the study of blue suede & metallic strappy sandals

Navy blue suede sandals with silvery metallic accents, by Seychelles

I tried these lovely suede heels on last fall and fell in-love immediately.  I initially thought of the as more of a “wintery” shoe, what with the suede and the metallic and all.  But I was quite pleased to pull them out for a summery ensemble!  I am more and more convinced that with the exception of snowboots and flip-flops, most other shoes don’t have any rules about what season you should or should not wear them.

This is one of my go-to dresses, it’s jersey so it travels well, is appropriate for pretty much any situation, and the graphic navy-and-white print is a fantastic base for a dozen different color combinations!  Turquoise and magenta?  Yes please!

See me trying to pile on the fun jewelry?  I bought the ring from a beach-vendor in Mazatlan, Mexico last Christmas, and the bracelets have been accumulated from a variety of x-boyfriends, gifts, travels, and shopping trips.
