Ruthie Davis West Palm Patent Platform Sandals, $798
Now that the summer shoe collections are starting to filter out into stores, I couldn’t be happier. Well, OK, I probably could. I would be happier it was actually summer, for instance, and I could wear these shoes rather than just looking at them. And if I had the money to actually BUY them. But you know what I mean. I hope.
These Ruthie Davis sandals are the colours of candy, and ice cream, and other good things. Sure, there’s a lot of colours there, but the fact that they’re pastels, rather than jewel tones (or worse: neons) means that these should be pretty easy to wear – try matching any one of the colours on the upper with a sundress in that shade, for instance, and it’ll work.
I’m a huge fan of Ruthie Davis shoes, but I have to admit that many of the styles are a little too “out there” to be wearable on anything like a regular basis. Not these ones, though: they have a huge dose of that “Ruthie” style, but they’re still the kind of sandals I could easily imagine actually wearing, as opposed to just looking at: a good thing, considering the price of them!
I love shoes like this. They are so colorful but if they’re in the right color palette for your wardrobe they can end up going with anything.
Mmm I wish we could afford to vacation somewhere warm this winter.
Very pretty. Love the colour combination!
