Despite being in the dead of winter, just like the ole groundhog, sometimes our tootsies want to come out and play, wiggle around and get a lil fresh air. No one wants to be cooped up all winter for Pete’s sake!!

Sooo polish up those little piggies and get ready to let them out into the light…even if it’s just for a few crisp, refreshing hours (they’ll appreciate the attention after being holed up and hibernating)) with an oh-so-chic pair of peep-toe booties!

Booties are still ever so popular, but as we march into spring, the open toe bootie is just the right platform (ha! Or heel) to set your fashionable feet off in the right direction. Jeans, ankle pants, a flowy trouser all work well, a midi skirt or dress will make the grade, and a mini will make your legs look just as endless as the possibilities.

So, belles, we have picked two options we found irresistible. We bought ’em, and so should you…that way we will all feel better, no shoe envy, no purchase pangs…win, win.


First up…a mid-high (tall blonde finds it to be acceptable for all-day wear without feeling like we are tipping over) stacked heel, Velcro adjustable sling and a perforated suede that is soo comfortable, edgy, and just plain smart looking. A great neutral that becomes whatever you need it to be, it’s a true must-have.

Our local Muse Shoe Studio has just placed a full reorder so get your name on a pair now!! True-to-size, by the by. You can also find this Jeffery Campbell bootie at Shopbop if you can’t wait another minute.

Next up…because we belles have a weakness for fringe, when we spied these beauties we practically pirouetted our way in to get them. We were already dizzy with delight so we restrained our dance moves and managed to maintain a more subtle prance to make our purchase .


These just make us want to frolick into spring, whistle a happy tune and kick winter to the curb. Again, we purchased from Muse, but word is they flew out of the store almost before they arrived. Looks like you can order from Dillards…but don’t delay!!  Both are selling fast!

So perk yourselves up with a pair or two, belles. The old tootsies will appreciate all that fresh air!
