Summer Shoe Trends 2020 // From Square toe sandals to Block heels // ft. Flashybox

Hi Loves,

I love shoes (as much as the next person) but lately it seems that comfort and quarantine has made an adjustment to my, collectively the shoe department. Everywhere I go has left me wearing sweats, a t shirt, and a pair of slide sandals and do I regret my style choices ─  HELL NAW ! But as I count the days, I am immediately switching my socks & sandals for the trendiest of shoes of 2020.

As 2020 settles into warm weather and sunny days, I think its safe to say that the trends for shoes has shifted to Bold prints and comfortable silhouettes. ( Bye bye high heels, and say hello to kitten heels, mules, and sneakers).

Let’s talk heels for a second, Being that this is the year of canceling; I hereby cancel uncomfortable footwear for this season and the seasons to come. Instead of sky high stilettos it looks like the shoe trends have reverted back to the simple styles of the 90’S ── and lets face it the era of fashion can do no wrong. Read on to see the bold selections that I have chosen from Flashybox, and I can assure you, they are all worth trying.

Town square on your knee heeled sandals |

90’s trends are thriving! I don’t know how many times I have discussed these styles of shoes, but here I go again; the square toe sandals is a MUST in fashion. When it comes to these simplistic yet sexy shoes, they are easily the most comfortable heel I ever styled ─ they can be dressed up or paired with jeans and a t shirt; they check all the boxes for being the best trend there is comfort, style, silhouette, comfort, comfort, and did I mention comfort. These shoes are great if you’re just trying out this style for the first time and if it’s not I recommend buying more in various of colors. These shoes were $40 even and being that other brands like Bogetta Veneta, Raid, and Chanel all carry the same style but not the same pricing this from Cape Robbin is a definite steal.

Negative High Heel Strappy Ankle Sandal

Okay, everything that I said about high heels doesn’t apply to these heels. When it comes to heels what do you look for comfort? color? height? fit? Well to answer all those question Yes this heel has all those factors ─ and don’t let the heel height fool you, these shoes are comfortable and friendly on the arch. strappy sandals have always been a trend and as for bold ─ well just look at the shoe itself.

Camryn Transparent Vogue Block Heel ─ Mules

Clear heels have been around for a minute now, so I can say that I’m a but late to the trend ─ but now that I finally have a pair I am in LOVE! Kylie Jenner was the first person I seen with these mules by Balenciaga, right there ─ I searched high and low for these shoes, and finally I have them. I love how these shoes are snug on the foot, that means that your foot won’t be sliding against the transparent siding. I ordered these shoes in a 8.5 and it is best to buy a size up, just for fit. These came in blue, pink, and lime green and while all these colors scream summer, nude was the perfect choice.

Beaded Slide Sandal

Slides have taken over my shoe collection, and while they have been in my reach since the year started, these beaded sandals are another kinda reach. I love these sandals they are super comfortable, and easy to dress, but it adds a bit of flavor to your outfit like no other pair of slides could. The black interior makes for a chic appearance while the beads adds the glamour. I can’t wait to style these babies. Oh! they were only $25

I hoped you enjoyed this mini unboxing and also like some of the selections provided. Be sure to Like & Comment your favorite shoe trends of 2020. I recommend checking out FLashybox, and browsing there various selections of shoes for yourself. Trust I can assure you; you’re not going to want to leave empty handed.

5 Dress Trends that will have you summer ready // ft.Dresslily

Hi Lovelies,

At how many dresses do you stop and tell yourself “enough is enough” I ask this question every season and still when summer comes around, I find myself scrolling through yet another shopping rabbit hole trying to decide mini or long, body con or flair, pastel or black (Always Black) well this summer I plan to stick to these staple dress trends that will not only give variety but keep you ahead of the fashion curb.

When it comes to fashion, summer is the best time to play around with your style and since layering is not in the cards for most, staple pieces paired with some playful accessories and shades will balance out the perfect outfit for the books. Bold patterns, animal print, bright colors, polka dots, sleeveless dress, puffy sleeves, and corsets are all the rave, if you leave this post without one of these trends in mind, just remember animal print is the way.

