Shoe Week: One Last Summer Shoe

May 17, 2024

It’s been a fun week talking about shoes. A former co-worker texted me yesterday and asked what shoe I would buy, if I were only going to buy one shoe for summer. And, of course, I told her that I have two suggestions.

Her response: “Typical.”

Your perfect summer shoe depends on your lifestyle.  Do you go into the office?  Do you stay home?  But for me, the biggest shoe decision making question of summer is: Do you want a trendy shoe or a classic?

Espadrilles are the hot shoe of summer.  These raffia-accented shoes are everywhere right now.  This pair from Franco Sarto come in several color ways.  They also come in wide widths.  Plus, the 3.75″ wedge with a 1″ platform is surprisingly easy to walk around in.

Nordstrom has a sizable selection of espadrilles for summer; lots of great styles.  If you like the look, but you need less height, I loved these mini-wedges from Me Too.  The black pair would look great with cotton sundresses.

For my money, however, I want something that isn’t so tightly tethered to a single season.  I need a shoe that can be worn in April and September, as well as July.  These LK Bennett Bianca sandals have enough of a closed toe look that I can wear them to the office or to brunch.  I also really like the soft gold color, but they also come in beige.

LK Bennett’s shoes are not cheap, but they last.  This pair is currently on sale, so I would snap them up for 30% off.

    I just got the LK Bennett sandals in gold and they are SO comfortable. The leather is really, really soft.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
