Trending: Embellished Sandals

Sandals and summertime go together like peanut butter and jelly.  Or as our dear friend Forrest Gump so wisely said, like peas and carrots.

The relationship between summer and sandal makes complete sense. Summer is easy, unfussy, more relaxing and lazy than other seasons.  Sandals are easy, fussy, and more casual and confining than other shoes.  images-14

Trending this summer is the embellished sandal.  Fringe, pom-poms, beading, eyelets, straps.  Buckles, snaps, charms, cords, ties.   Everything but the kitchen sink.  Sometimes, all on the same sandal! _11799479

I’ll say this: I would likely not wear any of these to the beach!  What are your thoughts?  Too fussy?  Is less more when it comes to sandals, or are you loving this trend?
