7 Pretty Pumps for Hot Summer Days ...

By Paula

When it comes to footwear, nothing is more feminine (or more practical) than a pair of pretty pumps - although what we in Britain call pumps, you may refer to as flats. Great for shopping, work or a day at the park, there are some really pretty colored and patterned pumps around for spring/summer 2014 that will look gorgeous with all your favorite summer dresses (they also look great with skinny jeans)! Check out your local stores and online for some real bargains, as you will often find that pretty pumps are some of the most inexpensive shoes, which means you can afford to splurge on lots of different styles! Here are just 7 of my favorites...

1 Office Les Ballet Shoes

Office Les Ballet Shoes These cute as a button pretty pumps from Office come in jade green suede. They are perfect with tanned pins and your favorite skirt during the summer months. I love them!

2 Hush Puppies Janessa Floral Pumps

Hush Puppies Janessa Floral Pumps These pumps are exclusive to Schuh, although you may be lucky enough to find a pair on eBay! I love the gorgeous floral print, which is so pretty for summer. Because they're Hush Puppies, they're comfortable enough to wear all day long!

3 Vixen Slingback Pointed Shoes

Vixen Slingback Pointed Shoes These pale turquoise leather look pumps from Topshop are stunning for summer. They'll look gorgeous with skinny jeans and a floaty top on cooler days, or a pretty summer dress when the temperature rises. I love the pale blue/green color and the slingback style!

4 Vibrant Patent Ballerinas

Vibrant Patent Ballerinas If you're looking for a pretty pair of pumps for everyday, this patent coral pair from Topshop is perfect. Smart enough for more relaxed workplaces, they also look great with jeans and your favorite top. The coral color ensures you'll be on trend throughout the summer!

5 Sweet Little Love Song Flat

Sweet Little Love Song Flat These pumps from Modcloth are just too cute for words! From their pale lilac color to their sweet little birdie design and bow heel, they're perfect for summer and I absolutely love them! I would team these with a fairly simple outfit, such as skinny jeans and a blouse, to keep the emphasis on these gorgeous shoes!

6 Doodle Black Scalloped Flat

Doodle Black Scalloped Flat If you're looking for slightly more sober flats to wear to the office, this pretty pair is perfect. The pretty scalloped edge adds a feminine, summery touch whilst the gold metal detailing keeps your look smart. These pumps are a great way to smarten up a shift dress or skinny trousers.

7 Oasis Pink Suede Point Flat Shoes

Are you a fan of pumps or do you prefer sandals when it gets hot outside? I love pretty ballerina pumps for work and play, and I love how they can take you from a day's work at the office to a night out with the girls - they're so versatile and so comfortable too! This season there are loads of great colors and designs around to choose from, so you can make your pumps the focus of your outfit or co-ordinate them with your bag or dress! From polka dot pretties to blue suede beauties, I'd love to hear all about your can't-live-without-them pair of pumps!
