COVETING: Pour La Victoire Neysa Two Tone Sandals
www.shopbop.com; sale (now) $132.50
I have a serious crush on these killer platform sandals. I love the two tone style and the chunky heel. The platform is so chic, and the ankle strap is super ladylike. I think that these would be the perfect late-summer addition to my wardrobe. How sweet would they be with a pleated skirt or shown off by a hi-low hem for a breezy summer night out?
Although sports aren't generally my thing, I'll admit it -- I've been swept up into Olympic fever. I suddenly find myself caring about every one of Michael Phelps' races and tearing up over Gabby Douglas' inspirational story. And as far as I'm concerned, the Olympics are a fantastic excuse to stay ensconced in an air-conditioned den with good friends, cheering on the red, white, and blue. So this weekend, consider throwing an impromptu viewing party stepped up a notch or two with fun themed decorations and, of course, food. After all, it's all in the name of patriotism.
