Spring has sprung in my neighborhood, which means that I really need a pedicure, stat. But it also means that it’s time to face the age-old question of what’s appropriate for the office. Are peep toes and slingbacks fine for day, or should they be saved for date night?
Toes and heels are fine for the office, in moderation — just like any other skin, of course. If you opt for a peep toe, pedicure first; if you’re not a fan of fancy nail colors, go neutral or nude, but make sure your nails are cleaned up and presentable. Please.

If you’re not a fan of the peep toe, think about a toe that shows a little toe cleavage — opt for a vamp that stops just short of where your toes meet the top of your foot. Toe cleavage is fine for the office, but stick with a low kitten heel; anything too high will make your foot wrinkle. And no one wants that.

Slingbacks are always office-appropriate (unless your office prohibits any kind of open shoes all together, of course). Slingbacks typically come in more tailored styles, but the open back gives this look a little va va voom. And, once again, please pedicure! Grab a pumice stone or foot file at the grocery and give your heels a good once-over in the shower; slather them in a rich lotion or Aquaphor and slip on some socks. And you’re done!
Your turn: Do you show your feet off at work, or do you save them for your off hours?
