Shoe Lust Monday - ZARA Printed Platform Sandals with Ankle Strap

I've been admiring this pair of Zara sandals ever since they released their spring lookbook. Zara is probably my favourite high street store--H&M comes second.

I find that the styles of the shoes they release are pretty darn fabulous, even though most designs are a watered down version of a high fashion/design house counterpart.

This particular pair caught my eye due to the inspired-by-Charlotte-Olympia feel. It has that chunk of platform at the front, and a high stiletto back. I've been a sucker for ankle straps lately--it really helps with the stability of the shoe when you're wearing it.

The upper materials are made of cotton and linen (hello, summer), the lining of polyester and polyurethane and the sole is 100% rubber. The inverse leopard print is a cool alternative and the fabric look on the sandal is so season-appropriate. The heel is super high at 4.92 inches, but the thick platform will helps offset that. I'm still debating if I should order it online at Zara.com; I mean the price is wallet-friendly at $69.90 CAD!

Such a fun shoe calls for an equally fun outfit. Here's what I'd style these beauties with:

Hope you're all having a great week so far! x
