One shoe, three looks for the party season.

One shoe, three looks

Donna Loka by Marcopizzi,  Italian leather flat sandal $90

It’s coming up party season and maybe you can’t have a different pair of shoes for every party/B.B.Q./get together that you are going to (wouldn’t that just be the life!), so you need to make one or two do all the jobs for you.

May we present the comfy flat option. Or Plan S (for sandal).

A flat sandal like the one above can take you to an office Christmas party when paired back with a simple black outfit like a cool summer jumpsuit. Jazz it up with a blingy clutch bag and you are comfortable, stylish, classy and definitely not under dressed in any way.

Day time function? Maybe something on grass? Do not fall prey to the idea that heels on grass is a good look. Struggling to keep your balance (and your dignity) while you core the lawn is no easy feat and should be avoided at all costs or left to the professionals! Outdoors should be handled in flats or wedges whenever possible!

Work your flats back with a cute skirt, maybe some stripes and a colourful bag, just for funzies!

Justify getting those metallic shorts you have had your eye on by knowing you can dress them down. Metallic finishes are no longer just for evenings or very dressy events. They work really well with a more casual vibe too. Throw them back with your flats and an oversized bag to bring them down a notch or two, then dial them back up with heels and some bling when you need to. Early evening soiree, sorted.

See, one little sandal, multiple outfits, looks and events! Hello party season! :)
