Mid-heeled Sandals: Your go-to warm weather shoe!

Coming off of an amazing week in warm weather Orlando, FL it was such a shock to come back to yet another Chicago winter.  Legit feels as if Chicago only has one long winter with an occasional break in the sky with a little sun for good measure.

So while the weather is still iffy, I can’t help but still go through the motions with transitioning into a summer wardrobe.  For summer, my go-to shoe is the mid-heeled sandal.  Why? Simple, they are not flat and aren’t too high.  The flat sandal only equals dirty feet and to mix dirt with sweat is not a great combo and is not exactly the added benefit I look forward too in a show.  Now, I know a lot of you are wondering well why are high heels out?  Two words: swollen & hurt.  High heels are amazing but to be on your feet all day or to wear a pair of sandals for a full work day, they are out of the question.

And don’t try to talk to me about wedges. They’re marketed as the safer alternative to high heels but the only times I’ve taken a Amy Poehler style stumble is while I was wearing wedge shoes.

Enter in the blocky, mid-heeled sandal.  Marni, Prada and Peter Pilotto have always been keen on them in their fashion.  So I’m taking a cue from these ultra chic designers and making the mid-heeled sandal my summer shoe staple.  You joining the mid-heeled crew?

P.S. here are 4 of the best mid-heeled sandals:

Splurge vs. Save: Scarf Print Dress!

Givenchy’s 2013 Resort collection is the signature collection where Riccardo Tisci takes bohemian inspired scarf prints and infuses a distinct graphic element that sky rockets the print trend in a whole different direction.  While no one can ever truly emulate Tisci’s distinct graphic scarf prints, ASOS makes an attempt to provide a very compelling inspired piece.

What do you think, Splurge or Save?
