all about the ankles

Good morning... I am thinking about some of my summer shopping list items... and I can't ignore the fabulous attention that ankles are getting these days... from cropped pants, to the resurgence of anklets, to the plethora of fabulous ankle strap heels...
Top row heels: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6
Middle row wedges: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6
Bottom row flats: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6


I have my eyes on the Zara heels (top row #3), Topshop straw wedges (middle row #2), and Aldo color-blocked flats (bottom row #3)...
What do you think? Are ankle straps flattering or a fail?
What shoe is the top of your summer wish list?

Have a happy Sunday

  2. I like how ankle straps look, but sometimes I don't want to deal with the little buckles.

  3. I love the nude wedges. It is said that short girls should pick as narrow of an ankle strap as possible, especially with flats. I have no idea how tall you are, but I try to stay away from flats with ankle straps for fear they'll make my legs look stumpy. Thanks for the shoe overload!! xo

  5. Yes I agree... unfortunately as much as I love the look of thick ankle straps on others, for me personally, I have to stick to thin straps, but i don't mind flats with straps...

  14. I just can't get enough of shoes. I love all your choice. My fav. one is Zara Heels. But I see those everywhere though. All fashion blogger seems wearing them.

  15. I love all the ankle strap sandals/heels/wedges lately!  The problem I've been finding is that if they're not a perfect fit, they can be kind of uncomfortable and/or unflattering, but with all of these fab ones you've found, at least one is sure to be great!  I will say that I tried on that Zara pair in the store (in the ohsoahmazing aqua and cobalt color) but they fit really poorly on me - way too loose even though I tried on up to a full size lower than my usual, and they felt really unsturdy.  Sadly I had to pass on them :(  But they might work for someone else, and they are completely gorgeous in person!
