In These Shoes: J.Crew Everly T-Strap Pumps

At my day job, I'm neck-high in fall fashion. On one hand, it's weird to be talking about wool and leather and dark colors when it's over 90 degrees outside, but on the other hand, I can't wait for it to be fall. I love going to the beach and I really love sandals, but I do not like sweating, humidity, how the city smells, air-conditioning, or bugs. My comfort level falls somewhere between 65 and 75 degrees, so, yes, I know, I should move to San Francisco. But I digress. I'm totally looking forward to that sweater-and-jeans weather that starts up around late September, and while I can't even bear to look at fall clothes right now, I can at least look at fall shoes. And I would like to look at these J.Crew Everly pumps, and then look at them some more, and then look at them on my own feet. They're the type of shoes that at first you think, "These won't go with anything in my closet," but then realize, "These go with everything in my closet." The archival foulard print is so unique, it will elevate whatever you're wearing, and the pointy cap toe is very on-trend for fall (trust me: pointy toes are back). These shoes are an investment, but as I noted last week, investments are where it's at. And, as I've discovered, closed-toe come in handy in the summer when your pedicure starts chipping but you don't have time for a new one. See, some things are seasonless.
