My Favorite Top 11 Spring + Summer Sandals, Slides & Shoes at Benjamin Lovell

I am so excited to share with you a fun little project I was working on the week with my friends at Benjamin Lovell in Philadelphia.

I’ve partnered with Benjamin Lovell Shoes before – in the Fall, sharing my Boot + Bootie Picks – as well as when I worked with Earth Brands in store as well. I’m not going to lie, working with shoe brands and shoe stores for the blog might be my favorite.

I’m COMPLETELY a Shoe Gal over here. So the opportunity to focus on an entire blog post – I’m IN!

I love being able to partner with my friends at Benjamin Lovell Shoes because of the wonderful experience shopping there. The staff is always so helpful and lovely – and I always find new + amazing shoe brands that I’ve never seen anywhere else. It’s always a treat!

There are SO MANY shoes + styles + colors to choose from in the Benjamin Lovell selection. But I did my best to narrow it down to my Top 10 picks for the season {give or take a few} I kept things neutral and I’m excited to share with you what I found and what I loved.

#1 – Birkenstock “Arizona” in Copper Leather

As soon as I saw these Copper Leather Arizona Birks I knew they had to be on my list. I have had my eye on them since they were released in all their rose gold beauty last year. They are so comfortable and I love how Birkenstocks are having a moment right now – I’ve got a few pairs and I love them all – add in some Copper Leather and they are pretty much perfection.

Do you love them as much as I do?

#2 – Pikolinos “Alcudia” Lace Up Sandal in Stone

I was IMMEDIATELY drawn to these lace up sandals in the store. I’m a massive Pikolinos fan – I literally want every one of their shoes out now – and I love the look and style of these so I had to try them on. They fit like a dream, are super cute with pants, shorts or a dress and come in a few amazing colors. Love.

#3 – Earth Shoes Ivy Sahara in Coco

Having worked with Earth Shoes a bunch in the past, I’m already a fan. When I saw these block heel booties on the shelf, I knew I had to give them a try! They are beyond comfortable and the incredible detail, heel and buckle makes it a super stylish shoe. These are great for ANYTHING!

#4 – Taos Trulie Wedge Sandal in Golden Yellow

I totally wish there were more mustard yellow sandals out there at the moment because I LOVE this color so much. These wedge sandals are so comfortable and come in A MASSIVE selection {23!!} of colors to choose from. This was my first time trying Taos footwear in a sandal and it did not disappoint. I also love the weaving detail on the straps and the slightly wedged footbed is different than most others out there – I really liked it!

#5 – Pikolinos “Mykonos” Platform Sandal in Stone

These were one of the last sandals I tried on, and I’m really glad I did. I’m usually not one for a platform sandal, but the leather on these is so dreamy, it felt amazing to wear! In true Pikolino style, I love the fit and the look – the detail of the corked footbed and tan back strap only make the shoe even cuter!

#6 – OluKai “Pehuea” Slip on Sneaker in Tapa

OluKai is a completely new brand to me, and I’m so glad my friends at Benjamin Lovell introduced it to me! This slip on sneaker is different because of the incredible fabric – it’s super breathable and casual chic! I love that you can wear it as a sneaker or a slip on shoe {as the heel bends down for an easy slide on!} It comes in a bunch of beautiful colors, but I love the neutrality of the Tava for summer! Love these!

#7 – Aetrex “Hailey” Studded Sandal in Deep Taupe

Another completely new to me brand – Aetrex! These studded sandals were so much fun to try on. I loved the deep taupe color – a little grayish purple, but still completely neutral for everyday wear. Also the suede and the studs elevated these sandals a bit, which I liked! These also have amazing arch support and the straps are completely adjustable too.

#8 – Wirth “Coast” Python Slide in Nude

Yet ANOTHER completely new {to me} brand. These are a classic slide silhouette that – if you can believe it – I don’t own anything like it in my closet. I love the look and the python detail gives it a little extra visual interest. Not to mention the Italian leather is BEYOND.

#9 – Pikolinos “Jerez” Skimmer Flat in Brandy

The attention to detail on these shoes is incredible. The stitching and the design are so unique. I love the look and the easy style – they come in a variety of neutral colors too. I originally wanted to try on the Champagne Leather, which is more of a gold, but they didn’t have my size – and I really like the brandy color shown. What do you think about these?

#10 – Pikolinos “Santorini” Laceless Oxfords in Brandy

Another shoe, another Pikolino.

I told you I loved them. It was actually hard NOT to do the entire post of just Pikolinos. Because they are that good.

These laceless oxfords aren’t as spring + summery as the other sandals shown. I even posted about them before in my previous Benjamin Lovell visit this past Fall {in a different color} – but they are so good, I’ve kept coming back to them. They are so comfortable, like walking on a cloud {seriously} and they are an amazing transitional shoe between the seasons, another reason why I love them.

#11 – Wirth “Hispanita” in Tan/White

Another Wirth style because I thought these were so cute – I can see them being worn with all the summer dresses and they would still be so cute with shorts or jeans! They are very comfortable and the leather is so gorgeous. These scream summer, but they come in a really fun black + metallic option as well!

So what shoe did I go home with?! Well, it happened to be a style I loved in a color I didn’t previously show you!

I went with the Pikolinos “Alcudia” Lace Up Sandal in Coral!

I fell in love with this little beauty in the gold/stone color – but my heart went soaring when I saw the red. The gold was amazing and neutral but I am loving the classic red color pop in these shoes. Plus, I’m wearing lots of grey, white + black these days {as shown in this photo!} so it’s easy to wear with all of that – but for the record, I wouldn’t normally wear the red with the green vest.

The metallic is amazing, I’m still dreaming about them and might have to keep an eye on them if they go on sale, because they were beautiful – but I fell hard for the detail in the red + coral color.

Maybe it’s a Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz thing – And Her Little Red Shoes Too. What can I say – I love a theme!

So there you have it – my Top 11 favorites and the ones I went home with! I can’t wait to wear these all Spring + Summer long – you can bet I will be styling them all the time, so be prepared to see a ton of them!

A huge thank you to my friends at Benjamin Lovell for having me in store, for introducing me to some incredible new shoe brands and for my new red shoes – I love them so!

Now I’d love to hear what shoes you are loving from my Top Picks – Are any of these brands your favorite? Which shoe style did you like best?!
