I tried out my black DV Pali sandals in two different ways this week.
Yesterday I wanted to play up the ankle strap pattern. I wore slightly cropped leggings to really bring out the pattern. Cropped pants and ankle strap shoes have the potential to go horribly wrong but I think this works because It is all one color from head to toe, I emphasized my waist and wore a short skirt over slim bottoms. (Tucker for Target dress, Target cropped leggings and old handbag, DV Pali sandals)
Today I minimized the potentially shortening ankle straps by wearing pants that are low contrast with the shoes and go all the way down to the ankle strap. The dolman sleeve top was one of Angie's picks from last NAS. At first I thought it was too long but I'm glad I kept it. I am digging wearing tunic length tops over leggings these days. Plus I love dolman sleeves, even if they don't always love me. (Angie recommended top from NAS last year, ON rock star jeggings, DV Pali sandals and super old handbag )
Whether these work or not, happiness scale was a 10! Comments and suggestions always welcome!
ETA: I just realized that I ticked off Y/N and can't turn it off now! Help me pick your favorite way to wear these ankle strap sandals.
YAY: show off the straps
NAY: minimize the straps
Wildcard 1: works both ways
Wildcard 2: doesn't work either way
