Spring Trend For Less: The Embellished Sandals


This winter season was all about the embellished tops, this spring/summer it's about the embellished sandals. Designers like J.Crew and Kate Spade who aren't afraid of the overly feminine embellished clothing are now bringing their embellishments to their shoes. I for one fell in love with the Kate Spade Avila Sandal. They are easy to slip on sandals that can be dressed up with a skirt and dress for a day look or paired with a casual summer look with a pair of shorts. As soon as I saw H&M's take on this trend I knew had to get my hands on a pair of them.

How I Wore the Trend:

I wore the H&M sandals for a casual Saturday while running some errands around the city. Paired with a slouchy summer sweater and easy breezy pair of shorts for a simple day look. These sandals def. added a bit of sparkle that a casual look needs.

What do you think about this trend? Would you splurge on the designers or steal the look for less?

  2. Love that billowy top you're wearing! I think this trend is very cute- I really like the J.Crew version, although I would definitely not want to spend that amount.
