Who says summer's ending? Not me! I'm certainly doing everything I can to keep it alive. This includes pairing one of my summeriest sandals (these new gold wedge cork sandals from Canadian brand I Want Shoes) with a tropical print dress.
Nothing better than strappy sandals & a palm print dress to keep one's mind at the beach (even when strolling through the busy, traffic laden streets of Toronto!).
I also have a style post on these cute bow wedges you can take a peek at 🙂
Gold Wedge Cork Sandals & Palm Print Dress
This cork platform sandal (that verges on being a flatform, really) is a lot more versatile than you'd think. It looks great with my tan, thank you for noticing 😉 The muted gold upper looks great with any color & can be dressed down for the beach or primped up for a chic dinner soiree. Also a great option to wear with jeans. This is one of the best shoes to wear with flared jeans & looks great with boyfriend jeans as well. Although I'd avoid skinny jeans with wedges that are almost flatform-like myself. It may make you look like a cartoon, but that's all personal preference, right?
I fell in love with this green tropical print dress from Esprit when I was in Italy this summer. They sadly pulled this US-based brand from all of North America. Which sucks. It was my go-to when I was younger & is still an affordable fashion brand, designing both staple & trendy items. On the flip side, I know I won't be seeing anyone else in Toronto wearing it. What can I say? I try to be a tad original with my clothing choices, especially with statement-making pieces such as a palm print dress! So happy to have managed to score it on sale too!
I'm all for floral prints, but as I'm a fan of green, I love me a solid print. I'm loving shirt dresses these days in particular, because you can wear them pretty much anywhere & they pair exceptionally well with most shoe types. Of course, the specific palm print I'm wearing makes shoe & accessories styling more restrictive, but with its longer sleeves & collar, you won't necessarily look like you're headed straight to the beach. You can make it more casual with a similar gold wedge cork sandals like I did. And you can even wear it out for dinner with a more elegant shoe, such as a black strappy sandal. Stuart Weitzman‘s Nudist or Steve Madden's Stecy would be a great choice!
Palm print dress: Esprit. Gold platform wedges: I Want Shoes. Fringe Purse: Winners
