In life, we're taught to never settle. Whether it's your power-tripping boss or a lacklustre boyfriend, a less-than-stellar relationship can make every day an absolute chore; I see footwear exactly the same way. Sure, shoes cover your feet and protect them from rocks, rusty nails and disapproving looks but ever more importantly, great shoes are meant to make you feel like a rockstar. And in the end, isn't that what you deserve, you rockstar you?!
Summer calls for easy, laid-back kicks that you can quickly slip on at a moment's notice. If you're looking for an update (and last year's flops have bitten the proverbial dust), the stores are full of pretty summer shoes, from chic summer sandals (including celeb-fave TKEES) to 'Sloafers' (a hybrid of slippers and loafers that have all but replaced the ballet flat) to statement-making super wedges for those seeking a lift. And since summer's in full swing, many of the season's shoes are currently on sale. Must go...the shoes are calling, "Sarahhhh...Sarahhh...take us home!" Does anyone else hear that?
