I am currently slightly obsessed with this Summer's fashion trend of pom poms & tassels. You see them all over the style blogs and Instagram. Aren't they just so much fun! These fun pom heels were inspired by the Aquazzura designs but I created them for a fraction of the price. Lets face it, this is definitely a fashion trend that I don't think will be around for a while, so why not save your coins and DIY your own. What I love about DIY projects is that you truly can make it your own.
Follow the instructions below & you can create your own fun & festive pom pom heels for this Summer & even into early Fall.
Step 1: Shop for the Supplies to complete project:
E6000 Adhesive - Purchased from Hobby Lobby or any craft store - this is an option that will take more time because the glue has to become tacky before the poms will stay in place.
Assorted bags of Pom Pom - Michaels & Hobby Lobby
Selecting my color combinations were the hardest part because the possibilities are endless.
I hit the jackpot with finding my white sandals because they were on clearance at Target for $11.48. You want to make sure if you recreate this look that you find the sandals with the removable ankle strap so that you can replace it with another ankle tie.
After you've decided on your color combinations with your pom poms its time to start placing them on the shoe. For me it was easier to start in the center of the shoe and work my way to each side.
White Pom Pom Heels are perfect for summer styles & so much fun! Add additional tassels if desired.
Black suede braided strap replaced the leather shoe ankle strap
Michaels Craft Store & it was on clearance!
Voila! Super sexy summer heel that can take you into early Fall for special events!
Super easy DIY and very on trend for the Summer. In total with shoes and supplies it was a $22.00 investment. The black pom pom heels were about $16 total because I scored the shoes on clearance also! Do you love to DIY? What are some things you've created this summer? Share in the comments below!

Cold Shoulder Blouse & Dresses - Shoulder baring style pieces are in just about every store this Spring. In my professional opinion its not a style that everyone can pull off however if you can, they look good!
Jumpers & Rompers - One of my personal favorites simply for the versatility. Rompers can be rocked with heels and even sneakers for a casual weekend style.
Lightweight Utility Jacket- I love the military inspiration with these jackets and they are simple to dress up or down to create a variety of looks.

As a southern girl...aka Kentucky native I am very much aware of the importance of the Kentucky Derby and now a Nashville resident Iroquois Steeplechase. Lets face it the premise is the horse race but to everyone else it is also about the fashion, hats, mint juleps & the bloody mary. I have watched "Derby" grow over the years with the celebrity events and parties but it always comes full circle with the hats/fascinators.
As a Stylist I love the southern fashions of Derby & Steeplechase but I would always advise Clients to stay simple on the attire if you are going bold with your hat or fascinator. By simple I mean a classic sheath dress or monochromatic looks in order to allow your hat to be a statement piece.
Sharing a few of my favorite hat styles, comment below to let me know your favorite. Also be sure to check out the collections of Arturo Rios...they are amazing. Are you attending the Kentucky Derby or Steeplechase in Nashville? If so share the look you are going for this year!
