Tuesday Shoesday: Bold Buckles

Michael Kors Calder Ankle Strap Pump

Normally I don’t like chunky ankle straps because I feel that thinner ones accentuate the leg much better, but this particular pair of heels by Michael Kors captured my heart. The silhouette is very simple, but the bold buckle really makes the shoe speak volumes. The peep toe detail is a nice touch because it balances the heaviness of the ankle strap. These amazing shoes are a bit out of my budget, but I’ll be watching for a sale. I came across these at Macy’s in Center City, but you can also find them at Dillard’s.

Tuesday Shoesday: Sharp Soles

Casadei Blade Pump

I love to pair these stunning Casadei pumps with bright colors and sleek accessories. This pair was my first dip into high-end footwear. They came into my possession about two years ago when I won RueLaLa’s super fun ShoeLaLa competition with a photo of my favorite MK sandals. I’ve bought and sold many shoes since then, but these aren’t going anywhere anytime soon! I usually go for shoes with four or five inch heels, but I chose the lower version of the Blade pump because I wanted to wear them comfortably. Definitely one of the more sensible choices I made!

Tuesday Shoesday: Minimalist

Express Runway Sandal Ankle Strap

These incredibly simple sandals have become my absolute favorite! I ordered these from Express on a whim because they were having a 40% off sale, and I’m so glad that I did! The minimalist silhouette is extremely versatile, and so comfortable that I find myself wanting to wear them almost every day. These sandals go great with everything from jeans to dresses! Just recently, Express released the sandals again in tan leather and red suede; I’m dying to get them in the other colors. I tried on a 7 in stores and they’re way too big, but I’ll cross my fingers and hope Express will make them in half sizes again.
