New York got 19 inches of snow the other day. In related news, I spent this afternoon in my parents’ backyard enjoying the 75° weather here in Los Angeles.
In honor of yet another beautiful day here in Southern California, today’s Friday Feets theme is …
Open toes, flip flops without any traction, perforated leather … definitely not practical for snowy weather. These brightly colored shoes are perfect for this mid-winter summer we’re having here in LA. They make me want to buy a cotton sundress and ride a bicycle through the countryside. Essentially, they make me want to dress like Blair from the season 2 premiere of Gossip Girl.
You definitely shouldn’t wear expensive sandals in three day old slush. I’ll be honest, I don’t understand why those YSL heels cost $795 – I’m pretty sure Jessica Simpson could knock those off for $135 – but they’re definitely cute.
Blushes and nudes are popping up all over the place. I wouldn’t normally go for a neutral shoe (other than my beloved Platswoons, of course), but they definitely fall into the category of “shoes you don’t want to wear in grey New York snow.” I actually like the blush when paired with black – I’m having a hard time resisting the siren song of the Jessica Simpson heels. If I could wear flouncy dresses, I’d definitely wear the heels with one.
I am loving Dolce Vita’s line for Target – at least, I’m loving it in theory. I’m reserving my final opinion until I can see them in person and make sure that the faux leather isn’t too pleathery. My biggest problem with espadrilles is that I have a rough time walking in them (I twisted my ankle last time I wore them). I don’t know why it’s so much harder for me to balance in espadrilles than run of the mill stilettos, but I guess that’s just another thing that makes me the unique spazzball that I am.
Okay, it’s been a long day and I desperately need some sushi and maybe some Yogurtland. Have a good weekend guys, and thanks for reading!
