In life, balance is key. Too much of a good thing makes it banal in the long run. So as much as I love walking around in my flip flops in Bali under the breezy Summer sun, I don’t want to do it all year long. In fact, after doing that for a couple of weeks, I start craving the cracked, uneven street concrete floors of Europe. So I do Bali a bunch of times in the year and I head to Europe every year end. That’s my attempt at finding balance.
My point is, when you’re tired of having grime under your feet and when you start thinking about covered shoes, consider this great pair of belted boots by Dsquared. The black is universally flattering and versatile. In fact, this is a great way to jazz up a work outfit. It’s chic and far from ordinary without screaming that fact out loud.
The belted detail is the standout detail. It wraps and criss-crosses with easy and smooth lines. I like how this looks tough and yet very neutral. It’s got a quiet ease that is appealing all year long.
