Metallic style & comfort for the busy mum over summer

img_20161114_124009I’m normally a jandals or barefeet kind of girl in summer. However, as I have become more adventurous with my own style and stepped outside of my fashion comfort zone, I find myself wanting to add a little more style to my accessories – Summer is for relaxing after all, isn’t it? Of course a shoe that has style & comfort isn’t always an easy find but I’ve found the perfect pair. Oh and I have a pair to GIVEAWAY too so make sure you read to the bottom.

When it comes to style this summer it’s all about adding sparkle. Metallics have not only been trending in homewares this year but are also trending big time in fashion for Summer 2016/17; everywhere you look there are metallic accents and that little bit of bling. For someone who normally wears a lot (maybe too much) black but lots of silver jewellery, I love seeing the metallic trend in full force. ….my latest find are the beautiful silver Ziera Tarin sandals. Style, tick, and because they’re made from the softest leather and with easily the most comfortable sole (much easier on my feet than jandals!), comfort, tick.

Wearing a hint of metallic really adds something to an outfit which could otherwise be quite basic. I have put together a few outfits below with my new Ziera Tarin silver summer sandals ranging from the casual summer days shorts & tee to something a little more special.

Nights are not always the warmest here in NZ even in the middle of summer, so I’m most likely to throw on a pair of jeans as the day cools off. These summer sandals still look great with jeans and the silver looks fantastic paired with the also very on-trend mustard yellow that I have just started wearing a bit of lately too.

Of course what is summer without couple of parties either by the pool or at the beach? Swimwear paired with some denim shorts or the ever-versatile jumpsuit also looks great with my silver sandals. Seriously the most versatile summer shoe I have owned (apart from my barefeet of course!)

I’m certain I will be living in both style and comfort in my new sandals this summer…’s hoping the weather plays nice AND I am lucky enough to be able to share the new-shoe love with one lucky reader as I have a $250 voucher from the Ziera to giveaway.

  1. Love love love metallic sandals… Love Ziera Style, would look awesome this Christmas Season … Love My Beloved Style ! ??

  2. Love these Tarin sandals in the silver & also the black ? Ziera shoes are so comfortable… I only recently discovered them ?

  3. These ones for sure! In fact I think I’m going to get them! I can’t wear jandals or slides anymore and have been searching for an alternative.

  4. Love the way you’ve styled these sandals – so pretty and they look so versatile. My pick is the Ziera Tarin silver sandals

  5. I live in sandals through the summer except last summer. I was heavily pregnant and horrified when my feet and ankles swelled so much I had to wear jandals to work and maxi dresses to hide them! I could not wait for them to go down once I had my daughter just so I could wear my faves again before the were put away again. So weird how that one thing bothered me (they sometimes swelled to my knees) but I did love being pregnant again. I adore the Tarin sandals and have been coveting them for a while but can’t quite justify the purchase whilst on the last few months of maternity! Love your work as always 🙂

  6. Love the Tina in the metallic & the tony in the tan, can’t decide between the two, Tina for the go to casual & Toni be perfect for the summer weddings & twlight races
