I love the natural thing S/S 2012 shoes have got going on right now. I’d make a trend report on it but there are just too many gorgeous shoes to fit in just one post and each one really deserves to be featured on its own.
The shoe that’s getting its own post today is this ‘Drysi’ sandal from Penny Loves Kenny, a shoe label that we know to be super girly here on YNS. Nothing wrong with that but they did turn down the girliness a notch for this ‘Drysi’ sandal. The end effect is something more natural and more earthy but still something that’s still very pretty:

Aside from striped canvas, the braided straps and the whipstitch details that contribute to its nature-inspired looks, this ‘Drysi’ sandal is also rocking rolled straps which is yet another blooming trend this spring/summer. I love how the suede pulls this shoe together and keeps it from being too earthy. I also love how they didn’t forget the sole and added that beautiful flower drawing on the bottom.
Penny Loves Kenny didn’t totally give up their ultra-feminine aesthetic for this shoe though and you can see that in these other brighter and more fun colors of the ‘Drysi’ sandal:
