New Season Shoes and how to style them:
As the weather changes, so to must our wardrobes! And yes, we know it is technically still Spring, but it FEELS like Summer! Get ahead of the heat this year by investing now in the right style of footwear. From effortlessly cool slides to chic, artisanal espadrilles, this fashion blog is your go-to guide on the best shoes for this Summer, no matter the activity!
There's nothing nicer than having friends over for a BBQ on a hot summer's night. The grilling part is easy, but finding a shoe that is at once cool, casual and comfy is where it gets tricky! You need a style that will look great with jeans and a tee (or if you're feeling fancy, a relaxed maxi!) and one that you can stand in all night long! Opt for this tan leather espadrille by Estilo Emporio. It features a closed in toe, medium platform heel and secure ankle straps. View the Shoe
PICNIC IN THE PARK:
Whenever I think picnic, I think flexibility. That may sound a little bit odd, but hear me out... Firstly, there is the matter of sitting on the ground, cross legged! Then there are the games - french cricket and boulé - that require a certain freedom of movement. You need a pair of shoes that is as high performing as you are and as stylish as that gorgeous hat you're finally wearing! New in and handmade in Italy, the sandal you need features an edgy, chunky sole and a contoured footbed. The vaqueta leather straps will age beautifully over time, getting a rich patina...which means that you don't have to be precious with them! View the Shoe
DAY AT THE BEACH:
The best thing about living in QLD are all the glorious beaches just a short drive away! If you're planning a few trips away this Summer, this is the shoe to pack. It's one that looks right at home walking down the esplanade and super chic with that white linen outfit for the evening. It features a luxe, padded leather sole and fashionable tortoiseshell buckle too. View the Shoe
THE LONG LUNCH:
The ideal shoe to wear to a summer lunch (think of all those Christmas events coming up!) gives you a bit of height, is a neutral tone and nails that 'chic but effortless' brief that is so hard to come by. Choose a style that is modern, versatile and sophisticated. This mule features expertly woven jute that forms intp a platform mule. Platforms are a great choice as they give you a flattering amount of height whilst still feeling amazing to wear. The square toe and slightly raised heel lends to a modern, feminine silhouette.

FRIDAY NIGHT DRINKS:
Time to have some fun! Not just to be relegated to Friday night drinks alone, this designer mule features a striking leopard print design and frayed detailing. Combining these statement details with an otherwise classic open toe mule results in a fabulous heel that you can wear with jeans, linen pants or a floaty maxi dress! In our opinion, animal print is a neutral, so you can style this shoe to any evening event in Summer with ease. View the Shoe
