Tuesday Shoes-day: Pearl Sandals

My shoe wardrobe is filled with classic, simple styles.  Style, durability and comfort, this is my calling.  But while classics are best, sometimes, it’s nice to reach for a unique, trendy piece.

Pearl-embellished shoes are everywhere this season.  The pearl accents are pretty, feminine, and just a little bit glam. This Zara pair is popular but too ostentatious for me.  So I went looking for something more subtle.

These Steve Madden Joie Embellished Sandals ($69) are a nice mix of utility and chic.  The double-strap style is easy to wear.  They come in tan, if you’re looking for something light.  They also come in black, if you want a bit more drama.  And best of all, the soles are rubbery, so they are slightly more comfortable than most sandals I’ve worn.

If you love pearl-embellished styles, they’re easy to find, right now.  These Stuart Weitzman sandals are on-trend now, but could also be worn to holiday parties and wedding for years to come.  If they’re out of your price range, these Boohoo sandals are an affordable copy.  Want to bring pearl into your work wardrobe?  These Carvella ballet flats would be fun with a pair of skinny trousers and a sleek white blouse.

    Oooooh, I like these as a first step into the pearl stud trend! Very classic base color, too. 🙂

    I like these in theory, but am curious how they’ll look on my wide feet. Definitely looking forward to trying on a pair soon.

    FYI the Boohoo sandals/SW lookalikes are currently on sale, 50% off with a promo code. I may actually get them if they’re $30 plus $6 shipping.

    These are cute, but I am not a big sandal person. Has anyone seen any pumps or flats with pearl detailing?

      The Carvella ballet flats Belle linked to at the end of the post are pretty, and with the black/white color scheme would be versatile for both work and slightly fancier outfits. I’ll keep an eye out for others that I see and will post if I find additional interesting options.
