for spring and summer.  Wedges are among my favorite styles offering both a chic look and comfy steps.
