Over the next few months, there’s bound to be at least two (but probably a lot more) Saturdays on your calendar that are blocked off for a wedding. Am I right? If any of those weddings happen to be outdoors, you’ll need to give special consideration to your shoes. There will no doubt be a lot of time spent on your feet – and more than likely it will be on surfaces like grass or gravel. Having the right pair of shoes is critical. Read: no stilettos. They provide little to no support and they’ll more than likely end up getting stuck in the dirt. Instead, go for a pair of block heels. My personal pick? The “Clarita” sandal from Alexandre Birman. I bought my first pair (in a gingham print) a little less than a year ago and quickly found them to be a perfect pick for outdoor parties – nuptials and beyond! They’re comfortable and the block heel provides just the right amount of support for long hours spent on the dance floor. Not to mention, I love the design with the ankle-tie detail.
I wore these sandals so much last summer that I decided a second pair was in order. Since I already have a print, I opted for a neutral this time. The good news is that there’s plenty of choices when it comes to color – from basic black (enter STYLE10 to get 10% off this pair!) to brighter options like emerald green and an adorable floral print. (In the case that you’re the bride, this pair would be a perfect “something blue.”) These heels are the definition of pretty-meets-practical and totally worth the investment.
