As my time in Mexico comes to an end, it would be far too easy for me to curl up into a ball (of stress) and wait for it all to be over. To counter that urge, I’m trying to keep myself balanced by reminding myself of the things to which I’m looking forward to…like shoes, both the ones I stored away and those I’ve yet to buy. I begrudgingly transitioned to only wearing flats, and I look forward to the days ahead of heels, heels, and more heels.
What better way to start the summer in a new city than with the perfect pair of neutral platform sandals? The wooden heel and gold grommets of this pair stole my heart, not to mention that the color would perfectly compliment my tan. Given that these would work with everything from wide leg jeans to light summer dresses, I think they’d pass my price-per-wear test with flying colors. And, speaking of colors, I decided to build a look around these shoes that reflected one of my favorite trends of this season: color blocking. With a bright pairing of a berry hued skirt and an orange tank, neutral accessories effortlessly anchor the look.
