Zara Platform Ankle-Strap Sandals / $79.90
Is it summer yet? No? With the weather we're having right now it surely feels like it— the thermometer says 60º but it feels so much warmer. Although we do have only a week until Spring, I'm starting to get a bit antsy. With warmer weather comes plenty of open-toed footwear and although I do love me some shoes, I find it hard to find pairs I love and can afford, hah.
My tastes are changing a lot as of late; think Cher Horowitz meets Françoise Hardy and a bit of Ena Matsumoto. I'm kind of all over the place in a good way and experimenting with things I may not normally go for. With that said, these shoes are the epitome of my being, seriously. They've got all of the elements I look for in a summer shoe: chunky, airy, light, strappy. They'll go with basically anything too; from shorts to flowing sheer skirts, I'm going to get a lot of use out of these puppies. Have I mentioned that they're also extremely easy to walk in? It's why I love platforms — you get the height you want but with a lot less pain and torture than with a pair of stilettos. Win win! I definitely recommend them if you're looking for a cute summer shoe. If you're more into wedges, these are a super cute alternative. Also, I should point out that I'm normally a size 7 but a 6.5 proved to be perfect!
It might be taking me a while but I'm slowly curating my dream wardrobe — learning that it's more about quality than quantity for sure. What do you guys think of these? What are some must-have staples in your closets?
