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.
I usually refer back to my trusty colorwheel when styling coral - as part of the orange family, I'd pair it with neighboring colors red/pink or yellow for a tropical getaway look, or with shades of complementary blue for more everyday pairings. Grey didn't get a spot on the wheel but I really love that with coral as well for a softer look.
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!
Thank you Sole Society for sponsoring this post! Hope fellow New England-ers are staying warm + dry for round 2 of snow coming tomorrow night!
