I have to admit, shoes like this used to really confuse me. Are they booties, or are they sandals? Do you wear them in cold or warm weather? But then I purchased a pair of peep toe booties (here), and I found myself wearing them ALL the time! Here’s why- they blur the lines of shoes and seasons, so it gives you more flexibility. This makes them the perfect shoe during “trans-seasonal” times of the year! They don’t make sense if it’s freezing out (your toes would freeze), and they don’t make sense if it’s scorching (your ankles would sweat). But throughout the rest of the year, you can wear them! Think about it… your big winter boots can only be worn during really cold months, right? Well, since these are a combination of a bootie and a sandal, they can be worn during different seasons!
So now you can see why I had to have another pair! I went into Nordstrom to look for the perfect new pair of jeans for the fall (more on this later) and walked out with these! You know you’ve got good shoes when your husband likes them! I was deciding between two pairs of shoes, so I asked my husband his opinion. He chose the new shoes with no hesitation! When I asked why he said, “because they were cool”. So I guess you know what shoes I’ll be wearing on the next date night -ha! I’ll also be wearing them on my upcoming trip to Chicago with a sundress!
Well gals, now we need to come up with a good name for them! They are typically referred to as a peep toe bootie, but we could come up with something so much better! What about sandootie, bootal, sootie? Ha!
Here are a few of my favorites:
