Hey, Wednesday. I'm so ready for it to stop being cold. Ugh.
So nothing new really in terms of this trend, but I'm seeing pool slides having a huge moment again this Summer, and the more logo'd the better.
It seems like every designer is doing some iteration of them- from Gucci to Ferragamo to Off White (my fav of the designer ones ps) and then some. Oh and those green Balenciagas above? They're clocking in at a cool $670. Crazytown. No. Just no.
But as a bit of a classic gal when it comes to Summer shoes, I can't help but still love my OG Vans version, and I'm a big fan of the Adidas terry cloth version. So cute with a crisp white shirt dress for a bit of sportive appeal. Also why pay hundreds of dollars when you can pay way, way less for the OG versions?
I'm a fan of this trend because I love to be just about barefoot all Summer long and have long retired my Havaianas in favor of a slide. I also love that aforementioned sportiness when I'm wearing something feminine like a sundress. Just dials down the girly thing a notch and makes it much cooler. I remember being in one of my favorite stores, Warm, last summer, and peeping a girl wearing a super boho dress with the checkered Vans slide. So chic and effortless and Summer laid back. Needless to say, my Birks will still be in rotation. This whole "ugly shoe" trend is still happening and it's not going away.
So the question is- to slide or not to slide? Well, you know what my answer is. A very strong yes, please.
Cause that's what's up this dreaming about sandal season of a Wednesday in the chilly 212. Yours, in Spring is almost here. XO
