New Shoe Sunday

Wow its been forever since I've posted!! That's going to be my opening for a while now (hopefully not...) but I'm back and I'm bring fashion back to my style blog! I recently got 2 pairs of shoes, and I haven't posted anything about style in forever, so I thought I'd do my first Shoe Sunday! 
The most recent pair that I received were a pair of Topshop Arabels. Literally the last ones...anywhere. I bought them off of the Nordstrom's website after failing to get to the Topshop store in New York, and I'm
a) amazed I got them 
b) in love with them, to the point where I haven't taken them off for 3 days
c) glad I waited.
The shoes weren't on sale in New York as I later found out, but when I got home, I saw that there was one pair available in my size online, so I paid for them ASAP, especially since they were $60 cheaper than normal. The shoes are amazing and I can't rave about them enough. The buckle adds a nice accent to the simple black leather, and the leather is stiff enough that the shoes hold their shape, but not tio the point that I can't walk in them. The heel is low and comfortable, and they are great walking shoes after they're broken in. The only problem I have with them is the back strap, it digs in sometimes when walking, but a little pad on the back can fix that.

 While I was in New York over the Christmas break, I went to 2  Zara's around the city searching for these shoes in my size, and I do not regret dragging my family around New York for a pair of shoes in the slightest! These shoes are a dream to walk in, even for long periods of time. They're high enough that they elongate my legs, but not too high where its like walking in a pair of stilettos. None of the straps dig in, and the contrasting sole makes them a great pair of statement shoes. They can be dressed up and down and look great day of night!!
