As many of you now know, I am a Master of Science (literally! That's the title that preceeds my degree), and spent more than a decade of my life (how did I get this old?!) working in a chemistry lab before I realized my passion had shifted from science to style and I started doing this full time. So when I saw that Mary Arnett of of Ssh-oes was a former Biochemist, I was instantly curious enough to send her a hello and ask about her shoes!

Mary was kind enough to send me two styles of my choosing, and Reader, I was so pleasantly surprised that I kept telling G how amazing they were every 5-7 steps while we were out shooting them!

My favorite look we shot was with the Mary Pump in Pewter. This is what Mary calls her "classic heel", and the description couldn't be more perfect. This pump is chic, simple, sophisticated, and ridiculously comfortable. After my first time wearing them, I had no blisters or sore spots.

I also happen to be in L-O-V-E with the little red heel!

G commented to me that he couldn't believe how quiet they were, especially in our echo-filled, wood floored home.

Sizing notes: the Ava Sandal in size 6 fits just right, and the Mary Pump in size 7 is slightly too big, but a heel spacer fixes the issue. I am usually a 6.5. And even though the Ava Sandal pics didn't make it into this post, I've been wearing them constantly with my summer dresses!
