1) I love shoes.
2) I love shoes that help me break 5'2" (meaning they have to be AT LEAST 2.5").
3) I believe that shoes can make or break an outfit.
These MIA Tulua sandals are super tall and help take a pretty plain/monochromatic outfit to the next level. I believe that they stand out on their own, which is why I tried to keep the rest of the outfit relatively simple.
The sneaker-like soles and thick heels help illeviate face planting (although knowing me, anything is possible!) and the amazing ankle straps add a bit of detailing that's both fun and very on trend for spring.
Thanks MIA for sending me these gorgeous shoes and helping me step it up! Look for more posts in my #stepitup series soon!
PS- thanks Maggie for being an amazing puppy model!
