Ciao a tutti!
My fellow Shoe-A-Holics, one of the hardest things for me to do when I dress, is to strike a balance between dressy and casual; compounded by the warmer weather, this proves exceedingly difficult when I want to remain cool, but still look put together.
I often tell people that the outfit is, "All about the shoes," and in this case it really is. Shorts have a very relaxed vibe about them, and the shorter they are, one risks venturing into beach territory. So to keep from looking like I'm on the way to frolic in the surf, I ditched the (thongs) flip-flops (and yes, even the heeled variety), and instead went with a cleverly, cut-down, open-toe pump, which not only lengthens my legs, but also sharpens the look of the shorts.
Baci a tutti!
