Obsessions! the 2-strap sandal.

Happy Monday everyone!

Not only is today actually a great Monday(NO SCHOOL-EEK!), but it really is a GREAT Monday-it’s Marten Luther King day! Of course I hat to post about this, because we all should be thankful for this day and MLK no matter the race, age or sex. I just wanted to share some of my favorite pictures going around right now…

Just take a moment and think about how this person has affected us in such a positive way, and how we can continue to do as he would have wished.

And now for my Monday special!! You might remember from yesterday’s post something that I tried on that I literally want to buy in every color and every shape and form….(I’m not sure what to call it, so I made up my own name-) the 2 strap sandal!!

I’m not sure how or where this sandal trend started, but it’s definitely catching like wildfire! As I said yesterday, the sandals I tried on yesterday were Calvin Klein. And SO adorable and classy-like a proper pair of heels should be.

I would definitely wear these heels dressed down with a pair of skinnies, maybe a blazer and a tshirt. But I would most definitely wear them dressed down. Or with leggings and a loose shirt.

For dressed up, just with a very flowy dress. You wouldn’t want to put these heels on with a form fitted dress because then you take the risk of looking SO much older than you are….scary ladies. Here’s some of my favorite 2-strap heels and ways to wear them.

and the girliest (and least expensive!) of them all-Steve Madden.Image

and now a few ways to style these babes-from 2 of my favorite bloggers-

Aimee Song from SongofStyle

and Ashley Madekwe from Ring My Bell (If you watch Revenge, she looks familiar, eh? It’s her!)

I love how Aimee paired her heels with unexpected camo pants, but still made the outfit look girly and pretty(I doubt I could pull this one off-but I might interpret the outfit with colored skinnies instead…) and I also love how Ashley’s outfit is simple and do-ble, also chic.

That’s all for now, I hope to see more of these fabulous sandals-they really are the epitome of a classy, stylish woman.

Have a wonderful Monday!
