Oooh love those metallic oxfords from Express. I've been looking for the right pair and at $24, you can guess who is going shopping this weekend!...

Hate the clogs too. They're so chunky. But love the neutral and coral.

I'm in love! Those towering wedges are awesome :o). Tribal, nude neutrals, and metallic are fun too (and you can never fail with coral if you have tan skin!).

Question: The metallic flats are adorable and I really want to purchase them, but how would I wear it? What kind of outfit? Anyone have any ideas?

I have the same question as Claudia - love the metallic oxfords - but what do you wear them with?!

I cannot WAIT to bust out the outrageously high wedges!

I'm loving the clog trend, as well as the bright colors and corals, and I've always loved animal and tribal styles.

I love the clogs and the lace up flats. The clogs are good for a bohemian type style and the I would wear the silver oxfords as a neutral.

Those "clogs" look suspiciously like sandals! I bought gray oxfords last weekend at H&M for $17.95. I can't see myself wearing them in the summer, but I think they'll be a great transition shoe for spring!

Michael Kors had a really cute pair of clogs on 6pm earlier this week, but they ran out of my size too fast in the lighter leather. (They still have them in the darker suede though: http://www.6pm.com/kors-michael-kors-punk-t-moro-sport-suede)

There are also still some cute sky high summery MK wedges listed on there for $20 a pop through Friday I think- mine are already in the mail. :-D
