SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Gucci

A pair of perfect black boots are basically quintessential to each winter.  Gucci has made an extremely enviable pair this season, complete with their signature navy and red canvas panel and gold pearl embellishments.  Wear them with cropped & flared culottes and a tied neck scarf for a perfectly polished, french-inspired look.

Dolce & Gabbana are known for having delicate & intricate designs, of which the details become the most important parts.  These embellished sandals, complete with jewel-tone beads, yellow bananas, and forest green pompoms clearly represent their new jungle theme through each of the detailed elements, while the raffia-style heel and clasp adds a natural final touch.  They also have a similar pair in red and black.  Match them with a wicker bag, like this one by D&G here, and with a flowy, white sundress for the perfect summer look.

These baby blue boots are one of the standout pieces from Vetement’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection.  They are created from a stretchy textile to look like a pair of socks, highlighting the athleisure trend that is everywhere this season.  The yellow and silver metal heel provides a cheeky contrast.  Wear them with a boxy dress or cropped silk pants to show off the design. VETEMENTS Sock ankle boots

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Aquazzura X Poppy Delevingne

Anytime great fashion designers collaborate with coveted style icons, the end result is amazing across the board.  This season, Aquazzura and Poppy Delevingne brought their fashion forces together to create a beautiful collection of sandals and boots inspired by the bohemian style of her wedding in Morocco.

One of my favorites from the collection are these Midnight sandals, created with nude suede and metallic leather.  They are embedded with astrological symbols and turquoise stones, which look incredible contrasted against the shimmery gold.

Style ’em with a pair of oversized silk shorts à la Poppy (do a Pinterest search for Poppy Delevingne’s style if you’re confused), or with a flowing midi skirt to amplify the free-spirited feel of these sandals.
