Summer is here! This means warm weather, beach days, outdoor fitness, and casual ensembles to match our summer fun activities. When the weather heats up, I tend to leave my leather shoes in the closet, unless I need to get dressed up for an occasion. Instead, I opt for natural fabrics, or wide open shoes which can keep my feet cool when temperatures soar.
For summer 2019, the trends in shoes are roughly the same as last year. We are still seeing wedges, mules, and smaller platforms when it comes to standard, summer staples such as flip flops and espadrilles. So hopefully some of your shoes survived last summer’s heat, beach, and water activities. If so, you won’t need to replace what survived, only fill in the holes in your wardrobe.
You know I love espadrilles! They are comfortable, easy to wear while walking on the beach, and dry off easily when splashed by pool water. The natural fibers keep feet cool, and they always offer a vacation vibe; no mater the occasion or outfit. Don’t we always want to feel like we are on vacation, even when we aren’t? haha, I do! It’s so relaxing!
This summer season, I am sticking to wedges and mules when it comes to my espadrille wardrobe. I have a few pairs I bought in the spring season, and for the summer season, I added a new pair of higher wedges, and classic black mules. This is a versatile espadrille wardrobe to carry me through the summer.
Flip flops for summer 2019
Flip flops are always a must-have when it comes to summer shoes. I like having two pairs of flat flip flops for the pool, beach, and for hot days. One pair always either breaks or ends up missing a shoe, which is why I make sure I have two pairs of flop flips on hand at all times. This beach scene pair give off a relaxing vibe, while the black palm print pair evokes visions of a tropical beach getaway. Since I am leaving for Hawaii in a few days, I thought these two pairs of flip flops were perfect for summer 2019.
Of course, sometimes we need a pair of flip flops that match our cute summer outfits. This is why I decided to add a pair of black flip flops to my summer shoe wardrobe. These one inch platform flip flops are perfect for going from the pool to the street; simply because they are classic black! There is something about black, no matter what type of clothing or accessory it is; if it’s black, it’s OK to wear anywhere. haha, love black! The cute little Tory Burch symbol by the toes doesn’t hurt either. I have always loved the design of her logo.
Hiking boots for summer
The summer season is the driest season here in the San Francisco Bay Area. This means we can go outside more. My family loves going on hikes together; so a sturdy pair of hiking boots is a must-have for the season. This pair offers ankle support, and really good arch support. It is great for rough trails, hills, and steep terrain. I can’t wait to put them to use all summer long!
Also, a good pair of sneakers is a must-have for the summer season. I love the adidas Parley running shoes pictured below. They are really comfortable, and they are made from recycled beach plastics; so they help keep our beaches and oceans clean. Ocean plastic is a huge problem, so it’s nice to know adidas is doing something about it. I will wear these all summer long when I go to the gym, go on long walks, and anytime I need to wear sneakers! Love them!
