The Perfect Platforms

Welcome to my first POP post! Since I'm not 100% sure where I want to start with all of this, I'm just going to go ahead and jump into it. Generally, things turn out more fun that way anyway! 

Today I want to share my current shoe-obsession. Platforms are nearly all I have my eye on right now. I'm crazy about the chunkiness and the amount of comfort they give compared to other heels. These Aldo gems give off such a sexy, playful 70s vibe, and I couldn't resist adding them to my ever-growing (and almost unnecessarily large) shoe collection... but aren't they perfect?? With shorts, dresses, and even skinny jeans, I'm going to be wearing these a LOT.


Another pair I purchased a little earlier this summer, also from Aldo, I fell in love with because they're the perfect tan summer wedge. Not too dark, not too light, and insanely comfy, which is a big deal for me. As a hair stylist, it's hard to find heels that can carry me comfortably for my 8-hour workdays, but these puppies fit the bill.


There's also options for the days we still want to look cute, but need a little more practicality. With just a hint of platform and a cute rope-wrap on the soles, these sandals from Urban Outfitters are perfect for pairing with a summery, lightweight top to run errands, or even with a swimsuit and a flowy cover-up for a day at the beach. As you can see, I've worn these out a little bit (okay, more like a lot), but they're awesome summer shoes and they've been a staple for me.


Since today and tomorrow are my days off, I'm trying my best to enjoy them. First thing this morning, I got to lay out by the pool with a morning cocktail and catch up on some reading. It was exactly what I needed to start my weekend. I'm not looking forward to grocery shopping in a couple of hours, but it's much needed. Hope everyone is having an awesome weekend!
