I spent three years lusting after the Simon Miller Bonsai Bag, before finally purchasing one on The RealReal this fall. Now, the brand has introduced shoes, giving me yet another item to obsess over for the foreseeable future. The collection, which debuted in February, features six different sandals in a range of vibrant hues. My favorite styles include the Birkenstock-like chunky slides and the patent leather toe thong, but the shoe that's topped my birthday wish list is the Short Tee Heel in golden orange.
This kitten-heeled slide won me over with its simple design and its boldly colored insole. I also love the clear PVC double straps — an accessory trend I couldn't get behind until now. I'd like to wear these open-toed wonders with a pair of dark-wash jeans and a fun knit as it gradually warms up, but once spring is in full swing, I'll pair them with all my breezy dresses, cropped silks and my baby Bonsai Bag, of course. Here's hoping that it doesn't take me three years to finally buy these, or that someone gifts me them for my upcoming 25th birthday (I'm a size 7, by the way).
Simon Miller Short Tee Heel, $390, available here.
