Beach to Bar Style ft. Bussola

When you are heading on holiday, the last thing you want is to stuff enough shoes into your luggage to be over the limit.

When it comes to shoes, I’m all for ‘the more the merrier’, but unfortunately, they weigh approximately the same as a baby elephant when it comes to that dreaded check-in travel desk.

Wedge sandals are a versatile, beach-ready style that can be paired with practically everything in your vacation wardrobe.

Today I style Bussola’s* wedge sandals for the beach and for the bar.


Styling Wedge Sandals For The Beach

No matter how many squats you torture yourself through, it can be hard to feel 100% comfortable showing off your pins on the beach.

Wedge heels are a fantastic way to elongate and slim out the legs, without looking like some sort of uncoordinated newborn baby giraffe.

These Bussola wedge heels are a comfy and cute way to add instant height to your beach bod. The shoes were designed with the traveller in mind and their lightweight and durable design makes them perfect for throwing in your suitcase for your travels.

Best of all, they have been given a cheeky antibacterial mildew treatment, meaning that sandy feet and salty toes won’t make them smell like the cheese you forgot you had in the back of the fridge.

For my beach look, I styled the wedge heels with my vintage Levis jeans and this cheeky off-shoulder crop top.

Anyone who has ever vacationed to exotic climes will know that some surfaces aren’t exactly high heel friendly. **Cue images of stilettos in Italian cobblestones & slingbacks breaking on uneven Thailand pavements**

The wedge heel is a fabulous option for exploring on an evening, or heading out for holiday dinner or drinks.

Opt for a neutral, beige pair and you have a comfy heel to be worn with every single cute dress in your wardrobe. Boom!

Exhibit A: These Bussola babies above.

This stunning lace Pilgrim dress was given a resort-style makeover when paired with the wedge heel. I added this mermaid-goals handbag to further add to the beach-y vibe.

What is your ultimate pair of travel shoes?

  14. I love wedges! They are the most comfortable heel to walk in.MY go to travel shoes are usually booties/flats/or sandals. Depending on where I am going. Usually booties though! Your photo backdrops are always amazing! xoxo

    Your vintage Levis cutoffs look fabulous paired with that pretty off-shoulder crop top as a beach outfit, and the lace Pilgrim dress is a pretty choice as well. You look great in both outfits.
