There’s currently nowhere to take outfit pics in my neighborhood with snowbanks piled higher than my head, so I’m temporarily escaping to a spring state of mind! This is a typical casual Friday look for me (always change my shoes at work after commuting), and grey or navy pants can easily be subbed in for the rest of the workweek. I first posted about these Sole Society “Jenn” heels last spring and again here as part of a summer outfit. They were sold out last year so I was happy to see they just got restocked in coral suede and this cute haircalf leopard (aka the dark camel multi). If you don’t own a pair of leopard-print pumps yet, they are surprisingly the most versatile “neutral” shoe and this option looks good for someone seeking a stylish lower heel. And they come in sz 4!
I love my share of sky-high heels but sometimes you just want a more sensible, lower pump. A lot of low and mid-heels skew on the matronly side but I’ve been liking Sole Society’s selection in youthful colors and fun prints. Fit-wise, I usually wear 5 or 5.5 and took a size 5 in the Jenn.
For those less familiar with shoe terminology, “d’orsay” refers to a cutout style that reveals the arch of your foot. I own two pairs and noticed those styles seem to be a tad more flattering on shorter legs vs. a regular pump in the same heel height. After a closer look I realize it’s certainly not rocket science – since your arch is exposed in a d’orsay shoe (compared to a regular pump where there is material on both sides), the extra inch of exposed foot gets added on visually to the leg line. This is a little more evident when worn bare-legged with skirts or dresses. I like the cutout simply for the design, but will happily take an extra inch to the legs as well!
