If The Shoe Fits

If there is one thing that I am not, it’s a shoe girl. Not to say I don’t like shoes or buying them, well scratch that I don’t like buying them ONLY BECAUSE I feel that I would prefer to spend my money on clothes, makeup, or unnecessary Target things.

But I do like shoes. And if I had all the money in the world, I would probably buy myself more. Sure I’ll take some Stuart Weitzman boots or give me a pair of Christian Louboutin’s and Giuseppe Zanotti heels. NBD…

But in the meantime, I’m usually a ‘buy one new pair per season‘. Every Winter I always buy a pair of boots, Fall a pair of cute booties, Spring/Summer come the wedges, sandals, and flip flops. And I always have 1-2 heels that I alternate between.

Just recently though I bought my Spring/Summer shoes for this year. And can you believe it, I bought them online! I never ever buy shoes online, just because you never know and sending them back is always a disappointed process BUT I did it anyway. I nearly fell in love when I first laid eyes on them on the site and fell even more in love with them as I was finally able to try them on my feet.

So today I’m showing you my Spring/Summer shoe collection. Some new, new-ish, and some flat out old but still good. And I’ll let you know where they are all from!

PS- I really hate feet but some of these photos I took are of my feet wearing them (go figure lol) Sorry in advance.

1. Kate Spade Heeled Flip Flops

These are brand new. I’ve worn them twice, once on Easter and once this past Sunday to Marblehead.

I 90% of the time need some sort of heel on my shoes for me to walk around comfortably. I love that extra 1-2″ height boost so these were a must. I’m not the best picture taker- but that gold dangley piece in front are cute little spades. Don’t get me wrong I do own a flat pair of flip flops too for the beach 🙂

FROM: TJ MAXX size 8, fits to size. 

2. Studded Ankle Strapped Chunky Heels

This photo (below) was taken from the LULU’s site23

And of mine when they came in (theirs are obviously photographed way better than my iphone6s)2

These babies are one of my new online purchases. I am SO in love the gold studs against the black. They also have a strap that wraps around the ankle, which I adore shoes with that feature. I’m assuming these will be my new every day work shoes because they are that comfortable.

FROM: Lulu’s size 8, fits to size

3. BLACK ANKLE-TIE STRAPPED HEELS

The second new pair I order online. Can you tell where its from 😉 EXACT HERE Comfy heels are a thing because these are also so very comfortable. I swear any heels that have the ankle straps keep your feet and stance very sturdy. It makes walking around in them that much easier. They’re a lovely durable velvety texture with a zip up in the back and a cute bow-tie in the front.

FROM: Lulu’s size 8, fits to size. 

Okay now for my not so newer shoes but still fairly new.

4. WEDGES

8

I’m not going to lie the top weavy part doesn’t feel the greatest. But I will wear them when I know I won’t be walking around a ton; work is a good place or out for a lunch/dinner date. I just love the style of them and frankly they’re the only wedges I own. Super cute with cuffed jeans, leggings, or a summer dress!

FROM: MARSHALLS size 8, fits to size (I bought this 2-3 years back so I’m not sure if they’d have this style)

5. STUDDED FLATS

10

11

These are the only nude pair shoes I own. But again the gold studs and ankle straps I just can’t resist! The only thing about these is that with any flats your feet will sweat. And you can’t really get away with wearing those slip on slipper sock things. So the only time I actually wear them is when I wear nude tights. I will walk around the mall or the city in these and girls across the way will shout “OMG I love your Valentinos” to which I just reply with a “Thanks!!! ;)”

FROM: Wet Seal, size 8 they’re bigger than a usual 8 for me which is strange because with any flats I like to go the 1/2 size up. I also got these last year, not sure if they will have them this season.

6. GOLD PLATED SANDALS 12

13

These are hands down my favorite sandals I’ve ever owned. It’s so bittersweet how much I love them BECAUSE they don’t have a heel on them whatsoever. But I will live in these. Day trips, frolicking, adventures, they are coming with me!

