Summer comfort. That is all I can think about as the temperatures continue to rise.

Thank goodness Aquazzura brings us the Belgravia suede espadrille. Versatile, comfortable, stylish. I love the signature ankle ties. All wrapped up in one fabulous shoe! Oh the places it can go — lunch, casual meeting, field trip, outdoor barbecue, shopping, concert, festival, end of school year celebration, dinner on the patio, the list goes on. Literally.

So enjoy!

vincebluesuedeI've always wanted blue suede shoes. In my head, I pictured fabulous heels. However, this particular pair is perfectly suited for spring.

Woven espadrille slip-ons, in general, are not the easiest fit for a narrow foot. However, it was love at first sight when I spotted Vince's Robin suede flat in coastal. Gorgeous navy color!

The suede is soft and the footbed is super comfy. I may never take these off.

Finally, I am barefoot worthy.

After months of hibernation, my toes are ready to be seen. Well, that’s only due to a mani/pedi today. I am ashamed to admit that it’s been far too long since my last one.

As I head out for warmer temps (and palm trees), I am eager to slide my feet back into some of my favorite heels. They will be the perfect pairing for my light wash distressed jeans and my new spring dresses that just arrived from Mexico. However, with ‘of the moment’ Birks and sports slides, I may fall into comfortably lazy at the drop of a hat.

No matter what shoes adorn my feet, I will be sure to keep them soft, moisturized and crack-free at all times (I swear by Glytone’s Ultra Heel and Elbow Cream). Because there’s nothing worse than non-barefoot worthy feet in killer heels!

Dear, The Office of Angela Scott.

Thank you for creating your goodyear welted luxury footwear brand. I have my good friend, Allyson, to thank for the introduction. Your deep admiration for the authenticity and quality of traditional craftsmanship, blended with your appreciation of the punk mentality and aesthetic, makes you truly unique in your shoe endeavor. The quality of your creations don’t stop with hand-carved lasts and fine leathers. All finishes, including brogue-ornamentation and serrated details, are meticulously fashioned by hand.

I must tell you, I am head over heels for your White Magic Miss Jackson bootie. She's edgy. Delicious. And she's definitely confident. I must have her.

Thank you for designing her.

Sincerely,

Catherine

If you didn't take note of the slide affair the past two summers, it's time.

Think: comfort meets front row.

Just like pairing sneakers with trousers and dresses, slides will become a part of your everyday arsenal. You will feel like you are getting away with something!

This spring, Birks and sport slides are aplenty. And super comfortable. There are so many amazing options in every price range. Everybody wins!

I am especially digging this affordable, comfortable and stylish double leather strap slip-on sandal by NAYA. The footbed is padded for extra comfort. And the widest strap is perforated. If only they fit narrow feet!
