You crack me up – you are like a kid in a candy (shoe) store with all of your spring shoe desires. And with all that research, you pick the neutral, conservative flat!
For me, there is one shoe that I’m focused on this spring. Here are my take-me-everywhere, go-with-everything shoes: Burberry platform wedge in dark tan:
The neutral color makes it the ideal shoe to wear with jeans or tailored trousers during the early spring, and maxi dresses or longer skirts throughout the summer.
The other good news about this shoe for me: If you wear your flats, the Burberry wedge’s 5-inch heel would bring within one inch of being as tall as you!