From: TJ MAXX, size 8, fits to size. I bought these last summer, so again, not sure if you can find them there.

7. White Studded Ankle Strapped Heels 

14

15

These are my favorite shoes to look at and wear for the looks and complements I get them on them. If there’s one thing I like more then black and gold its surely white and gold! They just stand out and I love every minute that they’re on my feet. I tend to pair these with an all black outfit just so that these are the prominent feature of the whole ensemble. And to be honest, they’re pretty comfy. Not to say I’m going to go walk a marathon in them though.

FROM: Marshalls size 8, fits to size. Also bought one year ago so you know….

8. Red Sneaker Flats

I’ve showcased these a bunch of times20

But I also love these and tend to wear them often. They’re more my casual outing kind of shoe. If I know Andrew and I are going to walk and explore a lot I’ll throw these on. For example I wore them to explore DC, Martha’s Vineyard, Boston, etc.  If I’m feeling like I want to wear something more comfy and relaxing then these are my go to’s. I LOVE the red and how it just pops out at you but since they are red, I can only match it with so much. Luckily my closet is filled with black 🙂

FROM: Target size 8, fits to size. Bought these last year but they have them every year! I may have to buy a fresh pair soon.

And there you have it my Spring/Summer shoe collection. If you learned anything new about me I hope that it’s 1. my shoe size 😉 2. that I LOVE studs and 3. ankle straps for life.

xo, JJ

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE those striped flip flops!!! (It’s no secret that I kind of have an obsession with stripes…). 😉
    And I REALLY love those thin, red sneakers. I should get a pair of those this summer, especially now that I’m a mom. I need comfy shoes, BUT I don’t want to sacrifice cuteness either. 🙂

      Right I love the stripped flips!!! I bet if you went to a TJ Maxx or Marshall’s they’d still have them! I bought this early this month! And those red flat sneaks are one of my faves. You’ll totally be able to run after your little ones in them all while looking cute 🙂 xoxo

    Oooh those black ankle-tie strapped heels are TDF!

    My current wish list is a pair of nude-tone strappy sandals for the summer…

      Flat-sneakers (idk what they’re really called lol) but I love them too, I’d wear them more often it was a more neutral color, I think I need it in brown, black, and white haha and nude strappy for the summer sounds great….I bet if you looked on the Lulu site you’ll find some cute ones!!! xo

    Ohmygod you have so much pretty shoes!! I absolutely love those white studded ankle strapped heels, they are so pretty 😍 I am really jealous of the amount of heels and sandals that you have.. I honestly own only one pair of heels and I wear them only when I am going to a party where you have to dress up haha.. I honestly own only sneakers, I don’t even know how many pairs I have.. too much probably 😂

      Sneakers are a totaaaal must though! If I wore sneakers more often then my whole closet would be filled with them because they really are the most comfortable. I have like 2 pairs of Nikes’ that I alternate between and I will wear them as much as I can when I can. Sadly 9/10 times I’m at work and sneakers aren’t allowed 😦 But thank you ❤ I feel good because now I won't have to worry about spring/summer shoes for at least hopefully 1-2 summers after these are worn and torn. xo

    Okay so here must be where we differ as I love shoes!!!!! However I totally get what you mean about preferring to buy actual clothes, they’re kinda more practical I guess. And I’m definitely the same, with the seasons I always buy a new pair of shoes to suit that time of year even if I already have 100’s lol. And buying shoes online is so risky when it comes to getting the right size, especially when it comes to heels…happy that yours fitted well for you!! Fave shoes from your collection have to be the gold plates sandals, the Kate Spade flip flops and the Lulu tie straps, so cute and can be dressed up or down!! And I also love your red trainers!! Ps I too hate feet, there’s just something so not nice about them lol! But hey they do get us from A – B. Alsoooo I need those Guieseppe Zanotis!! SO beaut X

I plan on wearing them to an upcoming wedding this summer so we’ll see how comfortable they actually are when dancing ha xoxo

    These shoes are all so cute! I do see your love of studs coming through.
    I’m very short, so you think I’d want to wear heels, but I just don’t find them comfortable. Wedges on the other hand I love. They give me that little height boost, but I’m still comfortable. Most of my shoes are ankle boots. I love ankle boots, those or flats. I just always find them the comfiest 😀

      Ankle boots are one of my favorites to wear too. I personally love Fall/Winter shoes more because I’m such a boots/bootie fan!!! I must agree though walking in wedges is WAY easier than heels. I tend to gravitate towards thicker heels just for posture/walking reasons but sometimes I just cannot resist the thin heels. I probably wear those the least though and save them for a special occasion! xoxo

    Reading this was like reading my own thoughts. I’m not much of a shoe person either, unless it was a pair of Jimmy Choo’s etc. I buy shoes to wear out for each season. I love your collection! The stripe sandals especially!

      Ah I love this, great minds think alike 🙂 I feel like its so necessary to rebuy a new pair each season esp the Fall/Winter ones because I wear and tear those every year just from the weather. My boots especially…by mid winter my cute knee high boots were practically dunzo. But it’s a great excuse to get a new pair/new style 😉 xo

        My winter boots always look like they have been dragged around a farm for 5 years by the end of winter. I always invest in good ones and the same thing happens. But yes, definitely a great excuse! xx

    Ankle straps are the best! Also I have a pair of flats that I have such issues with because of sweat. I recently ordered a few pairs of those shoe liner socks that barely come up your feet at all (like what they have in shoe stores for trying them on) so I’m hoping those will solve the issue. Maybe those would work for you? Funny thing, I’m actually a huge shoe lover, but I never let myself buy them because I’m also a minimalist. It’s a struggle, lol.

      Oh yeah those nylon-y kinds? I might have to try those for my studded flats. With my red ones I can wear those slip on sock things because they cover a good portion of my foot. But I totally feel you…as gross as it is, foot sweat is a thing and I sometimes have to just throw out the shoes no matter how much I love them because they get ruined from being sweaty lol Let me know if the shoe liners work, maybe I’ll try it out too thanks xox

    I really like the black strapped heels though, they look gorgeous. And I do like how you’ve worn your red pair of sneakers. It adds a pop of color to your outfits. I need a pair like that of whatever color lol.

      I hateeee feet too they gross me out so bad!!! I can tolerate mine a little bit more when I get a professional pedi but even so…ugh feet haha And I know it takes a lot for me to want to buy shoes…. I will contemplate for days until I finally decide to buy them. I just think about all the other things I can/need to buy first. But to justify I like having one less thing to want to buy haha those red sneaks are the best though…. I want them in other colors (as much as I love the red) but I want to wear them with my new colorful wardrobe so I need like black (go figure) hahah.

    Totally feel you. I’m not a shoe-girl either. I love having nice shoes but I also rather spend my money on make-up. I love nr 2 the most. That is totally my style, eventhough those heels look really high. I love high heels but I’m always to lazy to wear them. I rather walk on flat shoes :’)

      Lol I used to think the same thing, I used to only wear them for very very special occasions. But then I started working a corporate job that required some fanciness, so I would walk around in them and honestly it sounds so silly but practice is all it takes. Luckily I have a high tolerance when it comes to my feet so if I wanted to I could walk around in heels all day (although I would much rather not haha) And yesss I love sneakers so so much! I only own 2, but if I had the time to wear them more I’d have a whole closet full- I can’t get enough of Nikes!

    AHHHH – okay, I used to be just like you but then I married DJ and he totally gave me a love for shoes that I never had. But I am totally beating myself over the head because that pair from Lulu’s is JUST like the Vince Camuto ones I bought last spring. If only I knew! When I’m in a rush I always overpay. Gosh darn, next time, next time. And thank you for sharing the Kate Spade sandals! Those are seriously amazing. Studded flats are ESSENTIAL. I was excited when I say them come into style. Super, super cute (especially those white ones- ahhhh I need to get a white pair now. So chic). And of course, I always love the super cute classic JJ red sneakers! You rock them well. I look weird in flat sneakers because I have giant calves. Lol.
