Summer Feet

I was at the salon this week getting my bimonthly manicure and pedicure when I thought about all of the cute sandals that I want to wear this summer.  As my nail lady massaged my feet and applied a great smelling foot scrub, I realized how important it is to take care of my feet if I want my feet to look good in my summer shoes.

Our feet and hands are just as important as the clothing we wear.  They can make or break an outfit.  There are so many different color combinations and nail art that can give us whatever look we are going for.

We should only wear sandals that fit properly .  Toes should not hang over front of our shoe nor should our heels spill over the back of the shoe.

Toes should be either perfectly polished (no chips) or nail polish free.  If you can’t go to the salon and get a pedicure, you can always do it yourself.

Heels should be pumiced to reduce hard yellow calluses.  Scaly, rough looking heels are a turn off and take away from the look of your shoes.  There are many do it yourself feet scrubs that can be used to give you that smooth, clean look. I’m sure you’ve seen the commercial for the Amope foot pedicure tool.  It’s the one that shaves all of the dead skin from your heels.  I decided to purchase it and try it out. It actually does work.  I was very satisfied with my results.  You can use it on dry or wet skin.  Also, shave the hairs off your toes if it is more than fluff.

Never ever wear hosiery with sandals.  It’s not a good look and it’s hard to walk with your feet sliding because of the hosiery.  Have corns attended to by a podiatrist, if necessary.

Remove toe rings toward the end of the day if your toes have a tendency to swell.

Treat your feet regularly with foot soap if you suffer with ‘smelly feet’.

Pamper yourself with regular pedicures this summer so that your feet will look great in those great summer sandals.

Fashion Fridays!

It’s time to “Spring Forward”.  Not only by moving the clock forward one hour, but also by pulling out our spring attire.  One of my first go-to items is the spring dress.  It’s so easy to work with and easy to accessorize.  We should all have at least one go-to dress in our wardrobe.  You know, that one that you can throw on without ironing when you have a last minute engagement?  That one that you can dress up or down with heels or flats?  This summer don’t forget about the tennis shoes.  They’re a hot go-to shoe to wear with your cute summer dress.  I’ve selected a few examples below to get your summer dress ideas flowing:

Fashion Friday!

This Friday’s outfit of the day consist of an orange swing dress trimmed in white made by me last summer and is one of my go-to dresses. It’s easy to dress up or down. I could have easily wore it with sandals. This time I wore it with orange pumps by Nine West along with my choice of costume jewelry as I was on my way to church. I hope you enjoy it.
