One of the reasons I hate summer clothing and warm-weather dressing is because I do not wear sandals. My feet are super-messed up from wearing heels for years and during most of the year in general. As such, I’m not keen on barely-there strappy sandals and flipflops.
Warmer months therefore present a big footwear challenge for me. I want something lighter and breathable, but I don’t want my toes or heels on display. Plus, I at least I want to try and wear seasonal shoes.
An additional fashion challenge this year is that I will be going to Italy! I definitely want some cuter shoes if I’m going to be near Milan, one of the fashion capitals of the world.
What’s a gal to do? Fortunately I have found some good cheats over the years.
Keds are def a fave of mine! I have one white pair that I wear to death, then when there are literally holes in the soles, I throw them out and start over again. I’m not precious about my Keds, either. I admit, I kinda prefer to let them get a little dirty–shows I’m active. They’re light and breathable and go with everything.
Aldo thankfully has a lot of more airy, summery shoes. The brogues above literally have mesh on the side which screams breathable and cool and I get to wear my favourite style of shoe when the sun is shining. I love the detail of the beige flats above as well, definitely gives it kind of a sandal-vibe with those straps.
