{Must Have Summer Shoes}

Lace-up anything seems to be all the rage for 2016, whether it be lace-up sandals, espadrilles, tops, bodysuits; you name it, it’s lace-up! I’m not one to complain about this trend, by any means. I mean, you’ve seen practically everything I have been posting the past couple of months is geared towards lace-ups! So, I figured, I might as well dedicate an entire post to 2 of my favorite pairs of Ivanka Trump summer lace-ups!

Let me preface this post with why I’m so in love with each of these sandals. The time I have to get ready each day is extremely minimal… like 30 minutes to shower, look presentable and have a cute outfit ready to go. At this rate, you’d think I had a million kids keeping me busy! But no, my job is overly demanding and I am always in a rush to get to last minute production meetings where I should actually look like I know how to dress myself; since I’m the stylist and all!! Anyway, I’m rambling… I LOVE these shoes because they are an easy grab and go with literally any outfit I throw on. Hence, why I shot 2 completely different outfits to show how extremely versatile these shoes really are.

One of the best things about Ivanka Trump is the attention to detail and quality. You can really feel the comfort and how much time went into designing THE perfect shoe that the everyday woman can wear to work, date night, the pool, a BBQ, a wedding, etc. Not only is the quality amazing but each shoe is always on trend and never outdated. Whether you need a specific type of shoe for work that can transition to a girl’s night out, or a sandal that could double as your everyday shoe and then throw them on to head to the pool or beach. Every single pair of shoe will literally meet any need you could possibly ever have.

Because of this versatility, Ivanka’s shoes are my absolute go-to when I have a commercial styling gig. The talent isn’t going to be complaining about their feet hurting, the creative directors aren’t going to complain about an ugly shoe and the ad agency isn’t going to complain about a super high expense bill because these shoes are actually affordable! I mean, what’s not to love about these shoes!?
