Happy Saturday and welcome to another installment of Closet Classics! I’m going to be talking about one of my favorite things in the world to buy, shoes. I love shoe! I can’t even describe how much I love buying a new pair of shoes. I guess the best way to explain it is this. At one point during my teenage life, my mom banned me from buying more than one pair of shoes a month because I had nowhere to put my growing collection. I’m not as bad anymore because I can live vicariously through my older sister, who has an amazing shoe collection.
As we know it’s spring and spring means sandals. Lots and lots of sandals. I used to hate wearing sandals because I hate my feet. Then I realized that no one cares about my feet so I started wearing sandals and I’ve never looked back. As you know, I go to a school with a lot of stairs but I’m short so I still like to wear something with a little bit of a heel. Something that’s comfortable but still gives me some height.That’s why the chunky heel sandal, is a spring time staple for me.
The best thing about chunky heel sandals, is the versatility they offer. All of my chunky heels are around three to four inches. I don’t want to go higher than that because I do spend a fair amount of time walking around and it’s just not comfortable to wear heels higher then that all the time.
My favorite pair of chunky heel sandals have to be this black pair that I recently purchased from one of my favorite stores, Dorothy Perkins online.I absolutely adore the Rocco mid sandal in black! I’ve been wearing a lot more color lately, because it’s spring and I’m trying to brighten up my closet. These shoes literally go with everything. The heel is only 2.5 inches, so it’s comfortable. They are suede, so my only wearing would be to be careful about puddles. It is spring and I know many of you live in places where it does rain. Water is a quick death for anything made out of suede.
I wear mine with my a-line midi skirts, my dress, I even pair my nude-pinkish ones with leggings. They’re an easy way to make a causal outfits look you put a little more time and effort into them. If you’re looking for a pair of chunky heel sandals, my first place would be Nordstrom Rack because you can get really high quality shoes for a good price. The second place I’d look would be Nordstrom, you are going to pay a bit more money but I’ve never spent a lot of money on a shoe from there and regretted it. They’re always comfortable and they last forever. The last place I’d recommend looking would be DSW because like Nordstrom Rack, they have good shoes for a good price.
If you want more of a brand based chunky based shoe, I would go look in Aldo. I love Aldo shoes.They’re beyond comfortable and they look amazing. I would honestly look at Aldo to buy any shoe you’re looking for, not just chunky heel sandals. They can be a little pricey but it’s worth it. Plus you can always wait and shop sales!
That is it for this addition of Closet Classics, spring shoe addition! I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend, if you celebrate Easter, if not I hope you enjoy your weekend!

You can never have too many shoes, no matter what anyone may tell you.
