Since being a wheelchair user and using my feet to do everything, including drive my chair, wearing any kind of shoes isn’t realistic for me. I used to wear sneakers back in school, I’m still a fan of Nike sneakers. Whenever I would go to dances in middle school, I wore black shoes with a small heel. After what happened when I was in eighth grade and my controller got caught in between my heel and I almost ran into the wall I never wore high heels again. I still love high heels though! I have a whole Pinterest board deciated to my love of heels, sneakers and sandals. So I don’t exactly hate them as you would expect.
My sister got these pair of black sandals that had a cute zipper on the back of the heel and had gold studs all around the front of them. I saw them while I was scooting in our house and I became a two year old and put them on! I definitely can’t fit into them like she can, but they are so bad ass that I would love a pair if I could! As I was reminiscing about that moment I thought about creating a little guide for some of you on some of my favorites I’ve found because in all honesty I love going through the shoe aisles in different stores. Blondie got her sandals at the best place, Charlotte Russe! They have a better selection of shoes than clothes and that’s just my opinion. Blondie has a more girly girl style so she tends to find her clothes there and Forever21.
This might be a guide, but I looked at all of the sections of the store’s website for the ones that I liked the most, so this could be an unrealistic wishlist per se too! If anybody remembers my Hot Topic wishlist post I did recently, everything on that post was for spring/summer but all items were black and nothing looked “spring-y” so I have to say I’m pretty proud of myself for going for the girly looking shoes this tine around! I’ve got all of the links underneath the picture there if you can see and every pair is under $40 and just in case the sale that most were selected on the website, I’m mentioning what they really cost in case the sale goes before this post goes up!
I’m actually a big fan of Gladiator sandals, but I couldn’t find anything on the website that I really liked so these platform sandals were second best! I loved the first pair mostly because of the baby blue color against the wooden part. To me, blue, white, and pink shades scream “SPRING” loud and clear! The next pair I think I only picked it out because even though it has a white strap and cute big buckle, I put it on here because the base is darker in shade the rest! I think this are my favorite out of all eight shoes! I cannot believe I actually found a pair of pink — hot pink too that I liked! It’s very rare that I find something in any shade of pink and buy it! As much as I don’t like to admit to it, I have quite a lot of pink clothes and socks in my closet! Anyways, I think I liked these because of the straps were skinnier than the others! They just seem more girly too! For the last one at the top, I was really conflicted because on the website they have a nude (which is above!) and a silver pair right next to each other. I was very into both of them! So I’ve included both links! The nude is above and if you want to see the silver pair click here. That’s the end of the sandals part, now onto the high heels and sneakers!
I looked up their wedges and I absolutely hated them!! They just look disgusting to me! I am actually a fan of flats because I find they’re really boring too, so that’s why I didn’t include them in this post! The first pair of heels I found actually have two different floral designs at the toes. If you go on the link, it’ll be part of the sizing and purchasing. I also found a pair just like this one but in white instead of black and I think the floral design was in green and yellow. It was really pretty! Over the years, looking at different types of heels I’ve become quite picky and I hate the pointy front of some heels, but I love number six because of two reasons: it’s simple and classy! Perfect shoes to wear to an outdoor wedding too! Since I discussed of how much I love sneakers I thought I’d put up one that I liked the most and this one caught my eye and said “get me!” I love the feminine look to it. It looks like a good walking shoe to me, but what the hell do I know about walking? I like the floral design on the side and thought it was cute! Last one, my mom and sister are obsessed with these shoes! They each have their own pair in different colors and I thought the light blue was a little bit more me.
So for my first shoe haul, what were your favorites? I know most would probably say “go barefoot” to this question, but what is your favorite spring/summer shoe to wear?
