Summer Essentials: Standout Flat Sandals

Sandal flats are an essential part of summer. They exude the effortless attitude of the season and allow you to relax. I’m guilty of wearing flip flops far too often…

Best Espadrilles: The Raffia Roundup

Though there are those of us who live in temperate climates and get to wear espadrilles all year long (sorry!), I know you’re not all in that same sun-kissed boat. With the back-and-forth between winter and spring weather…

TANYA HEATH Paris: The Quick Click

At the end of a long night, when your feet are in so much pain from wearing heels that you actually consider sleeping on the sidewalk (don’t tell me you haven’t been there!), you have one of two options…

These western-inspired Giuseppe Zanotti mules in the center fulfill every single cowgirl dream I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to wear them with distressed boyfriend jeans or an ankle-grazing skirt.
