Stepping Out In the Nude: Sandals – UPDATED!

August 12, 2015

Wooohoooo! We made it! Welcome to the final soirée for our sexy series entitled, Stepping Out In the Nude! Have you added a few new nude pairs to your closet? Okay, here we go! Let’s finish strong with that sassy girl, the Sandal!

Sorry, girls. SuthinGirl doesn’t “do” flat sandals. They make her legs look short and even worse, she feels frumpy. Boo. Hiss. This edition of Stepping Out In the Nude will focus exclusively on the nude sandals that provide a little lift and give you legs for miles!

Nicki Minaj has a better booty; but I have better shoes. ♥ Rihanna




For SuthinGirl, that’s basically the lightest bisque, blush or beige you can find. For my girlfriends with tantalizing tans or beautiful brown skin, we’re talking deeper shades.

Contrary to what you may believe, a nude shoe is not at all boring! Leopard, cork, metallics, and a variety of textures like suede and skins can serve as nudes and give the leg lengthening effect while providing an effortless pairing with most any outfit!

Bought them, brought them home, tried them on (again), and cried big fat fashionista tears into my rosé because I felt like Cinderella’s step-sister who couldn’t get the glass slipper to fit. They were just too narrow for me. Boo hooooo! If you buy and they work for you, please please send SuthinGirl pics!!

Girls, I love a nude shoe (oh, how I love a nude shoe) but lawd have mercy, it is time to move ON! I can admit this now that we have come to the end, but when I started this series I had NO idea how much I had to say about the nude shoe…all the beautiful styles and shades. It’s been great fun but I am soooo ready to talk about something completely different! How about you? Are you ready for a change?

Next time we’ll peek at sleepwear that’s sexy, stylish and anything but snoozy!
