Tuesday Shoesday: Ankle Strap Heels

Even though I've been quite obviously obsessed with booties lately...aka I accidentally bought a pair of YSL platform booties over MLK weekend...I've also been on the hunt for the perfect pair of ankle strap heels. I'm definitely a fan of a sexy, high, high heel (often platform), but these are just as sexy without totally destroying your foot with crazy height. My favorite in this group is definitely Nicholas' "Hari" pump. I absolutely love the texture, the shape of the heel, the color combination and the overall weight of the shoe. It's delicate without being too strappy and can be paired with anything from cocktail attire to jeans and a cute black tee.

This style is so versatile, which is a huge selling point for me (and you, depending on what you have to work with in terms of "dress code" at work). I really try (keyword try...clearly YSL booties are not gonna fly at an accounting firm) to buy both clothing and shoes that will work on the weekend as well as in the office. Living in L.A. makes that a little easier for professionals, as guidelines for attire are on average less conservative than other cities. However, I think there is certainly at least one ankle strap heel that will work in your office (and after hours). Case in point, option #2: Jeffrey Campbell's "Soltair" pumps. They're a comfortable height and they're neutral but have that bit of texture to keep it interesting!

So, those first two options are my favorites, but I found so many I loved that I couldn't leave them out! The best part is that two of the three are under $150! I really love the Pour La Victoire wedges (center), so get them before I buy them first...
