What I'd Wear Wednesday: Sandals

What I'd wear today if I could: these sandals from Tar-zhay. And you know what? I am wearing them! Yep, I'm sitting here at my computer, wearing them just because I can. That is, until Fly wakes up from his nap and the three-and-a-half-inch heels become a hindrance.

This past weekend, JP, Fly and I were out and about more than usual. For some reason, I kept noticing that there were some exceptionally dressed women. They weren't overdressed; they just looked stylishly casual. It made me feel frumpy. No, not frumpy -- shlumpy. Well, see, I was wearing some new shorts and a nice top, but I still felt I didn't have a look. Do you know what I mean? I kept seeing loose sundresses and metallic gladiator sandals like these:





and I was a little awestruck and felt a little less than fabulous.

Anyway, fast-forward to today, and I had to buy a new vacuum cleaner. (What a glamorous life!) I went to three places looking for one and ended up at Target. With the vacuum stuffed into my cart, I heard the shoe department calling my name. And that's when I found my peep-toe floral-print wedges. (Oh, and a cute little brown knit skirt clearanced for $7.48.) No, they're not metallic gladiator sandals. But they are exactly fabulous. Just ask my feet.

I'd rock those heels all day every day! Maybe if my hubby ever gets a job again, I WILL rock the shoes! :)

I'm not big on the metallic flats though... I always think they look bejeweled.

Oooh, cute! I rarely wear heels because:

1) My husband is my height.
2) Oh yeah, three kids.

Still, I covet them like crazy.

Love the peep toe heels, but sadly don't have much opportunity to wear heels much these days. Sigh. I can't quite get behind the metallic gladiator sandals. Maybe I'm too much of a fuddy duddy.

They're still really cute! I love love love shoes and have a closet full of them. The sad thing is I only alternate between a couple of pairs.

P.S. LOVED Scribbit's feature on you!

I *wish* I could comfortably rock those adorable heels. I'd probably end up just looking cute while sitting down a lot though :) My feet say they like the gladiator sandals better, they're just one teeny bit away from being barefoot!

Very cute. My feet are so swollen right now, about the only thing they fit into is slippers. So, I'll live vicariously through you!
