Ankle strap shoes have been very popular recently – it adds another dimension to a shoes silhouette but it also gives us the extra support (and who doesn’t need all the support they can get). The shoes, whether sky high heels, flats, or somewhere in between are the perfect blend of elegance and cool. No matter what style of shoe you prefer there are ankle straps on everything from boots, wedges, sandals, pumps and ballet flats. Ankle strap shoes can give you a bit of an edge while still playing it safe. In our crazy lives chasing kids and getting on with our work or daily errands we need a bit of effortless style and this accessory provides everything you need to be both stylish and even functional. There are plenty of variations on ankle strap shoes beyond heel hight there’s whether the shoes is all over strappy, more delicate and understated in it’s ankle strap or just has one big bold strap at the ankle. Easy to throw on with a pair of relaxed and distressed boyfriend jeans to transform your park outfit to your going out outfit but also conservative enough to wear at the office for an overall chic professional look. Check out some of my favorite ankle strap shoes – and since I always like to have some great options for our little one I’m playing with the choo choo idea and showing some of the great wooden toy options (PS – I’m obsessed with everything Melissa and Doug) for our kids. Wooden toys are greener, non toxic, more classic and all around great options for our kids’ cognitive development (and easier on our eyes and ears as well).
