Now that my finals week has wrapped up, I have to admit that it is actually (technically) summer! That's hard to believe when we're barely into May, but I did go ahead and buy a couple new pairs of shorts and (of course) some new shoes for the season! Read on for the new additions...
I've been looking for some new black heels for a while, so I was happy to see these pop up in Ann Taylor's final sale. The combo of suede and polished leather is fun, as are the little cut-outs. I can attest to the comfort of these shoes. I wore them all day on Wednesday and they only started hurting at the very end of my day (that was after 5 1/2 hours of college commencement, including 45 minutes of walking to my car, which I consider to be a reasonable amount of pain to endure if you're wearing heels). I don't see this exact shoe on the website anymore, but they were still available in our local store the last time I checked. Here's the same style in a fun orange texture.
Since I was feeling the consequences of walking in heels for 13 hours the day before, on Thursday I dressed down and wore these sandals (also available in pink/orange, silver, brown, and cork). They are a good way to introduce a little color through the neon yellow strap.
And last, I got these beige flats with neon toes. The other options were pink (which I would have purchased, but they were sold out in my size), yellow, or basic black. I envision getting a lot of use out of these as well, since blue is one of my favorite colors. I've noticed a few of my favorite bloggers wearing these as well, and they are a fun way to introduce a trend into a work-appropriate outfit. If you like these, check your local store since they are marked down lower in the store than online.
What about you? Have you started shopping to fill out your summer wardrobe yet?
