Alice + OIivia polka dot ‘Jenna’ wedges, $295

I’ve spoken frequently about my love of polka dots, and I’m also a big fan of Alice + Olivia, so I’m sure it’ll come as no surprise to anyone to see these ‘Jenna’ wedges popping up as Shoe of the Day.

These are a really fun style for summer, and I particularly like the “black on white” print, which is a little more summery than the reverse can be. With that said, I do think they could be a little tough to style: the print is bold and the wedge is chunky, which means these are shoes which will draw the eye straight to your feet. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, obviously – if you’re wearing cute shoes, you probably want people to notice them, after all – but it could also make your outfit a little unbalanced if you’re not careful. Big, bold shoes also have the effect of making the feet look larger, so if that bothers you, it’s something else to be aware of.

If you like the print, but not the wedge, however, the brand also have this espadrille version:

And if you don’t like the print either, how about these two new versions of last year’s ‘Gigi’ peep toes?

I have the heart print version of these shoes from last year, and they’re one of my favourite pairs in my collection. I don’t like either of these prints quite as much, but they’re still cute shoes, and the map print version is something a little bit different, at least.

Also from the current Alice + Olivia collection:

I love the shape and print of this black and silver stripe dress: if it was just a few inches longer, I’d be seriously drooling over it! As it is, it’s too short for me – but could be perfect on you!
