slingbacks and easter sunday

The higher the heel, the closer to heaven—but flats are far from damned. Streamlined designs, modern details and, of course, comfort are a flat's saving graces. D'orsays and ankle straps are well-established (and appreciated) styles, but elbowing their way to the top of my wish list are slingbacks. The back strap is a preppy, casual nod to spring while the sharp, defined toe is smart and sophisticated. Message sent: I'm fun, AND I've got it together. The pair I ordered last week definitely has a spot reserved in my suitcase for this weekend in Minnesota. I haven't decided what to wear on Easter Sunday, but whether it's denim + sleeveless blouse or skirt + blazer, this shoe will work: polished, but not overdone. The last thing I want to do is shuffle through church in too-high heels or spend all day chasing little cousins in a pair that was clearly not made for walking. What are your plans for the holiday? Will you gorge on Cadbury eggs or marshmallow Peeps? More importantly, what will you wear?
