Daily Covet: Ann Taylor Katarina Sandals

Not sure who Katarina is, but I love her sandals.

But seriously, these Ann Taylor sandals scream “SUMMER!” and I’m so ready for warmer weather – especially with a foot of snow on the Midwestern ground.

I love the pale gold color that would look great against summer-tanned feet. There’s a small heel for comfort mostly, and some metal detailing up top too… really a perfect spring break or summer sandal!

Daily Covet: Stuart Weitzman 5050 Boot

Stuart Weitzman’s 5050 boot has been gracing the feet of women everywhere for more than 20 years.

In suede or nappa leather, the 5050 features styles with heels ranging from low to high to a comfortable wedge. The 5050 is also featured in a rainbow of muted colors making it the must-have boot for virtually every fashionista.

The over-the-knee style is especially popular this year and looks amazing with shorts, short skirts and of course, the skinniest of jeans.

How I would love to have a suede pair in every color. But at $635+ a pair, black is probably my favorite – and as always, the most versatile.

Daily Covet: Tory Burch Satin Smoking Slippers

I love all the holiday-esque fabrics and colors that the designers are offering this time of year.

Tory Burch has a rather extensive collection of smoking slippers this season and I’m in love with these Tory Burch Mayada satin slippers. I love the rich emerald color and bedazzled-ness of them – not to mention they’d go with my entire wardrobe. (Black pants, black sweaters, black skirts and black dresses!)

These would be absolutely lovely on a festive neighborhood walk, at a holiday party or for Christmas dinner. And if green isn’t your thing – try out the most royal looking slippers you’ve ever seen in purple!

Daily Covet: J.Crew Barrett Suede Ankle Boot

Is it fall yet? I mean, no one loves summer more than I do, but if we can’t be sleeping in, playing at the pool or going on vacation – bring on the cooler temps already!

I’d also like to pull out my fall wardrobe and start picking out some nice investment pieces to get me through the year, if not the next few. These J.Crew Barrett suede ankle boots are totally gorgeous and the fact that they come in navy (black and grey too!) was super exciting for me.

Navy is the new black, after all! (Follow me and get shopping info on lilblacksweats on Polyvore.com)

Daily Covet: Sam Edelman Becker Sneakers

There’s nothing bigger in footwear than slip-ons at the moment.

That’s why these Sam Edelman Becker Sneakers are on my must-have list.  Well, that’s not the only reason. Carrying bags, baby, keys and more out the door is tough to do – which only leaves one hand to put your shoes on… if that!

Sam Edelman’s go-with-anything sneakers would be perfect since I can’t wear flip-flops all fall and winter too. I’m wild about these sneakers and would love to try them on with denim skimmers, sweatshirt dresses and even shorts!

Where can’t these Beckers in such a cute animal print go?

Daily Covet: Louboutin Lace-Up Ankle Boots

The thing about watching too much Sex & the City is you start to shop for all the fabulous shoes, clothing and handbags you see on the show.

I have this critical lapse in the reality of my bank account and start looking at gorgeous shoes from Louboutin or Manolo Blahnik.  Or it seems normal to virtually shop for designer clutches that are worth more than my refrigerator.

But after searching high and low for the perfect lace up booties in black in places that “regular girls” can afford, it was just my luck to find exactly what I’ve been envisioning in my head in the Louboutin section of Neiman Marcus.

Leave it to me to choose the absolute most expensive thing every time.

But these would be so worth it… for the beautiful red soles alone!Christian_Louboutin_Laurence_Lace-Up_Red_Sole_Ankle_Boot__Black
