Summer is almost here! The first thing in my closet ready for summer, was my summer shoe capsule! I only purchased one pair of shoes for the summer 2021 season; these square toe loafers. Square toe loafers are a huge emerging shoe trend, and I want to be ready for the trend to be on fire this fall. This pair of loafers is perfect since they are a neutral hue which plays well with both summer, and fall color palettes. Plus, they are soft, and comfortable to walk around in. Love that!

The yellow slides, black slides, and sculpted heel slides are pulled from my spring capsule. They worked well in the spring season, and will continue to work well in the summer season. The puffy shoe trend, and comfort slide trend, are both still relevant in the summer season, so they are easy shoes to continue to wear. Plus, sculpted heels are gaining momentum on the streets, and will likely continue well into the fall season. This is pair of sculpted heel mules is a great investment to wear now and throughout the rest of the year.

I can never get enough sneakers! These Gucci platform sneakers are super comfortable, and have been in my shoe collection for a couple of years now. They are perfect for days which require walking, travel, and general everyday comfort. They will continue to get a lot of wear from me! In addition, these canvas boat shoes serve the same purpose, but are much more comfortable on warm summer days. They can be worn without socks, and offer coolness plus comfort while walking. They have already been getting a lot of wear during the spring season, I anticipate they will get a ton of wear this summer as temperatures continue to warm up. They are a must-have this summer for travel and walking days!

Summer 2021 espadrilles

Espadrilles are a must-have every summer. Not only are they soft and comfortable for walking, they are cool on hot days, and allow for easy walking on the beach. I cannot live without espadrilles in the summer! This pair of wedge espadrilles is a summer go-to for me. I have owned them for several years, and have purchased them in black and a darker tan color throughout the years. The ivory hue is my favorite. It seems to go with everything. Plus, they are priced under $100 which is always fabulous!

Another classic pair of must-have espadrilles are these classic flats. I have them in both black and grey. They are comfortable, easy to walk in, and ideal for hot summer, casual days. They go with shorts, casual skirts, sundresses, and pants. Love!

This summer, since things are opening up, and I plan to go places, I decided to invest in a pair of leather espadrilles. This tan pair is a great neutral hue which is easy to wear with almost anything. They are very comfortable and look more structured for lunches and daytime events than the canvas pairs. They are a great alternative for being casual, yet put-together. They are also from my spring capsule, and I have loved wearing them. I may pick up an ivory pair as the summer progresses. The ivory is a really pretty color, and the style is classic, so they can be worn every summer. Love!

What shoes are you wearing this summer? This is my summer 2021 capsule wardrobe, which may seem larger than my usual shoe capsule wardrobes, but they are mostly repeat shoes from spring and previous seasons; so this summer shoe capsule is a culmination of several investment pairs of shoes. I love a good investment shoe which can be worn season after season, year after year! It’s a great way to save money; so you know, we can buy handbags. haha

Stay tuned for my summer handbag capsule coming later this week! Check out my summer capsule wardrobe, which I posted last week.

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring 2021 shoe capsule wardrobe

First off, apologies for the grainy photo. My camera is starting to act up, and it may be time for a new one. This was the best shot I could get with it. Stay tuned for a camera update later this month! Now, onto spring shoes!

My spring 2021 shoe capsule wardrobe is here! This spring, life is on the casual side. I put my high heels in the closet, as well as my wedge espadrilles, in the hopes of pulling them out this summer when things open up a bit more. Here in California, we are still somewhat locked down. We can enjoy outdoor dining, and outdoor activities, but everything that is open is on the casual side, and requires footwear to match. Shoes I can walk in are a must! So heels and wedges are stored for next season. Waiting for those vaccines!

Spring shoes for the 2021 season are a little bit more fun than they have been in previous years. We are looking at the puffy pillow trend, which started with handbags, and has now moved to shoes; and we are also looking at the square toe. Put these two trends together, and your footwear is fun!

I normally prefer neutral shoes, but for spring 2021, I decided one pair of fun, yellow shoes was a necessity. It’s been such a stressful, and crazy, twelve months, so adding a little bit of fun to our wardrobes this season will brighten the day as we look towards the light at the end of the tunnel.

I love this puffy yellow pair of slides. They are comfy and soft, yet offer a little bit of height with the block heel. I can walk around in them, and kick them off easily in the car. If you are only buying one pair of shoes this spring season, buy something fun!

comfort shoe spring 2021 under 100

If you have been reading my blog, you know all about comfort shoes for spring! I love these comfy slides, and espadrilles are also slipper-like on my feet. These are my two go-to comfort shoes this spring season. I also have a pair of Birkenstocks, but I tend to wear them around the house. They are well-loved.

Espadrilles, and any pair of open toe shoes, will easily carry us all into the summer season. These are good investments to wear for spring, and throughout the warm weather seasons. Closed toe slides will also carry us through fall. This makes slides a great investment shoe for 2021! Love that!

Shoe! Glorious Shoes! Well, I am most excited about shoes this season, which is why I am posting my shoe capsule wardrobe before my clothing and handbags this holiday season. Can you blame me? Shoes are glorious!

This holiday season, life is more casual and quiet and than in holiday seasons past. This means I am looking more for utility rather than sparkle in my holidays 2020 shoe capsule wardrobe. These block heel booties are perfect to pair with jeans. They are comfortable for walking plus they have a little bit of lift to make me a couple inches taller. They really add polish to an everyday look. Love!

Lug soles are hotter than hot this season, and while I thought I might avoid the trend since I already own a couple pairs of lug soles boots, I couldn’t help myself. After all, I didn’t have a flat pair; only heels. So of course, I felt the need to add a flat pair to my closet! This pair of lug sole boots is super comfortable for walking and standing, plus, they are waterproof! They will be perfect once our rainy season starts. I tried to clean them up as much as possible for these photos, but my apologies, they have been getting quite a bit of wear and are showing it. They are my go-to boots right now!

cozy slippers holiday gift ideas

My grey stamped croc loafers have been in my capsule wardrobe since fall, and they are great for warmer days. If you haven’t jumped on the classic loafer trend yet, I highly recommend snapping up a pair. They come in tons of colors, and never go out of style! Love that!

‘Tis the season for cozy and soft slippers. I cannot get enough of these fabulous slippers. They are super cozy and soft. They would also make a great gift for the holidays! Love that they are priced under $75.

These square toe heels are on trend and a must-have for any capsule shoe wardrobe. Fingers crossed I have somewhere to wear them this season! They are very comfortable, but with all of our lockdowns, heels haven’t been something I have needed to wear. When we get our vaccines, I will find a lot of excuses to wear high heels! Just wait! haha

Lastly, we all need one pair of fabulous sneakers for walking and everyday wear. As you may have noticed, these have been in my seasonal capsule wardrobes for the last couple of years. They are high quality and super comfortable. If you are looking for a great investment, these are it!
