Sincerely, C U R R E N T L Y | Ankle Strap Heels

Wednesday, July 31, 2019

Summer is f l y i n g b y + I can't believe we've been at this series since JANUARY! We took a mini break in June {+ by mini break I mean it was super unintentional + we barely saw each other from being so busy}, but now we're back at it like we never left. Say hello to our take on one of our favorites - ANKLE STRAP HEELS!

Ankle Strap Heels
It's been a minute since we styled something classic, so we figured the ankle strap heel was the natural next step! We wanted to feature a piece that everyone can not only wear, but possibly already owns. This style shoe has definitely been on the popularity radar for the past couple of years + a piece that will stand the test of time. Basically, if you're looking to invest in a shoe for the long haul, the ankle strap heel is the way to go {bonus points if it's a block heel}.

Why Ashley Loves Ankle Strap Heels
"These heels have been my go-to. Have literally emailed the corporate office of this company to remake them because they're comfortable while killing it with any outfit. I'm not the only one - many friends have borrowed these and also fallen into happy love with them. I love the sass that an ankle strap brings to an outfit. GNO? Date? Leave those profesh pumps in the closet and take your ankle strap glam for a night on the town!"

When I asked Ashley what she was planning on wearing for our shoot she responded with, "just doing a black skirt and white shirt...super basic". My response - "by super basic you mean SUPER CHIC" - + SHE.IS.CHIC! Ashley's look is all business + I'm 100% here for it! I love the thicker ankle strap of her heels + they streamline her classic look! Plus, you can never go wrong with a black + white color combo, especially with these pieces {but that's an entirely different feature for our series}!

Why I Love Ankle Strap Heels
"When comfort meets style I'm SOLD! Which is why I'm naturally drawn to the ankle strap heel. I don't know if it's because I'm almost 30, but I've been adding pieces to my wardrobe that make my life more simple and are practical overall {cc: low block heels over everything; see also: I can chase around my almost 4 year old in these}. Not to mention, the classic style plays well with multiple looks or any vibe you're going for. + you know how I feel about style mileage!"

I scored my ankle strap heels from TJMAXX this past spring! I'm pretty sure they were under $20, so naturally I bought them in nude too! You can catch me in these any day of the week - whether it's with a skirt or my favorite pair of jeans. This time around, I chose my floral print jumpsuit - another TJMAXX find + a look I have styled for date nights + weddings! The classic black heel anchors my flirty print + balances out the cropped style!

Do you own a pair of ankle strap heels? If so, how have you been styling them? Also, how many pairs are too many? Asking for a friend aka I currently own them in black, nude + light blue!

If there's a piece you'd like to see us style in the coming months, holla at ya girls in the comments or DM us on our shiny new Instagram account - @sincerelycurrently! We're doin' big things Y'ALL!

Thanks for hanging out with us + be sure to check out Ashley's point of view, here!
