This year, I fell in love with suede shoes (specifically lace up suede sandals) so it’s a good thing it looks like this trend is here to stay – at least for the fall. Even though we are still in the middle of summer, fall fashion is right around the corner. Sometimes it can be hard to transition between seasons, especially when it comes to footwear. As an avid boot lover, I always find myself saying “is it too soon to wear boots yet?” I think these suede lace up sandals are a good alternative. Since most of them are “caged” it’s almost like wearing a pair of booties. The fabric and hues make them an appropriate option for those days when it’s not quite time to bring out your favorite boots.
