It’s blistering hot in Southern Europe during August and September. Women all over were wearing their cute summer gear with of course… sandals . A few trends that I saw consistently were ankle cuffs,  gladiator sandals, clog sandals, and lots of bead work, studs, and rhinestones. Here are some sandals I pictured in Greece and Spain.

I love this sandal in Greece. The turquois beads  and rhinestones with chocolate leather is so beautiful and tastefully combined!

It's hard to see the back part of the sandal but  I loved the multiple strap toe strap detail as well as the multiple thin strap across the vamp.

Studs- I noticed a lot more nickel/silver stud details rather than gold or antique brass, especially for Fall.

I found this amazing jewelery designer in Greece who makes amazing bracelets and necklaces out of nylon thread which she knots and twists into beautiful works of art.
