So I talked yesterday about how my visit to New York City gave me a little spring in my step. https://dontwearsweats.com/have-i-lost-my-edge/. That got me thinking, if I am going to be walking around like a New Yorker, I need cute Spring and Summer shoes. Spring and Summer are the seasons of cute pedicure colors, great maxi dresses, short shorts, and sundresses. Sometimes, the shoe choice is the biggest issue.
Don’t despair, because I think I found a great shoe for us all.
Now, I like to wear heels a lot, for two reasons. I think I look better taller, and I read if you walk in heels it is a good workout for your butt. The thing is, as we get into these warmer seasons, with the cute dresses and jean shorts, the heel thing could make me look like I am starting a new profession. Short shorts, high heels, walking the streets. You do the math. So I compromise, and my quest is for cute comfortable shoes with a little wedge. I think I found them.
How cute are these? Not a flip flop, not too open. Just right, Goldilocks. Check out shopbop.com for these Jeffrey Campbell sandals.
Of course, you will need a few others. I truly believe you get can through the warmer seasons with a cute neutral flip flop, a comfortable higher wedge, and a strappier open sandal for fancier occaisions.
You don’t need to spend a lot of money on these choices. There are so many options out there. So get a pedicure, pick a bright color polish, and start the search. Nothing like a new pair of shoes to put a special spring in your step.
