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?


  1. omg this is so cute and these shoes are a great way to dress up a casual look just like you did. I think I need the zara ones!

  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.

  3. what a brilliant sweater, love it! and nice to try a trend for less too, though it's not really my style i still think it's pretty!
