The {Sexy} Sandal|Blazer Duo

A few months ago I had been trying to find a reasonably priced, “lace up” heel and when I finally found (and bought) the shoe, I could BARELY walk in them…Barely is an understatement. I walked like a 5-year-old wearing her mom’s 6-inch, leather stilettos.  Yeah, that image is not so cute when you’re 24. I was about to give up the hunt until I eyed a pair at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. I was skeptical, but when I tried them on they were not only easy to walk in, the sole was like a little, squishy, down pillow (like the ones you want to steal from a fancy hotel)! Now you get me? After I made my happy purchase, I started rifling through my closet for some styling inspiration. Just kidding, I stalked Kim Kardashian’s instagram; she wears these types of shoes like a normal person wears sneakers. In the end, I feel pretty good, confident and (for once) sexy when I wear this fun duo. That’s what style is all about, outward expression. If you look good, you feel good♥. Remember (***) for items from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. Scroll down↓ for more info.
