Shoe Showdown

True or false: I may have gone overboard on the shoe shopping this weekend.

If you guessed true, you are correct! Your prize is... nothing, since all of my money has gone to footwear in the past few days. And when I say a few days, I mean a few days - I bought five pairs of shoes in the past week!

In my defense, I got great deals on all of them and they're all shoes I see myself wearing all spring and summer long. So really it's like I did myself a favor! Second true or false: I can talk myself into anything :)

Here are the pups that made their way home with me. Welcome to my closet, new friends!

Every year I like to invest in a well-made statement sandal that I can wear all summer. Ordinarily I wouldn't spend this much on a shoe but I make an exception for summer sandals because I need something that's super well-made to hold up to long days and nights full of beaches, barbecues, vacations, etc. Over the weekend, Bloomingdales had their Friends & Family sale and I scored these babies for 25% off, plus I had a giftcard! I love the color of the caramel leather and the shiny gold studs. 

Last year, I missed out on Mara Hoffman's shoe collaboration with Soludos because of stupid NO SHOPPING MAY and I was quite upset. I wasn't gonna miss out again so when I got an email announcing their new collab with Havianas I was super pumped! I seriously love all four colors/patterns and had a hard time deciding, but in the end I went with navy. I have some fun trips coming up - Vegas, Scottsdale, Tucson, OH AND OUR HONEYMOON - I can't wait to wear them!

I have always, always, ALWAYS said that when you find something you really love, to buy it in multiple colors. After I couldn't stop thinking about these Jeffrey Campbell espadrilles after blogging about them a few weeks ago, I bit the bullet and bought them - and no joke, have not taken them off my feet since! They are so comfortable it's ridiculous - they add a little edge and sass to all my girly outfits and I just had to have another pair. Enter the leopard ones - aren't they sassy? I am OBSESSED. If you are in the market for a classic, cool pair of espadrilles, THESE are the ones!

Behold, what will be my fancy summer go-to shoe. A classic beige suede Tory Burch platform with a twist - the wedge is more flat than angled, making them INCREDIBLY comfortable. Here's a fun fact that will come as a surprise to absolutely no one: my mother bought them too in the exact same color. Look for us strolling around LA in our matching ensembles this summer :) #thankyoubloomiesfriendsandfamily

What do you think? Ya like? Which ones would you wear? Should I post pictures once I actually take them out for a spin?
