Shop The Sandal All The It Girls Are Wearing

suede-ankle-wrap-block-heel-sandal-gianvito-rossiThey say that you can learn a lot about a person by their shoes.

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!

(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!)
