'It' Shoes Of The Season

One word that comes to mind with this seasons trending shoes is 'Versatility'. Unlike last season when the emphasis was on a handful of styles ('The barely there sandals' aka skinny sandals was about the biggest trend). This season presents a lot more variation, everyone's shoegasm can be satisfied  -  funky sneakers, colorful, dotted or striped flats  and pumps, metallic details and shades, laser-cut sandals and clunky platforms, there's an options for every shoe lover.  Here are some of the hot new trends in shoes.

Funky Flats
Flat shoes are a wardrobe staple that most people wear all year round, nothing quite beats the comfort one gets from flat shoes. Though practical and comfortable, this season's flat shoe trend is not short on swags. I'm loving the effortless chicness of the pointy toe flat, the shape of this shoe helps give the illusion of length, and anything that lengthens our legs is a buy, No? The flats this season, are funky and in some cases totally out there, no modesty needed here - from brogues, to ballets, oxfords, to loafers and Birkenstocks, flats are bang on trend.

These backless beauties are looking to be a favourite, this season mules takes on a host of modern styles, stiletto heels, platforms, architectural and sometimes jeweled.

Sports Inspired
Sports inspired elements are a big trend both in apparels and footwear. The sports inspired look is a fine balance of luxe, chic and sporty. Cute covetable sneakers and chic sporty sandals that can be paired with practically anything to get that luxe sport chic is a must have this season . I tend to favour the more feminine styled sneakers because they work better with my style of clothing. These footwear are great for pants, shorts,  rompers / jumpsuits,  mini skirts and of course trending sport inspired apparels.

I didn't think I would ever wear gladiators, seriously this shoe trended(Is that even a word?) in the days of the bible! its the pure definition of a true relic. But this seasons gladiators comes in a variety of styles to suit everyones preference, from the original style to a more streamlined look.
The streamlined gladiators with metallic details is my cup of tea, totally chic and with fewer buckles, its a modern take on the age old style. Its great for walking too! hello! anything to work those buns. This would be a hot trend this summer, I totally want one.

Statement Heels
I don't think these need any explanations, they speak for themselves. Bold, confident and totally out there.

Chunky Heels

This season's heel is chunky and gives off some kind of retro vibe. They come in both pumps and sandals, Pair those georgous chunky heeled sandals with some coloured tights and a sheath dress for a great 60's mod look.

Kitten heels

Excited about what's on offer this season? so many goodness to choose from - What's not to love?

Feeling Yolo in Mod

What I'm wearing -  Dress - Gabby and Skye  (sold-out  @ Dressed)|| Pumps - Xappeal || Purse-  Dkny   (Available  @ Dressed)|
Have I been wearing a lot of yellow lately? oh well :). I love the easy and casual feel of this mod inspired dress, just the right elements for the way I was feeling during the shoot. 'Yolo' is an acronym for 'You only live once', A remainder to be thankful for each day we are alive,  savor every second we are alive by living in the moment,  and for our lives to count for something positive towards fellow humans and our communities. My prayers go out to the families of the victims of flight MH370, the last couple of days must have been very tough for them, now to receive such heart wrenching news. I pray God grants them the strength and grace to bear the loss, Amen.

Enjoy the rest of your day!