This summer is meant to explore your sense of style and try new looks, these are just some suggestions to get started. I rounded a few shoppable looks from Dresslily, that are totally affordable and the epitome of the season’s hottest trends.

Print Dresses

Floral Leaf Ruffle Wrap Dress

Floral, animal print, polka dots, feathers, whatever the pattern printed dresses are always a must, not just for the summer but any season for that matter. I chose this floral, leaf print wrap dress, for under $30. For the summer printed dresses can be easily paired with other contrasting patterns and colors and don’t be afraid to go crazy with the boldest of accessories,shoes, and jewelry its the summer have FUN!

Lace Up Dresses

Floral Lace Skater Dress

Lace is definitely considered the “one woman show” of all patterns, many wouldn’t think to wear lace as a go-to summer print because it’s an occasional print, but bold colors and prints can change this to the perfect outfit. I recently looked at the selection of laced up dresses on the dresslily website and they have a ton to choose from, but this dress I chose is the perfect summertime dress, skater dresses are easy to dress up or down;you could wear sandals, heels, or sneakers– the thing about lace is that you can still be chic but with a hint of rebel or sass! This dress is under $40


Ruffle Hem Cinched Crop Top and Maxi Skirt

Of course floral print is the obvious choice of the summer; flowers are very colorful; and feminine giving you the option to play with lots of jewelry or no jewelry, heels or flats, statement bag or clutch, there are endless possibilities when it comes to this print. Now here’s a statement piece you’ll want in your closet This floral 2-piece is under $30 and is statement piece on it’s own, add a few pieces of jewelry and some wedged sandals = perfect instagram feed.

Dresses for Curves

Ladder Cut Open Shoulder Fitted Dress

Body con dresses are the perfect dresses to show off curves; and you can dress them up just as easy. This off the shoulder knee length dress is only $26.

Sleeveless Dresses

Sheer Embroidered Sleeveless Trapeze Dress

Sleeveless dresses are bound to be the go-to of the summer. I chose this embroidered tank dress that is under $20 now this is definitely a steal when it comes to deals. When it comes to tank dresses you can easily layer it with other items of clothing and play with this simple look and make it a show stopper, or if you’re a minimalist ( like me) you’ll wear it as is, and add some chunky sneakers & jewelry.

Style Guide to Styling swimwear// SPRING EDIT

Hi Lovelies.

Tis the season of music festivals, pool parties, and other outdoor activities! And while it is a little early to be planning what you’ll be wearing at Coachella all the while the world is in quarantine (due to the coronavirus) we are all praying that this pandemic ends; here is a little fashion inspiration to look forward to.

With the summer swiftly approaching, I am finding myself switching my jeans to shorts, and hoodies to crop tops; and while making these drastic changes in my wardrobe, I have discovered that swimsuits are the new co ord outfit for the upcoming season. I know what you’re thinking, “aren’t swimsuits for the pool?” Total misconception in fashion, swimsuits have recently took a turn for the perfect summer outfit, so while some may call it tacky I have found a few fashionable ways to style these for everyday wear. Dresslily, offers amazing swimwear at amazing prices and offers major deals on top of that!

When it comes to styling 1- piece bathing suits, there are so many selections as to what to wear, take this outfit for example; I styled this simple 1- piece with a pair of leather joggers, some chunky ankle boots ( which is in style, btw) an off the shoulder handbag, and of course, some jewels. Styling up neutrals is so much fun, because you can keep it minimalistic with adding more neutrals or pairing it with some color pieces, either way you’ll be able to take the perfect pic for Instagram.

For the second look I chose an animal print 2- piece bikini, don’t be intimidated animal print is just a bolder version of a neutral. I paired this with some faux leather shorts and a jean jacket and some sneakers; obviously this was a reference to all my festival go-ers.

Refresh your wardrobe! Shop dresslily to get the best prices on the best quality fashion for all occasions.
