When Tabitha Simmons isn’t designing fabulous heels she is the contributing stylist at American Vogue, so we know that she constantly knows what is in-style before anyone. Toni is from Tabitha Simmons’s latest collection featuring gold and silver two-tone leather making it a great sandal to match any type of jewelry. They’re set on a block heel and have a slim ankle strap. We would pair these sandals with some of our favorite dresses from RIXO London, Diane von Furstenberg and Self-Portrait.

We can’t get enough of Tabitha Simmons beautiful floral covered Spring/Summer 2016 collection. It’s feminine, it’s romantic, it’s wearable – it’s everything you want in a springtime shoe. There’s a flower for everyone including cherry blossoms, sweet perennials and a multi-color bouquet…but we’re particularly drawn to this Iris sandal.

They feature a natural beige raffia body, thin tapered stiletto heel, circle shaped straps embroidered throughout with bright red wildflowers, side ankle-tie close embellished with tassels and tan leather lining. Half sizes are available.

During my [long] break from blogging, and even though I wasn’t writing everyday, I was still checking out the latest collections – once a shoe lover, always a shoe lover ☺.

One of the reasons I felt it took me so long to get back to blogging is that I couldn’t help but feel overall uninspired by everything I was seeing stocked in my favorite stores. Aside from a few standouts here & there, the designs seemed monotonous. Which is the reason why I have so much respect for designers who manage to balance creativity with wearability and staple pieces while at the same time maintaining a unique brand voice.

I was browsing through new spring styles and wanted to share the shoes which really caught my eye:
