Shoes are my secret obsession.  I love, love, love getting a new pair of sandals or sneakers and rocking them with the perfect outfit to go along with them!  There are a few styles that are going to be extremely “in” this summer.  Here are a few so you can get a head start on your summer shoe wardrobe!

  • Ankle-wrap sandals. Chelsea Crockett - Wrap Heels I love this trend!  You can get a pair that wrap around once or several times.  It can be subtle like the picture on the right or thick ribbon that starts to wrap up your leg.  They’re all so cute and stylish!
  • Patterned heels and wedges.  I’m a pattern type of girl so bright, fun patterned shoes are my favorite.  Especially just a simple pattern that will make your outfit pop is better than nothing at all! 🙂
  • Off-white.  Although white is a timeless color that’ll never go out of style, buy an off-white pair of sandals or wedges for this summer.  Neutral colors are always good to have on hand!
  • Platform heels.  Platform heels can be tricky to walk in at times but they’re so cute!  Purchase a pair to add to your shoe wardrobe to spice up your outfits this summer!
  • Shoes with some shine.  This can be anywhere from a metallic pair of sneakers or some shiny gold heels.  These will guarantee to give your overall outfit a little pop!

Which style is your favorite?  Let me know below! 🙂

Repair Hacks to Make Your Shoes Look Good as New

When I love a certain pair of shoes, I hate seeing them get worn out day after day.  There’s always that one favorite pair that you have to say goodbye to after so many wears!  Since I want to get the most out of my shoes and definitely get my money’s worth, here are a few shoe repair hacks that will make your shoes look good as new!

  • Use toothpaste and a toothbrush to restore whiteness to your tennis shoes.  Don’t underestimate what a little toothpaste can do!  Scrub any parts of your shoe that need some shining.Chelsea Crockett - Shoe Hack
  • Cover any scratches with nail polish.  Whatever the color of your shoe may be, apply some nail polish to camouflage any noticeable marks and scratches.  Let it fully dry before wearing them!
  • If you have a pair of suede shoes, use a nail file to get rid of any stains or scratches.  I had never heard of this hack before, but it really works!  Lightly rub the nail file against the suede to eliminate any annoying stains or scratches.
  • Believe it or not, you can get rid of scratches on leather with a little moisturizer.  If you ever wear leather, then you know it can get beat up pretty easily!  Adding a dab of moisturizer will loosen up the leather and make any scratches disappear.   

Try a hack or two out for yourself!  They really work!

5 Reasons Heels Aren’t Worth it

High heels are totes adorbs. I will give you that much. But you know what totally stinks about them? How severely uncomfortable they are. Here are 5 reasons why high heels aren’t worth it.

1. THEY ARE (DUH) UNCOMFORTABLE:

I have met girls that say they love high heels and could walk a mile in them. To them I say: lucky ducks! For the other 90% of us, we experience pain within 1 hour of wearing heels. Why be uncomfortable?

 

2. THEY HAVE NO SUPPORT:

Heels often offer zero arch or ankle support which can cause tons of pains throughout your body. The fact is that your feet were not designed to wear high heels, especially not every day for long periods of time.Comic-3638610742d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e_700b

 

3. THEY DON’T REALLY MAKE YOU LOOK TALLER:

Sure, that extra 2 or 3 inches feels like a ton of extra height to you, but to the average joe you look pretty much the same! If you want your legs to look longer you should wear shoes that have an open top so you aren’t cutting your legs off at the ankles. Also, pointy toed shoes elongate your feet and legs, so grab a pair of flats like this!

 

4.  THEY MAKE IT DIFFICULT BE ACTIVE

Do you ever see photos of models in magazines wearing 4 inch heels and running down the street to catch a cab, with their hair and dress blowing in the wind? Totally not realistic. If you have ever tried to get somewhere in a hurry while wearing heels, you know that the words “hurry” and “heels” do not go together.

 

5. THEY ARE JUST AS CUTE AS FLATS:

Trust me when I say that a cute pair of flats is just as chic as a cute pair of heels. You can look polished and professional in both! Plus, flats tend to be a bit more affordable. 😉

 

Don’t force yourself to suffer through a day wearing heels when you would be just as well of wearing a cute pair of flats!

XOXO, Chels
