Perhaps, that’s why as women we have this thing with shoes?! Maybe, we’re just fulfilling our anthropological duties to study each other and learn more about our species – ha!
The more likely case: we simply admire a good pair of shoes.
My focus on the suede, wrap-around, block-heel sandal (could the descriptive title be any longer?!) should probably come as no surprise to you because:
1) I’ve used it in many styling posts over the past 2 months.
2) You’ve probably seen it on the scene and admired it, as I have.
I love the mix of style and function — a rare (and comfortable) combo when it comes footwear. Wrap around sandal styles have been hugely popular, but most styles seem to be geared for evening wear. While the wrap-around factor still gives you that summer, sexy look, the block heel makes this particular shoe much more practical for daytime styling — your feet will agree.
Try this shoe style with a typically dressier outfit to give it a daytime spin — you’ll be amazed at how much further you’ll be able to take your existing wardrobe!
While the original GIANVITO ROSSI suede wrap around block heel sandal is definitely a splurge, I’ve managed to find some almost identical and much more affordable styles for all budgets — take a look below!

Is this a style that you would wear?
(P.S. — I wanted to switch gears for a second and give y’all a quick reminder that the NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE (Early Access) starts today! Although I know we all want summer to last as long as possible — strategically, I think it’s best to shop this sale with fall basics in mind.
I know, crazy!!! Right?
From LEATHER MOTO JACKETS to classic BURBERRY QUILTED JACKETS, the outerwear department is a good place to start! Make a pitstop in denim and score a classic pair of RAG & BONE DARK WASH SKINNY JEANS, then head on over to the sweater section and pick up this CARAMEL V-NECK SWEATER (for under $35!). Obviously, you’ll need accessories to complete the look: try this 3.1 PHILLIP LIM BUCKET BAG and my favorite RAG & BONE BOOTIES in a warm caramel nubuck!)
