  1. I'm loving the bold colors and neutrals trends. I've been searching for a good pair of neutral wedges. That drink is genius!

  2. All of these shoes look so nice… but if I had to chose one in each category; these would be my choice: “be bold and color – 5 Dolce Vita Ida Gladiator Blue Suede Sandal”, “safari chic – 6 Guess Women's Palban Sandals”, “neon explosion – 1 DV Dora Neon Flat Sandals” and final but not least “hot neutrals – 7 See by Chloe Sorano Flat Sandals”

  3. Yum, margaritas!!! Love the shoes and the recipe!! : )

  4. I am LOVING all those shoes! I can't even decide which pair I like the best and I can't wait to make that margarita recipe. Thanks for the amazing post today and I'm so excited to be a part of this series with you amazing girls!

    1. The Joe shoe is our FAVE!! Just love it!! Toes is the sand...YES PLEASE!! :-)

  7. That "Tyra" sandal...get in my closet!
    Margaritas are probably my favorite summery drink...we make them with frozen limeade concentrate, ice, tequila and triple sec and I think they're the best margaritas I've ever had! :)

    Left brain, right brain, pug brain.

  11. Ladies! Great picks today!! I love those red TOMs & they're soo comfy... but I also own the TB flat thongs (but not yellow, they're brown) and they're so cute but not too supportive {especially for a 8 hour work day on my feet at a clothing boutique}... I love all these shoes though, yall did great! And that margarita looks soo refreshing! Yum yum!

  12. We have a Friday nite margarita tradition - yummy!

  25. So much goodness I don't know where to start! I definitely want the #1 in bold and the cute DV sandals in the neons. I guess I really love brights right now! :)

  26. Amazing post girls! I was going through each shoe section saying "okay I want those, and those and those" heheh. I love all your picks and the neon ones are really fun. That is the easiest margarita ever, almost too easy to just keep in the fridge haha. I've had that limeade before and never thought of doing that, perfect cocktail, Patron margaritas are my fave. Can't believe Sips & Styles is almost over :)

  27. I love those nude wedges! I've been into nude shoes recently, they go with everything! And I seriously want a margarita! Definitely going to try that recipe this weekend :) Jessica

  29. I think I bumped my head and went to shoe heaven. So many gorgeous pairs how does one choose? Think i am having a preference for the bright colours, they are immediately attractive!

  30. Loving the Michael Kors neutral sandals!

  31. I haven't had a margarita in a while. It being Hump Day sounds like a good enough reason. :D

    Can't get enough of the bold colors coming out on everything! Love it!!

  32. Wow I love all those fun shoes!! I think it would be too hard to pick just one. After making one of those margaritas, I'd probably end up buying them all :)

  33. i loooove colors!!! my favorite is the blue suede gladiator sandals! :)

  35. Saw those red Toms, I just bought those. Love 'em!


  36. I am liking all of the shoe trends excluding safari. I am not a huge safari or animal print girl. But I really like the bold and the neon choices! Margaritas are one of my favorite drinks but I haven't had one in sooooooo long by being pregnant now I'm nursing! It looks so good!
