The Best Summer Shoes to Wear for Every Occasion (Plus a Huge Nordstrom Giveaway!)

Ah, shoes. My love for shoes really never ends, and summer is the perfect excuse to snatch up a few new pairs of on-trend summer shoes that work with this heat. Towards the end of every spring and start of summer, I can’t wait to break out my Tory Burch sandals. Easily one of the comfiest and best summer shoes I own, they’re also a breeze to slip on, and go with everything. I have them in camel (“Vintage Vachetta”) and black leather, and I’m seriously considering scooping up a pair in nude (“Makeup”). I’ve also been wearing these Dolce Vita gladiator sandals since last summer, and I’m obsessed with these summer shoes. They’re 33% off at Nordstrom right now, making them a total steal.

A new pair of flip flops or sandals to take to the beach, pool, and on vacation are also usually on my summer shopping list. These bow-topped flip flops are adorable, and I love that between the bow and the gold buckle detail, they pack just a little bit of glamour. For an easy, everyday pair of slides, these Topshop leopard cross strap sandals are amazing and just $45! And my favorite spring Free People booties now come in a summer sandal style; sign me up. I’m also loving all of the espadrilles out there right now. I’ve never been much of a sneaker girl, but the more I’m on my feet, running around, and growing by the minute, the more I’m craving an easy pair of sneakers. These Joie slip on sneakers are cute, get rave reviews, and they come in the prettiest soft blush pink. (They’re also on sale!)

You’ve probably seen this pair of heeled Steve Madden sandals on everyone stylish that you know, and for good reason; these summer shoes are relatively affordable, comfortable for heels, and come in every color and pattern you could possibly want. By the way, if the heel height scares you, this low-heeled version is equally perfect. And let’s not forget that wishlist; if you’re looking to splurge, go for something like a pair of Valentino Rockstud sandals or sleek strappy nude Stuart Weitzman heels you’ll wear and hold on to forever. Clearly I have sandals and slides on the brain; so I’m rounding up the best summer shoes to wear for every occasion.

Trend-Spotting: A Huge Roundup of Summer Gingham

Every Summer, I fall in love with the gingham trend all over again. There’s something so refreshing about the classic Summer pattern. It’s a trend that really gets new life every year. Plus, the gingham trend is the easiest way to get away with black and white, despite the heat. And you know I just can’t let go of my staple color – black – ever.

From preppy to on-trend styles, gingham prints are used in the most unexpected of ways in today’s looks. And truth talk: I want it all. So I’ve got my eye on the trend, and I’m rounding up a huge selection of my favorite gingham trend for this Summer.

Best of The Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale (What to Shop Right Now)

Like clockwork, just a few weeks before the start of summer, comes one of Nordstrom‘s biggest sales of the year, and let me just say, I am obsessed with the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale. Most seasoned shoppers will tell you that the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale is hands-down one of the best sales of the year. My mom got me hooked years and years ago. We used to love going through the catalog and circling our “must-haves” and then heading to the store on the first day of the sale to see all of the goodies in person. It really is a GREAT sale.

So what’s all the fuss about? Once a year, Nordstrom rolls out this huge sale where you can save up to 40% on the season’s most popular Men, Women and Kids styles, plus home and shoes. The items marked on sale are SO good, that things sell out fast. That’s because the items marked down during the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale are actually brand new in-season items, just hitting shelves, and marked down for a super limited time as part of Nordstrom’s big sales push.

I get my favorite bags, shoessunglasses (they even have Prada and Dior on sale and up to 40% off!), clothes, and home décor (the options are amazing this sale) every year at the Half-Yearly Sale. They really and end up being some of my favorite pieces each year. So I’m helping YOU while the best items are still available and telling you what to shop right now!

Plus a few more of my favorite things:

 

Plus, Nordstrom always has FREE Shipping and FREE Returns; a huge perk (ahem, incentive for ordering online and actually getting to check the item out, try it on, and be sure it’s everything you want and more).

So what are you waiting for, get to shopping! Don’t forget, the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale runs from May 24th through June 4th.

And be sure to let me know what you scoop up!

12 Pretty Little Summer Dresses

Once the summer heat sets in, temperatures can be pretty brutal on fashion. Style gets compromised for comfort, because let’s face it, no one wants to sweat in a brand new outfit. Lucky for us, season after season, pretty little summer dresses always come back, and this season, there are some seriously cute contenders. I’m loving feminine, lightweight dresses that feel just a little more special than the norm and/or have the right flattering cut to battle any day, but are casual enough to throw on with a pair of flat sandals and be out the door.

By the way, this dress, at just $34 is an awesome casual basic that you’ll wear all Spring and Summer long, and transitions really easily into Fall over a pair of leggings or tights. (I have it both in black and the striped version, and because it’s so flowy, it works really well as a non-maternity maternity dress too. For reference, I wear a medium, and it runs big.)

I’m rounding up a few favorite pretty little summer dresses with those special details, so that you can beat the heat in style … and a top knot, and a very large bottle of water.

12 Pretty Little Summer Dresses, including a favorite I wear all year long. Click through for the details. | glitterinc.com | @glitterinc

Row 1: Alexis Fulton Dress // Cynthia Rowley Zodiac Print Multi Ruffle Dress // Apiece Apart Piper Petal Dress // ENGLISH FACTORY Striped Dress

Row 2: Rhode Resort Ella Print Dress // Free People Dear You Mini Dress // Pia Pauro Embroidered Swing Dress // Lemlem Assaman Beach Dress

Row 3: For Love & Lemons Strapless Shirtdress // Free People Fleur Du Jour Mini Dress // Moon River Asymmetrical Drape Strap Dress // Poupette St Barth Sasha Mini Dress
