I went a little boot happy when I did my annual Thanksgiving-sale-season wardrobe booster this winter. Translation number one: I bought three pairs of boots, spending a couple hundred dollars more than I anticipated. Translation number two: I have worn boots every stinkin’ day since the first hint of frost.
So when temperatures reached the 70s last week in Connecticut, I was all about freeing my feet for a couple days. On sunny day number one, I opted for my favorite pair of pumps, followed by simple flats the next day. But by day three of sunshine, I need a little bit less.
So I went for the open-toe.
But let’s be honest, sunshine or no sunshine, it was still March 18; a date that technically falls in winter. And I’m starting to rethink my lapse in judgment here. I know that fashion peeps have recently reclaimed white shoes, saying it’s totally acceptable to slip them on before Memorial Day and after Labor Day, but what about a timeline for open toes?
What say you, Silly Statters? When do open-toed shoes become acceptable attire?
