I may or may not have a slight obsession with shoes…
I have always been a shoe gal. My mom always told me, “you are just like your dad when it comes to shoes.” My dad always had the nicest shoes! I think he pretty much would have spent one entire pay check on a pair of alligator boots. He had an entire shoeshine kit and made sure his shoes were always shining like the highlight on my cheeks. He took such care and pride in his shoes. I remember him putting on a shirt, some fitted jeans and then killin’ the game with his shoes. My dad knew he was the stuff! He had a particular cool “new shoe” walk and would strut around in his shoes and everyone took note.
I remember when he was sick, I felt so blessed to be able to buy him one of his last pairs of alligator shoes. The expression on his face was priceless when he opened them up. I believe he even got to wear them a few times. Basically, my dads love for shoes is my excuse for being the shoe whore that I am today.
This summer, I am rocking some super cute sandals!
Sam Edelman. You really can’t go wrong with a Sam Edelman sandal. My fave this summer are my black Griffin Fringe sandals. They are cute and the fringe gives them a little bit of an edge. They are comfortable and I can throw them on with pretty much anything!
My absolute favorite sandals are by Aminah Abdul Jillil. Let me tell you how OBSESSED I am with these sandals! The shape, the bling, the bows and the colors! These sandals will set you apart from the rest. They are unique and sexy. They are the perfect accessory for your feet. These sandals will make ugly feet look beautiful! I’m tellin’ ya, people won’t even notice your feet, they will be too busy staring at your bomb sandals! I pretty much wore the hell out of my black bow pair for two summers straight. Like, literally, I wore them so much that I had to get a new pair this year! Haha. But I loved them that much, that I wanted to buy them again! And don’t talk about the pink ones with the crystal heart that I just purchased. OMG, bling bling for your ankle! Those are a show-stopper for sure! I am in total love with her sandals and she has some other pretty unique and awesome shoe designs as well!
