In the summertime, finding a look that withstands the southern humidity is a challenge in and of itself. I found this darling little blouse by Pomander Place via Tuckernuck earlier this year (I’ll share a more breezy, short sleeve option later on the post) and it features the dreamiest sleeves. I paired it with white cropped pants from Ann Taylor and the Perfect Emma in Navy Suede from my favorite New York-based, female-founded company Sarah Flint. They have just enough of a heel to give you a more elevated look, without being uncomfortable if you decide to take a little walk through the neighborhood before or after brunch. You can also go with Natalie also in Navy Suede you prefer a flat.
One of the features of the Perfect Emma that I love the most is the tortoise detail and block heel. While I do love to wear heels from time to time, block heels are what I always go with. It’s easier on your feet in the long run, and if you’re looking for a heel that will take you from brunch to the boardroom, the Perfect Emma is the perfect option when you want a beautiful shoe that is comfortable too.
I found my white cropped pants from Ann Taylor a few months back, and they feature a high waist, are fitted around the hips, and feature a wide cropped leg. Finding pants that fit right has always been a challenge for me, at 5’3”, cropped pants are a good option for me. They hit just above the ankle and are at their most flattering when paired with a pump or block-heeled shoe.
About The Perfect Emma
The Perfect Emma is beloved by bloggers Krystal Bick (This Time Tomorrow) and Blaire Eadie (Atlantic-Pacific) as well as well-known personalities such as Amal Clooney and Alexa Chung. The shoe features a triple-dyed Italian suede upper and one of my favorite features, a Tortoise printed patent leather heel. The inset block heel, expanded toe box, anatomical arch support at 6mm of extra footbed padding guarantee your feet will be just as comfortable at the end of your workday as they were when you first stepped foot into the office.
In addition to navy suede, the Perfect Emma is available in Black, Taupe, and Merlot Suede, Chocolate Leopard Haircalf, and Sand Calf.
This shoe should fit snug right out of the box but will widen over time. Since the fit is similar to the Natalie which I own in several colorways, I went with my usual size, 36EU/6US, and the shoes fit just right.
If you have specific questions about fit, I recommend scheduling a virtual styling appointment with a stylist for the best fit for you.
