a little ankle wrap / tassel moment...

H&M sandals / Old Navy maxi skirt

So, I feel a little bit guilty about doing this to you all - but I couldn't resist showing off these pretty old H&M sandals. I think they were gifted to me by my roommate Jessica, but I'm not even sure. Anyway, they went unworn on my shoe rack - blending into the rows of oxfords, loafers and familiar flats I thoughtfully invested in - for months and months, with their flimsy $17.95 price tag still attached. 

Then last weekend something funny happened. Circa 10 p.m. on Saturday night, I was thrashing around my closet (running late, naturally) trying to find the right shoes to wear with my Madewell shift dress. Too simple! Too tall! Too beat up! I was at a loss and feeling desperado. On the verge of hitting the town barefoot, I glanced at the tiniest of wooden wedge heels, and thought, "Eh?"

I'm not saying I feel like Cinderella in these darling little things, but if I were to leave one behind at the next ball, I'd be devastated.
