A summer shoe can be hard to find. After all, a pair that looks as great in an office as it does on a boardwalk is no easy capture. What’s a stylish girl to do? Follow Lauren‘s lead and head to to your local Goodwill for this week’s Goodwill Gem: Plum Perfection Peep-toe Pumps!
This week’s find is a fantastic pair of summer wedges that have a little bit of everything. The natural, woven straw bottoms are topped with a rich mahogany-colored, strappy leather upper.
The peep toe and t-strap styling are reminiscent of an earlier era, adding a bit of 1940s feminine glamor to a warm-weather look with a modern, casual flair. In their natural materials and colors, these sky-high wedges are the perfect way to top off any breezy, summer ensemble.
Now… how to wear ’em?
A short, simple summer dress is exactly the kind of thing that’s easy to throw on with my fabulous new find and run right out the door. The dress’s neutral color scheme echoes the shoes, but the bold, graphic pattern and cut-out detail on the shoulders takes this summery look into the wild.
But if you’re looking for more ways to wear these darling high-heeled sandals, think of throwing them on with a smart pair of cropped, tailored trousers in a bright hue and a clean, classic white silk blouse or tank. Add a fabulous, floppy straw hat and a pair of big, movie star-style shades for an ultra-polished summer look. Hope you can sprint in those wedges, though – the paparazzi may just come after you!
