I did it! I finally pulled the trigger and bought these shoes!! They went on sale last week to under $100, and I could not resist! I originally thought I was going to order either the beige or red ones, but I ended up going with the yellow. I LOVE these shoes! When picking a color I decided on yellow because I thought it was fun and different. I mean if I am going to by fun fringe sandals, why not buy them in a fun color too!
I wore almost this exact outfit to a blogger brunch this weekend, but I wore this black top. I was able to test out these shoes, so I can give you an early review. When I first put them on, they were a bit different to walk in. They reminded me a bit of mule feel. I did realize that it helps to tie the laces a little tighter to give you more support, and it makes it easier to walk. When I first tied them, one was looser and I could really tell a difference. By the end of the brunch and after walking around in them a bit more, I did find it easier to walk. I don’t own many shoes in this style, so I think I just needed to adjust to it.
I ordered my normal size on these, and they fit perfectly! You can tie the fringe tassels to be either front or back. Don’t worry these babies will be on the blog plenty over the next few months, so you will get to see them tied to the front too. I really like them both ways, but I do think tied front is cuter. I tied them front for the brunch and really liked how it peeked out of the jeans.
I just wrote a whole lot about just a pair of shoes! 🙂 For the rest of this outfit, I went pretty neutral with my top and bottom because I really wanted my shoes to stand out. I love mixing colors, and I love how the yellow looks with the maroon and purple of my jewelry. One of the reasons I opted for yellow is because of all the color mixing options. I can picture these shoes with bright neon type colors this summer and jewel tones for early fall.
I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! In addition to my blogger brunch, I started Spring cleaning my closet. I made some really good progress and re-organized it a bit. I still have more work to do, but I love how it is coming along! Is anyone else planning a big spring cleaning project this year??
