Lucy,loosie

Sandal heels have become my best friends. Where do I begin when explaining my love for them. The delicate 'lady-like' vibe they project is what draws me in. I used to be really into chunky platform heels, but I started to hate the way they made me feel like some kind of Goliath causing a noisy ruckus where ever she places her feet. I'm not sure I like people hearing me coming from five blocks away. Thus, my dainty sandal obsession was born. The b&w beauties are the Tryst pumps from Nasty Gal. I'm swooning over the four alternating b&w braids that go around the ankle. The other two beauties are from Zara. Both the black and the light tan pair are going to be my go to sandals this Spring. There is nothing they won't go with. My ankles are pretty skinny, so the LT pair is a bit loose in that area. I still have yet to figure out if they can be tightened. Unfortunately I looked on Zara.com and they're both sold out, which is crazy considering I got them just last week. Good shoes go fast! But don't you worry; I scoped out an almost identical version of the black leather sandals right here, and a less then identical version of the light tan sandals here.
Started playing dress-up for a little bit to see how my black sandals looked on.
Wearing Zara pants (very old season) and H&M button-up

Side note: I reached over 10,000 page views! Now I know that may not seem like a lot to you all, but I truly feel that if I don't appreciate all of my accomplishments, even the small ones, I will never truly understand what it means to be successful. I pretty much neglected this blog during the first year I started it, but now I'm finally giving it the attention it deserves.
