Fashionistas: Sole Mates

May 24th

Oh Kara,

When you suggested this month we cover our favorite summer footwear, I jumped with glee. As my mother can tell you, I have always had “a thing for shoes and bags.”

So, you know. I’m a woman.

Since moving to Colorado, I have a new appreciate for footwear. There is no need for the winter pedicure and peek-a-boo conservative flat. Instead, my tootsies are bundled up in wool socks and boots, or my Ugg slippers, for months at a time. Come just about now, it’s time to break out the sandals. The flats. The shoes that don’t require socks but do require a new razor to show some leg.

Say it with me: YAHOOOO!

A few of my now “summer” shoe faves:

Birk flip flops, Giza style. I LOVE these. You know I don’t mind a good heel, but dating a man who is my same height means I have a new appreciation for flats too. I’ve got these in a couple colors and wear them with skirts and jeans.

Tarjay heels. Thank you, thank you Target buyers for selling size 11s. You have made my wardrobe and pocketbook so very happy.

Clark heels that were new when I bought them at a local thrift for $8. And oh, more Tarjay shoes. I love wild flats. With bright tops, black pants and a bunch of silver jewelry. I also wear these with maxi dresses, or with a-line dresses for work. They are comfy and add just enough color to be sassy.

And of course, my very favorite summer sandal. Still love these. Still wear them whenever I get a chance. Wedge + espadrille = my favorite. That said, I’m about 6 foot a billion in these.

And let’s be honest. These are the summer kicks that get the most wear. A good pair of trail runners for the summer ahead in Colorado and I’m set.

Now, what are you wearing? Favorite place to find shoes?

    LOVE those espadrilles! I’ve been looking for a pair and just can’t seem to find what I want…where did you find those?

    I am a huge fan of the Giza Birki’s as well. I have a red & orange paisley pair that I get tons of compliments on.

  4. I love your 6′ a billion shoes and that your are 6′ a billion when you wear them. I have height envy! 🙂

  5. Love the Giza, have two pair. Even MORE, loved seeing those painted toes in person!

  6. Oh yeah – I LOVE those espadrilles. Even more so that you rock them with your gorgeous height! Tall women are even awesomer when they embrace The Tall.

    Meanwhile, I am finishing breaking in a new pair of Van’s and I am in love all over again. It’s like being a punk kid cutting class in Junior High. Makes me feel like sneaking a cigarette and kissing a boy 🙂

  7. I’m behind on your blog Kelli….and so sad that I am! However, I have a pair of Cole Haan black wedge sandals that make me 6′ a billion as well! They are one of my FAVE summer shoes however. Also, I caught the “dating a man who is my same height” comment and I had to comment “I feel ya.” They have always been men I avoided but I do adore mine. 😉 Basically I guess this comment is “Yes, me too. I completely understand.” xo

  8. I love that we both included Clarks! I also totally have those grey Target heels. We are totally on the same level 🙂

    Loved those green wedges from the second you posted them – at least a year ago? So so so cute.

    There isn’t enough room on your blog for me to talk about the shoes I love. 🙂

    You’re dating someone? 😉 How lovely!
