Stappy Heeled Sandals: My new favorite find

I can not tell you how happy I am about the latest "trend" of strappy heeled sandals. I'm in love with the minimalist look and feel of these ultra feminine shoes.  They're just so flattering. I have yet to see them look anything less than fabulous on any one.

It all began when I first layed my eyes on these YSL heels.  I couldn't resist the classic design.  It reminded me of how Apple designs their products to be so simple yet incredibly functional. They looked more like a work of art then just a simple pair of shoes.   That's when I started the hunt for my first pair.  At this point, I only have one pair of heeled sandals but rest assured I will invite another pair to join  my collection.


I was a little bummed that the YSL shoes cost $800.00.  As much as I love them, they're not within my budget.  Then my prayers were heard when I stumbled upon a nearly identical pair from Zara at 1/10th of the cost. I've already planned a trip to the mall to check them out for myself.  Since I have such a simple style,  I need a pair of striking shoes to take my look to the next level.

One of my intentions this year is to dress a little more feminine.  Which means wearing more skirts and dresses. I think the minimal look of these heels will keep the focus on my attire while complimenting the outfit perfectly.  Another thing I love about this look is that it requires me to continue to take good care of my feet.  Ever since I started exfoliating them every day, I've been able to walk confidently knowing that even in the dead of winter, I still have soft, healthy heels.  Speaking of exfoliation. After being inspired by Chilli on a previous post,  I've been thinking a lot lately about creating an exfoliation routine that we can do everyday to create/maintain healthy skin and hair.  I'll be dedicating a post on this topic because I would like to turn it into a challenge for all of us.  Before any challenge, I like to build a routine and experiment personally before sharing with everyone.
