It isn't often that I wear actual shoes during the summer. Most days I just lounge around in footwear that's easy to toss on and off: sandals, wedges, maybe a pair of espadrille slip-ons. Easy-going pieces that take me from brunch to beach to bar...
So when Nine West asked me to style their Splash pointy toe booties for the season it was a welcome change of pace. I love that from the front they look like your standard ankle boot, while the back combines a slingback closure with a stiletto heel to create a sleek, cut-out shape. I knew these would require a step up from my usual summer uniform (ie. cutoff shorts) and a new business lunch with clients seemed like the perfect chance to break them in. I wound up pairing them with some fun striped shorts, a textured tee and a casual knit blazer to create a sophisticated workweek look with a little bit of edge.
How do you like the combo? And how would you wear them?
