Spring shoe patterns at DSW: Adventures in platform sandals

Let’s look at shoes!
I glanced at my feet yesterday, which was the very first time I’d paid interest to them in ages, as well as two thoughts pertained to mind…

Hurrá! sandal season is coming.

LEHURROGÁS! sandal season in coming. (Note to self: get a tube of exfoliating foot cream ASAP.)

Warm weather condition is ideal around the corner, which indicates that it’s time to complimentary the feet, so, since I like to be prepared (and, also, since I don’t own any type of flat sandals that are comfortable), my primary sidekick/sous chef as well as I went to DSW yesterday.


Találd ki? They have rather a few choices for women who can’t wait to liberate their toes from the suffocating oppression of socks.

I went in particularly trying to find choices that aren’t sky-high heels, as well as I was blown away by all of the options this season.

SO lots of FLATS!

Flat sandals with a platform base, in particular, are having a moment, as well as I’m right here for it 100%. I like the concept of integrating the comfort of flats with an additional couple inches of height.

First huge trend: flat platform sandals with a cork base

This pattern is a bit like your standard cork wedge heel, however with a flatter base. I observed lots of neutral colors (black, tan, white as well as beige) as well as single thick straps around the ankles, commonly with a Velcro closure.

I debated for a long time whether to take these Franco Sarto sandals home, since I liked the warmth of the darker tan color as well as the outlining on the base. They were quite comfortable too, however I might feel the ankle strap ever-so-slightly scrubing against my skin…

While I like the white base, it’s going to be difficult to keep clean.

I’m crazy picky when it pertains to shoes now (one of the unforeseen side impacts of the pandemic!), as well as if a shoe is even just a touch “off” from the get-go, I understand I’m not going to wear them.

So, even though I liked them in theory, I didn’t bring them home.

These were kinda cute.
My Sous chef likewise wasn’t a fan…

Sous chef says, “No say thanks to you!”
Second huge trend: espadrille flat platform sandals

I saw a great deal of these espadrille flats with a platform base too.

Some of the espadrilles likewise had the exact same white base I saw from the Franco Sarto pair I tried on. Again, like this in theory, however dang… I’m going to get those filthy in a hot second. as well difficult to keep tidy.

When Crocs step you…

I’ve never in my life been a Crocs person, however I was kinda moved by these platforms. They look a bit low-cost when you see them just sitting there since of the material, however they look higher end on your feet.

I tried on the taupe as well as liked exactly how they looked as well as felt, however I didn’t pull the trigger! now I’m believing about the black as well as beige pair since I might wear them with so lots of things, as well as they really looked rather chic.

Sous chef is not impressed.
I’m still on the fence…

Anywho, I’m going to keep looking, as well as I’ll let you understand if I discover anything good!

Pet store visits

We’ve been going to Petco everyday this week since Connor just recently made a guinea pig friend.

Our everyday see to the pet store to see Peachy the guinea pig
Connor is a bit consumed with a tan as well as white female guinea pig currently residing there named “Peaches.” I keep telling Connor that a person day we’re going to go in as well as Peaches will be gone, since she’ll have discovered her permanently home… I believe Connor is not-so-secretly hoping we’ll embrace her.

I would like to add Peaches to our family, however I’m terrified that Rosie would abuse the bad thing! I would dislike for Peaches to online her life in fear, ya know?

Does any individual have experience with guinea pigs cohabitating with cats? Can they online together?
