We have over 5 more weeks before summer ends and I wanted to highlight the shoe trends that fascinated me with sheer excitement! Let’s start with the gladiator sandals…
Yes, the gladiator sandal has been trendy for a while now, but as a shoe addict, I can’t get enough! Stuart Weitzman designed the Cava Nappa—a very edgy gladiator sandal that looks sexy with a basic pair of cut-off jean shorts or even with a cute summer dress—and it brings mad sex appeal and gives me life! This particular sandal has also been seen on the likes of Kourtney Kardashian and Selena Gomez.

Wedges are extremely versatile and I love wearing them. Wait, let me take that back…if I see you wearing a wedge with a pencil skirt or capris…I’m coming after you! Wedges actually go perfectly with a short skirt, shorts, maxi skirts, etc, which is why my go-to summer wedges are the Nicole Miller 'Janey' Wedge and the Steve Madden 'Whitneyy' wedges. They provide comfort and I can go from day-to-night with these babies. The 'Whitneyy' wedge also features killer hardware that makes the shoe pop—it’s so sexy!

If you want a seductive and sexy look, your go-to shoe should be the STEVEN by Steve Madden's Lipsrvce pump—oooohhh la la! This extremely flattering shoe features silver-tone detailing on the vamp and ankle strap. So, if you have that hot date ladies, this is one will surely wooo him in.
