Dear Fashionistas,

I am still obsessed with "naked" color shoes this year!  Is it wrong to love a shoe that gives the magical appearance of legs as long as a giraffe?  I think not.  The color blends with your natural color of skin (on some skin tones) to give the look of elongating your leg.

The color also allows your colorful ensemb to "pop"!  If you want to wear a really vibrant dress and make it stand out, nude shoes polish it off.  Or wear nude shoes instead of black so that the focus is on your dress and not your shoes.  Nude is also a classic shoe that will never go out of style so you don't have to feel a bit of remorse if you are buying designer.  Your safe!

I have picked a few sandals that I just adore.  I know it is a bit early for spring in Chicago, but why not get your sandals now? When it is warm enough, you are ready to step into spring with style.

I apologize for shopping most of the shoes at Nordstrom but the shoe department just can't be beat.

1. BP Kenna Sandal at Nordstrom. I love the satin straps.  The description suggested pairing it with evening wear but even a pair of great flair jeans with a simple flutter top would be divine. Or to show off your elongated legs, wear a day dress to scroll along Rush Street. 

2. Kate Spade at Nordstrom. This lavish strappy sandal with the satin bloom oozes femininity. I want to wear it with cute fitted white shorts or skirt with a pinkish color tank or even a neat black tank with a twist.

3. Glint Kathryn Sandal at Nordstrom.  Enjoy these leather shoes with the braided cut-out shape to give it a modern flair. The heel is approximately "4.  Wear these with absolutely everything.

4. Ivanka Trump at Nordstrom.  Ivanka Trump has a newly created shoe collection with an incredible price range. I am crazy about Ivanka shoes!  These flats are on my list to buy for hanging at the beach this summer.

5. Burberry at Bloomingdales. Remember jelly shoes?  Hated them! But check out these modern cute T-Strap Jellies from Burberry.  Cute heart accessory attached for a bit of fun.

6. Lanvin at Barneys New York. Barneys on Oak Street has an amazing shoe collection also.  In love with these satin flower and grosgrain trim sandal.  I guess I like the accessories attached to the shoes this year.  It adds a bit of pizzaz and in this case, a feminine touch.  

Ta Ta,


  1. ALL IN!

  2. FABULOUS! Love how you are doin things up! :-)

  3. Just bought my first pair of nude pumps late last summer. I LOVE THEM. I wish I could wear them all the time.
    I may have to consider some sandals now too:)
