I’m feeling romantic just like the rest of the fashion world. Florals are obvious choices with spring soon to be blooming, but the Impressionist aesthetic offers something fresher with a sense of wonder and imagination that makes me want to stroll through countryside gardens and sip rosé in the afternoon! Like painting, fashion is an art, so the question is which piece leaves the best impression on you?
Manolo Blahnik BB Fabric Watercolor Pump: These bright colors give Impressionism a boost of modernity and would excite even the simplest jeans and tee outfit. At Neiman Marcus for $645.
Walter Steiger Puckered Print Peep-Toe Pump: Flowers don’t generally bloom straight, so why should heels? Steiger’s curved pump has never made more sense to me! At Neiman Marcus for $695.
Jimmy Choo Lola Floral Python Platform Pump: Not so much Impressionist as they are floral, but how could I exclude floral print on python?? The way the flowers bounce off the texture is mesmerizing and intriguing. At Neiman Marcus for $1,495.
Manolo Blahnik BB Floral Print Pump: Blahnik splashes the color scheme of Monet’s famous water lily paintings over satin to create the subtlest of floral patterns. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $655.
Nicholas Kirkwood Erdem Millian Floral-Print Satin and Paillette Heel Pumps: On the opposite end of the flower power spectrum, these Kirkwoods are undeniably botanical. Wear with caution (but also with pride!). At Saks Fifth Avenue for $1,495.
